Zynga's popular smartphone game Words With Friends is now available on Facebook, the company said Monday. The game, which is similar to the classic board game Scrabble, is currently available only for iOS and Android devices. The Facebook transition represents the first time that the company has brought a mobile game to Facebook, rather than the inverse. Zynga acquired With Friends series developer Newtoy for an alleged $53.3 million last December. According to the company, the daily users for the game doubled after the acquisition. The game continues to chart on the iPhone App Store: it was among the top ten games just this morning.
