Words With Friends HD [$2.99] is, like, totally HD now. The game's latest update, which went live just the other afternoon, has added support for the new iPad's display. Version 5.0 also sees the addition of a new sidebar interface element that hooks you up with links to other Zynga games and lets you pester your friends via social media.

Of course, this update also includes nebulous "bug fixes and optimizations." Words With Friends [99¢] on iPhone and iPod Touch has also been updated with these, and as you may have just noticed, it's also just 99¢ instead of its usual $2.99.

It's hard to believe there's a person out there who hasn't jumped into Words With Friends yet, BUT if you're that dude or dudette, consider giving it a go. It's an awesome Scrabble-like game that feels (and now looks) great on touch devices.

    I’ll put in a good word for Scrabble instead of the clone (not the iPad version so much as the iPhone version). It’s quite good, with asynchronous turn-taking and push notifications as you’d expect. But it also has computer opponents.

    (The iPad version still lacks some of the needed updates that the iPhone version has gotten. It has an awkward means of choosing a wildcard for instance, and is not multiplayer-compatible with the iPhone version. I like it OK for single-player, but the iPhone version is superior.)

    The only good thing Zynga has ever done.

    Ugh social media garbage cluttering up the screen.
