Facebook Connect available for iPhone

Facebook has announced that their Facebook Connect service is now available for the Apple iPhone.  This means that developers of iPhone applications can now integrate a social component.  In times when social networking has become more popular than e-mail, this is a smart move.

Facebook Developers program manager Gareth Davis: “With just a few lines of Objective-C code, your users can log in to Facebook from within your app, find their friends, then share what they do in your app back on Facebook, which opens up exciting new opportunities for your users.”

This offers many possibilities; for example an iPhone game, allowing the player to connect to Facebook and share his score with his Facebook friends, to play games with friends, to see their movie recommendations, to chat during live sports games, etc.
