Words with Friends App Review

(p.s. it’s 2018 and I’m looking back at this post and laughing. It’s been 8 years since I’ve written this and the WWF app is still mega popular, so much my kids who were just 7 and 5-years old when I wrote this NOW play it. And I have 2 more kids who weren’t even born that TRY to play it.) 

WWF is Words with Friends

First, you should know that WWF stands for Words with Friend and NOT World Wrestling Federation. The only wrestling here is of your mind trying to figure out what words letters make.

What is Words with Friends?

Let me explain the Words with Friends app. If you have played Scrabble before, this game will totally be familiar to you. Except instead of a board game – you are playing this on your phone.

This game gives chat and multi-game options. That’s right, you can play multiple games of Words with Friends at once!

WWF Gone Viral

This game has been spreading like wildfire. Not only because, who doesn’t love a game of Scrabble (I mean, Words with Friends) – but you can play whenever with whoever.

The real viral-ness has come out of the invite friends from Facebook and Twitter function.

How to Play

With a simple click, you can share your username on your Twitter or Facebook world. By clicking on this, you open yourself up to playing Words with Friends with your closest Twitter and Facebook friends.

This is exactly why I downloaded the app, to begin with.

Facebook Invites

My friends on Facebook started inviting me to play WWF. And then after seeing a ton of buzz on Twitter, I knew I had to download this game to see what it’s all about.

This Words with Friends screen shot may look old, because it is! This was snapped back on January 31, 2010 – soon after this popular word finder app launched. And we’ve been playing it ever since.

Here we are, a few weeks after I have downloaded the app and now I am totally addicted. Again, if you love Scrabble or word games, this word game app is for you.

I am going to mention this just one last time, this game is VERY addictive.

Download WWF

Words with Friends is free to download.

We hope you like the WWF app as much as we do! And we also you are prepared to be addicted.
