The recently updated app on Android means it automatically zooms in and I can't zoom out again unless I exit the app. It is driving me mad!!

    I hate the fact as soon as you place your titles on the board it zooms out not stay in so you can see ALL the words! I hate the fact that as soon as I open my game it falls from the top of screen and I can’t see all my players!! Stop shrinking the dam screen! I am so over and done with this mess! All so has anyone updated this month? I have not not sure it will help or make things worse!!!! This used to be a fun game but now it just is annoying!!!😡😡😡

    Update to the update: last night’s bug fix fixed my orientation issue, and a couple of other things others had complained about. Couldn’t find my point to say thanks.
    Sorry for thread-drift.

    2 stars....used to be 5. This inability to zoom means I play as little as possible b/c it's so frustrating.

    Narosiha, thanks for finding out how to zoom back out! Double tapping does work!

    Same here!! It is very frustrating and no way around it except to exit to lobby, then I feel like just leaving.

    I am having the same problem. what gives? very aggravating. it is the game, not the phone. doesn't t happen on anything else.

    I emailed about this problem too. They said to unzoom you need to double tap the screen. It works!

    Thank you for putting this out there. I thought it was my phone and I couldn't figure out what the problem was.
    PLEASE fix this!!!!

    I agree, it's one of the worse updates. I have a border round the Scrabble board now which makes the tiles barely visible
