Android word games for Scrabble nerds?

What Android word games use the Scrabble Official Tournament Word List (TWL / OWL)?

There are lots of word games available for my Droid Incredible. I don't need help finding any extra ones. But I do need help finding out which games out there use the official Scrabble word list - as a Scrabble enthusiast I can't really afford to learn/unlearn words based on a dictionary other than the official TWL06 list.

I'm currently playing a decent amount of WordUp, but wading through the sea of word games out there trying to game them enough to figure out whether or not they use the Scrabble word list is a giant pain in the ass.

Doubleplus bonus points if you can tell me how to get EA's Scrabble app on my Incredible - I've seen lots of links claiming this exists, but on their website they say there's nothing available for my phone. I'd be happy to pay for it if they would just let me.

I asked my husband, the competitive Scrabble player, and he says that this question has been asked on the Scrabble list he belongs to, but not gotten an answer. Likewise, he has no clue. Cross Tables has forums, and it might be worth asking there.

I don't have a direct answer for you, but a suggestion: try emailing the developer of AlphaMixr, he's pretty responsive and could either tell you where he gets his word list or possibly even make an TWL06 version.
