Smart Move, MS
I hope to see Sony do the same so that we can stay in touch with PSN friends. Good to see MS branching out and allowing iOS users to stay in touch with their XBL friends. I'll be downloading this soon. (XBL: Blu Matt PSN: blumatt)

@fluffydelusions
I think everyone knows you like Android by your avatar. That was absolutely unnecessary. Why is that Android fans are the ones that bash everyone else? You don't see NEARLY the amount of iPhone fans do the same. I've got an iPhone 4s and I enjoy it. It does everything that I need it to do (and more). I had first gotten an Android (Galaxy S2), but I hated not being able to integrate as easily with my iTunes content. DoubleTwist works okay, but not great. So, I took it back and got me a 16GB iPhone 4s and it's just great.

Only problem is the lack of a North American region availability, but it can still be installed.

I think I speak for everyone when I say: Thank you so much for letting us know that this means nothing to you and that you have an Android device. We are grateful. Truly. Words cannot express it. Our lives are now complete. We can die now, fully contented with the knowledge of your mobile operating system of choice that you have bestowed upon us.

In other words, nobody cares.

It's no secret that Micro$oft hates Android with a passion.
Highlife  +   965d ago
I love android too but I don't have to let everyone know. You could have just said it would be nice if they had an app for android as well.

@egidem
Don't see why android makes them more money than WP7

Glad to hear it's universal, they also came out with the WP7 one today, I wonder if they will do Android?
Letros  +   965d ago
The Xbox Companion app is exclusive to WP7, this is just a basic XBL app, should be on android too soon enough.
gamingdroid  +   965d ago
The Xbox Companion app is to control your Xbox 360 via your phone. The iOS XBL app is and has always been part of WP7.

Wouldn't surprise me if an Android app is coming soon as well.
Letros  +   965d ago
Yep, I have a WP7, gotta say, the companion app is pretty awesome.

@gamingdroid, I hope they do release an Android App as I would pick that up in a heart beat. As is, I use the Spark 360 app which works well but isn't free.

fooxy  +   965d ago

Now that is a bit of surprise move...and certainly a smart move on their part. Lets hope they release an android app too!

Really nice app actually, I'm surprised! Better late than never.
outlawlife  +   965d ago

JeffGUNZ  +   964d ago
Yeah, I was surprised how good it actually was. It's so nice when I can just check the app to see who is on and what they are playing.
SignifiedSix  +   965d ago
Come on, where's the widget for my IMac? lol.
I wish i had an ipad or ipod :/
