    The WordCube Android application is available in both free and paid versions. The main difference between the WordCube free version and the WordCube Pro (paid version) is that WordCube Pro doesn't display any ads. If you don't mind seeing ads while playing WordCube, it is better to go for the free version.

    WordCube The aim of the game is to make as many words (each word should contain at least four letters) using the letter in the center of the 3x3 grid and one (or more, depending on the combination of the letters that you get) that has all the 9 letters. This game is a version of the word puzzles that are offered in various dailies across the world under different names.

    What's great about WordCube is that it lets you post your scores on Twitter! If you have friends playing WordCube, you can post your scores on Twitter and boast about how good you are when it comes to word puzzles.

    User Interface and Design

    WordCube2 The user interface of this game is very simple. It has a 3x3 grid that shows you the letters and you have to use them to play the game. Below the grid is a text box that lets you add the words. Right beside the text box are two buttons, one that acts as a backspace key and the other that is used to add the words.

    The main menu lets you choose the next and previous cube (or grid of words) and also it has a new grid of words that is updated everyday. There should be enough word grids to choose from that you can keep playing until you are satisfied, but this is best as a daily puzzle so this app has great longevity.
