The TA Investigations Team Are Recruiting
Hi all

I have an important message from the TA Investigations Manager:

Good day TrueAchievements users!

As you are likely aware, TrueAchievements has released its own app onto the Xbox One marketplace - creating a surge of new users. This wave of new users has added quite the backlog to our own investigations. With this in mind, we are looking to add a few new members to our team.

There are several main differences between this team and others on site. There is no staff badge. For several reasons, the identities of the Investigations Team are kept confidential. Because of the level of trust involved, the team is seeking mature applicants. Due to the nature of the work we do, we are seeking applicants that are very active site members.

If you are interested in applying to help protect the ratios on-site, please take a moment to fill out this application.

We will be accepting applications for 2 weeks - at which time the application will be closed.

Please note that we are not able to reply to each individual that applies. After the application window closes, the team will discuss the applicants. We may contact applicants to clarify responses as the team deliberates.

Thank you for your time and good luck to all that apply!
Good luck to everyone who applies!

TA Podcast: It's Rainin' Games!
Greetings, all.

Remember how back in September we promised, nee' swore, that we wouldn't wait so long between recording episodes of your favorite podcast (1).

Well, we've failed you. I've failed you. It could have been the distraction of awesome games coming out. It might have been the release of the AMAZING TrueAchievements App. It could be a classic case of too many cooks. Regardless, you've had to wait ENTIRELY too long for a mainline hit of the good stuff (2). We're here to make it all up to you though with a very special podcast. In this month's show, Rich takes time away from his birthday steak to chat us up about the latest with the TA App, Michelle tells us more about Disney Fantasia: Music Evolved (Xbox One), and (after we kick the big man out of the party), the two of us lament the woes of Destiny for the first (but probably not the last) time.

We're also hitting some of the major news stories over the past few weeks, chatting about holiday releases, and generally being cheeky monkeys since Rich left us in charge. WHEEEEEEEEEEEEEE!


As always, if you enjoy listening to us jabber while grinding out those Ascendant Shards and Engrams, subscribe in iTunes, give us a good rating, and take moment to write a quick review saying how we lower cholesterol, raise the roof, and tie your mother down.

If your brand new, massive iPhone is bent in your pocket and you're rejecting the almighty Apple in protest, you can catch up on all of the TA Podcasts here on the site or download them to the device of your choice here.

(1) - ...that is hosted on this website.
(2) - We know you've been itching for it.

Achievement Solutions

When you look at a game's achievements or challenges in the app, you'll see an icon next to the name if there's one or more associated solution. Clicking through to the achievement page then allows you to view the solutions, including any videos and images.

Gaming Sessions

Gaming sessions are hugely popular on TrueAchievements (we've run over 350,000!), and you can keep track of the sessions you've signed up for from within the app. You can also see who else is in the session, which achievements you are going for, and any other sessions for the game.

We all love our stats, right? We've brought many of the cooler stats we show on TA into the app, including gamer milestones, achievement score changes, game progress. And we made them animate too, because animated graphs are awesome.

Snapping and Voice Control

Because we want to make it easy for you to game while checking those solutions, the TrueAchievements App supports both snapping and voice control!

Official Xbox One Achievements App Integration

You can now search for achievement solutions directly from within the Official Achievements App - if you have the TrueAchievements App installed then you will see a Search TrueAchievements button that will launch the app straight into the solution page for that achievement.

The app is free to download and is supported by video adverts, unless you are a TrueAchievements Pro member - just as on the website, Pro members won't see any ads.


It wouldn't a TrueAchievements app without putting achievements in it, would it? You can see the achievement list here. We hope you have as much fun popping them as we had making them!
