In Scrabble Free, how do I find friends through Origin on iPhone?

★★ Newbie

I'm trying to start a game against my Mum, but am unable to search for friends. We have both created Origin accounts.

 

TIA

Hi @cgreen1212,

 

You would need to add your mum to your Origin Friend List through the Origin desktop client that you can find on origin.com.

 Note: Scrabble being a mobile and Facebook game it will not appear under your Origin Game library. 

 

Once Origin installed on your computer, go to to top left corner and click on Friends.

Then Add a Friend.

A pop-up will open. Type in the Origin ID of your mum and click on Search.

A page with her profile will open. Click on Send Friend Request.

Ask your mum to log into her account to accept the invitation. 

 

Let me know if you have more questions.

I am having the same issue and will give this a shot but are you working on a solution for the mobile aps for origins account holders so we don't have to log onto a computer to fix this issue?

Or those of us who only have an iPhone, no computer. It seems I can do anything on my iPhone that can be done on a computer EXCEPT locate my friends to play scrabble on origin 😣

Don't hold your breath - EA doesn't really care about its customers

Log in to your account. Go to your profile and then the drop down go to friends. Better late than never?

This isn't working for me, the name isn't coming up. 

Is there another way to search?

This is garbage. Sitting at the airport and just want to play Scrabble with my mom. Don’t have a computer with us so I cannot add her as a friend. EA does it again.

It’s utter tosh - EA should be ashamed.
