    Words with Friends now ad free, at a price


    PaulOBrien

    This might not be breaking news (in fact it's not)... but I just discovered it, so I thought i'd share it with you all!

    When Zynga's 'Words with Friends' game appeared on Android (it's NOT Scrabble, honest!), I was a big fan. Online play, multi platform but OH, those ads after EVERY SINGLE GO were so annoying. Ads in games are a fact of life, but if they are intrusive and the developer offers no paid alternative, then i'm out. And that's what happened to me with Words with Friends.

    Last week however I reinstalled the game to have a play and imagine my surprise when I found that ad removal is now supported via an in app purchase! The option, called 'No More Ads' costs 23 WWF credits, which equates to $2.99. Not the cheapest game in the Market, but not too bad either. I'm a happy camper. :)

    So if you've been holding off for the same reason, now is the time to return! Sadly the option does not seem to be in the tablet (Honeycomb upwards) version yet, nor is there an ad removal option for Hanging with Friends but, well, we can't have it all can we...?

    I would find it very difficult to in good conscience use any Zynga product.

    The same negative affect Apple is having on the PC / Consumer Electronics markets is being caused by Zynga in traditional games markets.

    Even Facebook are more trustworthy than Zynga

    Don't see why people cannot release high quality games with a demo and no ad's (Few hours to see whether you like it - anything genuinely great will still make tons of money.)

    (Advantage of Zynga is it is easy to avoid anything of theirs - Really should be a seperate adware section of the Market).

    • Hello. I've been using this smartphone since 2016, I went through the official upgrade to Android 5.1.1 and then to 6.0.1. Long story short I'm now with TWRP 3.2.3-0 and Lineage 14.1 (Android 7.1.2). I found some interesting bugs: one is that if you have low battery, about to self power off, and you switch on the torch, it stays on even after the phones is powered off, and you can't turn it off whatsoever, except plugging in the charger and switch on the phone again I guess, but I didn't try it. The matter is that if you let the torch on to let the battery discharge completely, and the light goes off, when you charge it again and switch on the phone you can't switch on the torch anymore, even tho the system claims is on, it doesn't beam any light from the flash led. The only way to "reset" this status is to open the phone, removing the back cover, unscrew 3 screws that hold a tiny bar and manually disconnect the battery (most rightside connector) and then reconnect it. Not even holding the power button helps. Another bug is that if you turn on the phone, and then, without putting it on stand-by, check with some kind of cpu monitoring app the cpu cores activity, the less powerful cores of the A53 are awake and running. If you put the phone in stand by and then re-awake it up, they are always on sleep or "disconnected" or similar status. Even tho it seems that this doesn't affect performance, so it seems that they doesn't show correct running status but still works. Last but the most important: the phone THROTTLES at room temperature!!! If you try a cpu intensive app, the cores throttles at 800 MHz or less, and if it heats more it goes down even to 200 MHz stuttering everything! I don't know if it gots bad thermal spread design or is it a thermal sensor bug, since in system monitor apps it shows temperature above 49~50 in idle while room temp is 20 to 23 °C and over 67-68 while running full calculations! Can anybody confirm or else suggest me some solutions to these issues? Thanks.
    • It worked well on my liquid a1 (running custom rogers rom). Should work on any acer based 2.2 roms I think. But I cant guarantee 😉 use at own risk.
    • I have experience this fine product by Honor. There are some features which are competing with expense mobile companies as well.I'm looking forward to buy honor 20 pro for some latest updated version of it.
