  • [Review] Play Illegal Words in Words With Friends!

    Is it illegal because it breaks the law? No. It's illegal because you're playing a fake word, silly!

    With this tweak you can play anything you want in the popular scrabble-like game, Words With Friends, by Zynga. Literally, you can play anything that you want to. This tweak is called MessWithWords and it's by a developer known as Brian Fox. The tweak does not have any settings to configure, you can just install it and start playing fake words in Words With Friends. The best part? It works with iOS 5 and continues to work with Words With Friends even as they update it!


    You can plop any letters anywhere on the board that connects with other letters and it will ask you if you want to play it (whether it's a word or not). Just tap on, "play anyway" and you will get the points for it. Want your opponent to scratch their head in confusion? Is something a real word but Words With Friends just won't accept it? Cheat Words With Friends and try out MessWithWords. Your friends won't know what hit them.

    I talked to MessWithWords Support through email and learned a little but about Brian and why he made this tweak:

    Anthony: I would like to ask you to tell Modmyi a little about yourself. You can do so in about a paragraph. You can include how you became a developer, your educational goals, or anything else that you want to throw in there.
    MessWithWords Support: Brian J. Fox founded the Okori Group in 2004. He sponsored Jay Freeman's development of a Java runtime for the first jailbroken iPhone, and was helpful in the creation of the Cydia store. When he has an itch, he scratches it, which spawned the creation of Voicemail Forwarder for jailbroken iPhones, where one can forward a voicemail to an email address. For more information about Brian, please see his Wikipedia page: Brian Fox (computer programmer) - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

    Anthony: What gave you the idea to release a tweak that would allow people to use illegal words in Words With Friends? Why do you think that people like to cheat in Words With Friends?
    MessWithWords Support: My friend and co-worker Dan Staudigel and I were talking about the fact that we couldn't play certain words in Words With Friends that we would have allowed in a normal game of Scrabble words that were meaningful to both of us, but that weren't actually dictionary words. We felt that these words shouldn't be considered illegal, because they are mutually agreed upon. Dan, an accomplished iOS programmer, immediately started to implement some of our ideas, and we found the results to be hysterical as well as useful. We thought that the rest of the world would like it, so we released it through Cydia (Jay Freeman and I are personal friends, and my company was instrumental in the creation of Cydia - see the credits.)

    Anthony: Are there any settings to configure in MessWithWords?
    MessWithWords Support: Just whether it should be on or not.

    Anthony: Do you have any tips about using MessWithWords?
    MessWithWords Support: It's not fun to cheat with it you get bored instantly, and the other party finds it obnoxious. It's much more fun to create games with specific themes, such as, "surfing" or, "social networks", and then use words that make sense for those themes, but that would never appear in a dictionary. In fact, Dan and I have been talking about a future product that provides specialized dictionaries for just this purpose. These dictionaries could be created and managed by a community of users, shared, etc. Just one of many possible enhancements to the already excellent Words With Friends game.

    Name: MessWithWords
    Repo: BigBoss
    Version: 1.0
    Price: $4.99
    Developer: Brian J. Fox
    Editor's Rating:  5/5

    Will you be messing around with your friends in the near future when you play a nice, relaxing game of Words With Friends? Share in the comments below!

      You're so cool man, you don't let the man tell you what to do... you break the rules and play words that other can't play. Tomorrow you should put something that isn't recyclable into the recycling bin, maybe go 5 mph faster than that speed limit, or even punch a baby when no one is looking.

      Who can't play the words I play? It's not my problem if someone chooses not to get this same hack and play words they want to, as well. What law is there that dictates that I recycle stuff? I thought people did it to be responsible and care. You sound like a total hipster liberal idiot who just wants to be oppressed to be trendy. It's my phone, in my possession, and I bought the app, so I don't need some jerk-off mafia company like Zynga telling me what words I can play in Scrabble.

      I always thought they should release "words with friends - Gen Y edition". All the famous company names we deal with on a regular basis, along with popular abbreviations like LOL, ROFL, WTF, etc... Words like "FACEBOOK", "TWITTER", "MYSPACE", stuff like "CPU", "DR", "HD", plus more. I wouldn't use it to cheat and put down something like "XMKASI", but to put down something meaningful by todays standards like "FIOS" or "IPHONE" or "SAMSUNG", "SONY", or even names like "XAVIER", "KYLE", "RONALD", "MARCUS", etc... stuff we see, know, touch, work with, do business with, subscribe to, etc... THAT is what I would use it for. The custom dictionaries thing sounds great. It's gotta be less than $5 though or its going to end up cracked on secret repo's out there.

      Doesn't sound too bad, sounds good for some sh**'s and giggles.Yeah,, this would be good for some words like "emo" that you just get lucky to find lands on a triple word, but you can't play it because "emo" technically isn't a word!
