Is anyone having problems with Words With Friends?
It sometimes causes my 920 to freeze and I have to soft reset to recover....
It's the only thing that causes a problem on my phone, sometimes it happens once and then I can carry on but yesterday it happened 3 times in a row when i tried to open the game.
It's annoying that I have to set the time and date every time I do a soft reset..what happened to auto date and time??!

WwF is the only app that has ever crashed my replacement 920 (the first one crashed daily). But it has only crashed it once.... I really do think the first batch of 920s had an issue that no amount of software updates will fix :/

This WWF app is definitely a pain. I even got the paid version. It used to crash my Nokia 920 once in a while, but lately it's been crashing at least a few times a day. Basically it just freezes the phone while updating and the screen remains turned on. Nothing works other than a soft reset after this happens. Extremely frustrating.

This is nothing new. Words with Friends is the one app that has continuously caused my Lumia 810 to crash. I'm thinking of not installing it on my 920 when it arrives because there's no way of doing a battery pull on it. I had an issue last week where WWF crashed on my 810 and then it wouldn't boot up; was stuck on the Nokia screen far longer than for my liking. I ended up pulling the battery, which is a real pain in the @ss.

I also have this problem. Crashed 4 times so far. I even want back to the store to give it a 2 star rating and reported it to Microsoft for 'poor performance'. There wasn't a reporting option for "CRASHES MY PHONE". I was hoping they'd contact me for details via email but nothing so far.
FWIW, sometimes WwF just crashes itself, but it usually takes down the whole phone. Have to reset with power & vol down buttons. Even when it does work, it's painfully slow when it tried to update a game.

This game now doesn't even open, just gives the splash screen start then closes again or never updates. I've heard friends with other OS's say the same thing happens with their phones. It's a bit of a pain as I have to carry my iPod around with me just to play it.

So over the weekend WWF locked up my 920 and force me to do a soft reset. Then I couldn't log back in and it finally locked the phone again. So I figured I would uninstall it and grab it again. But to my surprise the free version is now gone from the Windows Store and only the 2.99 paid version is available. It is also NOT included in my list of previous purchases. Did this happen to anyone else? Is your free version still working?

I have had the paid version from the beginning (HTC 8X) and it has been slow and occassionally would freeze the phone. That stopped for awhile and while still slow, it was stable. Starting yesterday (May 20th) it started just closing for no reason. I would go to open it, get the updating pop up, and then just close. Sometimes I would be able to select a game, and then it closes again. I have to try it 3, 4, 5, times, sometimes more to play on one game.
Anyone else see this just start happening? It was working fine on my wife's iPhone, so I am not sure it has to do with their servers.
