The official app is out from MS for ios :)

It's universal for iPad & iPhone

Nicer on iPad, wish it would let me go to the market and set downloads etc

First impressions is its quite nice. Not sure how to link it here straight to iTunes so if anyone does I'll copy the link in this post

Grabbed it earlier but cant try it out as it seems xbox has just died. Won't sign in on console or the companion app. Some friends , on various ISPs also can connect. Network tests all fail at the xbl stage.

Hands up who broke it then? Lol

I've had this app for years, this is not an 'official' app.
App is currently working for me...

Interesting, same thing here, on Sky broadband, everything on the network is working just fine, just the 360, it was working earlier this evening. I was on the beta, don't know if that makes any difference.

That's not the official app in the link if you search My Xbox Live you should find it.

It's very good, am impressed with it :)

Ah I see, I didn't follow the link just searched the app store on my phone. Can't believe anyone uses iTunes to buy apps, so much easier on the iPhone itself.

Anyway i've downloaded the new app but it's not up and running for me either.

If you click the link on your phone it takes you to the app store :)

Much better on Windows Phone but it's still nice on iOS, what I could use of it, my iPad 1 is busted now it just boots me out of apps all the time, kicks me out of Safari, kicks me out of Facebook when I try and upload a photo kicks me out of the Xbox app every time I go to messages. Love to know what's wrong with it :(

Its pretty slick I think, Yeah it could have more features but for something to quickly check friends online, messages and cheevo's I think its pretty cool.

Will come in handy when playing online and wanting to send out messages as I dont have the chatpad so this will make it easier :thumbsup:

It's a good start. Hopefully they update it over time so I can quickly search the marketplace and buy stuff and queue up downloads.

I would also be good if they added some remote control functionality too.

Ditto. Can't tell me that there aren't enough 2 and 3G's out there to make it compatible with all OS...

Works fine on the humble iPod if anybody still uses such a thing.

The app is great, now deleted 360Live that I've used for ages, this is so much better.

Can't believe they've included avatar editing, gives me something to do on the train! Haha. I tether my iPod btw ;)

Makes the Sony official app look... well a little poo!!

Why do MS make such good apps, yet Sony's are half-assed? Answers on a postcard c/o Sony.
