AviWorlds launches Facebook app

AviWorlds Facebook appAviWorlds now has a Facebook app that allows people to take pictures in-world and post them to Facebook.

Many other grids have Facebook pages, but the only other commercial grids with Facebook apps are Island Oasis, which launched theirs late last year, and Kitely, which has had one since 2011.

Second Life used to have a Second Life Link app for Facebook, but that seems to be down, and there is now an SLShare feature built into the viewer that makes it easier to post things to Facebook from inside Second Life.

InWorldz also has its InShape app for iOS and Android mobile devices, and Avination has an iOS app and an Android app for chat and news.

The AviWorlds Facebook app is brand new, and the grid is still working on its functionality.

“It will also let you register,” grid owner Alexandro Pomposelli told Hypergrid Business.

He added that AviWorlds developer Quill Littlefeather is currently working on adding money purchases.

“He just rolled out the new version last night,” said Pomposelli. “A few adjustments are needed.”

AviWorlds is a US-based commercial, hypergrid-enabled social grid popular with Portuguese-speaking users. It is also one of the lowest-cost grids, with full regions starting at just $5 per month.

Am I missing any other Facebook apps that grids have? Please let me know in the comments!

    Just one small correction. AviWorlds is not a brazilian grid. It is multinational and Brasilian is.not the only community we have. SL biggest community is brasilian and that does not make them a brazilian grid.
    AviWorlds has italians spanish, french Japanese, americans which is the second biggest community in AviWorlds, dutch,and english.
    Our website is all in Emglish also.

    I wanted to comment that the aviworld’s Facebook app is our version of the slshare so that means that you can post pictures and status for both Facebook and twitter in the viewer.

    We are also implementing Paypal into the grid so you can like your game account with Paypal an be able to buy currency in the viewer without having to go thru any additional steps, you can also instantly buy items on the new marketplace with Paypal as soon as it is finished.

    I have hired a Paypal API expert to design the system for us.

    I also want to point out that the americans own the biggest land mass in AviWorlds. They have more land than the brazilians.
