Introducing the official Xbox LIVE iOS App

Xbox LIVE has released the official Xbox LIVE app for iOS owners. This is a universal iOS app.

This free app will allow you to stay connected to the Xbox LIVE community when you are away from your console. Some of the features include:

  • Read and send messages to friends
  • Manage your friends list, invite new friends
  • Read and Edit your full LIVE profile (name, bio, motto)
  • Change your avatar features/items with the avatar closet
  • View and compare your achievement progress with friends

     
     


I’ve posted some screenshots to give you an idea of what to expect

You can download the free app here 

Also, yesterday, we introduced the Xbox Companion for Windows Phone 7, which has even more features than the iOS app. You can see details and download that free app here.

      Android has greater market share only if you think the iPhone is the only iOS device. Last time I checked, though, iPhone accounted for less than half of iOS device sales.

      If you count iPad and iPod touch sales, I’m pretty sure iOS still outsells Android.  (Is there even an Android equivalent of the iPod touch?)

    Can’t run it … you guys say it’s for “all iPhones/iPods”, but setting the app to require ver. 4.3 locks out iPhone 3G users.

      Android shafts itself. There probably aren’t enough Android devices on the right version or with enough power to run this. Besides, why should Microsoft give a damn about Android?

        If it can run on iPhone (and it looks like this includes even those older than 3GS), then it can run on majority of modern Android devices.

    Most developers don’t care about Android due to fragmentation of hardware and software.

      Yea… it’s not as fragmented as the media makes it out to be….. take it from an Android Developer…. Especially for these types of applications.

        Meaning??? I have many paid apps on my Galaxy S2, if the dev offers paid version in Market I’ll normally opt for that, most are quite cheap prices, I’m not that tight to resist paying for an app that costs £1.99 etc

      I’d pay for it too, but maybe we’re in the minority. Apparently a few pennies is extortionate to some Android users out there😛
