How to cheat in Words With Friends (you monster)

how to cheat words with friends words333

Cheating at a game you play for fun kind of defeats the purpose of playing it, but sometimes when you’re playing those games you just get caught in a jam. Maybe you’re tired, or maybe you just got caught with a crappy set of letters. We’re here to help you not lose at the infamous Word With Friends in case anything gets in the way of you maintaining your legendary dominance. There are a few ways to go about it: websites, apps, or hanging out with an English professor. Okay, so there are two realistic ways. 

And if you use these cheats when you’re playing us, we will find you. 


Lexical Word Finder

Leixcal Word Finder

This website is simple, but works well. Basically, you enter the letters available and the website shows you the best word, along with a list of high scoring alternatives. The first word picked and the alternative words all have their point values displayed next to them. The downside of this is that it doesn’t help you if you’re working off of an existing word on the board. Sure, you could add that letter to the “Tiles at hand” box, except it limits you to seven letters in that box. Either only use six tiles and add the existing tile as the seventh or try something else, like the next cheat service on this list. 

Scrabble Finder

You can type up to 10 letters with Scrabble Finder. Not only that, you can click the word options and find out the definition, just in case you’re worried that the word presented is not a real word. Clicking the link to the word will tell you what the word is worth in Scrabble and Word With Friends. Since you can type up to 10 letters, you can include whatever letters are available from the board that you’re considering using. 

Word With Friends Cheat

Words With Friends Cheat is similar to Scrabble Finder, except it allows a limitless number of letters and display point totals for Words with Friends, but not the equivalent value in Scrabble. You can see a list of words that include your letters ordered from most to least points. You can also use a period to signify a blank tile and expand the word options even further. This can be used strategically by entering your tiles as well as a period as a spacer to see what words could be created with other letters, and see if those letters are available on the board. Did you know that “zarf” is a word? It’s something you use to hold a coffee cup that doesn’t have a handle.  

Word Plays

Word Plays

Word Plays is best for those who want the most points possible and don’t mind putting in some extra effort in their cheating ways. It lets you lay out the board exactly as it appears in your actual game and shows you a clear view of the best plays available. There’s more. Word Plays has a table on the left that shows how many of each tile is left. Are you curious how many E’s there are going to be? Now you’ll know. You could almost do a “card counting” kind of thing to figure out how likely it is you’ll pull an E soon. Word Plays features point values and board layouts for Words with Friends, Scrabble, French Scrabble, Word Feud, and more.

…Apps to cheat with on the following page


Auto Words With Friends Cheat for Android only (Limited Free or $0.99 Full Featured)

Auto Words with Friends Cheat

The apps work differently than the websites: most let you screenshot the ongoing game(s) and put it into the cheating app to see the best plays available. Auto Words uses the dictionary from the game to make sure that any word it recommends to you is valid. The problem you may run into with some cheating apps–which isn’t an issue with Auto Words With Friends Cheat–is that you play the word and are then challenged by your competitor about whether you know its definition, but you can’t seem to rattle off the meaning of “quixote.” With Auto Words you can click a little definition button and look it up before you get caught. 

Unfortunately, the free version of the app has a limited dictionary. It essentially shows you the top words with question marks replacing some letters that make up a word. Pay the money and you’ll have no question what those other letters are (it might be a word you’ve never heard). To get the most out of the app, you’ll need to pay a one-time fee of $0.99 to unlock the full dictionary. The app has an in-game mode so that you can go back and forth between the game and the helper. Auto Words tells you how to take a screenshot and once you’re in the app you will have the option of importing your “Most Recent” image or picking a screenshot from your picture library. 

Words with free EZ Cheats for Android and iOS (Limited Free or $0.99 Full Featured)

EZ Cheats is pretty similar to Auto Words but with a super futuristic neon scan animation that overlays the board once you upload the screenshot. That’s not all. EZ Cheats, at least from our experience, seems to offer better suggestions than Auto Words with Friends. Also, EZ Cheats will optimize your points by taking advantage of Double Word and Triple Word scores for you. There is nothing more important than utilizing those tiles. Okay, maybe ending poverty, but this is a close second. 

Auto Words and EZ Cheats each have the definition tool, which is great, and both have the option of taking you directly to your Word With Friends app from the cheating app. EZ Cheats also has an “Anagram Finder” that lets you just type in some letters and it will tell you what words you can make from the letters you entered. We like having this option, just in case your screenshot of the board wasn’t scanned properly.

You may think this app is the obvious choice for cheating apps, but you’ll have to pay $1.99 to get the top scoring words for the EZ Cheats app (instead of $0.99).
