I love Bonza. But it does get a little difficult. Using hints are expensive; you will run through your coins quickly

Lexathon is the only thing my wife uses her smartphone for other than texting and talking. Its like boggle.

WordFeud rocks my world. Making a random Scrabble like board is a great twist, and makes for a more challenging game.

They allow you to use tech words?

(pissed that linux *still* isn't allowed in most word games)

7 Little Words: This item is not available in your country. This is the first time I've seen this in the play store for SAfrica...

Wordfued. Basically a rip off scrabble. It allows you to play anyone in the world one nifty addition is a random board which jumbles up the two/DL/tw/DW score places meaning you can get 3 or 4 two for one word. Its both addictive and infuriating at the same time.

My absolute favorite Android word game is Letter Quest: Grimm's Journey. i love the combination of a hero/adventure and word game, the graphics, and the way the game keeps challenging the player to find words in different ways: sometimes only 3 or 4 or 5 or 6 letter words, or words without certain vowels, avoiding plague or cracked or spiked tiles or using them, etc. I love that you get "treasure" and can buy different power ups with the virtual treasure--better armor, health, potions, etc. It's fun and addicting. When I get to the end, I start all over again. I hope the creator (Bacon Bandit Games) will come out with their endless version soon.
