One of the many applications that I have been waiting to come to Android would be a replacement for Words with Friends, which is available on the iPhone and iPad. Wordfeud FREE is a great new Android application that allows you to play a Scrabble like game with either a friend or random opponent. Once you open the application you are asked for your email address, then asked to select a user name, which will allow friends to search for you to start a new game. Once you are all set up you can invite a user by user name or you can search for a random opponent, so even if none of your friends have Android devices, you can still take advantage of this great application.
When the application is launched it will bring you to your games list which shows the progress of all the current games. This will show who was last to act, which word they used, and how many points were scored. You can select any game from the list to view the board, make a move for your turn, or send the user a message if you wish. From within the main options you are able to turn on push notifications, so you will know when it is your turn to go. The game is ad powered currently, so it has a price tag of $0.00 in exchange for a few ads between games. Whether looking to kill some time, have some fun, or try something new Wordfeud is definitely a great way to do so. If you need an opponent to test the application with, add me (user - drm2blv) and let's play some Wordfeud!
