App of the Week: The most popular word-game franchise gets an addition

By Keith Spencer

The world’s most popular word-game franchise has a new addition. Scramble with Friends is a fast, fun game of finding words in a jumbled grid that is undoubtedly as amusing and addictive as its predecessors. If you like Words with Friends and Hanging with Friends, you’ll surely love this highly competitive and fast-paced game.

Scramble with Friends improves upon the basic premise of a classic word scramble game, but allows you to instantly challenge your friends from thousands of miles away. In 3, two-minute rounds, the player with the highest score wins. Take advantage of power-ups, use freeze time, inspire, and scramble to gain that extra edge over your friends.

Log into your Facebook account to play against your friends or simply challenge a random opponent from around the world.

Scramble with Friends is available for free in the iTunes Store, however, the app is laced with advertisements.

An advertisement-free version is available for $2.99 in the iTunes Store.
