    Who makes Words with Friends?

    It's apparently made by Zynga (the same company that makes Zynga Poker).

    I get a notification in the notification bar when the other player has played a word.

    They have to be making a boatload with an ad after every turn. This makes me wonder about ever seeing a paid version.

    Nice try, but just the fact that it isn't cross-platform compatible and has about 1% the community that Words With Friends has makes your statement dumb.

    I have to say this app runs like complete crap and I wouldn't even label this thing a beta at this point.

    Oh, it kills my battery... I just assumed it was because of the screen usage though.

    Anybody running this with Adfree? It worked for me to begin with but when I updated Adfree to block the ads I get a error basically relating to it not being able to display the ads with the only option being to exit the application. I don't want to remove adfree just for this and I don't see a way to disable adfree so I can play WWF and they don't have a paid version I can buy. Anybody seen the this?

    I just noticed that it does seem to use a lot of battery. With the update they allow you to set your notification check intervals. I assume this means the notificatiosn arent push?! Maybe this is why is uses so much battery? Checking for moves every 5 minutes?

    I've only got one game going, but I notice that sometimes when I get the notification that its my turn, when I open the app it still says its the other player's turn.

    Sometimes it stay like this for a few minutes, sometimes hours.

    Anybody else experiencing this lag between notification and the app updating to show the other player's word and allow you to play? I could understand if it was just a few minutes for the servers to update, but it has taken 2+ hours about half the time

    Oo didn't notice an update, I set it to 1 hour.. Hopefully that will help

    Edit- I can already see a tremendous battery improvement, thanks again for the heads up on that update
