Zynga ( ZNGA) is trending after the company agreed to buy OMGPOP, maker of the popular Draw Something game, for a reported roughly $200 million. The transaction is Zynga's largest to date. Zynga has said it didn't buy the company just for the Draw Something game, but for the fact that it believes OMGPOP has a lot of great ideas in its pipeline. According to Zynga, Draw Something has sparked 35 million downloads and risen to the top of the Apple and Android app charts in 84 countries. Zynga reportedly plans to help translate the game into more languages and develop it for more Android devices.
