Kinectimals for iOS released, Microsoft getting serious with iOS

I know what you're thinking: Microsoft released a game for Apple's iOS platform, so the apocalypse must be nigh. 

I don't think that's the case, but regardless, Microsoft today released a couple more apps on the App Store, including Kinectimals, originally a Microsoft platform exclusive. Also released was a Skydrive client, allowing users to manage files in a very effective way.

I never use Hotmail, but Skydrive is something I use a few times a week, so I'll be taking advantage of that app, too. I think the biggest news here, though, is the fact that Microsoft, an enormous player in the gaming space, released a game for Apple products. Apple's kind of a major player in gaming, as well, so at first glance, it just seems odd for Microsoft to do such a thing. 

I think that it's all going to turn out to be a major push by Microsoft to drive its gaming business even farther ahead of the competition. Microsoft is, after all, a software company; most of its hardware endeavours never seem to turn out well, with the exception of the Xbox. But Windows, Microsoft Office, and the games it releases are always big hits. I think that Microsoft is just taking a page from Sega and will slowly creep out of the hardware market but continue to make awesome games. 

Oh, and I did buy Kinectimals. My leopard is named Gerald.
