Draw Something passes 50 million downloads, earns the title of becoming the fastest-growing original mobile game of all time

Draw Something popularity is nearly unstoppable, passes 50 million downloads in just 50 days

Pictionary-style drawing game, Draw Something, has surpassed 50 million downloads in just 50 days. This gives it the title of becoming the fastest-growing original mobile game of all time. Draw Something has also regained its top spot as the No. 1 paid app in the App Store, grabbing the title back from Angry Birds Space.




More than 6 billion drawings have been created, with around three drawings per second created on the day the game launched. You thought that was impressive? That number is now at 3,000 drawings per second. The five most popular words in the game are starfish, pregnant, hangman, six pack and boom box. The least popular word is latrine.


Zynga did well acquiring the makers of Draw Something, OMGPOP, for nearly $200 million a few weeks ago. Draw Something is either going to constantly expand and turn into the 'next' Angry Birds, or its going to hit a brick wall. There are various issues with the game that people talk about, and the words are quite limited, I've personally received the same words 5 or 6 times now.
