Words friends says updating

Each day, Snapchatters submit tens of thousands of Geofilter designs for their engagements and weddings, parties, vacations, graduations, and so much more.Starting today, we’re making it easier to design a custom Snapchat filter!

Sahgal said the update is launching as a new standalone because the company wants to be careful not to alienate existing longtime users who may be very attached to the game in its current form.As long as you had the updated Words with Friends with the Facebook and Twitter connect options plainly visible, it seemed like a super easy task.Simply hit the "Facebook" sign and follow the instructions. But for me and my i Phone 4, it definitely was not.I figured it might have something to do with the fact that the email address I used to sign up with Words with Friends on mobile was different than my Facebook email address.So, I installed Words with Friends on Facebook and it immediately presented me with a popup message asking, "Are you playing on Mobile? After clicking "Yes" it presented me with an option to sign in "using my email account instead" or my Facebook account."Our users really love stats," Vaibhav Sahgal, Zynga's general manager for the game, told It's now easier for random players to be matched up as opponents with Community Match— a Tinder-like feature that enables players to browse potential opponents by swiping right or left over their profiles.

The new app also includes an in-app dictionary with word of the day and definition support.

I can't say it's absolutely true, but when it comes to mobile word gaming, there's Scrabble people and then there's Words with Friends people. Everyone who loves Scrabble sticks with Scrabble, while those who just liked playing from time to time or never played at all veer towards Zynga's word clone. The other day I finally decided to open my Words with Friends play to more of my online buddies, opting to connect to Facebook.

At least, that's what I see when it comes to my family and friends. If you're addicted to word games—any words games—how could you not?

The "Words With Friends" upgrade comes as Zynga's new chief executive Don Mattrick tries to revive the company that leapt to stardom with games tailored for Facebook but was knocked off stride by a shift to play on mobile devices.

Zynga in August vowed to perform better, as its reported losses widened and revenues sank in the second quarter.

More than 7.7 billion "Words With Friends" games have been played, with the top five scoring cities listed as Makati, Philippines; Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia; Kingston, Jamaica; Singapore, and the Northern California coastal city of Santa Cruz.
