A Sainsbury's app?

When are we going to get Skype integrated into the Dash so I can use my kinect to talk to the reles from my sofa?

Seems like a total no-brainer to move the kinect chat thing and messenger support over to skype since MS bought it?

I've often sat in front of my Xbox wondering why I couldn't access Sainsbury's via an app and this has been a major topic amongst many online gaming forums for years.

Thankfully Microsoft have listened to all the rabid Sainsburys fanboi's and given them exactly what they wanted.

I think this rightfully confirms Microsoft as the leading platform for hardcore gamers.

Sarcasm is a hard thing to pick up on over the internet :wink: .

At the end of the day, these are apps that you choose to download or not, I have a Morrison's and Asda app on my phone, does this render me uncool (dont answer that!).

If I can do my home shopping though the Xbox and its simpler and more intuitive than my phone, then its a good thing. Add in Fightbox, GameTrailers, IndieFlix, Livesport.tv, Machinima, Deezer, CrunchyRoll, Napster, Sainsbury, Karaoke and SkyDrive and there's pretty much something for everyone there.

Just more clutter for the dash in my opinion. I can understand this will be useful for a lot of people but not for me personally.

But you only download the ones you want and then they only appear in the Apps section or you can Pin your favourites or go into your most recent?

I dont get this clutter chatter?

Disappointing that Vimeo is only coming to the States, hopefully it won't take long to open up here in the UK and I'll finally be able to watch DFA documentary on my TV without having to fork out for wildly expensive cables and adapters from Apple or dodgy third party software!

Of the limited Apps available to myself in the UK, I wonder how many of them are totally FREE and useful?

Personally I don't really use many of the FREE Apps (like iPlayer, YouTube etc) and will NOT pay for a Subscription Service (on top of the Xbox Live Subscription Service and Sky HD (Full Package so have all the movie channels) so I am not terribly excited by this list!

Looking forward to a few of these. Does anyone know of a way to trick the 360 into thinking it's in Spain?

That's okay then. I saw it being lots of tiny boxes full of different apps and s**t (like Windows 8) all over the dash.

They're launching a video streaming service, similar to Blinkbox, which is owned by Tesco.

Although yes, my first thought was using Kinect to pick up virtual food from virtual shelves.
