Omgpop Dethrones Facebook Developer Zynga On Mobile

Draw Something from Omgpop zoomed past Zynga‘s Words with Friends to take the top spot in mobile gaming applications.

Draw Something only has a fan page on Facebook and cannot actually be played on the social network.

According to AppData, Draw Something gained the most daily average users for the week among mobile applications, adding 5.8 million and seeing the total soar 118 percent, to 10.8 million.

Words with Friends ended the week with 8.6 million daily average users.

New York-based Omgpop may have finally found the hit Facebook game it has been looking for in Draw Something, which is based on its Draw My Thing Pictionary-style game.
