Smart Words FREE iPhone App Review

image

 

At first I thought Smart Words was just another scrabble clone but after reading through the scoring instructions and playing a couple games I realized it’s actually quite a bit different and has a lot of fun improvements.  The scoring seemed a lot more complex at first because you get a multiplayer bonus for each syllable your word has.  In addition, unlike scrabble, you can use proper nouns and you have nine tiles in your tray so you can often make much longer and more complex words.  To allow this, the game board is also quite a bit bigger.

What I played - Gun Bros on HP webOS!

image

This will definitely be a different kind of "What I played this week" post. The HP TouchPad tablet might be remembered--if remembered at all--in the annals of gadget ignominy. Just another iPad contender that hardly made it to the ring, before HP decided to pull the plug. I won't be the first or last to say that it's a shame. The product has some rough edges to be sure, but serious potential as well. I played several decent apps on it this week that I felt deserved (along with the device itself) at least a minor review (2 recommendations mentioned here--free Gun Bros and Appy Geek have iOS equivalent in the App store). Though it isn't strictly iPhoneLife material, this review might interest the gadget nut curious how the TouchPad stacks up to our beloved iPad. Actually pretty well...
