[Price: Free with in-app purchases]
Aworded is an excellent Scrabble alternative that has been around for many years. The rules and mechanics work virtually the same way as the traditional board game and that includes the point bonus for using all of your tiles at once. It comes with support for 16 languages, online multiplayer, unlimited games, and even a chat so you can talk to your opponents while you play them. It’s a solid overall experience that’s worth looking at, especially if you want to play with friends online.

Hasbro partnered with EA to bring the actual Scrabble game to mobile. It’s free to play but has advertising that some have found to be intrusive. It is the classic Scrabble experience from the people who actually made the game which is about as authentic as you can ask for. You can play online against Facebook friends or random people and there is a solo mode if you want to play by yourself. It’s a little buggy, but it gets the job done.
[Price: Free / $2.99]
Wordfeud is another ancient mobile game that’s been updated and improved for years. It operates on the classic “free and paid” paradigm so there are no in-app purchases to deal with here. It’s not quite a clone of Scrabble and introduces some different mechanics to change things up a bit. For instance, you’ll be able to randomize the board which changes where the various score tiles are placed. You can play up to 30 simultaneous games online against opponents and it’s available in nine different languages. It’s definitely good.
[Price: Free / $2.49, both with in-app purchases]
Wordsmith has been around for a long time and represents one of the more simple Scrabble alternatives available on the market. It supports two to four player multiplayer which is awesome considering that most of us played Scrabble with more than one additional person. You can play up to eight games simultaneously, play against friends or random people, and you can even have timers so that games don’t last too long (and helps prevent cheating). Like Wordfeud, this one uses the old “free or paid” method, but also uses in-app purchases.
Zynga blew the hinges off of the Scrabble alternative selection when they initially released Words With Friends. It’s easy to use, highly accessible, and has millions of players all around the world. You can play against people you know or against strangers. There are multiple game modes, including the classic modes along with a speed mode. You can also remove ads by making any single in-app purchase. It’s not perfect and people have found plenty of things to not like about the game, but it’s still a good alternative.
