We don't normally post about beta tests for upcoming apps, but Swipe Interactive's QuickDraw game seems unique enough that we felt it would be of interest.

The developer describes the upcoming game as real-time online multiplayer drawing game with up to 10 players competing. Each user takes a turn to draw a picture which describes the given word. The drawing is transmitted to the other users' screens and the one that guesses quickest wins the point. The player with the most points at the end of the round wins. The game is said to work over Wi-Fi, 3G and Edge.

The developers are asking for testers for a limited beta. Sign up at their site but space is limited.

Overall, there aren't enough online multiplayer iPhone games and this one sounds particularly promising.

    OMG!!! I love this game!!! I play a similar game on my desktop at isketch.net. It's funny while I was enjoying the game a couple of days ago that a game like isketch would be absolutely perfect for the iPhone/iPod Touch. Yay, I love touching and drawing!!!

    To beta test iPhone software, Apple requires that you compile individually for each iPhone specifically which is called "ad hoc". To do this, they need your serial number. Very standard practice for iPhone beta testing.

    thanks for your comments guys - looking forward to getting this out to release!

    In response to your concerns about serials - the serial number is so we can send you the app via the 'ad hoc' distribution method - we need it to uniquely generate an application for you (it's just how Apple do it!). There's nothing else we can do with your serials, and of course we would never send your codes to anyone else.

    If you would like to hear from us when we release the app, but don't want the beta, then just leave the field blank and we'll be in touch!

    Sounds similar to Yahoo Graffiti (Java web game) which I always thought was fun.

    beta releases will be sent out in the next 48 hours to the first 100 applicants! even if you're reading this later than that - sign up to get updates about the app!

    as this app needs to be pretty much there before a beta test is even possible, we should also be ready for release very soon!! we hope that the testing will reveal no major problems (trust me, we've tested it as much as possible already, it's addictive!) We hope to submit the app to the store next week, so will hopefully be available in the app store within a few weeks! Again, if you want us to keep you up to date with the progress, just sign up for the beta (ignore the serial field if you don't want to actually take part..)

    I hope I am one of the first 100, but highly doubt it as it looks like I am a little late to the game. Game looks great. Wonderful idea!

    Wait, it doesn't ask for the serial numbers. Just the identification codes... that's what I used.

    Was that right?
