Hi,

I've just finished work on an app for windows mobile that allows you to view the status of your friends on xbox live.

It's an actual app, rather than a web browser pretending to be an app, that shows an iPhone style list of all your friends gamertags. It allows you to see whos online, what game they are playing, what they are doing in that game, their gamer picture and gamer score.

Version 1.2.1.0
Features Added:

* Notification auto closes after 10 seconds
* Notifications have a button to take you to application for further details
* Application will notify you when a new version is available for download.

Bugs Fixed:

* Fixed memory leak
* Performance inprovement for scrolling
* Performance improvement to startup time
* Fixed problem with touch sensitivity on VGA devices
* Improved icon for VGA devices
* Minor tweeks


Version 1.2.0.0
This update adds an online notification system. Now when your friends come online you will get a Notification pop up to tell you whos just come online.

Features Added:

* Can run in background
* Auto refreshes GamerTags status, using configurable refresh interval
* Generates Windows Mobile Notifications when friends come online
* Notifications can be Enabled or Disabled
* Useability enhancements.


Version 1.0.1.2
Bugs Fixed:
Fixed startup bug, which occured on some devices
Fixed VGA QVGA display problem

Version 1.0.1.0
Features Added:
Trial mode added allowing users to test out the application.


The application requires .net 2.0, so if you are using anything thats older than windows mobile 6 you will need to download and install .net compact framework 2.0 or higher from Microsoft here

Attached is a screen shot. For more information or to download my app please go to my site: http://www.fehnerssoftware.co.uk

Well I would suspect iPhone owners paid for it, so why not cough up- if you want it?

I'm going to have to agree with the "try before you buy" feeling going on here.
At least take a video showing how the app works on your own phone please.

Although this would be an awesome app, I have been looking for a program or script that sends me an sms whenever a specific friend is on XBox Live so I can join up, any one heard of something that does that?

Hi all,

Thank you for the positive response

I've taken on board all your comments and aim to produce a limited feature trial version, which will allow you to try it out before committing to a purchase.

I will post back here when I have made the updates.

I like the idea of the app. But it doesn't seem to do enough for me to pay for it. I mean.. there are much more useful apps on this site(and others) for the ppc that are free.

I tip my hat to you sir. Nice looking app. You have inspired me to work on an open source version for myself.

Version 1.0.1.0 - trial mode
Hi again,

I have now updated my site with version 1.0.1.0 of my xbox live friends status app.

Version 1.0.1.0, will run in a trial mode while un-registered, so you can try it out. It is limited to displaying two gamer tags.

Hopefully this will give you a feel for the app.

For more information or to download my app please go to my site: http://www.fehnerssoftware.co.uk/mygamertags.shtml
