When I run Draw Something, I get the company logo then it crashes every time. Anyone else?
Did you try reinstalling?
I would contact the app developer and let them know that it's not working on this device.
I had similar issues (various apps) like that on my tf300. Restart the device and it should work normally.
Reinstalled. Rebooted. Cleared cache. Still doesn't work. I emailed developer...
Did you hear anything back from the developer or have you resolved this issue? Can you please give me a good email, I'm having the same issue and would like to contact them also.
Yes. I got this pass the buck email and I never got around to doing all their steps. I have already tried uninstalling, reinstalling. I even had to reset my device for another reason and it didn't work after that. If you decide to do all these steps, let us know if you are successful....

Thank you Paul, I have tried those steps already to no avail. Do you have the email address, I'd like to let them know it still doesn't work. What they will do about it at this point is anybody's guess.
You can find the email address to any developer by visiting the web version of the Play store and going to that app.
Note the link to "Email Developer"
(email@example.com) in case you're lazy
They got back to me very fast:
Sir Draws-A-Lot, Aug 01 11:02 am (EDT):
I'm sorry that you are still experiencing the same issue even after trying the steps we gave you.
Our team is now working to fixed this concern.
We hope to have the issue resolved soon, but actual resolution time within the game may vary based on request volumes and resources.
Thank you for your understanding.
Yeah I've been having this same issue. Words with Friends wont even open, but Scramble with Friends works fine.
I replied to my email and told them the steps don't work. Maybe they'll do something with more complaints.
I found the solution to Words With Friends on another forum, you have to uninstall it and download the app from the Amazon app store. You will also have to install the Amazon app itself. It's a little tricky but I figured out if you sign into Amazon in your browser (i used Chrome) then select the app and enable one click. Once you do that, close your browser then open the Amazon app and it will be waiting for you to download. When I tried to download it straight through the Amazon app, it kept giving me an error.
Also, once you have it up and running, do not update it. I made this mistake and it went back to crashing just like before. I repeated the above process and now it's back to running smoothly.
Interesting. I'll give that a shot one of these days, thanks!
