WWF Board Solver Cheat

You don't have to cheat if you don't want to, but it sure is fun laying the smack down every once in a while! 500-1000 points in one move is kinda funny PWND!

I hate these apps. I'm seriously like a champion-level Scrabble player, and it's very annoying "playing" against someone who can't tell the difference between there/they're/their in the chat window, and yet somehow is an etymological genius using words like "aciculae" on the board. Takes absolutely every ounce of fun out of the game.

I agree. I might not be a champion player but when I see people rack up points for words they clearly don't know the meaning of it takes the fun out of the game completely.

And how is it even fun for the person using it? Are they playing or is this silly cheat machine playing the game for them? The fun is in the points they get? Fake fun if you ask me.

Seems like this company is also so uncreative that all they make are cheats for popular games and walkthroughs for things like golden egg locations. Sad.

Cheats for games - Board Solver

This "cheat" is actually pretty incredible. Reading in the screenshots and solving the board is an extremely complicated process. It was a fun puzzle to solve.

Cheating isn't as prevalent as you think, very few percent of people actually cheat. The game is already set up to sit there and guess all day until you make some goofy word.

We have made a few casual games. Check them out, we have free versions of them all:
Mad Monkey
iTextFast
Evil Quiz
A Very Simple Game

Cheers!

Well, I'm glad you guys went through the challenge of making the app, so that others don't have to have any challenge in playing the game, not to mention totally ruining the game for their fair-playing opponents. And trust me, the percentage of cheaters is not small, coming from someone who has likely played the game more than nearly anyone else. Just search "Words with Friends" on the App Store, and you will be treated to a myriad of cheat apps. I have to admit though, beating someone who you know is cheating by using good tile/word placement strategies while simultaneously cutting off the board to your opponent is a little more satisfying than beating the average Johnny Fair-play. I'll check out your other apps in the meantime.

Words With Friends Cheats

Sorry Quazonk, hopefully everyone doesn't use this to cheat all of the time.

You are absolutely right about the myriad of cheat apps! There are also websites that help people find words and solve the board. The first "good" program to solve a Scrabble board was created in 1984! I know that doesn't make it any better, but it is an interesting programmer's challenge.

Hmmm maybe I should make an Anti-Cheat app to thwart all of the cheat apps!

Hey, now we're talkin'! I would honestly pay premium price for a "cheat buster". Frankly, if two cheaters play together, it would be a whole different game. It would become about tile placement and not about unscrambling words, which would be fine. The thing that really frosts my a$$ is when you ask someone if they're cheating and they lie and say no. It's like, OK, now you're lying AND cheating. I wish there was a way to prove who's cheating and who's not. I'd have a field day. You really should produce this app, there IS a market for it. Like an app that rendered it impossible to take a useable screen-shot of the game board or something. I'll be your first sale!

Awesome, keep us posted. Btw I just bought your app to support this project, even though I won't be using it for its intended purpose. Enjoy my dollar!
