Facebook Games: Five of The Best

Facebook has provided the perfect platform for game developers to launch massive social multi-player games.

Just a few of the many amazing Facebook games stats is that over 56 million people play Facebook games every single day!

The reason for this is that Facebook games are a lot of fun to play, either with your very own circle of friends, or with new friends from all over the world.

Here are five of the most fun games available for free now on Facebook.

Word Challenge

Are you a word freak? Does playing scrabble get you excited. Then Word Challenge by Playfish might be for you.

The objective of this game is simple. You get 6 letters out of which you have to construct as many words as you can within a given time. 3- letter words are of course many and you’ll be rewarded points for finding them. But the bonus and crown points are for 4 , 5 and 6-letter words. They give you points and more time.

One reason for addiction to this game is their ratings. They have a character corresponding to a range of points. So the lowest score will generate an infant character implying your low vocabulary strength.

Give Word Challenge a play and find out what characters await your word prowess!

The Facebook App for the iPhone

By: Garin Kilpatrick

The Facebook App is listed in the Apple App directory as one of the most popular apps of all time. 

The first time I used this app I found that it was very easy to navigate and well designed.

All of the different parts of facebook are accessible via large icons.

The only problem with this app is that sometimes it is very slow.  If you are searching for a friend it might take a while if you have over a thousand friends.

I have the latest version of the iPhone, the 3Gs, and although the S in 3GS is supposed to stand for speed I found this app to be very slow compared to accessing facebook on a computer.

A better way to access facebook on the iPhone is by using the Safari Web Browser built into the iPhone. Simply surf to: http://iphone.facebook.com/ and enjoy facebook on your iPhone.

The web version of Facebook is optimized for the iPhone and works great.  The Auto-complete feature even works as I type a friends name in the search box.

I keep the facebook app installed if I ever want to do a quick status update.

The facebook application is currently shooting up the ranks as one of the most popular applications to date and there are already more than 15,253,000+ iPhone users who have installed the app.

Although the Facebook app for iPhone is slow a nice feature of it is how it is completely ad free.
