App of the Week – Scrabble

The recent TouchWiz update brought Words with Friends and made me realize how bad it really is. My friend and I had a lot of trouble connecting to a game and even when we did, it was very slow. It would take minutes to update after each turn. That is why this weeks App of the Week is Scrabble.

Scrabble is not a Honeycomb-optimized experience, but still works just fine. It will work perfectly on the original Galaxy Tab though. The game can only be played in portrait mode which is a bit of an annoyance but the gameplay makes up for it.

If you have ever played the original board game, then you will feel right at home with EA’s version of the game. The gameplay is quick and easy. The best part is that there is no wait time between turns (except for ads).

You can download Scrabble today for free from the Android Market.

App of the Week – Words With Friends Free

This week we are featuring Words With Friends Free as App of the Week. My friends and I have been playing this game for the past couple of days and it is a blast.

Words With Friends is a free game of multiplayer scrabble. If you have never played Scrabble, then I do not know what to tell you… It is a classic game!

Each tile is worth a certain amount of points based on how uncommon the letter is used in words. For example Z is worth 10 points. There are four types of bonus tiles DL, TL, DW, and TW. They represent Double Letter score, Triple Letter score, Double Word Score, and Triple Word score respectively. The goal of the game is to score as much points as possible by creating words that branch off from each other.

You can play the game one of three ways with a friend online, a random opponent online if you do not have any friends, or you can pass and play with a friend next to you.

You can download this game for free from the Android Market. If you want to play a game against me, just search for Dornblaser and hit me up.
