My latest iPhone app addiction at the moment is the social drawing game Draw Something. When I have a spare 5 mins I have a quick blast against numerous friends and family no matter where they are in the world. If you’ve never played Draw Something then it’s like having a mini game of Pictionary where you can draw on your mobile touchscreen devices and the other person has to guess the word from your drawings. It’s seriously addictive. The person drawing is provided three random words, arbitrarily ranked by difficulty (a star is easier to draw than a lion), earning one to three coins if his partner guesses correctly. The games allows you to compete with your friends on Facebook, Twitter or email and also compete against random people if you choose. The game which was only released in December 2011 by OMG Pop is one of the most popular apps on the market and is available for iOS and Android devices. In the first 50 days of its release it was downloaded more than 50 million times and won the Flurry App Spotlight Awards in 2012.
It’s not easy drawing on such a small screen but take a look at these rather excellent pictures below by some talented and patient people.
