Very useful! Love it
If you own an Xbox and have the ability to connect online then this app is simply a must have, no matter what it is you do online. Download it immediately! Think of this as a wireless keyboard/mouse. Think of it as a second screen to either search/get your next movie or show ready to play immediately after playing a game. Think of it as a messenger that allows you to keep in touch with Xbox live friends and maybe get a game session ready for later. Think of it as an extra remote control for when your Xbox controllers batteries are being charged and all you want to do is browse the web or check out what's in store online. Think of it as an easier way to record game clips without having to interrupt your game or anyone's conversation (a la kinect). Think of it as......well...you get the picture. This is an awesome companion app.
*I hope that some time in the near future we are able to specifically pick how long our game clip recordings can be using this app.
I couldn't live without this. I've been using this since I had a 360 and it only keeps improving and making me more happy. I use this on my Xbox One with both the iPhone and iPad. Only negatives are a few bugs(very rare) and only features I would like to add. I use my Xbox for everything(Movies, TV shows, Gaming) and this makes life so much better for anything other than gaming. However, by far the best feature in my opinion is messaging. Not only can you do this while gaming but it makes it a hundred times faster than using the controller(let's not forget to mention that you can connect a Bluetooth keyboard to your iPhone or iPad) The mere fact that I can mute my TV and turn the volume up and down is one of the many reasons I gave this 5 stars(haven't touched my TV Remote in months). The less controllers the better. Good job for once Microsoft(if you're the one that really put this out)
And it's free..... duh
Always in hand
As a gamer I love checking up on how I'm progressing and having this app allows me to track achievements just like I've always wanted. Not only that, it gives you challenges that are always changing. Rates you up against your friends, and more. You can watch videos from people playing the same game. And communicate with friends in a new way. No longer do you need to open up your screen just to reply to a friends message. Now you can click it and send one back on your mobile device as easy as a text message. Not to mention when your watching Netflix you're phone is now the remote. You don't have to turn on your controller just to pause because your girlfriend has to run to go pee. Everything runs smoothly and perfectly compliments your next gen system.
