App meme

There’s an app for that seems to be the common mantra these days. No matter what you want, you can find an application that will do it on your tablet or phone. However, consoles are also trying to compete in the app world, and Microsoft has just announced some new additions.

Launching more than 45 apps by the end of the holiday season, those making use of Xbox One will get a new and enriched experience. Here is Major Nelson explaining why twitter on Xbox One will be cool:

While it does seem nice to be able to follow hashtags and other social media things through the Xbox One, there’s just one thing I noticed here. The focus is on the TV integration – you can find your favourite TV show, see the hashtag for it and follow all the twitter whinging and moaning in real time. But what about the games that people might be playing and tweeting about? Isn’t that also part of the Xbox One experience? Is there twitter integration that would let people see the hashtags people are using while playing Watch Dogs or other games? As a gaming console, you’d expect them to maybe mention something about playing games.

Here is the full list of apps that are launching, as well as their launch countries. As you might notice, we’re missing out on most of the apps here in South Africa, although local Microsoft has assured us that they are looking to make an awesome South African Xbox experience as well.
