Ever wonder what your XBL friends are doing? This app will keep you updated so you can jump into the game!
This is an application I wrote born out of the frustrations of trying to see what my friends were doing on the Xbox Live network. While the Microsoft website offers the ability to do this, I find it too cumbersome and flash-heavy just for a simple quick 'check up'.
So I took it on myself to whip up a quick application that takes its inspiration from Instant Messaging clients, using the power of Growl to give quick notifications of the status of given gamertags.
It uses simple keyboard shortcuts (Add gamertag/Remove gamertag/Refresh status) to operate the application and it refreshes automatically every N minutes (default is 5 minutes) to give you a reasonably up to date picture of what your chosen gamertags are up to.
Feel free to suggest any improvements.
