OpenFeint announced today that they have developed and launched GameFeed, a cross platform news ticker that features real-time updates from other players in your OpenFeint network. Using GameFeed, developers can deliver news that is directly related to the game you're playing, while you're playing it. A quote from Jason Citron, OpenFeint founder and CEO sums it up nicely:
GameFeed connects people by taking a simple act, like finishing a level or posting a high score, and turning it into a meaningful, cross platform shared experience.
OpenFeint is the largest mobile gaming network, and a big part of the success can be attributed to their quick embrace of the Android platform. We all know that cross-platform social gaming is more fun, simply because the user base is much larger. Many of the people on my OpenFeint friends list are using iOS devices, and a few even use both iOS and Android. Bringing things like realtime leader board updates can only make it better. Hopefully, we'll be seeing some games with GameFeed enabled soon. The full press release is after the break.
