I’d love to have any of you check out my facebook app that lets you play games. Reviews I’ve been getting from other facebook members are that its better than mindjolt.
About page: https://www.facebook.com/apps/application.php?id=50789923495

Application Link: https://apps.facebook.com/timsgames

Basically this is an app that lets you play flash based games. I believe my site has some of the best features anywhere, which go far beyond what the other facebook game portal sites do. My site integrates more with facebook by posting your high scores and game plays to your news feed, notifies the old high score owner if you take the all time highs score, shows you what your friends are playing and localizes high scores to just your group of friends, and more.

Take a break and check it out today!
