Among the plethora of apps in the App Store there are game apps, info apps, learning apps, and many more. While the informative apps are very beneficial; it is great to have a fun game to play in your spare time. I have recently been addicted to a game called Words with Friends. The concept is simple. Picture the board game Scrabble, but with a colorful board and the ability to have Wi-Fi multiplayer games. Although there is a Scrabble app available; the cost is $2.99, while Words with Friends Free is obviously free! If you enjoy mind-puzzling games, then this app is a must.
Honestly, I have never been a fan of the game Scrabble and barely ever played it. However, Words with Friends is still enjoyable to me because you are able to have multiple online games going on at the same time. As of right now I am involved in six different games with different members of my family. This helps give the game a more fast-paced feel than Scrabble does. The multiplayer feature allows you to create games and challenge select players by typing in their username, or you can just find a random person in the world. The only problems with Words with Friends are that you must have a connection to the internet because there is no player vs. computer option, and there are ads placed on it. Keep in mind though, that the ads are extremely quick and easy to navigate past and should not be a problem. Additionally, if you own an iPhone or have an iPad with the purchased service, then having a connection to the internet should not be a problem.
If you are a fan of games that challenge your mind and you like to compete against friends and family, then check out the App Store immediately. If you are not sure whether to buy Scrabble for $2.99 or Words with Friends for free, maybe this will help. Words with Friends contains the same features as Scrabble including: online multiplayer mode, in-game chat with your opponent, shake to shuffle letters, bonus tiles on the board and many more. The difference between the two is Scrabble’s ability to challenge the computer without the need of an internet connection. However, this would only be a problem for users who have an iPod Touch that needs a Wi-Fi connection. In my opinion this small difference is not enough to pay $2.99, when I could play Words with Friends for free. Overall, Words with Friends is an extremely addicting and competitive game that is great for the whole family. You have nothing to lose, head on over to the App Store and download Words with Friends for free to give it a try!
