Halo Waypoint app: the perfect Halo companion

Innovation is the centerpoint of all Android development. As a community, we are glad to see new applications of ideas or concepts that really broaden the envelope of growth with respect to the Android platform. Well, Microsoft has done just that with their release of Halo Waypoint. Basically, it is a multiplayer companion for use while you are gaming in the world of Halo on your Xbox 360.

The app itself is full of features. Halo ATLAS (Assisted Tactical Assault System) is one of the most immersive multiplayer companions available: it offers live, overhead views of multiplayer maps with weapon, vehicle, health pack, and player locations. This offers maps of all the original maps including all maps available as downloadable content. Essentially, ATLAS is your state-of-the-art, in-game GPS system. Of course, it also shows you stats on your current  round and on your account as a whole. In addition, it allows you to stay in contact with other Halo players that have been added to your friends list on Xbox LIVE at all times.
