Words With Friends allows you to fulfill your Scrabble addiction- anytime,  anywhere and with anyone all for free. You can buy the full version for $2.99 but, I think that's a little high to pay to get rid of annoying ads. The free version shows ads after every few answers. I've found a way around them though and all you have to do is touch underneath the ad and they give you the choice to go to the ad or continue with your game. There's no need to deal with annoying ads or pay …

Can be addicting but the beauty of this app (on iPad as well as Android phones) is that it allows one to play at one's pace as well as with friends and strangers alike!       Nothing about an age old game other than a great way to improve one's vocab. I only wish it has a dictionary within the app itself!!! Great that it's free of charge though!

Recently added to my iPhone! Multiple Scrabble games w/ friends. Great timekiller. Can't wait for them to fix push notifications though.

About this game

Wiki

Words With Friends is a lot like Scrabble but way better, because you can play with your friends online, meaning you could even play from the comfort of your toilet seat, how’s that for a selling point, baazing!

But before you can play any game you need to know the rules, so let’s get to it.

TILE PLACEMENT

The first word of every game has to have at least one tile placed on the star square. Each new word formed must share at least one tile of a pre-existing word. Words can be formed horizontally (left to right) and vertically (top to bottom).

SCORING

Each letter has a set value, so for example D is worth two points, O is one point and G is three points. If you were to spell the word DOG you would earn a total of six points. There are also blank tiles, although they carry no point value they can become any letter you wish, making them very useful for completing words that wouldn’t have been possible otherwise.

There are also premium squares spread across the board — DL=Double Letter, TL=Triple Letter, DW=Double Word and TW=Triple Word.

Premium squares are highly sought after, they have the potential to multiply your score greatly. For example if you were to play the word AX, A is worth one point and X is 8 points, you’d only score a total of 9 points. But if the X was placed on the TL square, that would increase the value of X from 8 to 24 points, bringing you to the new total of 25 points.

If you use all 7 tiles in one turn...
