Microsoft: iPhone Xbox Live Apps Must Be Free

Microsoft has officially halted the distribution of all Xbox Live-related iPhone applications via Apple's App Store -- not to quell creative coding, but instead to mandate that all such programs must be offered to users free of charge.

They dont get any of the money because they're free.

Maybe if you removed the egg from your face you could read better.

It's cool they are making it free ... but funny because Microsoft charges for EVERYTHING.

Remember when Epic wanted to make Gears maps for free but MS said no, they must charge ...

I hope they have something similar in the works for Zune, or it will quickly fall behind. Now, itunes sux MAJORLY so to me there's no better media library/store than Zune Marketplace. It's also fully integrated with your Xbox Live account, so your points are universally accessible across both.

But without an App Store-like option in the Zune, iPhone/iPod Touch still has an edge. I have the 80gb Zune Touch.

I personally own a Iphone and have the Xbox app where you can view friends that are online but its completly useless considering you can just access your full xbox live account by just going to the Xbox website on the Iphone's browser and not only that but you can message your friends if you just go to and log in, you cant even message your friends through the Iphone xbox app, just view who is online

I bought that same app. I want my money back!

Hopefully someone can get access to the API and actually make a Live Aware type of app for it. There is a great one for Mac and I think some decent widget type apps for Windows.

EDIT: lame since this app apparently sucks.
