How to Play Any Word You Want in Words With Friends

By , Nov 28, 2011

Words With Friends has undoubtedly become one of the most popular cross-platform mobile games over the last few years. The Scrabble-like title allows users to pair up with both friends and strangers to see who has the biggest vocabulary.

The game follows all of the typical word-game guidelines. Each player gets 7 lettered-tiles, and garners points for using them to make words on a playing board. Typically, only real “dictionary” words are playable. That is, unless you have this tweak…

MessWithWords is a jailbreak tweak by developer Brian Fox that allows you to play illegal words in the Words With Friends game. It’s a simple utility that doesn’t require any initial setup or contain a settings page. Once installed, it’s activated.

And that’s where the fun comes in. After downloading MessWithWords, pop into WWF and start a new game (or play an old one). When you go to play an incorrect word, you’ll see: “Sorry, ____ is not an acceptable word.” Just tap the Play Anyway button.

The utility has worked seamlessly for us in testing. The only evidence that you have it installed are the ridiculous words sitting on the board. The tweak can also detect when an opponent is using a similar hack, so it’s a good way to avoid getting hustled.

All of this awesomeness (and believe us, it’s pretty awesome) doesn’t come cheap, though. Fox is asking $4.99. But if you’re tired of losing in Words With Friends, this will certainly give you a “competitive advantage.” MessWithWords is now available in Cydia.

What do you think of the tweak?

    Is it really necessary to cheat ? If you suck @ words with friends then maybe it’s time to play another game .

    Seriously, are you promoting this so called tweak to ruin a fun and simple game?

      We’re not promoting anything. We’re just telling you it exists. You’re free to do whatever you want with this information.

        Hey seb. Is there a free version of this?

    People really spend that amount on a cydia app that requires a jailbreak, wich is not always available? Lose the jailbreak and lose your apps? That i dont think i can justify.

      What the heck are you talking about? As long as you don’t turn off you I device when it’s on ios5 you’ll keep the jailbreak. Most people never turn off their I device because it’s counterproductive to the battery life.

        Not if you boot tethered.

    This is not new. I’ve had it on my phone since April and it may have been out longer than that. Even though Words With Friends has had many updates since then it has never been patched.

    This jailbreak tweak isn’t new. I only wrote about it on Modmyi to give it some coverage. It’s close to half of a year old or older now.

    You don’t lose your apps when u re-break your apps return… They got it setup like a mini app store…

    I’d use this as a prank app for my wife or other family members I play the game with, but I’d make it horribly obvious that I’m cheating, you know, with a word like FHUEIFNKL. But I’d have to use it at a key moment to get myself more than 100 points. After they get swindled, I’d resign so they win. I get my laugh and they get a free win. Sounds fair to me!

    Cheating is for losers, it’s one thing if you are cheating to enhance your own experience but if you cheat in a multiplayer game, you are pathetic. Even more so if you are willing to fork over $5 to cheat. Honestly I can’t even believe iDownloadBlog would promote a tweak like this.

    Wow. Cheaters lol xD

  • Jas God

    that tweak is old as hell, and the very reason I deleted words with friends.

    Ppl stop being so up tight don’t like it don’t use it point blank I’m use to make crazy as words to drive ppl crazy lol

  • Matt Klusek

    im actually in support of this. “june”, “russia”, “russian” are not acceptable words? really? why make a scrabble-based game that uses dictionary words that wont even accept real words? “lear”, “cloners”, “ditto”and “scats” are acceptable though. i play this and its fun but some of the most common words used everyday are not acceptable, so it is a little disappointing.

  • Jan Skrlj

    Words needs to update the accepted words list. There are a lot of words that you can’t use. And why does it allow the word “Zooey” when it won’t allow words like “Jew” “Nazi” “Nigger” along with a lot of technical words, but accepts all anatomy words (my wife knows them). Just BS I think.
    Still won’t get me to cheat. If you have to cheat use a cheaper app like Scrabulizer.

      I don’t get “zooey” either. The dictionary says it is a person’s name only, and that should bar it.

    Gotta love playing Words with friends, I find myself glued to it, instead of going to sleep. But the best secret with this game must be the ANAGRAMMER, to give me a little hint here and there in times of trouble.

    Actually its not cheating..Like me sometimes I use the ANAGRAMMER to give me some hints in times I’m in trouble..Just in case I’m having a hard time..

    I would definitely only use this as a joke as I don’t want my Words With Friends buddies to stop playing with me. I have been playing Words With Friends and Scrabble for years. If anyone needs help finding the right word,
    http://wordfinder.yourdictionary.com/ is a great word finder. It not only helps you find the best word, but
    it also gives the point value. I hope it
    helps you with your games!

    Cheating is dumb it renders your score meaningless.
