Xbox LIVE for iPad

Microsoft has released a new app that lets you access your Xbox Live account on an iPhone, iPod touch, or iPad. The free app is called My Xbox Live, and it offers many of the features that you can find in the company’s Windows Phone 7 app.

You can view your achievements, send messages to your friends, read news about apps and games, and change your Xbox Live avatar.

Windows Phone 7 users can also control media playback on an Xbox from a phone. That feature is sadly missing from the iOS app. But pretty much everything else is there — including Windows Phone 7 Metro-style buttons at the bottom of the iPhone version of the app.
