Zynga's wildly popular social game FarmVille is making the jump from social networks to iPhone, bringing with it in-app purchases from the game's virtual item marketplace.

"FarmVille is our most popular game and we're excited to bring it to the most popular gaming platform in the world," said Zynga CEO Mark Pincus today at Apple's Worldwide Developers Conference in San Francisco, attended by Gamasutra.

The iPhone app will sync up with players' FarmVille farms on other platforms, like its native Facebook, maintaining friends lists, game progress, and other data.

It will be available "in time for the one-year launch anniversary" of the original game, meaning it should appear on iPhone by June 19.

"Zynga is a remarkable phenomenon," added Apple CEO Steve Jobs.
