What's New in Version 2.7
Good app for Xbox Users
This app is convenient. What I mean by that is now you can message faster by using your iPod's keyboard instead of the controller to send messages. I can check my achievements too. Rarely some games on Xbox uses this app too! The avatar is nice to have, including playing any props that it has been chosen.(Shake your iPhone or iPod to see your avatar fall!)
The downside of this app is that you have to manually refresh it. What I mean is that you have to press on the refresh button to see changes, messages, and the achievement scores. I wouldn't know if someone messaged me if I didn't refresh! And not that much games uses this app, and if they do it is rarely! Sometimes you can't send a message just because you're on it for too long! And the character limit is a bit too low, also.(How much letters can be in a message.) And this app is a bit slow if you're using iOS 5, but it is still useable. It would be nice to get notifications for this app if I get something.
Overall it is a good app with issues of refreshing and messaging your messages and other issues too.
Useful if you're an extra chill person.
I've never tried anything like this before...simply, because of other peoples comments and reviews which made me a bit skeptical about downloading the app. I bit the bullet and completed the download. Email info, verification codes-all relevancy and very short ad also very protective. Long story short, this app is pretty cool especially for a first-timer haha... Download it; it's not a hassle, it's fun to use, and you can basically do everything with your phone as you would with the controller but future references, make sure to turn on your smart glass option in your console settings under remote control. Have fun, xboxers😌
Great IDEA could be WAY BETTER
I love the ability to connect with my Friends who don't have phones, and a few things I would change would be that I would like notifications for when my gf sends me messages and would like to not have to manually refresh when I'm talking to her. That would be a awesome improvement thanks! One other improvement I could think of would be to be able to bypass the connecting to Xbox 360 part of the app load up because I don't use this for anything but messages and I have slow internet so it would be nice to be able to skip the "connecting to Xbox 360" part. Thanks Microsoft for making this great app!
