Turf Bombing on your iPhone

The creator of Turf Bombing emailed to let me know this creative web application now supports iPhones with Locatable installed.  This is a great concept that blends real locations with a virtual game that can be played on both laptops and mobiles.  (And you'll probably have an advantage playing on an iPhone with GPS, as WiFi-based locations are often far less accurate.)
Here's a brief description of the concept:
Turf Bombing is a location-based turf battle game which rewards and encourages traveling and learning about different neighborhoods.  Gangs are assigned by the zip code of your home address. The goal of each gang is to gain as much territory as possible.  Territories are acquired as players plant time bombs at different locations in physical space. If the bomb is not diffused by a local gang member in time, the bomb will explode and the territory will be turned over to the gang that planted the bomb.
