For those of us who wish we can take our Xbox consoles around with us everywhere we go, there are new apps available that bring Xbox LIVE to us wherever we travel.

One day after launching an official Xbox app for Windows mobile devices, Microsoft yesterday unveiled the My Xbox LIVE app that is universally playable on iOS devices. We expect an Android version and perhaps availability on other platforms in the coming days.

Says the official Major Nelson blog for Xbox:

This free app will allow you to stay connected to the Xbox LIVE community when you are away from your console. Some of the features include:

  • Read and send messages to friends
  • Manage your friends list, invite new friends
  • Read and Edit your full LIVE profile (name, bio, motto)
  • Change your avatar features/items with the avatar closet
  • View and compare your achievement progress with friends

Stay tuned for a comprehensive review and analysis of this new must-have application for Xbox and iOS gamers alike!
