Farmville comes to the iPad

updated 05:30 pm EDT, Fri October 22, 2010

Free, available now, highly addictive

Zynga, the game powerhouse behind many successful Facebook and now iOS games, has launched its mega-popular Farmville strategy game as its first app for the iPad. The company has updated its existing free Farmville iPhone/iPod Touch app to be truly universal, creating new layouts, custom graphics and new gesture controls for the iPad "HD" edition. Users can tend to farms on any of Apple's mobile iOS devices, as well as through the web.

Zynga claims over 60 million players for Farmville overall, or about one percent of the earth's population, and says about 100,000 "gifts" are sent between iPhone/iPod Touch users each day. It first became a phenomenon on Facebook, but like many of Zynga's other games has moved on to other platforms. In addition to Farmville for the iPhone and iPod Touch, the company also offers Scramble, Live Poker, Mafia Wars, Vampires: Bloodlust and Street Racing.

Farmville for the iPhone and iPod Touch launched in late June and has regularly been in the top 25 for the games category since. Zynga is said to be working on an Android version of the game as well, but no launch date has been announced.
