    OpenFeint could be thought of as the pre-Game Center Game Center for games, but the thing about OpenFeint is that it now also supports*<a href="http://www.cultofmac.com/openfeint-brings-cross-platform-multiplayer-between-ios-and-android/59378" target="_blank">cross-platform multiplayer between iOS and Android</a>.
