iPad Scrabble

Following up on my earlier post on using the iPad for board games, via the Death of Monopoly blog comes a video look at Scrabble for the iPad.  It looks cool from a gee-whiz standpoint, but the gameplay doesn't seem to be vastly improved over playing with wooden tiles.  The only features that look better are maybe the automatic score calculation (which isn't a big deal for me) and the dictionary available on the phone.  Otherwise, I'd rather play with the wooden pieces - the screen looks tiny, and the tiles hard to move around on it.

And that second player should really have played RIVETED with the D making GORED - that was bugging me.
