The Official Scrabble game became available yesterday, but how does it measure up against Wordfeud? Notice how I did not mention Words With Friends? In my opinion, of all the scrabble games, Wordfeud sets the standard.
Scrabble was developed by Electronic Arts, which is a major developer, so it should be pretty good. The layout is nice, and there are some additional touches that are nice. I like the fact that it tells you your potential points for the word before you play it, and the “Teacher” command shows you what you could have played. Just like the scrabble games, you can play against other Android and iOS opponents.
As with many apps upon release, there are definitely some bugs that need to be worked out. At first, notifications seemed to work fine, but later last night, they stopped working so well. It also seems to have an issue updating from the server. I find a work around is to go into a previous game and then go back to the main menu. These things will probably get worked out soon, but even with these bugs, it is already better than Words With Friends.
I will spend a little more time with it and then I will post a full comparison between Scrabble and Wordfeud. I will probably throw in Words With Friends, but honestly, it doesn’t have a chance. For now, I would love to hear your opinions in the comments below.
