If you’re a game fanatic and a smart-phone lover you can’t wait for both these elements to merge. With the recent news about Microsoft launching its Xbox Live application on Windows 8 smart-phones and later on the Apple’s App Store, users couldn’t wait for it to arrive in the Google Play Store but the wait has finally ended and right there in the Google Store is My Xbox Live application for avid game lovers.
Android has given its users uncountable applications, every personality, gender or ethnicity can find an application suitable for their preference and ideas but for game lovers the only thing that remained was Xbox’s social feature of online gaming. With this application users can now reap great benefits.
Although the application doesn’t let users use their smart-phones as the game console, this technological bridge is expected to shorten in the future but users can take care of their Xbox profile. They can look at their friend lists, edit their profiles and create personal Avatars. Apart from this users can look at their achievements and the Xbox Live Spotlight.
If you want to see where your friends are of if they’re available just pick up your Android phone and turn the Xbox Live application on. You can easily see which of your friends are available and what games they’re playing so if you’re free and available then start up your Xbox 360 and start gaming, and if nobody’s available or playing anything then better watch a movie, no need to start your console and wait for it to log on until you find out that no one’s available.
Although the Android market has different applications and there have been ways to log into your Xbox Live profile it still wasn’t the best convenience, elements like Spark 360 or Xbox Live Statistics were available but didn’t suit the users in ways that this application has. Firstly none of these applications were fast enough also they needed updates and manual pushes to check for any updates in friends lists or their information, this task was also quite slow and took time and nevertheless you had to purchase these applications before downloading them. So you’re quite really wasting your money on applications that are slow and non-updated and also have different widgets which aren’t useful causing your smart-phone’s screen to pile up with different features that you don’t want to use.
As Microsoft launched the Xbox Live Application it very well decreased the pain staking task of getting into your Xbox profile. Firstly the logging in part is quite fast, better than all others available. All your friends’ lists and their information is updated as you log in so you don’t need to manually refresh the information and it is quick as well. The best part is designing your personal avatar. You can spend time easily pinching and poking the screen and design your favorite outlook, an avatar that describes you. Finally the animations are clear and the application isn’t piled up with widgets and features you don’t want. It’s a clean and fresh application that doesn’t make the user feel rushed and piled up.
Altogether Android has made game lovers happier. This application will easily remove all its competitors in the Google Play Store and be victorious as its far better than any application available for Xbox users, the benefit being that this application is free for all and doesn’t need your credit card, although I wouldn’t mind paying a little for it considering it has made social interaction with my Xbox friends much easier.
