Facebook Connect comes to Android with social game

Social games publisher Playfish has announced that its Who Has The Biggest Brain? game is now available for Android, following its launch on iPhone earlier this year.

The game started life as a game on Facebook, letting people play brain training mini-games then compare their cranial prowess with friends.

"Like 15 million web users and countless iPhone users, Android fans will now be able to play together with their Facebook friends anytime, anywhere," says Playfish's blog post announcing the news.

That presumably means that the Android game uses the same Facebook Connect technology as the iPhone version - which as far as we're aware is the first implementation of Facebook Connect in an Android game or application.

Several publishers and developers are using the technology to connect iPhone gamers with their Facebook networks, including Tapulous, Ngmoco and SGN.

I have been working in the brain fitness space since 2001 and we have come along way. There has been significant scientific studies over the last 5 years that illustrate how we can maintain and develop our cognitive skills through our lifespan. Our company has started to launch pilots that provide more efficacy to our software. I truly believe the next 5 years will see a lot of positive developments in this area.
