Zynga’s hit titles Draw Something and Words With Friends are now available for Windows Phone. Microsoft promised the titles several months ago and both are free for owners of Nokia’s Lumia-branded Windows Phone handsets for the next two months.
Unfortunately, early downloaders are already calling for an update to fix a crashing bug in Words With Friends, which appears to happen on the Lumia 710. “It crashes as soon as I open it,” one user said in a review. “Need an update ASAP it crashes,” another said. Others have complained about slow load times, bugs and the lack of notifications and integration with the home screen or Games Hub.
We haven’t installed it on our own device yet, but you may want to read the reviews before purchasing it. If you’re a Lumia owner, let us know if more powerful devices, such as the Lumia 920 or Lumia 820, are capable of running the games without issue.
The titles work on both Windows Phone 8 and Windows Phone 7.5 devices.
