Yes, I still play Words With Friends. And this new version that Zynga has released is absolutely amazing. I’ve always dealt with the somewhat clunky and terrible UI in order to have multiplayer, cross-platform games with my friends and family. Now I don’t have to deal with all that — New Words With Friends is actually beautiful and a joy to use. Sure you still have the tacky blue/yellow colors and some kids-level animations, but the entire app has been rebuilt from the ground up. It’s quick and easy to move between games, and the extras of leaderboards, lifetime statistics (letting me show off my 1000+ wins) and full Google Play Games integration are just amazing. It’s like Zynga finally realized how to build a game on Android, and put all of their skills and time into building New Words With Friends. There’s even a proper tablet layout that scales and makes use of the extra screen real estate. I still play this game just about every day, and I couldn’t be happier with the improvements here. It’s a bit odd that you have to download it separately from the other one, but damn it’s worth it. Download: New Words With Friends (Free, In-app purchases)
