Words with Friends is like Scrabble, and will soon be launched for Android by developer Zynga. The game was earlier exclusive to iOS devices and was hugely popular. It has more than 10 million users around the world. Words with Friends will now soon be available on Android phones. The experience, however, is likely to be similar to that on iOS devices.
The app is free and is supported by advertisements though the company plans to release a paid version of the game soon.
Users can play this online game with friends or against random opponents, and can play up to 20 games at the same time — all while chatting with other players within the game itself.
More importantly, Android device users can compete with iOS gamers in real time. Zynga, with its social mobile games, targets people who are discovering the internet on their mobile phones, a market that is set to increase as mobiles penetrate further.
