Never the twain...

I'm on Android (Samsung S4 Zoom) and my partner is on IoS (iPhone 4) - what are the best turn based/collaborative common platform games we can play together on and off during the working day? We both like word play, puzzles, general knowledge and detective mysteries, but would be amenable to considering anything that would get the old grey matter working. Hit us up with your best timewasting suggestions, venerable mefites!

Do you mean games that work cross-platform over the internet? Or games that have a pass-and-play mode so you can play together on the same device?

Response by poster: Cross-platform over the internet, please, i.e. games that are available on both Android and IoS that can talk to each other without compatibility issues. Thanks!

Best answer: I'm fairly certain the very popular Words with Friends (ie, Scrabble) is cross-platform.

Best answer: QuizUp is coming out with an Android version "soon"...the iOS version is great so you might want to put that on your "one to watch" list.

Best answer: WordFeud (Scrabble/Words with Friends with completely randomized bonus tile placement) is fun and cross-platform. I was going to recommend Letter Press, which has versions for both iOS and Android, but it doesn't appear to be capable of cross-platform play.
