What Xbox 360 SmartGlass Is

Xbox 360 SmartGlass is an application that integrates Xbox 360 console with mobile devices like iPhones, iPads, iPods touch, Windows phones, and Google Android gadgets. Basically, these devices act as a second screen for the Xbox which makes it easy for you to control and interact better with your console.

Xbox 360 SmartGlass has amazing features. First and foremost, you can use this tool to navigate your Xbox console by simply swiping and tapping. Apart from this, it is possible to type to your console by using your phone’s keyboard. The app is also useful for browsing the internet and playing videos. In addition to this, it has a search catalog that makes it easier for you to find music, games, and videos. Last but not least, you can use it to message your friends and compare your achievements.  This app is useful to anyone who owns an Xbox 360 console, and they would like to take the fun to a new level. I would rate the features at a 10/10.

Interface

This Windows Store, App Store and Google Play app for Xbox console has a very polished interface. There are five screens in total. The first screen is the home screen which shows what you are currently playing and below it, there is a list of apps. If you click on any of them, they pop up replacing the home screen. This straightforwardness makes the app very user-friendly. I really like the interface. Therefore, I would rate it at a 10/10.

Performance and Usability

Xbox 360 SmartGlass is very convenient and easy to use the app. I haven’t had any performance issues while using the Android app. However, I have noticed that the search feature is not responsive and the app uses up a lot of battery power. Nonetheless, I am confident that the issues will be fixed soon because the developers have proved their commitment to making the app better by updating it frequently. For instance, in the latest version, they have fixed bug issues. Generally, I would rate the app’s performance at an 8.5/10.

Xbox 360 SmartGlass is an app for all Android devices (running on Android 4.0 and up), iDevices (iOS 5.0 and up is required) and Windows phones (Windows 10 Mobile or Windows Phone 8.1 or Windows Phone 8 is needed). I don’t have to worry about losing access to the app when I change my phone. Due to this, I would rate it at a 10/10.

Verdict

Xbox 360 SmartGlass provides a great way to interact with Xbox 360 console. It has a neat interface, amazing features and it is very easy to use.
