Product Description

Wordsmith is a 2 to 4 player turn-based crossword style game. The concept is simple and fun. You have a 15 by 15 tile board with bonus squares for Double Letter, Double Word, Triple Letter, and Triple Word scores. You play words with tiles in left-to-right or top-to-bottom directions and earn points. The player with the highest number of points at the end wins the game.

Wordsmith features a score preview indicator that helps you determine what scores you might get before submitting a move. A must have for any serious players.

For those with busy schedules you can play slowly or for those that want to play fast you can do that too thanks to push notifications. I must warn you, this game is addicting!

Bought the paid version way back in October 2010 after playing with the free version for a week or two. The game has only gotten better since then. Beats the competition out of the water, including the overhyped and underwhelming Words with Friends. This is much much better.

After playing with Wordsmith for as long as I have, it's hard to go back to the competition. Features like the score previews and player stats are easy to get used to, and are really hard to get by without!

I'm a fairly serious Scrabble player and have played practically every Scrabble-like game (WWF, Wordfeud, Droidwords, etc) in the Android market; I bought the Scrabble game for my Kindle and own 3 physical Scrabble sets (standard, travel folio, pocket editions). I recommend Wordsmith unequivocally.

The developer keeps the app updated regularly, with both fixes and features upgrades. Well worth the price.

I'd give it 5 stars if it had a ranking system. I used to play WordFeud but it lacks cumulative stats. I wouldn't trust anything from Zynga installed on my phone. Wordsmith is the best scrabble-clone going for Android right now. Build in a rank system and it would be golden!

This is way better than the little hand-held video games. I play Wordsmith on the Droid with my long-distance friends. You actually have to use your brain to try to win...not just eye-to-hand coordination. Try to do that with a Nintendo.

This is a great app, very similiar to Scrabble, but more fun because you can be across town (Or Country for that matter) and still play a game with your friends or loved ones. The paid version will even keep track of your statistics over time. This includes wins, loses, ties, best word played, best word score, date of best word played and scored. It will also keep a running script of your games, who you played against and what the outcome was. Don't want to be reminded that you have lost the last 5 games against your smart-alec cousin, you can delete it. =)
As far as the permissions issue; it has been fixed already with version 1.1.3.
Amazon will either download this version to you directly, or update it after your initial download.
I downloaded the original app, installed and then refreshed my updates page and it showed an update for wordsmith.
I installed the update and was on the newest version.
Great app! Lots of fun for those who enjoy word games.

Works great on the HTC Thunderbolt, Motorola Bionic, Motorola, Razr & Motorola Razr Maxx!

I have purchased the app, but played the free version for over a year before I committed. This game allows me to play games & chat with people all over the world. It counts up your points before you submit the word, and gives you 3 chances to get it right before you lose a turn. You can play several games at a time, and with no time limit just put it down & pick it up when you have the time.

My husband has been travelling for work, but this allows us to still have game night even while he is away.

This is a very good word game. It has milar rules to Scrabble, however you won't get points for placing all your tiles at once or get the points of your opponent when you make the last play of the match among others. The dictionary is similar to Scrabble as well.

The last update also connects your play experience with Facebook.

This is fun to play and keeps you mentally on your toes. Plus it will find people to play with for you and it is easy to write back and forth with them. I play with people all over the U.S. plus several other countries.

The customers were heard and the Wordsmith version on Amazon has been updated from version 1.1.2 to version 1.1.3. This updated version requires much less (and reasonable) permissions. The version free today (only) on Amazon is the same version as the paid version on the Android Market.
