Words with Friends HDApp for the iPad

By Edward C. Baig, Bob LeVitus

The Words with Friends HD app for your iPad is for anyone who loves word games and puzzles. Similar to the real thing, namely, Scrabble, the Words with Friends HD app is a fun word game that you can play at your own pace.

Social media is all the rage with games these days, but most multiplayer iPad games are either boring or not particularly social. The Words with Friends HD app, on the other hand, is a most social game — and a ton of fun, too. It’s kind of like playing Scrabble with a friend, but because it’s turn-based, you can make a move and then quit the app and do other stuff.

When your friend makes his next move, you can choose to be notified that it’s your turn by sound, on-screen alert, and/or a number on the Words with Friends icon on your Home screen.

Try the free version (Words with Friends HD Free), you’re sure to be hooked. Then challenge your friends (although they often have other games going, so keep trying if they don’t accept your challenge right away).
