    Why did this come out in the middle of Mobile World Congress, one of the busiest conferences of the year? How will I get any work done? I digress. Words With Friends from Zynga (the makers of several highly popular Facebook games including Farmville) is now available for Android. It is a Scrabble clone that [...]

    Yes! I have been waiting for this one for awhile.
    Only problem is that - compared to Wordfued it eats up soooo much battery life.
    Also I can't get the notifications to work like how Wordfued does.

    I play WWF all day and it was 3% of my battery usage, I still had 30% of my battery after 17 hours of use on my HTC Desire HD.

    I have a DX and don't see to have any extra drain. Sure, if you are playing the game, you'll use a lot of battery just from having the screen on so much. But, just having the games in progress, but the phone sleeping, no, that doesn't appear to be affecting me much, if any.

    Well, sure the CPU use of the game isn't very much, but playing the game obviously has a much greater effect on the battery than 3%, but that's all reflected in display usage stats.
