App description: Word Ace combines a classic word game and Texas Hold 'Em into an online multiplayer game you can carry in your pocket! Compete against thousands of players online to spell the highest-scoring words, and see how many chips you can win!

"Similar to Quiddler, (Word Ace) boils Scrabble's bones for stock - but adds Texas Hold 'Em instead of Rummy, replacing the lid and going to "low" for a long simmer."
- Tycho, Penny Arcade

5/5 - "Word Ace is a great game that can easily eat away hours of your free time if you're not careful. The unique hybrid brings out the best in both Texas Hold Em poker and word games and is just plain fun."
- The Current Gamer

99/100 - "Texas Hold Em + Scrabble = W-I-N: It really is that simple, and its insanely addictive."
- panappticon.com

Features:
- Online Multiplayer: Play online against real people via your 3G, EDGE, or Wi-Fi connection

- Play With Your Friends: Word Ace makes it easy to play with your friends. Accept an invite with a single click to join a friend's game, or send them an invite to join yours.

- Fast Fun: Want a quick fix? Jump into an online game in a heartbeat. A single hand of Word Ace only takes a few minutes to play!

- Lasting Challenge: You won't want to play only one hand! Kill a few minutes, or spend a whole evening with Word Ace. It's a different challenge every time you play!

- Two Ways to Communicate: Text chat and a unique picture based "emote" system let you communicate with friends and trash-talk your opponents

- Dozens of Awards: Build up your collections of hilarious Awards, and show 'em off to your friends online.

I really like word ace and play it alot but the pro version seems like a last ditched effort to get money from a game they didn't think would be so popular, still the dev should be supported as it is a really great game
