EA Games Releases Scrabble To The Android Market For Free

There have been so many Scrabble clones on the Market lately, the most popular being Words with Friends and WordSmith. Both are great, and deploy all the usual rules and features one would come to expect from a Scrabble-esque game. Being able to smack talk the competition with in-game chatting, cross platform competitiveness, and being able to play multiple games at the same time is just a few of the features the official Scrabble game has. 

Words with Friends has been plagued since the early days with a seemingly endless amount of development issues which Zynga still seems to be working on, so hopefully Scrabble doesn’t have the same fate. Go grab it on the Market for free, and let us know what you think. And if you’re feeling froggy, feel free to find me and challenge me.

Market Link

Cheers everyone who sent this in!

    as much as I love scrabble, I almost can’t play this app due to the plethora of ads and constant crashes.  furthermore, there is no single player mode.  I would gladly pay $3-$5 for an ad-free & single player version…

  • Jellyfishhal

    I too would pay not to have an ad after every single play.  I am having issue where the game won’t update – the only way I can get to my ongoing games is to start a new one and then abandon it.  Anyone with this issue or any ideas?

  • Dorianne

    I would gladly pay for this app to get rid of the ads.

      Also, the random opponent takes way too long. The Scrabble for Palm Pre Plus was much better when it worked. It quit working all of a sudden, and in spite of multiple bad reviews, EA Support never reponded or fixed.

    This is probably one of my favorite WordPress plugins because it allows
    you to hi-light (and in a way reward) active blog commentators.

    I paid $32.67 for a XBOX 360 and my mom got a 17 inch Toshiba laptop for $94.83 being delivered to our house tomorrow by FedEX. I will never again pay expensive retail prices at stores. I even sold a 46 inch HDTV to my boss for $650 and it only cost me $52.78 to get. Here is the website we using to get all this stuff, LiveCent.com

    Wordsmith works just fine for me and my wife…

    how much better is wordsmith or wordfued than wwf??

  • http://twitter.com/tittlemanscrest Stephen Parker

    The adds are ridiculously annoying on this app. 

  • Booboolala2000

    I’ve noticed that it is much speedier on wifi than on 3g. Has anyone tried on lte? Better than wwf though. By a mile. Droid Charge here, just not in my lte area at the moment

    Phone reports there’s not enough space to install the item, yet according to the OS, there’s plenty. EA Fail.

    It is Wordfeud!

  • Douglas Adams

    Looks like it’s US-only (or at least, it isn’t available for India). Sad :-(

  • Sleepininca

    Could this have more ads?! Piece o shite

    Wont touch a another EA game even if its free – They re-nigged on Need For Speed by increasing the price even after I bought a copy at $4.99 now they want $9.99 for the same game.

    terrible….somehow worse than WWF due to the lag. runs for shit on my OC’d OG.

  • http://twitter.com/jamieandjamie James Geist

    Yup, uninstall yo ass outta here Scrabble.  Notifications don’t work for shit, apparently its completely shutting down when I leave the program.  Slow as hell, and just not as beautiful as its knockoff cousins.  Too bad, I was excited to have notifications for one of my Word games that were actually reliable.

    There some serious issues tried downloading DX and XOOM and it just gets stuck on Downloading for a long time, than tells me it was unsuccessful, don’t need it that bad, I’ll wait!

  • shineaqua

    Holy buggy as shit, uninstall ftw.

    The Ads suck…I would totally pay for the app without the stupid ads. Really? A full page ad after every play? Suck it EA…suck it long and suck it hard.

  • Screw_U_EA!

    The most annoying ads EVER!   You are forced to see a full screen ad after every move!?  WTF?   Uninstalled after one ridiculously annoying game.   Never again.

  • Granted

    It’s funny you mention rules, especially considering almost every douchebag that plays any variation of this game, uses one of those bullshit cheat apps, where you just enter your tiles. Andi know this to be true because some ass hat will usea word like “forp”, and I’ll ask the person what it means, and they are stupid enough to go “I don’t know what it means, who cares!?”….. Always the true sign of an intellectual genius! Using words you have no clue as to the meaning of said word.

    I think they are renaming the one variation to, “Words With Retarded People”.

      Only play with people you know and trust.  Cheaters will cheat.

      What kind of douchebag loser would use a cheat app on Wordfeud/WWF etc? Jesus christ some people are pathetic…

      It’s not that they are using cheat apps, it’s that they are simply guessing words because there’s no penalty for fake or misspelled words like in the real game.  Hanging with friends on iOS is just as bad as words with friends in this regard.. What’s the point of playing hang man or scrabble with made-up words?  People would rather beat their friend than actually enjoy a friendly game I guess.

    Force closes after my first place every game. A pop up seems to appear and locks up the program which causes the force close. Not worth the pain

      What foreign country would that be?

    Why doesn’t Wordfeud receive any love on Android sites? It’s not buggy and a battery drainer like Words With Friends. It just works! Don’t know if I should trust EA. I bought NFS Shift when it was 99 cents and now it doesn’t show in the market because it got relisted. Shady if you ask me.

      2 for being inbred, and you also get a point for how ever long your life of thinking being “first” to post in a comment section, of anything on the internet, drags on. Most likely the points won’t accumulate to a high degree, seeing as the mindset of one being proud of posting “first”, will likely end in electrocution from sticking something besides a plug, into a socket, forgetting to breath, or any number of other things that life deems fit, at an attempt of culling the population of the feeble minded.
