OMGPOP’s Draw Something drawing game just surpassed 50 million downloads. It has been downloaded around a million times a day since launch. The paid version is currently number one in the App Store.
The company also noted that over 6 billion drawings have been passed between friends. According to the PR, the least popular word to draw is “latrine,” which is understandable.
Zygna recently bought OMGPOP for a cool $210 million and most of the team – except for one employee who was unceremoniously insulted by the CEO on Twitter – are now working in the bowels of FarmVille-land.
As a point of comparison, Angry Birds Space was downloaded 10 million times in three days, a strong showing for another popular casual game.
