The popular Words With Friends applications for both iPhone ($2.99) and iPad ($2.99) have recently received updates. Now, fans of the Scrabble-like social game can enjoy utilizing a tile plate, which shows how many tiles of each letter are left, and a “word-o-meter” that tells you how strong your word is, compared with other words you could potentially create using your tiles.

As outlined in the apps’ release notes, changes made in the latest versions (both 4.10) of Words With Friends include:

  • Tile Pile shows you how many of each letter is left!
  • Word-O-Meter tells you how strong your word is relative to all words your rack can create!

The free versions of both apps also received these updates.

If you have a terrible Words With Friends addiction, download the updates to both apps now and be sure to share your thoughts in the comments.

Words With Friends (for iPhone and iPod touch) and Words With Friends HD (for iPad) can both be downloaded in the App Store for $2.99 each.
