I don’t exactly know how many people have been playing Words With Friends on their iOS devices, but I do know that I can’t go very long without seeing a request on Twitter to play! Sadly enough my friend, I am not able to yet join you as my Android device is without the extremely popular (scrabble like) game. What I do have is the opportunity to play WordFeud which I am very happy with, although pretty terrible at but I may be able to join you soon after all. New Toy Inc. – creators of Words With Friends have recently added a group of Android coders who are actually working now on bringing the hit game for all of us Android users. They have actually been quoted as saying ” They are actively at work on it at the moment and are getting close to being done, so not much longer!” Amazing news and something I’m sure a lot of you are looking forward to as I am. Let us know what you think in the comments, but in the meantime hit us up if you wanna play a game of WordFeud while we wait!
WordFeud has long been Android users’ favorite Scrabble clone, but those wishing for the iOS-born Words With Friends of similar origins will be happy to know that the developers – New Toy Inc. – have added a team of Android coders who are currently working to port the title.
“We’ve since hired a team to develop an Android version. They’re actively at work on it at the moment and are getting close to being done, so not too much longer!”
That was the response our tipster – Jordan – was met with when he followed up to a question he’d asked earlier in the year when the developers were still exploring the possibilities of bringing their app to the market. While WordFeud is a fine game to fill that multiplayer Scrabble gap, Words With Friends will pull folks in by name alone and hopefully they’ll find a way to implement cross-platform multiplayer so we can finally play against all of our iOS friends who won’t shut up about it. [Thanks, Jordan!]
