Draw Something creator sold for $180 million

As expected, Zynga has purchased OMGPOP for over $200 million basically to grab the sizzling hot mobile game "Draw Something"; 15 million users are drawn to the game (no pun intended) daily and it is a perfect addition for the company that owns "Words with Friends"...

wow i was actually wondering what Zynga thought about the sucess of Draw Something being so similar to their style. i guess it's needless to say they were impressed. xD

Maybe you skimmed over this "OMGPOP brings in $250,000 a day from the game (after Apple takes its 30% slice) and is available in a free and paid version. The free version generates 1 billion ad impressions a day".

no i read it… i dont not read articles before commenting… but that number is fleeting… in 2 months i doubt that number will be the same… it seems like apps go through popularity rise and falls (ie PvZ, fieldrunners, stickwars, etc.)… barely any sustain popularity.. so i am just thinking they are going more for the creative minds behind the app rather than the initial app.. the app would have to retain its popularity for over a year to be effective

all one has to do is come up with a brilliant app idea get it passed thru apple's app store then it becomes overwhelmingly popular... android then picks it up then BAM!!! millionaire status!
