Android App Video Review: Words With Friends Free

by Erik Fikkert

Words With Friends Free is a word puzzle game for Android phones. Most of you will recognize it as an exact copy of one of the most popular board games of all time, Scrabble. The entire point of the game is to offer a multiplayer experience that can be enjoyed at a slow pace.

Players can connect with their friends over Edge, 3G, or Wi-Fi and play a turn-based match or hop into a game with a random opponent from around the world. It's one of those games where the player will play their move and then forget about the game until it notifies you that it's your turn.

The animation was great, and the game played extremely smoothly with no issues whatsoever. It played exactly like a Scrabble game and the push notifications worked wonderfully. There is also the option to play a game on the same device too, which makes this game a really fun one for an impromptu party game against someone.

There really isn't anything for me complain about with this game aside from not being able to shuffle my pieces when it's not my turn. I definitely recommend this app for anyone who likes Scrabble. It's fun, easy, and doesn't get in the way. Check it out.
