Draw Something update lets you comment, share, undo, save, and more!

Draw Something, the super-popular iPhone, iPod touch, and iPad app that lets players take turns guessing each others -- often comically bad -- pictures has been updated with a crayon box full of new features.

First off, you can now "say something" by commenting on drawings. That's right -- no more need to sarcastically scrawl your trash talk by hand before getting on with your own drawing.

You can also "share something" by posting your drawings directly to Facebook or Twitter. Buh Buy manual screen shots and uploading! (Not that we were trying to get our friends and followers to help us guess, of course...)

"Save something" lets you keep copies of your favorite drawings, or all your drawings, for posterity. Again, without the need for a manual screenshot.

The eraser will finally get a rest with "undo something" so you can make your last line nothing more than a memory.

And "refresh something" lets you use the popular pull-down technique to make sure you have the latest turns ready and waiting for you.

There don't appear to any major changes to the core interface, which could certainly use them from a design-perspective (though that's never come in the way of their success). The now Zynga-owned property promises more updates in the future, however, so we'll keep that hope alive.

Both the paid, $0.99 and the free version of Draw Something have been updated.

Have you tried out the new Draw Something yet? If so, let us know how you like the new features and make sure you jump into the iMore Forums so you can swap usernames and get your drawing on against other members of the iMore nation!

I totally feel your pain. The wife and I have been stuck on 99 since the day after the app was launched...

The new comment system in draw something is a little janky as the message clumsily pops up over the game title above the user avator. It's not like you get to see a running chat. It's there and then gone. And you don't get credit for surpassing the 99 round mark prior to the update.

I agree. It's because it's not a native iOS app. It's basically HTML5 with a wrapper for each platform it runs on. That's nice because you get a consistent look and feel across platforms, but fails miserably when trying to integrate native features to each specific OS.

Mine tries to go to 100 after each turn, but then by the next move its back to 99. the comment on something function is lacking, it should be a chat like words with friends. undo is helpful.

It wasn't noted, but I think a lot of the between-turns animations have been significantly increased in speed, too.

Any update is a good thing, because many people are loosing interest in the game after a month of playing it.
