The acquisition is perfect timing for Zynga now that the spotlight is on OMGPOP, which announced on March 20 that Draw Something is the No. 1 Top Paid iPhone App, No. 1 Top Free iPhone App, the No. 1 Top Free iPad app in the games category, and the No. 1 Top Free App on Google Play (formerly "the Android Market"). The game is also a Top 5 app in over 80 countries. It's an extremely impressive feat, and it's even more impressive when you consider that the app is only five weeks old."
Programmers used to batch environments may find it hard to live without
giant listings; we would find it hard to use them.
