For me, I have an android phone and tablet but each has a game that I like the best. This is simply a preference of screen sizes.

I am definitely a victim of this along with my daughter! Everywhere I go, I see people on their phones! It’s crazy! My mom tells me I remember when we didn’t have cell phones and I just laugh because I can’t imagine it! I love to play Words with Friends and Hanging with Friends!
