Words With Friends 2 - Word Game was recently launched on the Play Store as the follow-up sequel to Zynga's popular Scrabble clone Words With Friends. It is something of an odd release as it is more an expansion of the original gameplay than a true sequel. This luckily means that you can carry over your account and any game you are currently playing in the original to this new release without a hitch. It also means you can expect all of the same gameplay, but with a few new modes and words to play around with. Read More
Chances are you're one of the everyone-on-the-planet who's played Words With Friends. Did you know there's other, shall we say, homages to classic board games available for your Android phone? For example, here we have
Pictionary Draw Something, a turn-based, doodle-guessing game that you can play with friends wherever they are.
Draw Something has more than a few similarities to crowd-favorite Words With Friends. You're able to add your friends or join a game with a random player, and play multiple games at once. Games are also turn-based, so you can create a doodle and let your partner guess what it is when they're free. Read More
Ah, Words With Friends. What was once one of the most anticipated games on Android quickly becme one of the most hated due to its bug-laden nature and lack of good support. The app has now received another update that NOT only brings "loads of bug fixes" - call me skeptical, but I'll believe that when I see it - but a new Words with Friends store. Yeah, a store.
So, what kind of things can you buy from this store? Let's call them... enhancements. While some of these "enhancements" seem to be basic and fair (like ad-removal for example), others ride the border of paid cheating. Read More
Exactly one week ago we told you that Words With Friends dropped Honeycomb support. At the time, there was little explanation as to what happened (even Zynga support staff was completely clueless), but things are starting to make a bit more sense now (albeit not much).
Zynga pushed an update to Words With Friends today that brought something new to the table: full Honeycomb support. I'm still not entirely sure why they decided to drop Honeycomb support for one week - but it doesn't really matter now, as WWF is now fully playable on your Android-powered tablet.
Ignore those two losses on the side - I forgot I was playing and lost by default. Read More
If you play the popular Scrabble clone Words With Friends on a Honeycomb tablet, then you may have noticed something a bit odd lately: it no longer shows up in the app tray. That's because Zynga - apparently unknowingly to its support staff - dropped Honeycomb support from the game. When one of our readers tried to contact Zynga asking why WWF was no longer supported on Android 3.0+, this is the response that was received:
Thank you for contacting Zynga With Friends Customer Support!
