Following up on a recent profile-boosting Xbox 360 dashboard update, Xbox Live Indie Games developers will soon receive another source of exposure courtesy of an independently-produced Windows Phone 7 app.

XBLIG Companion scrapes release data from and compiles recommendations from XBLIG-centric sites, allowing users to easily access indie titles using a convenient, comprehensive search tool. Xbox Live Marketplace links can also be directly accessed, allowing users to purchase games and queue up downloads remotely.

The app is now being beta-tested, though a release date has not been announced. Developer Casey Young notes that iOS and Android ports are "not only doable, but most likely will happen."
