Ok I use it as an extra controller and to check messages. It can have trouble connecting and it would be better if it notified you of said messages.
Loving the app! - Suggestion I honestly love using this app, it makes everything faster and easily accessible. However, I feel like it would be cool to add a party feature, so that people who don't have mics for their xbox, can use the mics on their phone or in their headphones. I mean sure people could just go buy a mic for their xbox, but it would be cool to help people cut down on lag so that they don't have to handle the party and the games they play if they have poor wifi connections. They could just use phone data maybe.
Awesome and useful! I like this app, I can go to youtube and watch videos from there so I dont have to waste battery, and I can join my friends in bo 2 early, but i would like it if they made it available to play games with xbox 360 smartglass. Sure, it would be hard playing extreme games, but it would be worth it. You know, maybe use flat joysticks in the middle and lb rb rt lt buttons on top! It would be perfect! Over all, I give it 4.5 stars, rounding up.
Microsoft needs to update this app Why even make it if you're not going to update it? We know you want us to buy an Xbox One, but some of us still like the 360. The swiping threshold is WAY to high for swiping between screens, you have to go across the entire screen. Also, messages don't automatically refresh, you have to reopen the app to receive new ones! If anything, this poor service motivates me to get a PS4, or better yet: a PC
It sorta works So the app works fairly well, my phone connects no problem, but one issue I am having is when I go to tap the "A" button on the screen it doesn't work consistently or it won't register that I have actually tapped it. Another problem I'm having is when I am on YouTube the keyboard will not pull up. Yet it works for messaging. Just wish it was a consistent app. Other then that I enjoy not having to use my controller all the time. Especially for Netflix and YouTube when I'm on a homework binge.
LOVE IT! my paddle broke and I was in the middle of watching a episode on NetFlix and I found this. This is awesome! now I can give my son back his paddle or buy him a new one. I also had my son down load this and we send messages to each other. I just am trying to find out if he can play his Xbox games with this?
