words with friends

While I am satisfied with what the Nook updates have brought so far, I was wondering if anyone knows if Words With Friends or any of the other popular Android apps other than Angry Birds will be added onto the market?

Re: words with friends

I have "Words with Friends Free" on my Android HTC Evo.  Love playing this game but right now I think the Android version is not stable.  I have games go missing or after two or three turns between me and the person I'm playing with it will tell me I won the game!  I'd love to have it on my NC but I'd rather wait until they can fix whatever bugs there are with the current app.  I read somewhere on this board that somewhere down the road there will be a "pay" version of WWF for the Android that might be more stable.

Re: words with friends

I have friends who tried playing WWF on Android phones and it doesn't work.  Plus, it wouldn't be the same as it is playing on a phone because you don't have 3G.  At least for me, I might play a word game like the Scrabble iPhone app that lets you just play a game against the computer but I don't think the Nook would be an optimal environment for WWF.  My reasoning is because of the lack of 3G.  That being said, my phone just beeped, it's my turn in 3 games so I better go take them!  I'm at work and couldn't do that on my Nook because I can't attach to our WiFi with a foreign device.

 

Happy Nooking!

Re: words with friends

If you like Words with Friends but most of your friends have Android (or you play with random people) get WordFeud.  It is free and way better than Words with Friends.  (I mean, they are both just scrabble clones--the play is the same--but WordFeud actually works well).

 

The only functionality it lacks is that you can't play with people on iOS.

Re: words with friends

Yeah, WordFeud is a nice interface.  I have droidy friends who have tried to get me to play it but it's not available on iOS.  That's fine by me!  I'd rather stick with WWF because I have at least 10 games going at any single time and I personally like the interface better.  Not sure why it doesn't work on Androids, though. Very strange!

Wordsmith seems to work well.  I'll look at Wordfeud.

Re: words with friends

I play WWF on my LG Android.  It has a few issues, like it screws with the usernames sometimes, but the game works great on the go and I can continue on my home computer thru Facebook.
