Official Xbox Live App Hits the iPad and iPhone







Microsoft has released an official Xbox Live iOS app. The free app, for iPhone and iPad, allows users to:
Quote:
- Read and send messages to Xbox 360 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
Microsoft has released a number of iOS apps, but with millions of Xbox Live members, this may be the most popular yet.

My Xbox LIVE is available for iPhone and iPad free on the App Store. [Direct Link]

I have always had issues with their website on firefox and safari. I find adding :80 to the end of the .com always works well. I don't know why, but it works...

It's working every time for me now. Very nice App. Very slick I think. Much better than 360 Live. I like how you can watch the Spotlight Videos now. It's very fluid.

That is the official character of Microsoft support. His slogan is; "Meh, what are you going to do?"

LOLOLOLOL! I really hope that is not a real Microsoft page... Seriously, is that photoshopped? I don't know which is funnier if it is a legit webcap or doctored...

This is a good app and I would recommend it. It is better than other 360 apps such as iNXE or 360 live. It gives the options of these apps but also goes further as you can now send and receive messages instead of just sending them. Avatars are also in full 3D and move around. Props equipped to an avatar also work. Another cool thing is if you shake your device your avatar falls over. I must say though its a bit weird seeing a Windows Phone 7 UI on an iOS device.

Have no idea why this is coming up, nowhere on xbox.com or under my live.com ID do I even see an option mentioning parental control.

There must be away to turn off those annoying sound effects each time you press something in the app.

The app crashes for me every time I try to access my messages or tap on a game to see its achievements. Am I the only one?

Well, this will be a handy complement to my xbox... I can send messages and do "xbox live stuff" separately on my iPad while playing my games... Can't wait to try it out!

Metro looks like a nice touch interface, based on this app, but I'm not enjoying it on the XBox. It's dog slow to navigate especially since they insist on placing 'games' all the way down the list - after all the buzzwords and just before 'preferences'. Stupid. Admit the XBox is a games console!

This is a very nice app, but it's not without its bugs. Trying to adjust the volume or bring up controls while watching a video seems to crash the app more often than not. I also wish the animations weren't so long. They're cool, but I'd rather get to my content faster.

I have to disagree with you on this, I think it's clutter free and makes it easier to navigate.

Only thing I do not like is the Netflix update, I think it is greatly inferior to the last one. This might be my only grime and a small one at that..

If I had to choose between an Android, or Windows Phone 7, I'd definitely going WP7. I've always waned one.
Now I can some-what have one with this app. Very similar to WP7 UI.

Awesome App.

Would have been nice to use it last night when they had election coverage using SmartGlass.
