Stuck in Draw Something? Try Drawsome Words

Unless you’ve been living under a rock recently, you’ve heard of the game Draw Something. For those of you who haven’t had the chance of playing with OMGPOP‘s creation, it is a social drawing app where one player draws while the other guesses. Basically, it’s Scrabble on steroids. Sound like fun? I’m sure it does, as it’s currently the #1 paid and #1 free app in the Android Market Google Play.

Want to know what isn’t fun? Getting stumped by a difficult word. I’m not going to name names *cough*everyone I’ve ever played with who can’t draw to save their lives*cough*, but I often find myself facing an impossible challenge, reluctant to hit the pass button. However, thanks to XDA Forum Member Phantom Pt. II, this no longer has to be the case. After all, why should you be punished for having bad drawing partners.

Coming in as both a helper website and mobile application, Drawsome Word helps users figure out the elusive word by providing a list of all possible choices. Additionally, the website itself even has solver capabilities, which will find their way into the mobile application at some point in the future.

In the words of the developer:

Are you playing Draw Something with someone that can’t draw? You just can’t guess what it’s supposed to be? Drawsome Words helps you out!
Drawsome Words collects the words that are used in the game and lists them up for you.

But that’s not all! Drawsome Words makes sure no word is unknown to you. If there’s a word in Draw Something of which you don’t know what it means, simply visit DrawsomeWords.com and click on the availabe words to get a description and image!

We also offer you a Solver, where you select the amount of letters the word you need to guess is and enter the letters you have. We’ll give you suggestions of what the word to guess might be! We’re working on getting the Solver in the Android App!

Itching to get started? If so, head over to the application thread. After all, it’s not cheating if your partner doesn’t find out… and you’re in a different area code.

PSA: You Can Optimize Your Note 4’s Recents Menu & RAM

The Note 4 never had the fastest Recents Menu, and despite its 3GB of RAM, its app-holding capabilities only got worse on Lollipop. The infamous RAM bug that plagued the S6 is indeed an annoyance on the Note 4's 5.0.X ROMs. Rumors of an update to fix all of this were confirmed with the first reports of the 5.1.1 update for the Russian Note 4, which seemingly improved the Recents Menu and RAM management. But it'll be a long time...
