Submit the best and worst Draw Something sketches

Sonja Thompson challenges the TechRepublic community to submit what they consider to be the best and worst Draw Something sketches.

In a previous post, I listed five of the most addictive smartphone apps. The most addictive app, in my opinion, is Draw Something Free, which is available (with ads) for both iOS and Android. I've been playing this app daily since I downloaded it about three months ago. I select random opponents (I currently have 18 in my queue), and their skill level ranges from fine details to random lines and blobs of color - or worse, they write the word instead of attempt to draw it.

I've run across other "Best of Draw Something" galleries on the web, but I thought I'd challenge the TechRepublic community to submit what they consider to be the best and worst Draw Something sketches. The first step, of course, is to download the Draw Something Free app. After you've set up a username, click create game. Select your opponent by username, email, or random. When you run across a best or worst sketch entry, send it in as an email attachment (along with your TR username) to trol at techrepublic.com. We'll accept entries until 5:00 PM EDT on June 30, 2012.

Happy drawing!

You could be lame and take a pic with a camera of your phone/tablet while the drawing it taking place :P I have taken screen shots with my A500 running ICS of a draw something that my buddy did. I'll definitely send it your way. You would be amazed at how well he can draw, and he is almost 100% blind.

Apparently this article expects everyone to be using the official phone of the Sheeple,... iPhone. If you have an Android, you'll need to download the SDK kit (Google it) and install it on a PC or Mac to connect to the phone and then take the screenshot using the OS of the computer. (Google prevents screenshot apps from working for security reasons.) Or, you can root the phone so that 3rd party apps can get around those deep permissions requirements. (Depending on which device... I've heard that the Galaxy S has built-in screenshot capability, but I don't know for sure.)

How do you capture a screen shot of it on an Android phone?

Hitting home and back together seems to work on a Galaxy with every app I've tried.
