    Default Word with friends working on playbook 2.0!!!

    Ten Best New Free Android Apps for BlackBerry PlayBook OS 2.0 - International Business Times

    click on the link at the end of the passage where it says "running list" then click on the link for words with friend and download the files. This looks to have already been converted to a .bar file which was a plus, so I use ddpb to install the game and its working like a charm

    Yep. I side loaded it tonight and tried it out as well. Works fine. A bit slow mind you.

    I've just sideloaded with no problems at all. Have a search for ddpb on the forum, download that, and it's all simple. The .bar file cab be found around the forum as well.

    I've had some android player crashes, but no worries other than that.

    Everything works except for changing a blank into the letter you want it to be.

    Sideloading is really easy. Search for "DDPBInstaler".

    Words with Friends looks pretty bad on the PB, not to mention quite laggy at times.

    It works, but it certainly isn't ideal for the PB. It needs to be native or to be modified as an Android app.

    I just sideloaded this but I am stuck at the screen for "Have a Games with Friends account?" I can't seem to get past this part. Any help??


    Edit:
    Nevermind I just closed the app and re-opened it and now it works fine.

    I've had no problems with shifting a blank tile into the letter you want it to be and I've been fiddling around with this on the beta .7111 for about 3 weeks. I agree that it lags some, and will notify at odd times (I had it on my work phone, Android Galaxy S, for a while to test transmissions speed differences of phone vs PB; phone always won even when both were on the same WiFi), but all in all runs pretty well.

    It even will give a '!' in the notification bar for when a new move was made, including what word your opponent played.

    There's a new bar been extracted that I found on this thread that seems to fix the blank tile lag.

    You'll want the 4.7 or later version. 4.5 is laggy as . 4.7 is laggy,too, but much better than 4.5. And the blank tile problem is typically not an issue on it. I've found that it lags/hangs when it tries to update in the middle of a play.

    This maybe a silly question. I got Words for Friends loaded and working. I was playing with the menu bar at the bottom. I slid the little slide switch over and it made that menu bar dissappear. Obvioulsy my question is... how do I get the menu bar back?

    I knew it was going to be something simple. I thought I had tried swiping everywhere.

    You guys are going to have to walk me through this whole side loading thing. We just got our playbook and have not even installed the desktop yet.

    I sideloaded Words With Friends on my PlayBook, but I'm having trouble getting it to start a game with someone in my contacts list. I don't use facebook, but I know that several people in my contacts play this game. Where is it looking for contacts? I thought it would be in the native contacts app, but that's not working for me.

    Only your Facebook contacts, a random opponent, or someone whose WWF ID you already know.

    I'm stuck at this screen also, and re-opening it or even rebooting the PB doesn't change it. I enter my Facebook info, click connect and - nothing.

    Any ideas?
