Getting my Nexus S on Monday when the 32GB goes up for sale. Good reviews so far, pretty excited about it.

Installed it, but really trying to figure out the point of it. Controller simply works better in all aspects.
End of line.

Fucking annoying it isn't compatible (yet) with the Nexus 7, even though that device is already up to 4.1.2.

I'm sure it'll be remedied shortly, but there's really no reason it shouldn't be out now.

Installed. Pretty interesting, but it really is just a gimmick. Not really necessary (yet). This app could become useful depending on what Microsoft does with it in the future. Right now it is just a toy to show to your friends.


Edit: Works on Galaxy S III in case anyone was wondering

If you're just navigating the dashboard then, yes, the SmartGlass app isn't all that it's cracked up to be. However, for the games that support it, it'll act as a second screen of information without having to go though the main screen to do so. Dance Central 3, for example, makes it a DJ for upcoming songs when played in Party mode and it acts as the always-on map & GPS for Forza Horizon.

Got the app on my phone but since it isn't officially available for my Transformer Infinity, I'm trying to sideload it first before I give Forza a shot with it. Rather be using a tablet than a phone for that type of functionality.

Should be compatible. See this review:

"Jonah Spade - October 26, 2012 - Asus Nexus 7 with version 1.0
Best remote for your Xbox
Wow, really impressed by this app. It has a lot more functionality than I thought. Any Xbox owner would be remiss without this app!"

^^^^ Weird. Just tried to download it via my PC and it says incompatible with my devices, and it doesn't show up in the Play store when I go there on my tablet. I'll try going to the link my PC hits through my tablet.

Edit - Nope, still nothing. No big deal, I can wait. If I get antsy I'm sure the APK is out there somewhere.

I'm guessing be a little more useful once some games start using it and apps are developed with it in mind. The best stuff for it won't look to "replace" anything, it'll suppliment stuff.

This app is actually very useful, especially when using the web browser. I'm actually using my Kindle Fire with Smart Glass right now. Being able to use my tablet as a mouse and keyboard is extremely useful. Can't complain at all. About to check out Forza Horizon with it now :)

Glad I got my 4.0 update for my Bionic yesterday even more so now. Really impressed with this so far. Just wish I had a tablet to get even better use out of it.

The apk is out for those of you with a Nexus 7, not sure if it's against the rules to link apks of free apps, but it should be easy enough to find.

Cool but too bad about the OS requirement - Samsung stopped supporting my phone right after i bought it so I'll never get ICS or higher.

Now I need to wait for MS to get their iPad app out so I can use that.

Do you have a custom ROM or tried side-loading it? The app works fine on my Kindle Fire with Jelly Bean installed but for some reason the My Xbox Live app doesn't.

Good move on Microsoft's part. Not enough people could take advantage of this cool feature because Windows Phones have such a small part of the market share.

This is good for everyone overall but pretty irksome for me since I got WP7 for all of the "exclusive Microsoft apps!!1!" that went to Android/iOs within the year. Oh well, at least I get Achievements for my phone games I guess.

This is a surprise! I thought this wasn't planned to release for Android until Spring next year.
