Let’s Draw Something on Windows 8

The latest Draw Something update is one of the biggest changes we’ve seen yet with the popular mobile app, which allows you to draw something that another user has to try and guess, and brought with it a simplified UI that has met mixed reactions among users. The application has become so popular that musicians, celebrities, and even politicians have posted their drawings online since its launch.

Now it looks like Windows 8 will also get the popular Draw Something app once it releases this Autumn, and is reported to be a time exclusive deal for the Nokia Lumia phones, which should last around 2 months. Zynga has also worked out a deal for Words with Friends that will appear on Windows 8 as well this Autumn, and these two apps alone will allow users to enjoy Scrabble with Facebook friends and also a game that is very similar to Pictionary.

The deal is a no brainer for Zynga as they will reach even more consumers with an army of Windows phones planned over the coming year, and these two key games should be welcomed by those people planning on buying a Windows Phone or Nokia Lumia. At the time of writing the Windows Phone market place has over 100,000 apps and is growing daily. Do you think Draw Something could attract phone buyers to a Windows Phone, or will it take much more than a couple of apps?

Are you planning on buying a Windows Phone over the next 12 months?
