Xbox SmartGlass is an application that, once installed on an Android device, will improve your Xbox 360 experience through a set of exclusive features which can be accessed directly from your cell phone screen.
The application can be used to easily browse Xbox 360 menus, or to type with the phone’s keyboard instead of the cumbersome console controller.
Another interesting feature is that you can use the application like a remote control and pause, play, fast forward and adjust the volume of any video or song playing on the console.
This app allows you to keep wired to your XBOX Live community. There’s no need anymore to have XBOX joypad to manage you account and talk to you friends.
From XBOX Live mobile you will be able to edit your 3D avatar as if you were at home, message your XBOX Live friends, track and compare your achievements and rankings and check out Spotlight news.
It’s been set in Metro layout (Windows-like): lateral swipe, minimalism and text predominance. User-friendly interface. In addition, it runs smoothly, fluent transitions, no lag noticed. We’re missing though some features like using our device as remote control for our XBOX360 or any other kind of device integration.
Anyway, the app is really useful and many users were expecting it. It isn't disappointing but should be enhanced in some regards. "Message your XBOX360 friends" is one of its best features. This way you won't miss any online meeting. Highly recommended.
