I'm trying to compile a list of iphone games that has some level of integration with

I'm trying to compile a list of iphone games that has some level of integration with Facebook so that the game can be played against facebook friends who have the corresponding app on the facebook side. Right now i can only think of three, but would like to keep a running list of any other games some of you may find. Also, if you have direct experience with a game, please provide some additional comments on any issues you found with the app, both good and bad.


1) Scrabble

Great iphone version and easy to start a game or connect to a game a friend started, however i found the connection dropping all the time whether i was on wifi or 3g. Frustrating for sure, but still allowed me to play considering that the time in between turns can get rather lengthy. If EA could fix the dropping of the connection, this would make it so much more enjoyable.

2) Live Poker by Zyngar

I love poker, and playing against other live players on facebook is even better. Suffers from occassional lag that is frustrating in the sense when i'm trying to raise or call, my clicks don't register before my turn times out. The app has folded many a great hand when i actually wanted to be in the pot or continue. Also, they need to keep a real time running count of the pot, right now the system doesn't leaving me to guesstimate the pot size when i try to size my bets or calculating EV.

3) Who has the Biggest Brain?

Great implementation of the facebook version. Very entertaining. I read complaints in the app store about lags and such on the iphone version, however I personally haven't experienced any myself with the initial version.

4) Binay Game

http://itunes.apple.com/WebObjects/MZStore.woa/wa/viewSoftware?id=304957372&mt=8

Simple but fun and well done game with high speed gameplay, leaderboards, and facebook too! It's definitely worth the 99 cents it costs right now on sale and he's got a major update ready to hit any day...


I look forward to hearing about any other apps that some of you might have come across.
