New XBL iPhone App. Should It Be Free?

You may remember that a couple of years ago at E3, Microsoft claimed that we would all be able to log into Xbox Live from mobile devices. Well we have all moved a bit closer to that reality with the recent release of an unofficial XBL app for the iPhone, “360 live“. Compared to previous attempts at a remote XBL application, this one has more features e.g. 360 Live will automatically retrieve your friends list when you log into your XBL account, lets you edit your Gamer Profile and even lets you send and receive messages over XBL.

It comes with a price tag of $1.99 but around a year ago Microsoft issued a policy stating that any XBL app should be free , so the question now is whether we will see this application disappear altogether or will it be free in the (near) future?
