OpenFeint Gaming Comes To Andoid

iOS game developer OpenFeint has announced that the company will be bringing its open-source gaming platform to Google's Android OS.

According to recently released data by analytics firm comScore, Google's Android OS is the fastest growing mobile operating system in the world, and is currently eating into the market share of Apple's iOS and RIM's BlackBerry.

Unlike Apple's iOS 4, Android has so far lacked a comprehensive gaming platform. OpenFeint allow developers to create games that come with social networking capabilities.

OpenFeint, launched for Apple's iOS in 2009, has 28 million active game players and is looking to increase the number by integrating itself with Google's Android OS.

Apple developers have been using the platform's open-source software development kit to incorporate OpenFeint into their applications.

OpenFeint is currently working with independent game developers Hudson, Digital Chocolate, Pik Pok and Rocket Cat games to create content for the platform.
