Dumb Ways to Die 2 is only available on iOS, so make sure that you download the new version for maximum fun.

2.    Draw Something

Draw Something has been something of a commercial success over the last two years. It’s akin to an app version of Pictionary, which is what has made it so popular. Play with friends and challenge them to a drawing content. Whatever the title is, you have to draw it. With movie titles, songs and characters, your inner artist is challenged with this game. Still, it’s a hilarious to mock your pals over their weak attempts at drawing.
