“Most games on Facebook are built using Adobe Flash and therefore don’t work on the iPad,” Tricia Duryee reports for AllThingsD.
“While Facebook is slowly working out the kinks to bring more games to mobile, there’s a small company in Menlo Park, Calif., that has beat them to it,” Duryee reports. “iSwifter is announcing a new iPad app today called theWorx for Facebook, which gives users the full Facebook experience — social games and all.”
Duryee reports, “iSwifter will host the content on its servers and then stream the games to the user on the iPad with little latency. By taking this approach, users will have access to all games on Facebook without developers having to lift a finger… TheWorx will be free for a short trial period, and then users will pay for additional access. The app will come out later this month or in early June. At that time, iSwifter’s co-founder Rohan Relan said, they will figure out how much they will charge. The iSwifter app currently costs $5.”
