Too many ads
MontyAyE on 2/19/2018
This game was great until all of a sudden the App Store would constantly open while playing a game! Very irritating!
Themadhattersdaughter on 2/19/2018
I downloaded this game about a month ago but this last week or so I can't play the game with out it going to the App Store and glitching the game so I can't actually play
Ads appear during games
Mdeaton6 on 2/19/2018
This is a really fun app but there are ads that take me to the App Store during a game. Repeatedly. When I come back to the app it sometimes just takes me right back to the App Store and then all the time is lost and then I don’t even get to put one answer. It’s a great game, but please have this fixed. It would be appreciated.
sillycat101 on 2/19/2018
Too many adds
Its a 8/10
djirk on 2/18/2018
It’s alright besides all the adds, also you have to wait for your friends to come play which can be frustrating
used to be great !
heathenhealy on 2/18/2018
super fun game, i had this on an old device and i downloaded it on my new phone a while back. i’ll be in the middle of a round and i get redirected to the app store. i close it out and go back to the game and it happens again! i literally can’t type two letters without getting redirected. sometimes the app will take me to safari and open some random scammy website. i don’t care about the ads on the home screen of the app, but in the middle of a round ??? it seems really scammy and it’s really irritating.
Too many advertisements
deannia M on 2/18/2018
I love this game and would rate it higher if it wasn’t for all the advertisements. Especially when you are in the middle of answering questions and an advertisement pops up and you can’t finish and loose a round because of it. Also there needs to be more categories to answer they get repetitive and boring.
Chris28269 on 2/18/2018
I think the game is pretty good except for a couple of things: you should get more time to answer questions, and some of the answers I submit are correct but the game says that it is an invalid answer. Like I said, this game is fun but could sure use some improvements.
Ads are too much
BjPeto on 2/18/2018
Game play is awesome but the pop ups are relentless. You get redirected to the App Store multiple times DURING gameplay making it impossible to finish a round.
LOVE the game, please fix the endless loops of ads!
MarlaJo1 on 2/18/2018
Game is great. And I get that there will be ads. However, often ads come up *during* a round ... and when you try to go back to the round (which is being timed), it stays for a second or two ... only to AGAIN re-direct into another ad (usually to the App Store). It’s an endless loop that results in losing the round bc the time ticks away during this whole time. VERY FRUSTRATING. I saw another comment requesting screenshots of this. I have them, but I’m not sure where / how to attach them.
Spam ads
kt4589 on 2/17/2018
*update* I have emailed yall. Will update review when y’all respond to me. The game itself is addicting! But as of late I can’t even finish a round without being spammed with ads that constantly open the Apple App Store over and over. By the time I get it to stop I only have a few seconds left to attempt the round. Please fix this!
yall uhhhh DUM

Force Close App Store Loop
Grandma_Baguette on 2/17/2018
The ads are sooo annoying! I saw another comment about getting stuck in a loop of being sent to the App Store, and it’s been losing me rounds. I can’t play the game anymore, it’s just too frustrating.
annoying ad problems
Chenzidore on 2/17/2018
the game is fun but for some reason it continually opens the app store while i’m in the middle of playing. completely ruins the experience. please fix.
Fun Game but...
Rachaellair on 2/17/2018
It’s very addicting and a fun concept, but the ads make it so bad. Usually I am okay with ads, but the ones in this app take you out of the app. Unless you are willing to pay to remove them, I would not get this game.
Jc74mom on 2/17/2018
Apps are annoying! Get 6-7 In A row, rapid fire
Love the game but needs fixed
PAfemale78 on 2/17/2018
This game is addicting and fun. But...I do have to say that the ads are a bit much. I understand they are necessary and I have the option to pay to get rid of the ads, but You can barely play the game with the ads to tell if the quality is good enough to pay for. There are too many ads to begin with, then they sometimes randomly pop up during a round causing the timer to run out and no chance of winning the round, sometimes the game gets in a spam type thing where during a match it will keep taking me to the App Store to random different apps or wherever. I’ve already had it kick me to a porn video. I was like whatever, but then I thought about how kids are probably playing this game too. So, can we please get the ad issues and glitches under control? I’m sick of losing rounds for nonsense. Thank you!
Qwertee11 on 2/17/2018
This is a great game. The concept is awesome. It’s executed well, but I have one crippling complaint. Whenever you open the app, the first five minutes, it opens pages on the App Store without you clicking anything. This makes it unplayable, and it takes you out of the game. It’s awful.
Don’t waste your time
williha23 on 2/16/2018
I don’t like it, it makes absolutely no sense. After you do your challenge the " person/computer" the
Very sad

ADS!!! on 2/16/2018
Ok so I love this game, but sometimes literally cannot play it because of the ads!! When it happens, it automatically goes to the app store and won’t stop going to the app store. since there’s a time limit on the game, i always end up losing because of it! i wish it wouldn’t happen, i’m literally thinking of not playing it because this is happening.
Good job
Katelynn1! on 2/16/2018
Great game super addictive!
Pop-up ads
Savannahlovesmax on 2/16/2018
This game has become nearly impossible to play, because when I’m playing the app sends me to the App Store it opens safari for advertising. This causes me to loose and an ungodly amount of pop ups try to scam me. The game is nice and all, but this is just infuriating. Not to mention the fact that I can play game against someone, have my game freeze, and when I come back it keeps any coins I spent in the game but not the progress I made. Please fix this.
Stay away from this game!
radishi on 2/15/2018
The game itself is really fun and addicting. But they’re running some shady ads that are malicious. You can’t even play the game itself because they constantly auto-send you to the App Store even in the middle of a match. Also got me with some ad-ware or malware because it affected my phone browsers too. Constant ad pop-ups that override my iOS settings. I couldn’t even use my browsers until I deleted the app. Buyer beware!
Fun but the ads hijack my game
Danno210 on 2/15/2018
Every time it’s my turn to play, as soon as the countdown timer begins I’m taken out of the game, into Safari, where a CONGRATULATIONS! YOU'VE WON A $1000 AMAZON GIFT CARD! page opens. Until I get back into the game, I’ve lost at least 5 and upwards of 10 seconds off of my clock. If that didn’t happen, this game would be fantastic but this aggressive ad behavior doesn’t create within me the urge to spend $3 to upgrade.
App has virus ads
134ckbnn on 2/15/2018
I have played this game for 6 months with no problem but within the last version upgrade it contains some sort of virus ad problems. While in the middle of playing the game it redirects you to the App Store. It also redirects to a pop up to a “amazon winner scam”. I do NOT recommend getting this app until it is fixed. I have emailed the developer multiple times with screenshots.
Valleygirl99645 on 2/15/2018
Okay I love this game but every time I tap the screen it takes me out of the game and to safari for an add even when I’m in the middle of trying to make up words!! It is so annoying and I’m decent alit deleting because I can’t do anything without an add showing up witch is so sad that you need to show adds every .5 second just to make money on a game!!!
Backing up reviewer “3Moot”
Veronicamy on 2/15/2018
Been playing Stop for over a year and it’s one of my faves, but backing up what reviewer 3Moot wrote recently: I’m also experiencing the game at random moments (sometimes DURING games, not just between rounds) popping over to pages on the App Store or random ads. (I’m trying to attach screen shots but not working.) I’ve got no problem with ads in general because that’s how we’re able to have free games; but this recent development interrupts games multiple times and goes beyond the usual annoyance. Obviously a bug needing fixing, if you’d please look into it. Other than that, I’m a huge fan of Stop!
Fun but...
K K $! on 2/14/2018
Ridiculous amount of ads!!!
Love the game
Stephanie Millien on 2/14/2018
I admit I am addicted. However when I try to buy out of the ad it won’t let me. Can I play without the ads...I will PAY
Kalli tufany on 2/14/2018
It is a great game but there are way too many ads and they interrupt you in the middle of the game
seriously NEEDS to be fixed
shaaiimura on 2/14/2018
this game is fun and addictive!! but EVERY time i play a new game, i get interupted by ads constantly going to safari/app store. this is taking LOTS of time in the match and results in lost lives. nothing is even pressed, it just pops up automatically whenever it wants to. i understand your reasoning for ads but seriously... i cant even play a match without multiple of them popping up during the match. almost all reviews include ad problems and you say that your fixing it but this has been going on for a while. PLEASE FIX. i cant even play the game
It’s good
Jonahrobot on 2/13/2018
Better than I first thought
Love it but kicks me off
Celeste1219 on 2/13/2018
I really enjoy the game but here lately when I go to type an answer an ad pulls up and uploads App Store causing me to be pushed off my game which causes me to lose. Why is this happening?
my opinion
Idk🔖 on 2/13/2018
I really think it’s good but I don’t like the time about I feel like you should get more time
KelsMolina on 2/13/2018
While Stop is amazingly addicting and fun, I had to delete it due to the ads. This isn’t normal ads where you wait 30seconds, learn about an app, and they end, but rather id be in the middle of playing and the app would automatically open safari and take me to a fake website saying I’d won an amazon giftcard. Definitely a scam and I never clicked anything! This happened on multiple occasions.
Acting buggy
Nanknob on 2/13/2018
Just started a few weeks ago. Really enjoyed it until it started acting buggy. In the middle of a game and it pulls up the App Store with some game it wants me to download. Close it out and go back to the game, just for it to open up again and again. All while your time is ticking down. Hope this gets fixed soon.
Too many adds
Trentbad on 2/13/2018
When you’re playing a game and adds are constantly popping up on the screen it is almost impossible not to get frustrated. Another thing I’m not really liking about the game is you have to rely on other people to play you back or else you will be sitting there until they play you back. Sure you can you start up another game but you can only sort of so many games before they want you to buy more “lives” to play more games. All in all I feel that the creator of this app only made it just for the money.
fun game
Hey Jealousy on 2/13/2018
i downloaded this game a few days ago and have already found that i am addicted to it!! it is a fun game to play in my free time and i love playing against friends. however, the ads can get annoying, especially when they take me to the app store. but other than that, would definitely recommend getting this app!
Fix your ad problem
Rajah760101 on 2/13/2018
I’ve been a huge fan of this game since it came out but now with all these ads and these pop ups taking you from the game to the App Store makes me dislike this game. Fix that issue.
Was great, now unplayable.
Uky2007 on 2/13/2018
Can’t play the game because the ad keeps taking me to the App Store when I’m not touching anything.
FIX YOUR GAME-Little girl on 2/13/2018
As I play this it stops and takes me to safari or the App Store and this is all happening today and it makes no sense FIX IT!!!!!!
XxPistol-Whip1xX on 2/13/2018
The Ads ruin the game, mid round you get an ad that sends you to the app store, and often when you go back to the app it sends you to the app store again and again a never ending cycle. Ruining the whole round.
Fun but ads
Ojnounhou on 2/13/2018
Ad keeps bringing me the the App Store every time I exit it helppppp. Idk how to post images with my review, but it’s tubi tv
Love it!!! But... ADS!!!
JoJoJo-Nah-B on 2/12/2018
This game is great and it’s nice to see a functional take on the classic game of Scattergories. BUT..... The ads are horrific! I have seen a complaint about this in nearly every review. The ones when the app has refreshed are the worst, as there’s no x until the game “loads”. Also one after like every round, after refreshing the home screen, and returning to the app even after the smallest of times. I see from irritated customers that it would be worth while to fix this. Seems like you’ll lose business if you’re not careful.
Jewelkid😜 on 2/12/2018
It is so fun, and easy to use. If you’re bored and have nothing to do, this will sure keep you busy! I LOVE playing this game. Me and my brother play all the time. See if you can beat me! (My username is beckyhasgoodhair) TRY TO WIN YOU’LL FAIL!!!
Herffsusuxuxu on 2/12/2018
Nice game
