Default Words with Friends older versions?

Current version seems to have a URL issue that covers the entire screen, can't get to the games at all. Had read that it may be because of Ad Blockers but I uninstalled them to no avail.

Didn't have the issue before so I think if I rolled back a version or 2 it may resolve the issue. Anyone know where I can get it?

Don't you need the latest version to play online anyway?

No. You figure, if someone does not update, they can still play, right?

At any rate, I got 3.22 and it didn't fix the problem for me. I believe the current version is 3.28.

The problem is adblock for android, if you restore your old hosts file you will be able to play words with friends, but your ad's will be back

you need to re-install the ad-blocker and restore your host file

What if I don't have an older hosts file to restore?

Then your certainly in trouble :) If the hosts file works like a windows host file, its probably blank by default. but dont hold me to that.

You dont need the file itself, just reinstall the app from the market and select "restore hosts"

If I were you I'd just install Wordfeud. They just came out with an iOS port so you can still get your cross platform play on. And the port isn't a buggy piece of crap like the Android port of WWF.
