Words with friends

What does a Boston venture capital analyst do when he’s stuck in a subway squished between hundreds of people? Play with my iPhone of course. Usually when I download an app for my iPhone I become obsessed, involved and completely engrossed by it…for a week anyway. Funny thing happens after that week, I find no use for it, become bored or am amused by the next best thing. Until now.

Words with Friends which was published by NewToy last year has had me completely focused on crushing my online opponents for weeks now. NewToy has impressive product and development skills as they also released Chess with Friends pre WWF. Currently I am using the free version which is supported by interstitial ads as their lead generation system but there is also a paid “ad free” version out there.

WWF is basically Scrabble for the iPhone/iTouch with the ability to play against someone sitting next to you in a “play and pass” mode or one on the other side of the country.

I like to think there is a bit of an educational value here to, I get to pick up on words I don’t know and it reminds me of all those pesky SAT words I had to learn in 10th grade.

For those of you out there that want to play me my handle is Peterthekid.
