    Has anyone else had issues with the Scrabble iPad linked with their iPhone/iTouch? Here are my issues:

    1) I don't understand the difference between the "Party Play" and the Local Network play? I can connect with the Party Play, but not with the local network play.

    2) About 5 minutes into a game, when it's a players turn, the tile app doesn't respond. It doesn't register that it's that iPhone's turn. The other player's iPhone also thinks that (correctly) that it's another player's turn. Thus the game is stuck. It then seems like the game ends because the only way to fix it is to reconnect and I usually end up losing the game.

    3) The App description says that it saves games when the connection is lost, but it doesn't.

    Great game if it actually worked properly. EA's support site is pretty much crap. Anyone with some hints on making this work?

    I am having the same problem, it suggests turning bluetooth on and wifi, but I don't see how bluetooth is going to help if the iPhones are not paired to the iPad, and I could not figure a way to do that... It would be very cool IF it worked better...

    It has some kinks still. We can't get it to Sync consistently to our Facebook profiles so we can play on their network.

    I've figure out a way that works. Apparently the Bluetooth connection is more stable. Force the game to use Bluetooth by turning off the WiFi on the iPad and make sure that Bluetooth is turned on on your iPhones/iPod Touch.

    I've played a few full games with my wife with just the Bluetooth only on. It does seem to make it more stable. Don't get me wrong though it still disconnects sometimes. The last time I had come back from a 30 point deficit to win by 2 points and it crashed right as I put the last tile down, she had a q left with no useable u's :)
