Words With Friends

A mix of old and new in a long-awaited update

Words With Friends is receiving a long-overdue update that brings in some modern design and a big performance boost. Anyone who has played this game for a while knows that the app has generally been a bit sluggish and most noticeably simply stuck in the past design-wise. This latest update brings an interface refresh that sheds some of the ugly buttons and drop shadows for flat elements and a proper slide-in drawer on the left side.

Zynga claims faster startup times, better performance all around and improved stability to boot. All things we want to hear and experience in a popular app from a big developer. It feels to us as though there's still a bit more work to do, but this latest update is certainly moving in the right direction. Hit the Play Store link above for a download.
