Sure we may not have Draw Something on the BlackBerry PlayBook, but we do have an amazing alternative called Sketch with Friends. The recent update to Sketch with Friends brings the application to version 1.2.3 and along with it they have brought some awesome new things. First of all they have released a free version as well as the paid version, so you can now try it out before you buy it. In addition to the free version they have also made quite a few changes to the actual application and its performance such as:

  • Exclusive gaming zone called “The Platinum Lounge” for paid users only where players can play across all platforms (iPad, Android Tablets etc.). This zone has 50 game rooms as of now
  • “The Salon”- where both free and paid users can play across all platforms. This zone again has 50 rooms, which will be increased in the immediate next update 
  • Improved word list 
  • Performance improvements and bug fixes related to gameplay 
  • We've now upgraded to a larger server which takes care of most of the connectivity issues

If you are already play Sketch with Friends be sure to hop into App World and grab the update, and if you have been waiting to give it a shot, try the free version now!

Sketch with Friends updated to version 1.2.3, brings free version, performance boosts and more


great! we have an app, an PAID app that no one uses outside BB community. Why? so we can say we have the same toys as the other kids? well, they are not the same if we are the only ones playing with them...

Don't be such a Negative Nancy - this is a great game!

And the only reason there's a free version now is because whiney baby people who are somehow too bloody cheap to fork over the $2 for the actual app, want to "try" it first.

Also, check your facts. I was in a room last night of ALL Android devices...

+1 for "Negative Nancy"

But seriously, this is a great game that I just downloaded and tried the free version. The game works smoothly and is in realtime. It's exactly like (via Shockwave). I was in rooms mostly filled with Androids so it shows there is interest from other platforms.

As a heads up, the trial/free version allows you to play only 2 or 3 rounds a day.

ugh, you are such a complainer...

As stated above, there are more Android users than Blackberry users, along with a handful of Apple Users.

This game is more challenging than Draw Something, and I prefer it since you can play against many people at a time.

I just can't state how much of a complainer you are, and quite the "Negative Nancy". Try being a Positive Pete for once in your life and maybe people won't shun you.

My free version doesn't work. . .(good thing there is a free version so I don't waste my hard earned money on something that doesn't work) I would like to actually pick the people I play with. . .is that even possible with Sketch with friends???

i just played the free version with a friend and liked it so much that i bought the pay version.. it's only 2 bucks and i prefer it over draw something

Yea. . .Hopefully I can get past the home screen to actually play. . .then I'd like it as much as everyone else and pay the $2. . .hopefully. . .

I am addicted to this game. Trolling people in the chat room is also pretty fun, but I really wish they'd start banning people who just write out the word - I know you can warn/kick them but they just re-join and ruin the game for everyone.

There is actually a way to boot the cheaters. Tap on a name and it will report it. Two users tapping on the same troll will get him/her out of the room.

This game is so-much-fun.

App developers must realize that a hit on the PlayBook will bring very good money to their pockets.

I cant download from the link using my pb. Appworld gives me an error message "This item is not supported by your current device profile."

Is there something that i need to do first before i download it?
