Hello - I had a 1st generation keyboard Kindle and just switched to a Touch. However, I am very disappointed that Scrabble is not available on the Touch, nor is it available on my new android smartphone, although I did have a version on my previous non-smartphone cell. Is the delay in development for these platforms from Electronic Arts, Hasbro or from somewhere else? I'm not interested in Words with Friends, I want the traditional Scrabble. Thanks, in advance, for any updates!

I googled "Scrabble for android" and came up with a lot of options. Would one work on your smartphone?

You need to contact Electronic Arts, the maker of the game.

There is not yet the traditional Scrabble game available for purchase. What comes up on the Apps store are variations or versions for playing with others (unless I'm misunderstanding something). The version also has way too many crash reports, which I suspect could be related to having to play with others rather than playing against AI. I'll check it out more closely, though. Thanks for responding!

I agree that it's very strange that Scrabble isn't available on the Touch. I have it on my Kindle Fire, but I miss having it on the Touch, as I take that with me everywhere. Perhaps they only made the game available for the Fire. It would be nice to have for the Touch.

There *is* a Scrabble game (the "active content" type) available for the e-ink Kindles, but the developers (Electronic Arts) don't yet seem to have updated it to work on the Kindle Touch (since it needs the 5-way controller to move the cursor). I would think that if enough Kindle Touch owners want to play Scrabble on their Touch and write to the developer, you might see a version that works on the Kindle Touch.
