Xbox 360 iPhone App Launches

Xbox 360 iPhone App Launches

A new $1.99 iPhone app has been released that allows you to sign into the service securely using your existing Xbox Live credentials.

According to the firm behind the app, the program has been designed for hardcore Xbox 360 gamers and iPhone owners. The app retrieves your friends Xbox Live stats such as their gamerscore, online status, gamer pictures, avatars, latest games and achievements. You can also send and receive messages using the app.

The full set of features reads:

  • Sign in securely using your Xbox Live credentials. 360 Live automatically retrieves your friends.
  • Complete Gamertags management. Add, remove, accept or reject pending requests.
  • An organized Friends List. Grouped by status (Online, Offline, etc.)
  • Gamer Profile and details including gamerscore, bio, location, country, gamercard, avatar, etc.
  • Check your friends complete games history.
  • Compare locked and unlocked achievements per game and gamertag.
  • Send and receive messages. You can even send messages to multiple recipients!
  • Gamercard coverflow style carrousel on landscape mode!

Microsoft may axe the $1.99 charge for the app though as Joystiq reports that back in August ‘08 Microsoft mandated that all Xbox Live-related applications be free.
