Got rid of the app "scramble with friends" and...

Wow, has this forum changed. 134 views of this in short order and no replies. In the old days it would have been 20 views and 10 replies :)

Everybody's in the other forums finding out about the new shared plans and deciding what their last subsidized phone will be!

I know Scrabble runs in the background for notifications. I haven't noticed a strong impact on resources myself. But if it works for you, great!

You would be surprised.
I know that some developers are really quick to reply and respond to correspondence (Unified Remote, case in point! Great app too.) so I have contacted Zwynga like you've suggested. I have the latest version of the game installed on HTC Wildfire S (Stock 2.3.5) and not only does the game hang, skip time and fail to register movements but it also causes the OS to stall and to "load" as if the phone has just been turned on.
Similar issues but worse on my girlfriend's Desire (Stock 2.2.2), her phone freezes entirely and needs to be reset.
Hopefully I'll get a reply soon. If I get anything useful I'll post in on here.

..now my phone acts up a lot less. Camera messes up a LOT less now. Reading thru the comments of the app it seems a lot of DXs have problems with that app. Just passing it on.

Scramble with friends seems to be what is making my Galaxy Tab (tablet) freeze up.... I will finally have to reboot to continue, although sometimes I can get to the task manager & kill everything & it seems to help. Does anyone else have this problem? Is it just that it's using way too much RAM?? (galaxy tab only has 1/2 gb ram) I really love the game, but it's very frustrating! Does anybody know what's causing the issue?? Thanks!! :)
