Sprint App of the Week – Word Games


We asked in last week’s Sprint App of the Week about everybody’s favorite types of apps and one thing sure is clear. Words With Friends certainly has a lot of friends.

Really, it seems, smartphone users love all kinds of word games. In addition to the very popular Words with Friends, many others mentioned their favorites, including Hanging With Friends, Scrabble, ‘7 little words and Syrious Scramble Full.

You always have your phone with you so why be bored when you are standing in some line for a while? Need a brief break? Reward yourself with a quick game.

So if you have yet to tease your brain with one of these word game apps, give one - or all of them - a try and let us know what you think. If your favorite word game app is missing from this list, please give it a shout out in the comments.

Thank you to everybody who shared last week about their favorite apps and their must-have types of apps. We’ll be drawing from those suggestions as we select themes for future installments of Sprint App of the Week.
