Draw Something
Art skills not required

If not cleverly named, the app is a fun game for players of all levels of artistic ability. A sort of Pictionary for your smartphone, Highlight lets users draw one of three words of varying difficulty for another player to guess. The harder a word is to visualize, the more in-game coins it’s worth — meaning “yield” is worth more to your score than, say, “barn.” Players alternate turns. You can set up random matches with strangers or find friends by user name or Facebook account. Free with advertisements or 99 cents for iOS and Android devices.
