    Draw Something will occasionally send me spam in the form of a notification on my lock screen. This isn't just the nudges from other users that I expect but ads for other games which I hate. How can I disable them? I went in to Settings > Notifications > Draw Something > Notification Center and turned it to Off, but I still got more notification spam.

    Is there any way to turn off the spam without disabling the nudges? I doubt it but I thought I'd ask. And if there isn't, how about turning off all notifications for Draw Something? Thanks.

    I'm using iOS 5.1 on the iPhone 4S. Thanks.

    No you can't disable a specific type of notification.

    Under Notification Centre you need to set banners and lock screen to None too.

    Send a complaint to Apple too, apps aren't allowed to advertise like this. Leave the devs some feedback too.

    Sorry for the bump. I've captured some screenshots of similar spam from other apps. Where can I send the complaints?
