Windows Phone app turns your tweets into Star Wars intro

Kinect Star Wars app makes your social feed that little bit nerdier

Give your social networking feeds a taste of a Galaxy far, far away with a new Star Wars app for Windows Phone

Microsoft has released a Kinect Star Wars app for Windows Phone and, although the gimmicky app has nothing really to do with the motion sensing Xbox game, it's still pretty cool.

Essentially, the Kinect Star Wars app for Windows Phone is just a social network feed aggregator, which brings together Twitter posts and Facebook status updates in the same way many free apps have done in the past.

However, there's one key difference. If you rotate your phone to a landscape view, this app makes your tweets move up the screen just like the iconic Star Wars intro crawls. On top of that John Williams' unforgettable Star Wars theme plays plays in the background. Nerdgasm!

Naturally, the app will also allow you to post to both your Twitter and Facebook feeds as well as view the latest goings on in your social circles (Sorry Google+ you're not aboard). So, if you feel like adding another galaxy to your Twittersphere, look no further.
