Draw Something iOS update finally adds chat and sharing

By Updated on

Draw Something is becoming one of the dominant apps on mobile devices and if you haven’t tried it yet, you don’t know what you’re missing. The developers of the popular drawing app have just released an update for the iOS version of the app, finally bringing support for sharing and saving those brilliant, or awful pictures.

Prior to the update, the app didn’t have an official way of saving pictures and annoyingly, the picture would disappear within a second before you had the chance to admire it. Now, with version 1.5.14, you can save your picture after drawing it, and also share it to your Facebook or Twitter space if it is deemed worthy of sharing.

Another nice little addition that we have spotted is that you can now leave a comment on pictures drawn by your opponent. You’ll have to be quick though as the option disappears after a second before automatically switching to the next round. It’s clear that these changes are designed to enhance the social communication amongst users when using the app and according to an article on The Guardian, more changes could be on the way.

For example, we’re hearing that the developers may include some tasks for players to complete when they reach a certain level. For example at say level 25, you only have a certain time limit to guess the drawing, or at a higher level there would be extra barriers in place which make it more difficult to pass.

I’ve just tried out the new update and I’m a little miffed that I’ve just lost my Ice Cream colors after logging in to Facebook with the app to see the changes. So there’s a little warning for those of you that are playing without Facebook – logging in will erase all of your current data with friends, including any colors that you have earned. At least you get five new bombs though, so that’s not all bad.

How do you like the new update on iOS folks? Are you completely addicted to Draw Something at the moment?
