GameFly offers video game content information via iPhone app

Online video game rental service GameFly has launched a free mobile application for Apple iPhone and iPod Touch users that provides news, videos, user reviews and other information on video game content.

Online video game rental service GameFly Inc. has launched a free mobile application for Apple iPhone and iPod Touch users that provides news, videos, user reviews and other information on video game content.

The GameCenter App is now available at Apple Inc.’s iTunes App Store giving iPhone and iPod Touch users access to information on more than 5,000 video games across major platforms such as Microsoft’s Xbox 360, Nintendo’s Wii and DS, and Sony’s PSP and PlayStation 2 and 3.

GameCenter incorporates search functionality with suggest-as-you-type predictions, GameFly says, enabling fast mobile access to in-depth game information such as news articles, previews, trailers, screenshots, publisher and developer information, recent user and game critic reviews, box art, cheat codes, and game controls.

Breaking news articles feed in from game news sites directly to the app, and interactive features support syncing with Facebook and Twitter accounts, enabling information sharing among friends. GameFly subscribers also can use the app to manage their game rentals and member information.

“We designed GameCenter to provide iPhone and iPod Touch users with a complete one-stop destination for video game information,” says Sean Spector, GameFly co-founder and senior vice president of business development and content. “Additionally, the app will allow iPhone and iPod Touch users to discover and share games they love anywhere they go.”

GameFly is No. 274 in the Internet Retailer Top 500 Guide.
