Thankfully we won’t have to wait much longer, as it looks like Words With Friends is winging its way to the Android platform pretty soon.
According to a post on Phandroid, the maker of the popular iPhone game Newtoy Inc. has “hired a team to develop an Android version. They’re actively at work on it at the moment and are getting close to being done, so not too much longer!”
We’re very very excited about the prospect of playing with our iPhone-owning chums. We just hope that a UK dictionary gets added at some point, to avoid awful trans-Atlanticisms like ‘flavor’ and ‘color’. Ugh.
We’ve contacted Newtoy Inc. for some more information on Words With Friends for Android and are waiting to hear back.
Update: we’ve just heard back from Newtoy who have confirmed that Words With Friends is indeed coming to Android. Check back here for the app review soon!
