Microsoft has confirmed it will be releasing a new Xbox LIVE app on Apple iOS 5 ecosystem, allowing users to track achievements, interact with friends, and customize avatars.
Similar in kind to the app already on the company's Windows Phone 7 operating system the new app launched today, becoming available on both the iPhone, iPad and iPod Touch. The app allows users to read and send messages via Xbox LIVE, view and compare achievements and invite people to their friend list.
As well as the social features, like the Windows 7 version, the app will also allow users to customise their avatar's appearance on the move. Unfortunately for those with a more archaic iOS device, the app is only compatible with iPad, iPod Touchs and 3GS, 4 and 4S iPhones loaded with iOS 4.3 or later.
