GameFly Adds Social Networking Component to Popular Android App

The official GameFly application has been updated today, adding the social networking component to the app and breathing new life into an already great app.  Available immediately in the Android Market, the 2.0 release of GameFly lets users create profile pages and browse others, post updates and share, find friends and new games to play, and much more.

“We’re very proud that our mobile App appeals to all gamers, not just GameFly members, giving them top quality news and information, and a very interactive social experience,” said Sean Spector, GameFly co-founder and SVP of Business Development and Content. “With an average in-App session lasting more than an hour, the new social features are a great resource for casual or avid gamers to learn about what’s hot or not, and to meet new people to game with.”

After already amassing more than one million downloads, we imagine this new social networking feature opens the door up to an even larger audience. Press release and download links after the break!
