Well, we announced that the release of the Xbox Companion application on Windows Phone would take place December 6, you probably also noticed it never showed up on the marketplace. Well, now, the application is finally available, one day later. We can only assume (as not much reason was given for the delay with the application) that the Xbox 360 update problems also somehow affected the Xbox Companion application. Technical problems with the big Fall Xbox 360 update almost delayed the release an entire 24 hours, but late last night the update started populating for Xbox 360 users.
Go get your hands on the Xbox Companion application now and enjoy the magical control your Windows Phone gives you over your Xbox 360 now!

It was a good day all around, except for Android users.
Yep but I know android users are usually more inclined to use a ps3. I love being able to control the Xbox with my phone lol. My little brother has no idea this app exists so I’m screwing with him while he plays halo.

LOL that’s awesome!
Funny, I wonder why they put a “only on windows phone” at the end of the video then… ^^
Because the iOS app is extremely basic, WP7 already had far more functionality that the iOS app.
My money says Microsoft will now try and get all the 3rd party XBL apps on iOS closed. Maybe thats where all the recent phishing issues have come from.
