#NerdGirls On The Go: Xbox Live iOS App

To go along with the sweeping changes Microsoft implimented on Xbox Live yesterday, the company has released an iOS companion app that allows you to keep track of your friends, send messages, update your profile and gaze longingly at your gamerscore while you count the hours until you can return to your 360. The Xbox Live app is free.  Here’s the app store link.

If you’re a Windows 7 Phone user, there’s love for you, too. The Xbox Companion for Windows Phone 7 is live as of yesterday, and that application lets you do everything the iPhone version does, but also lets you control content from your Windows phone. Amazing…and also, free.

Created by Activision Publishing, Inc., the $6.99 app is re-imagined for tablets and smartphones. Achievements and point-multipliers are included in the iOS version. Call of Duty: Black Ops Zombies encourages group game play, up to four players can help smash the zombies together using a brand new feature called Voice Chat. This allows real-time communication with your fellow zombie-slayers.

Call of Duty: Black Ops Zombies includes a “Dead-Ops Arcade” mode. To unlock this special mode you must find four missing coins in the game’s menu. Once you do, you’ll unlock 50 levels with full Game Center leaderboard support and more.

#NerdGirls on the Go: Fandango’s Mobile Tickets

Many airlines have already done away with paper tickets and now one of the largest sellers of movie tickets is finally making the digital leap. After almost two years of development and smaller test runs, Fandango‘s Mobile Ticket initiative begins its major roll out this weekend at select Regal Cinemas with the release of The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn Part 1. People who buy tickets online (not just for Twilight, for any movie) can have a message sent to their phone with a barcode that theaters scan, allowing people to skip lines at ticket booths and kiosks. Find out which theaters are first adopting this after the jump.

The full theater list, which can be viewed by clicking here, features theaters in Atlanta, Chicago, Denver, Honolulu, Knoxville, Tenn., Lexington, Ky., Los Angeles, Nashville, Tenn., New York, Philadelphia, Portland, Ore., San Diego, San Francisco and Seattle.
