VIDEO: Not surprisingly, the Windows Phone version of the Xbox Live app ...
It wonât help you get every achievement in whatever game, nor make you dinner, but itâs still a very neat thing to have. And if Microsoft was smart, they should totally work on the first bit.
Whereas the iPhone/iPad version will help you watch assorted, Xbox specific videos, let you look at your virtual self on the go, plus who else is online, and keep track of what games still have pending achievement point gaps to close in on, the Windows Phone app can do a whole lot moreâ¦
I donât know a single soul who actually purchases music or movies from Microsoftâs Zune store, but all the other bits of functionality that the app provides looks promising. Like the ability to watch a movie via Netflix streaming, but also interact with Xbuds via the phone, without having to interrupt your movie sounds kinda awesome.
Though what would be really awesomeâ¦ and one has to assume that MS is already working on itâ¦ is to turn your Windows Phone into a game controller of some sort. Not only would that seriously boost traction for their handset (which I think is awesome btw, totally love the new platform; itâs not some crappy iOS wannabe like Android), but would also deflate the plans of Nintendo something fierce, since the Wii U is essentially going to be controlled by an extremely iPad-like device.
