Newtoy, Inc.’s popular Words with Friends game for the iPad is now available in a free ad-supported version. The Scrabble-like game first came to the iPhone in the summer of 2009 and has met with great success as a regular in the Top 200 Paid and Free iPhone Games categories. The paid iPad version was released in April, hitting the App Store right as the trendy tablet became available in the U.S.
The new app offers the same features as the paid version though it has a slightly different layout to make room for ads. We remain addicted to Words with Friends as we admitted in our review of the paid iPad version and we’re excited to see the possibility for the game to appeal to an even wider audience with the release of this free version.
