Two Nexus 7 Android tablets play 3201 games of Words With Friends over 8 months. Uses monkeyrunner testing framework to screenshot and control tablets. Performs simple OCR by comparing screenshot tiles against known bitmaps. Errors are fixed by validating against dictionary. Tries each of 168881 words in dictionary in every location on board. No future looking strategy is involved. Written in Python and C. Originally written entirely in Python, until it was discovered that the Python version was 4000 times slower than same algorithm in C. Fitting algorithm is multi-threaded since this is a classic application of parallel computing. http://nishioka.com
