WordFeud has long been Android users’ favorite Scrabble clone, but those wishing for the iOS-born Words With Friends of similar origins will be happy to know that the developers – New Toy Inc. – have added a team of Android coders who are currently working to port the title.

“We’ve since hired a team to develop an Android version. They’re actively at work on it at the moment and are getting close to being done, so not too much longer!”

That was the response our tipster – Jordan – was met with when he followed up to a question he’d asked earlier in the year when the developers were still exploring the possibilities of bringing their app to the market. While WordFeud is a fine game to fill that multiplayer Scrabble gap, Words With Friends will pull folks in by name alone and hopefully they’ll find a way to implement cross-platform multiplayer so we can finally play against all of our iOS friends who won’t shut up about it. [Thanks, Jordan!]
