IOS App Draw Something, hits 30 Million downloads just five weeks after its release

Just five weeks after its release in public, is now the most downloaded App. It has gained over 30 million downloads by both the and users. This app is a drawing social similar to the family , Pictionary.

CEO and Draw Something game designer Dan Porter says in an interview:

“We thought if we’re not going to be as successful as , let’s do some out-there (stuff). If people don’t like it, at least we can say we didn’t do a bad job of copying other people’s games.”

“We want to make games for people that don’t put games on their phone.”

Draw Something has overtaked Zynga’s Words with Friends’ more than 8 million, downloads. The app has also “generated about 2 billion drawings and is still being played daily by more than half of its users, who are exchanging pictures at a rate of 2,000 to 3,000 per second.”

Draw Something is Porter’s first game design and also claims that he has never played Pictionary. so his app was not patterned after that game.

When asked about his future plans, Porter says: “I’m in Zen mode, we’ll take it as it comes.”

    Clever. I’d rather prefer Draw Something than Words With Friends.
