Following the launch of the new iPad, Draw Something has since been treated to over 30 million downloads in its first five weeks, purchased by none other than Zynga, and updated with some much-requested features. Oddly, though, it hasn't gained support for the new iPad's Retina display. That is, until now. If you (a) own a new iPad and (b) share my near-slavish addiction to OMGPOP's flagship game, you will no doubt be pleased to know that it has just been updated with Retina support for the new iPad. About time, right? In the first place, as it's heavily invested in graphics, Draw Something should've been among the first apps to comply with the new device's high resolution. So, this latest development, although long overdue, is more than welcome. Along with the Retina iPad graphics boost, a more convenient password recovery method is also included in the update. When logging in to the game with your Draw Something account, a "Forgot Password?" link is now readily available. This is no doubt a much better system than the previous setup, wherein you have to go through at least a couple of other prompts just to arrive at the password recovery link. Of course, the update is also loaded with bug fixes. Oh, and speaking of "load," Draw Something has a new loading screen, one that already includes the Zynga label. Designed for both iPhone and iPad, Draw Something is available in the App Store as a free, ad-supported app and as a $1.99, ad-free one. Are you raring to see your
botched attempts at drawing brands, celebrities, and whatnot rendered in glorious Retina display on your new iPad?
