How to Add Friends to Game Center on iPhone or iPad

Come to think of it, the concept of Game Center is nothing new but the way Apple played it, no pun intended, was neat. Game Center is Apple’s way of making games social and so, more fun and entertaining.

Games you find on the App Store – many of them – link to the Game Center so you can have a common leaderboard. But the real beauty of Game Center is when you can actually have your friends on it, compare scores, compete with them on your favorite games and more.
