Can Wordscraper Successfully Replace Scrabulous?

So after the Scrabulous app was taken down. I tried the Scrabble app from EA on Facebook, and found that it crashed within the first page. I waited 5 minutes, then refreshed, and still nothing, which is shocking, since it was designed by EA (the makers of Playstation games. Their graphics are amazing, yet they weren't able to successfully create a working game on Facebook.

I couldn't get past this page:

So then I tried downloading the app again. This time, I paid attention to the 1.2 star rating out of 5. Still nothing. I am skeptical of the ~88,000 active users.

So then I received an invitation to play Word Scraper, which appears to have the same interactions/experience as Scrabble, but the players can customize their boards, so it doesn't look like a Scrabble board. However, it takes some time to getting used to playing with circular tiles, and now the double and triple-point tiles have to be learned again. Perhaps the two brothers from India can beat Hasbro. ;D
