Convenient - Update
I love this app! It has all the essentials for an on the go gamer. There's only one small issue that I've noticed and compared to the rest of the amazing features, it's a relatively small gripe.
Nonetheless, the messaging system within the app works wonderfully but it also contains the only thing that bugs me. It's very time consuming to cleanup or delete old messages. Having to slide left and delete them all individually takes quite a while if you receive messages frequently. Also the difference in text color between a new message and a message marked as "read" is so subtle that it becomes difficult to locate unread messages when trying to cleanup notifications.
Install a feature that will let the user select multiple messages at a time and delete them or mark as read.
Change the color of the font on new messages and read messages to something more drastic. Perhaps a green text for new messages and white text for read messages.
Overall, as I stated in the beginning, I love this app! And I believe updating the messaging system will only increase my enjoyment and ease of use for everyone.
PS - I pre-installed Destiny 2 with this app and I'm waiting patiently to regain my Light when the clock hits midnight! Xbox, the best place to play Destiny 2 hands down! Console exclusives don't hold a candle to our community. Find me in the EDZ, guardians. Gamer tag: Surelok
I love the Xbox app and had no issues so far, but nowadays it seems as if when I log out and log into my other account everything gets messed up. Whether it's me getting messages from one account when I'm on the other, or it refuses to fully log into the account forcing me to close the app and re-log in.
Another thing is that no matter if I'm on wifi or on my data, it can't show any of the sections: friends, clubs, etc. Even when I refresh it a bunch of times, close the app or login back in. It will just say "try again later", so I'm not sure if it's just on my end or what. But it's been getting really annoying seeing that.
Other than than great app but it would be better if I knew why these issues keep happening.
Every time I'm at work, school, party, and I want to get distracted I can rely on the app to do so, weather it is to see a previously recorded clip and show it to my friends, or just to see what my friends on Xbox are doing before I get to my actual Xbox. I can read messages right from my phone and reply much quicker. This app is awesome. Also, did I mention that you can use this app as a remote control, so I don't even have to use the Xbox controller to watch Netflix or tv. This app goes above and beyond your expectations. Is even better on your laptop(you can join parties on your laptop. Amazing)
