  1. I do not like the automatic shuffle when I move the iPhone. I figure out a word, then set the phone down, then the word is shuffled and it is quite irritating.
    Can you tell me how to turn off the automatic shuffle feature?
    If I cannot turn the automatic shuffle off, then can you recommend to Zynga to put a button in settings to stop the automatic shuffle feature?
    I have sent this request to them multiple times. But I don’t know what their response is. Thanks

  2. In the personal statistics, there is a category titled”bonus tiles played per game”I cant figure out what the percentages mean. Anybody know?

  3. I’m not absolutely certain, but my best guess is that it is calculated like this

    Bonus Tiles played per game Percentage = (number of bonus tiles you played) divided by (sum of bonus tiles played by both players)

    Then it must just take your average of all games played.

    So for a single game, if you played on 6 of the double word tiles, your opponent played on 4 of them, and 2 of them were left unused (there is 12 in total on a board), then your percentage for that game would show as 60%

    Again this is just my most educated guess. The only other one that would even make sense to me would be it did number played by you divided by number on the board. But since 3 of those numbers for me are over 50%, that seems unlikely. I can’t imagine that even after subtracting the unused bonus spaces and the ones used by my opponent that I’ve averaging using over half them. Unless I hog those spaces way more than I actually realized.
