Default Cant get Words with Friends

I cannot find WwF on the Market. I apparently need some step by step instructions for getting this game onto my HTC HERO. Anyone want to help?

Nope.....

I can't even find it in the Market Place on my phone.

I can find it online using my laptop, but when I try to download it that way, it says there is no mobile phone associated with the account.

CRAZY!! I have downloaded apps in the past. I have searched on google for an answer, but none help.

Mine goes like this:

Market -> games -> brain & puzzle -> free items only -> by date

The first game to show up is Devil Breaking.

When I Search for "Words with friends" the first free game that that comes up is:
AppBrain App Market

The Zynga site doesn't seem to have it, which is weird. All they offer is MySpace, Facebook, iPhone and Yahoo games.

Of the Puzzle Games, they only mention PathWords and Word Twist.

Or install it from the Market website (pushes the app to your phone).

If I type in just "words" in the Search on the Market(on the phone!) it instantly comes up with "words with friends".
Make sure you are at The Market from the Market icon on the phone and not searching thru a browser from the phone.

Maybe it isn't available for your phone. You know anyone else with your model phone that has installed it? Sometimes apps aren't available for all phones.

According to the market link (https://market.android.com/details?id=com.zynga.words) under permissions it says it requires Android 1.6 and up. So the Hero should be able to run it.

EDIT: Found this on NewToyInc's website (the original developer, before Zynga bought them): http://newtoyinc.com/wp/category/blog/

Is your screen size optimal enough for it?

I was having trouble finding it as well, but it turned out it was just further down on the list than I would have anticipated due to the seemingly large amount of popularity surrounding this game. Needless to say, I found it, but I have a new question. I want to purchase the thing so I don't have to deal with Ads between every word play. I know you can purchase on iPhones/pods/pads but there doesn't seem to be an option on my Android. Anybody else have the same issue (assuming there's someone who actually wants to spend money on it)? Thanks.

Why all these and other issues with android? This stuff irks the hell outta me, some can find and download from the market, others can download but it doesn't work because of phone hardware, software, country they live in etc etc...when if ever will any of this be fixed? Most here hate Apple, but I miss Apple where everything just works. Im tired of apps ported from Apple that are buggy, Force close or lack UI interface the Apple version has or even lacking features. This fragmentation issue, to me, is far more important than most people with android let on. I have waited for wwf for awhile to come to android, I have a new samsung galaxy s, and was very dispointed in the game port to android, very buggy, it works for some and not others , and a lot cannot even find it to download, what is up with that? why are these apps not as good as the ones for Apple? smooth scrolling is non existant on android, notyhing like the iphone ipod or ipad, cant google ge this right? android is not new anymore, it needs to mature and grow up fast or it will llose me. and many others too from what i see. anyone see any hope of android matureing faster?

Ok, so I have to update to 2.1 if I want the WwF. Waaaaa. I tried updating long ago and was unable to sync with my computer. (Win7) I uninstalled and reinstalled HTC Sync several times, but I couldn't get it to work.

Oh well.

Thanks for all your help, though!

Hi everyone,
I've also been having trouble finding Words With Friends. I read this page and tried to update my phone but can't do it! I know it can't be that hard but for some reason I just can't figure it out. Is there an easy way to update that I don't know about?? Thanks!!

I've got a Samsung Captivate. The thing that bothers me about the ads is simply their frequency. I suppose it helps that I know, for a fact, that every time I play a word I'll have to skip an ad, but I'm a product of the technology age. I shouldn't have to wait for anything. (he says sarcastically)

Really diggin' this game though. I've noticed some lag in the game where there won't be a word played by an opponent, and then all of the sudden 4 will show up from hours ago, but it's not really a big deal with the way the game is set up anyway.

I have a SE Xperia x10 mini pro and am running android 2.1, however i still am not able to find words with friends in the android market using the icon from my phone (instead of using the browser).

Anyone facing this problem?
