+ Universal App - Designed for iPhone and iPad
Here's a story straight out of the "man bites dog" pile. While games making the jump from iOS to Android are commonplace, games going in the other direction are quite rare. Wordfeud is one of the few games to land in that category of Android to iOS ports. Originally launched on Android as an alternative to Words With Friends before Zynga and Newtoy released an Android version of the game, Wordfeud is now available on the App Store. The Scrabble-inspired word game sports asynchronous online multiplayer with push notifications when it's your move, and works with current Wordfeud user accounts, and the game boasts over 2.5 million registered users to play against. The game does support cross-platform multiplayer between iOS and Android Wordfeud users, and can be played on both platforms with the same user account. The game synchronization between devices appears to be much smoother than Words With Friends' implementation, as it loads up the current game list faster than Words With Friends does, especially on the Android side of the app. The iOS version is available as a free download on the App Store, with ads that display between moves. However, you can pay a one-time $2.99 in-app purchase to disable ads. Wordfeud is available from the App Store right now.
