This App has been very useful for my household. Because of my Xbox setup. I have a full racing rig in my bedroom and sometimes I just want sit back on the couch and play something other than racing games and now it’s possible thanks to this app. setup is quick and the app is easy to use. I recommend using medium graphics settings on the iPad. And you will have very minimal lag or glitches. If you have decent WiFi speeds. The price of this App may seem expensive but the quality shows. And less we forgot we are talking about using our Apple devices to play our Xbox. So of course there will be an Apple tax lol.
So the app works great.
I'll give some pros and cons here at the beginning with details below.
•Works well on even spotty wifi
•Small amounts of lag/stuttering on wifi, some of it caused by loading and resuming the game
•Works better then the Xbox App on Win10 laptop (for me)
•Best played on games that don't require quick reactions
•Have to unplug my Xbox and manually connect to the app everytime I use it
They recommend having your Xbox hooked up with an Ethernet cable but it's works fine on wireless.
Because of issues such as spotty signal connections and ok speeds (10mbps up/down) the stream will sometimes stutter, pause or lose connection.
Most of those though are when the game is loading, I resume the game after pausing and when certain types of cut scenes play.
I'm sure if I was wired or had better wifi these issues would be barely noticeable.
There is some lag, so I'm mainly playing turn based games.
I did play a single player shooter for a bit and it was okay. A little difficult to aim and move but was doing alright.
For some reason though this is working way better on my iPad Air 2 then my crappy laptop. Maybe it's because the iPad is newer and the laptop is breaking down but I'm not sure.
I will say though that the app almost never see my Xbox, so I have to manually put in the IP address to find it. Even then though I have to unplug my Xbox every time I want to use the app.
Either way I would recommend getting this app.
I read a few concerning comments about this not working for some, or lagging. I have a 75dl/10ul type connection and a solid AC1900 router with my xbox plugged directly into the router via ethernet. I have very little to no lag when using an Xbox controller near my console. I wanted an extra screen for when the family room was occupied and this has been perfect for use with my iPad. Been playing Witcher 3 with no problems.
Main gripes are that I can’t switch apps at all without this disconnecting and having to reconnect (usually to a white screen; pressing xbox button usually clears this), there isn’t an option to display battery life (which it goes through quite steadily while playing games), and you have to re-register a console with each individual device you want to use (e.g. iPads, iPhones). It’s close to a perfect streaming solution for xbox and iOS.
Seemed a bit pricey for an app, but one days worth of use was worth it alone.
With Family Sharing set up, up to six family members can use this app.
