Great but has some bugs
I really really like smartglass. It's interconnected with Microsoft products and for the most part works pretty well. On the other hand, there are definitely some issues. Data on the console and data on the game are not always synced. You may have deleted a msg on console but that same msg may appear unread on the app. The remote function is iffy at best. Sometimes it will connect and sometimes it tells you to turn features on in the settings of your console. Not only that, the setting feature that it directs you to does not exist. Well it exist, but it is not setup to change device settings. And yes I am on the same network, in case you were asking yourself that question. The app also crashes ALOT. Leaving the app running in the background of my iPhone 6+ is a sure way to an app crash around the second or third reopen without clearing running apps. Regardless of these minor hiccups in functionality and usability, the Xbox app is likely my top 3 favorite apps. It's fast. It's responsive. It's involved. Furthermore, does exactly what I want it to do and that is to connect with online friends, family and game community. The bugs, to say the least, are neck and neck to tie last place on a long list of "Things that give me a headache each day." I'm sure an entry level software engineer could fix the lows with some testing. Later. And give me a job lol😐😬
Great app... just a suggestion.
I love using this app when i am away from home to view clips, read and respond to messages but there is one thing i believe would be an amazing addition to the app. We all know the xbox one was designed to be the ultimate home console for both games an media, but how about security? I know the xbox ones kinnect was discontinued however it could regain some popularity with the ability to view what the kinnect sees when you are away from home. I just recently adopted a puppy and currently am looking into security cameras for the house so i can check up on my boy when im away from home. It would be an amazing feature to be able to open the app and see whats going on in my livingroom. I doubt this idea would be implemented however if it was, i believe a lot of people will want to get their hands on the kinnect again. Aside from my suggestion, i love the app and if this idea is considered and applied, i would change my rating from 4 stars to 5.
Does some things reliably; some things rarely.
You can always see who’s online from your friends list, and what they’re playing. Messaging works well too.
However; the ONE THING the app is absolutely advantageous over a controller for accessing your console with - does not work consistently. The on screen keyboard, lets you type quickly on your phone - much faster than using a controller. When it works, this feature is extremely convenient, letting you input text to your Xbox or games in time spans you never could without the app. But good freakn’ luck getting the keyboard on the app to come up when you have an on-screen keyboard on your console. It’ll work sometimes, and other times you can pull up the keyboard on your Xbox again and again and again - to have the app do nothing. Which, needless to say - is very frustrating. To have such a convenient feature work intermittently and be completely unusable at other times is maddening. If that singular function worked reliably, I would say this is a magnificent app. But right now; it just doesn’t.
