Early last week Words With Friends out of the blue disappeared from the Market for Honeycomb tablets, but right before that they had pushed an update. Many users myself included could not get the game to work and it would instantly force close after that. Zynga claimed to have no idea why it was no longer in the market, we aren’t sure if that is true or not but the game is now back today.
Today Words With Friends appeared in my list on my Motorola Xoom and had an update available. After updating it still would instantly close like before but at least it was showing up in the Android Market when I search from my tablet. I uninstalled and re-installed the game and now all is working great. Words With Friends looks great on my Xoom and the panel view sure is nice.
We aren’t sure what the deal was, nor why it was pulled in the first place although it was pretty glitchy and had a few problems. From the looks of things you can now download Words With Friends again for your Honeycomb tablet and enjoy the amazingly addicting game. It is showing compatible with all my devices now, and previously all the Honeycomb tablets were greyed out. Things look to be much more stable but the refresh times still need a little work. Now lets just hope people don’t keep cheating with all those apps in the market.[via Android Market]
