Once a Windows Phone exclusive, Kinectimals is now available to download for iOS users
We know what you’re really like, deep down inside, that is. Now don’t go and start denying it, but we all know that many of you truly adore cute and cuddly animals that you can control on your smartphone. Well, if you’ve been playing Kinectimals for Windows Phone, you’re already one step ahead of most smartphone users.

Interestingly, the once exclusive game for Windows Phone is surprisingly moving into a different platform – and in this case, it’s now being made available to iOS users! On the surface, the gameplay for iOS doesn’t differ to the one found with its Windows Phone counterpart, though, it’s sporting a $2.99 price point. On top of that, this iOS version lacks the integration of achievements and full functionality of online gaming service that the Windows Phone version offers.

Nevertheless, it’s nice to see Microsoft branching out and extending the game’s reach to a totally new audience, especially one that’s considered to be the opposition. Even better, it gives Microsoft the chance to show iOS users a small sampling of what the Windows Phone platform has to offer – like its Metro UI implementation.

In any event, if you have a soft spot for cute and cuddly wild animals, you ought to check out Kinectimals for iOS – just make sure to manage your time playing it!

First the X-Box Live app, now this. Looks like Microsoft is getting a little bit more cozy with Apple. Probably to try to reduce the dominance of Android.

Yes. It shows that they fear Android.

Or, they could just be trying to convert iOS users to the Microsoft side (much more likely).

Or, they just didn't want to develop and test for a fragmented OS like Android, which can consume significant resources (also likely).
