The app gaming company OMGPOP had a lot of failed attempts before getting it right with DRAW SOMETHING. Much like pictionary, the game is an overnight success which can be played on your Iphone, and Android phones. It has been in the top spot for Free and paid charts for weeks, with the free version coming with banner ads.
The Mafia Wars/Texas Hold Em Poker developer Zynga probably felt threatened as they no longer had the number one game, and decided to buy OMGPOP for a whopping $250 Million dollars!
Zynga recently failed in buying Rovio, as the latter chose to sell their Angry Birds driven company to Electronic Arts!
Damn, let’s all make an app! But how to make an app? That’s the big hurdle!
