Zynga’s Words With Friends App Coming to Facebook

Posted Aug 2, 2011

Zynga’s first mobile-to-Facebook app is the Scrabble-style Words With Friends, as the company announced Monday that the game will go live on the social network within the next couple weeks. Users with the mobile app may have noticed a “connect with Facebook” button added in the last update.  The app then shows the mobile user which of their Facebook friends also use Words With Friends, and how recently that user has played the game. The Facebook app and the mobile app appear to be pretty seamlessly integrated, and GigaOM reports that Facebook ads some social features to the game.

Zynga plans to go public soon, so the added revenue of Facebook’s version of Words With Friends will be a boon to the company.
