aurorashotsmallMost of us know the game AuroraFeint, the free puzzle game for the iPhone. The developers the of Aurora Feint are releasing OpenFaint, an API that will allow iPhone developers to integrate rich social features into their applications with a minimal amount of effort.

The OpenFeint Platform allows developers to integrate features including user profiles, Facebook-like walls, and chat rooms (which can either be game-specific or globally shared across all games). OpenFeint founders Jason Citron and Danielle Cassley say that the platform will save developers around two months of coding and only takes around two hours to integrate with its default UI (though developers will be free to customize the system to suit their games). And all chats will be hosted on the OpenFeint servers, so developers won’t have to worry about managing resources.
