Snap Cheats with Overlay Support
In November 2017, Google changed their policies about apps that use screen overlays without warning or explanation. As a result, we replaced the overlay with a notification in the Google Play version of Snap Cheats. As using an overlay to show your selected word directly on the gameboard has been one of the most beloved features of Snap Cheats for years, we have committed to maintain a version of Snap Cheats with the overlay for download on this website.
Getting the overlay version of Snap Cheats is easy:
- Make sure your phone is ready to sideload apps. Click here to read about sideloading.
- Tap on the latest version of Snap Cheats below to download it, then tap the completed download notification.
- Follow the prompts to install Snap Cheats.
Some versions of the Chrome browser on Android can't open APK files. This is a bug. You can instead open the downloaded APK file from your phone's file browser.

Improved support for Words With Friends 2, especially for Samsung phones and tablets.
Snap Cheats Word Chums (Android) v2.0.1

Frequently Asked Questions
- If I purchased the ad-free upgrade on Google Play, will I still get infinite overlay uses with this version?
- Yes. If it doesn't, please let us know.
- Why did Google make you remove the overlay?
- They won't tell us. We believe it's a response to certain bad developers out there abusing the overlay feature to create very bad things.
- Oh. Wait. Do you use abuse the overlay to create very bad things?
- Absolutely not. We've been a trusted developer since 2011 and Snap Cheats has been used by millions of people for years and years. That said, never sideload apps by developers you do not trust, or from unauthorized distributors. Download Snap Cheats ONLY from this official website. If you have any doubts, you can still use the version from Google Play.
- Did you ask Google to help you resolve this issue so we can have the best version of Snap Cheats back on Google Play?
- Totally, multiple times. They refuse to tell us why the overlay isn't allowed, and they are not allowed to give us feedback when we propose solutions based on their complaints. When we asked to speak to a Play Store account manager, we were ignored, and when we talked to our other account managers from Google they could not get ahold of anyone from the Google Play department.
- Wow. It's almost as if Google doesn't value their most experienced and dedicated developers.
- No comment.
- I have more questions.
