After a rather long delay the BB-8 app for Windows Phone is now finally in the store.  The Battery SuperSaver folk have posted the above video demonstrating the popular toy in action, being controlled by a Lumia 950 XL.

The BB-8 app for Windows Phone features:

  • Drive: Slide your finger on the driving pad to guide your Droid. BB-8 will go wherever you point and hold, and he’ll even react to collisions.
  • Patrol: Tap into Patrol to send BB-8 off on his own. His autonomous behavior allows him to move around, get familiar with your space, and investigate the surroundings.
  • Holographic Messaging: No Droid is complete without holographic messaging. Now you can make your own thanks to BB-8. Record a video and BB-8 will transform it into a virtual hologram.

The free app can be found in the Windows Store here and the Sphero BB-8 Droid can be found at Amazon here.
