Draw Something hits 50 million downloads in just 50 days to set new record
The Angry Birds might be a little angrier after being surpassed as the number one paid app in Apple's App Store by Draw Something. In addition, the latter game has set a new record by drawing 50 million downloads (pun intended) in just 50 days. It is just this type of performance that led Zynga to pay $180 million (not including $30 million in employee retention payments) for the game's creator OMGPOP.

Other statistics show how much momentum Draw Something has. As we recently told you, stats from AppData show that last month the mobile game went from 1.7 million daily users to 14.6 million daily players. That amazing growth added to Zynga's current user base gave the public company a quick 25% boost in the number of daily users to its games.

Since the launch of the Pictionary-inspired Draw Something, users have created 6 billion drawings at a rate of 3,000 per second. When the game first was released, layers were creating drawings at a rate of just 3 per second. According to its new Poppa Zynga, the most popular words used on Draw Something are starfish, pregnant, hangman, six pack, and boom box. The least popular word is latrine.

A few months ago, no one could conceive of a game becoming more popular than Angry Birds. After all, the Birds are going to have their own animated show on television. But Draw Something is the number one paid app in 80 countries and the word is just starting to spread about the game.
