Facebook Connects... with iPhone Scrabble

Scrabble on the iPhone, meet Scrabble on Facebook! Thanks to Facebook Connect, players on the iPhone can invite Facebook friends to join them in games, turns taken on the iPhone appear on the Facebook board, and it even supports chat between players. Says Macworld:

Many leading experts have said that the future of the iPhone lies in its social features. EA Mobile has bridged two of its popular versions of the game in a social marriage that promises to bring new players to the addictive word challenge game and give existing players new ways of interacting.

Any iPhone Facebookers (Facebooked iPhoners?) going to jump on this?

I'd love to see this for Lexulous! I've always liked this better than the MB Scrabble version.

Wyatt says:

Looks like Microsoft's "Welcome to the Social" more applies to the iPhone than the Zune. I'd much rather chat with other people and friends over a board game than to see what's on their PMP. Nothing really social about that compared to a good ole head to head game of scrabble.

Josh says:

While I still loathe the "official" Facebook Scrabble I have to admit this is cool. I have played a game already in progress and started a new game, both worked perfectly. Very impressive.
