Well, it looks like Hasbro has finally noticed Scrabulous. For those who don't already play Scrabulous, it is a wonderful Facebook App that allows you to play Scrabble against your friends. Very well designed and easy to use -- an excellent example of building an app well. If Hasbro is smart, they'll just buy Scrabulous. After all, it has an audience of players, is already written, and will only get more use if it actually is Scrabble. What is more likely to happen is that Hasbro will engage in a protracted legal battle, Scrabulous will be forced to shut down, and Hasbro will replace it with a horribly broken "official" Scrabble app that won't be nearly as well built or easy to use. That will be a shame for the 2.5 million current players.
