  1. Two things:
    (1) Please update your allowed words list to include the 4 new two-letter words in the latest Scrabble dictionary: da, gi, te and po.
    (2) Please provide stats for solo play.

    • Hi Cynthia, I don’t understand your second point. We are not the developers of Words with Friends.

    • Hi Steve,
      you can not download Solo by itself. You probably need to update your current version of Words with Friends.

  2. my Windows Phone now does not have any option except Email Connect and Facebook Connect – did something change recently?

    • Hi jrm,
      try reinstalling the game or else Windows Phone version of the game is not up to date yet.

  3. I am sick of your incorrect scoring. I haven’t lost a game for at leSt three weeks Solo has won none but continues to be accredited with non existent wins.
    Please an explanation

    • Hi Sally, I’m sorry for your frustration, but are you referring to this article, word-grabber as a platform or do you maybe address Zynga, the game developer when complaining about the scoring?
