Xbox Live App on Andriod.....finially

Today brings the Andriod version of the Xbox live app that had previously been available to Iphone and Itouch users. There is also a huge update for the iOS version of the app bringing a re-designed UI and added features.

For iOS users the 1.5 update lets you connect with your console, searching for new Xbox content right from your iDevice. Once you find something you’d like to watch you can use your device as a remote control, with the usual play, pause, and fast forward and rewind controls you would expect to use to navigate content. The update also brings improved authentication, and high resolution imagery for new iPad users.

For all you Android gamers, you won't be getting the full remote control treatment that iOS just received, but you will still get to customize your avatar, track achievements, make changes to your LIVE profile, and chat with your LIVE friends. And while you may be lacking the search and console control features seen on the competing platforms, the app is responsive and very well made, most likely belying a level of commitment that will see it catch up with the other apps in the near future.
