Words with Friends

Words with Friends is a leading social mobile game challenging players to create the highest-scoring words while playing against family and friends. Players can be engaged in up to 20 games at once and are able to chat with each other in game. In Apple’s App Store for iPhone, Words with Friends has regularly been the leading game in the word category since 2010 until Hanging with Friends became the leading game in June 2011. Words with Friends was acquired through our purchase of Newtoy, Inc. By leveraging our scale, technology infrastructure and deep knowledge of social game mechanics, we were able to double the DAUs for Words with Friends within approximately 120 days after the acquisition.
