Microsoft has just announced the availability of the official Xbox Live app for the iOS platform. The free app can be run on both the iPhone and the iPad. This is a much more simpler version than what is found on the Windows Phone 7 version. You can change your 3D avatar outfit, send messages to other Live users, track and compare your achievements and edit your profile. You can also jump into the games hub to learn about the latest LIVE games and apps. Also access Xbox Spotlight feeds where you get game tips, tricks and breaking news.
This is great addition for Xbox LIVE gamers who don’t have a Windows Phone 7. One main reason to get it is so that you can send messages to your friends which is easier to type on the iPhone and iPad than using the Xbox game controller. Will this be the start of future Microsoft products being ported to the iOS platform as well?
App size: 17.4 MB
Supported: iPhone & iPad
