Draw Something

Get this: this app was only launched 5 weeks ago and it already has 20 million downloads! That makes it one of the fastest growing mobile apps of all time. It's currently the number one app in 79 countries.

Draw Something by OMGPOP is essentially a modern version of pictionary. Each player takes turns drawing a word and their partner needs to guess it. The harder the word the more points you get if you manage to draw it so that your partner can guess what your word was.

One of the greatest parts of Draw Something is that it's a turn based game, meaning you can play with a partner but you both don't have to be online at the same time. So you can draw something and challenge your friend, and when they have time they can guess your word. When they do it's their turn to draw a word for you to guess, and vice versa. Plus you can simultaneously participate in several games with several different partners so that whenever you open the app you'll have something to do there.

You can also challenge your friends on Facebook or Twitter, or be automatically partnered with new random gaming buddies.

As you can tell by its success, this game is really addicting, especially once you start playing multiple games at the same time.

There's even a site dedicated to stuff that people drew on Draw Something. Pretty amazing what some people can draw with just their finger.

Draw Something is available for iPhone/iPod Touch/iPad and there is also a version for Android. It's $0.99 for a limited time and then will go up to $1.99.
