iPad App of the Week: Words With Friends

Rich actually beat me in a close game by using the word 'win'

I try very hard not to be one of those iPhone people.  You know the type that obsessively takes it out and uses it for Facebook, Twitter or text messaging in public.  I like those things and use those functions too but I know it drives me nuts if I’m talking to someone and their eyes glaze over as soon as they get an alert on their phone and they have to check it straight away.  I do pretty good at not being one of those people.

Unfortunately, most of my social graces went out the window when a friend got me onto Words With Friends.  The concept is simple:  its Scrabble played over an iPhone or iPad.  Yet there is something strangely compulsive about it that I can’t quite explain.  I don’t even play regular Scrabble.  But its made me become one of those people.  Mid-conversation, if the iPhone or iPad has a push alert telling me its my turn, then I feel like I have to check my game.

If you want to get in on the fun, it costs a measly $4 bucks on iPhone (or you can get a free version with ads).  It’s also $4 if you want it on the iPad.  If you’re up for a game, my username is edotherocket.

  1. I always like word games. Lately a friend introduced me a new game EPELER, it’s a cute word arcade game. I need to make as many words as possible from the falling letters, and the goal is to clean up the world. Took me 2 days to see the ending~
