Social City iPhone App Lets You Manage Your Town From Anywhere

iPhone, Social City

Playdom has brought their massively popular city building simulator Social City to the iPhone with the release of a free app on iTunes.

The Social City app allows you to manage and update your city from anywhere. You’ll be able to get alerts as to when your factories’ contracts are complete, and, of course, spend real money on the game’s premium currency, City Bucks, from directly within the app, using your iTunes account.

As announced over the game’s Facebook fan page, Playdom is giving away 5 free City Bucks to all users who download the application, giving you no good reason to skip it if you own an iPhone – even if you never use the app again, free City Bucks seem worth the few seconds it takes to download the application.

We can only hope that this is the first of many apps to be given a mobile treatment – which games would you like to be able to play while on the go?

    After a week, you have to pay 1 city buck to access your factories… lame app

    Yikes! I guess that would explain the 5 free city bucks for using the app to begin with – thanks for passing along that news!!

    In the words of DeAndre Cole, “What up with that?!?” If you can't access factories, you really can't earn enough money to do anything else in the game – so you'd have to log in on Facebook anyway, rendering the iPhone app virtually useless, right? That's a shame – I was hoping for a handier way to manage Mongoose Metro ;)

    Stupid app. I tought it would be free to manage your factories. It was, for the first week only. Now you have to pay 1 city buck a day :S lame….

    so stupid to have to pay to collect the factories- don't pay on Facebook so why are we paying on the app? stick an ad on it instead and keep it free like the FB game
