Ad-free version of Words with Friends and Draw Something now in Windows Phone Marketplace
At the end of last month, we let you know that Draw Something was available as an ad-supported freebie in the Windows Phone Marketplace, as a Nokia exclusive. Eventually the game was pulled, to the chagrin of many fans. But there is good news this morning as both Draw Something and Words with Friends have been made available to those with a Windows Phone 7 or Windows Phone 8 handset. It is going to cost you $2.99 for each title, but that cost is more than made up for by the lack of ads that invade your screen after every turn with the free version of the games.

The Pictionary inspired Draw Something is not as popular as it was earlier in the year when the money was rolling in so fast, Zynga decided to purchase the game's developer for $180 million. We've already chronicled what has happened to Zynga since the purchase, and the steps it is taking to right itself. Words with Friends is a Scrabble-like game and the beauty of both is that you can find random opponents across mobile platforms and play at your own pace.

Draw Something and Words with Friends are both now available at the Windows Phone Marketplace for $2.99 each. When you have time to kill and you have nothing to kill it with, you will be happy to have these two titles loaded on your Windows Phone 7 or Windows Phone 8 model. If you're looking to buy the games, click on the appropriate sourcelink below.
