I’ve been getting a few questions on Words With Friends Word-O-Meter, so I figured I should compile a list of Frequently Asked Questions:
How to turn Word-O-Meter On and Off
Turning Word-O-Meter on and off is somewhat tricky. If you purchased Word-O-Meter, the steps to turn it on or off are:
1) click on the “More” button in the bottom right hand corner
2) The Word-O-Meter button is the one on the very right. The number in green tells you how many uses you have left, so in my example I have 35 Word-O-Meter uses left. When you first purchase Word-O-Meter, 99 will be in green, which means that you have 99 uses.
If the Word-O-Meter button is YELLOW, that means the feature is turned off.
To turn it on, click on the button, and it will turn GREEN.
If you want to turn if off, then click on the button again, and it will turn YELLOW.
There are some things about Word-O-Meter that is pretty annoying.
1) Sometimes when you are trying a word out, and you want to move a letter, if the letter is the one with the green cross, then it sometimes tries to calculate the word. This happens especially when the word is close to the end of the board.
The only solution I’ve found is to do a “recall” of all the letters back to the tile rack, or turn off Word-O-Meter. It’s pretty annoying.
2) If you click on the +, it will calculate a word and use a turn, even though you already tried that word.
The good news is that if the word isn’t a word, then it won’t charge you.
Will I have to pay for Word-O-Meter if I didn’t pay for it?
Apparently Zynga gave some folks free uses of Tile Pile and Word-O-Meter. If you see a number in Green already on your Word-O-Meter, those are the number of uses you get to use of Word-O-Meter. Don’t worry, you won’t have to pay for it, unless you actually buy it. When you buy uses of Word-O-Meter, your iPhone will ask you for your iTunes password, so you’ll know that you’re paying for it (Sorry I’m not sure how it works on Android or other platforms). As long as you don’t put in your iTunes password, you won’t be charged.
