Microsoft treats Windows Phone 7 like a spoiled child at times. It might not be their most productive or profitable venture, but the guys over at Redmond make sure that WP7 gets what other platforms will be envious of. The latest addition to the list of such things is the XBox Companion app. If you own an XBox 360, along with a Windows Phone, your gaming life  just got a whole lot better. XBox Companion is a free WP7 app that connects seamlessly with your XBox, allows you to do a bunch of cool stuff on the gaming console right from your phone!

The app has been eagerly anticipated by gamers all over the world, and it certainly does not disappoint. After you have downloaded the app on your WP7, just launch it and make sure you are signed in on both devices with the same Windows Live account. Companion will automatically detect the XBox console and connect to it. Once that is done, you can control just about every aspect of the XBox with Companion. The app doesn’t exactly act like a wireless controller for your XBox; it’s something entirely different.

If you are a fan of WP7’s rather neat Marketplace, then you will be pleasantly surprised to see that you can now browse through the XBox 360 Marketplace from WP7 in a similar fashion. Not only that, if you have purchased an app using Companion, there is also the option to launch it within the console using the play on your console option. The biggest feature offered by Companion is the Play feature, which allows you to use your phone as a remote control for media on your XBox.

Apart from that, the app offers quite a few organizational features as well. The app lets you view additional information regarding the games (and other data) on your gaming console. It connects to the internet to fetch said content for whatever is currently being played on the console.

XBox Companion is available for free on the Windows Phone Marketplace. If you own an XBox 360 and an XBox LIVE account, it is a must-have.
