Microsoft New Releases

One of the most interesting things I came across recently is that Microsoft released an Xbox Live app for iOS devices on, which is bringing features of Microsoft’s gaming service to Apple devices for the first time. The application which called “My Xbox Live” lets users edit their 3-D avatars, chat with Xbox Live friends and revel in their achievements. Users will be able to also check out more information about the newest apps and games on Xbox, as well as gaming tips and breaking news.

As we know that Windows Phone users have had Xbox Live services packaged into their mobile experience for a bit of time now, but now iOS users can get a piece of the action. And whether they like it or not, iOS users who download the app are also getting a screen similar to a Windows Phone-style user interface. The iPhone app features the horizontal bar across the bottom of the screen that houses the same sort of circular icons users would find in a Windows Phone 7 app. In addition the application included a clever browser-based demo that allows users virtually explore the UI of a Windows Phone from your Android or iPhone handset.

There been good news for Microsoft users, the company unveiled the details of its upcoming Windows Store for Windows 8, the newest version of the world’s most popular desktop platform which will be a available in the market soon. In addition  the company just  announced  not long time ago that the Xbox was getting a user interface refresh, with dozens of new content channels and the addition of a Windows Phone app you can use to control your Xbox. The question a rise is what other companies will release for the technology race?
