    An unofficial developer has released an application for the gaming community called XfMobile. The purpose of this application is to provide a mobile interface of Xfire for iPhone and Android phone users. A full list of features are below:

    - Source

    I've downloaded this app on my iPod touch and tested it. It's pretty solid for a development-stage app. The chat system is pretty good, sends really quick, except that the interface is average. You have the ability to change your username and status, and you see your full buddy list and even see your offline friends. You also have the ability to see what game your friends are playing. If you click the blue arrow on a friend's profile name, you can chose to look at their profile or view their screenshots. The profile view is just like opening their profile page in Safari, except that it loads inside the app. The screenshots applet is pretty sick. It's like Facebook's photo viewing system on the iPhone. (You cannot comment unfortunately) The screenshots show up in great quality and you can choose screenshots from the games menu. Below are some screenshots of the app. (Credit to me for pictures)

    Scoring
    Features: 3.5/5​
    • XfMobile is basically only an Xfire chat app with a few added features. This is why it gets a 3.5 out of 5.
    GUI: 4/5​
    • This app has a crisp display but the chat interface needs work. The keyboard blocks most of the chat window, so the ability to hide the keyboard would be a nice additive.
    Audio: 5/5​
    • There are only a few sounds in this app, but they sound professionally made. The chat sounds and login/logout sounds are excellently presented.
    Reuse Value: 2.5/5​
    • The reason for the low score is that it depends all on the person. I personally do not use Xfire that much. There, I would only really use this when I need to get a hold of someone. For other people, they would probably use this everyday.
    Value for Money: 5/5​
    • This app deserves a 5 out of 5 for this category because it is worth getting if you're an avid or casual Xfire user, and it's free!
    Overall: 4/5​
    • At the end of the day, this app is pretty well made. This will surely please Xfire users among the mobile community.
