Heads up: Matching With Friends [$2.99, Free] is now out and available, for real, as both a free app and as a paid app. Announced at publisher Zynga's Unleashed event in San Francisco this afternoon, it's a matching game that reminds us a lot of Words With Friends sans words.

No, seriously -- in Matching With Friends, you match colors asynchronously with other users by putting down colorful jelly tiles on the game's digital board. Higher scores generally depend on the raw amount of colors you can match, but boards also have Words With Friends-style multiplier tiles. Interestingly, special and limited use items are also a part of this package. Screens below:

      How is this just like words with friends? It's just a new game with the "with Friends" label.
