FarmVille is one hugely popular title, boasting over 75 million users worldwide. Well, the game is already one year old, but that doesn’t mean it is not about to lose its popularity anytime soon. To heat things even more, FarmVille will be released for the iPhone as well as iPod touch, virtually opening up new avenues for this title to reach millions of mobile users with the ability to play, engage and connect with their friends and family via social games. Looks like there is yet one more reason for you to purchase either device from Apple if mobile gaming is your cup of tea.

The FarmVille App offers users a new social gaming experience that leverages the power of the touch screen. By swiping a finger or double tapping to zoom in and out, players can view their farms, harvest crops or drive tractors. iPhone users will get alerted to the status of their crops and farm through push notifications. In addition, current FarmVille players can tend to their farms and continue to play at any time or place during their day. To commemorate the launch, Zynga is offering several exclusive market items and gifts available only to iPhone and iPod touch users. These items include a baby snow leopard and white apple trees. FarmVille App is free from the App Store or at www.itunes.com/appstore.

Don’t expect the goodies to just stop there though, as the future will see Zynga offer additional in-game features for the iPhone 4 and iOS 4 including the multi-tasking functionality and enhanced graphics to showcase the retina display. If you already have your FarmVille fix over in Facebook, are you willing to fork out more money to purchase an iPhone or iPod touch (if you haven’t done so already) just to get a mobile FarmVille experience?
