Is Draw Something getting kind of boring? Cheer up, a new update is available! The immensely popular game has just received an update on both iOS and Android, which brings to the game some new, much-needed features such as social sharing, comments and an undo button.

If you’ve managed to miss it, Draw Something is a smash hit game which resembles Pictionary, in which opponents have to create drawings of words for the other player to guess. The game has become very popular in both the iTunes App Store and Google Play, which brought on the recent acquisition of its developer, OMGPOP, by Zynga.

So what’s new in Draw Something? To start, you can now add comments to your drawings after finishing them and before sending them. You can also add comments to your opponents drawings after guessing. If you were in the habit of taking a screenshot of your masterpiece to share on Facebook on Twitter, that option is now also built in, as well as the option to save your drawing to your photo library.

Another very useful addition is the undo button, which lets you get rid of the last line you drew without the hassle of having to erase it. This only works once, though, so if you need to delete more than one line, you still have to use the eraser. If you want to refresh your game list, you can now pull down the menu, and swiping your finger on a single game will give you an option to delete it.

What do you think of the update? Are you already addicted to Draw Something?

    I downloaded it on my phone, HTC Incredible S and made an account.... Then I went online and it said that that account didnt exist so I just wrote everything like I did the phone account... how do they sync, or do they?

      What exactly do you mean when you say you "went online"? You mean on the OMGPop website? I'm not sure these two are syncable.. I never tried it myself. I think your Draw Something account lets you play the mobile version, not all the games on OMGPop.

      Might be wrong though.. it's worth Googling it, or even asking on MakeUseOf Answers.

    I love this app, but when I updated it, it doesnt let me play it anymore. It only pops up saying error.

      That sucks, which device is it? You should try Googling it to see if it's a known issue. It works fine on my Acer Liquid E running Android 2.1.

      Really? It doesn't work? My phone is 3.5" and it works fine, albeit a bit slow. :) But that's to do with the phone being relatively ancient, I assume.

        Nah, not ancient :P
        Its Galaxy Y, and its 3", but it doesn't make any difference. The thing is it works and all but there are these square blocks that keep
        blocking me, and the phone doesn't really have a stylus.

          I meant mine was ancient. :)

          I've read that Draw Something is not compatible with Galaxy Y for some reason, that might be the problem.

          I'm a Canadian who lives a few miles away from the Downtown Eastside where the clinic is. The amnubalce paramedics don't always arrive in time to revive someone who overdoses people aren't afraid to call for help because cops don't consider personal posession a high priority to investigate. If people use InSite, they prevent disease transmission like HIV and serum hepatitis, but also local infections, and have access to healthcare and treatment upstairs in the same building. The Conservative Prime Minister, Steven Harper, is morally opposed to harm reduction, even many more traditional approaches like needle exchanges. I received a tough on crime post card from him saying jail the dealers, throw the addicts in treatment . There's no way under Canadian law to compel anyone to undergo rehab. In Russia, yes.

    Now if they would just add some more words and give me something else to do with my coins. I don't need any more colors than what I have and I honestly have zero use of the bombs. So I'm stuck with two thousand coins and nothing to do with them. They might as well just create a leaderboard so I can at least get some endorphins off my position in that, because the coins are of zero value and I wish I could donate them.

    But the more words thing is important. I've got one person I've played over 200 rounds with and we have repeated the same drawing at least seven times. C'mon Zynga... Surely you have a larger vocabulary than that? Sync it up to Words With Friends and use their database of words or something. Or sync it to Hanging with Friends and see how that works. I need more freaking words!!

      It is curious that this update doesn't include new words, unless they added some and said nothing about it.

      Seems like Zynga is listening to users so far, so your prayers may be answers soon enough. :)

        I don't like the fact that IOS users get a save option and share to Facebook/Twitter, but Android users get none of that. :-P
