so my Xbox app has just started not working. At first I thought I was my internet, but my internet was working just fine. Whenever I open the app (sometimes I have to download it and then delete it because I dont want my mom going through my Xbox stuff lol) and it will take me to the sign in screen. My email is already in the system so all I have to do is hit continue, but it keeps taking me back to the sign in or set up console screen. At the bottom it will say “something went wrong” I’ve deleted the app and reinstalled it, but its still doing it. I don’t know what’s happening and I would be happy to get a response in the next 5 hours (but I’ll update if it starts working) other than that, this app is great! So much easier to use than console, especially since I usually just like talking to people on there! 5 stars, but please help with the problem
(Btw offset#3570 is my Xbox game tag if that helps)
UPDATE: it’s working now !!!
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😐😬
Good concept, but incredibly broken.
The Xbox app is amazing the first time you see it. You can access you account on the go and do so many things. However, the app’s downfalls become apparent very soon. First of all, you need a wifi connection to access the app, it will not work with cellular data. So, the whole aspect of xbox on the go is completely thrown out of the window. Secondly, you’ll be very luck if you can actually use the app. For at least one week out of the month the app just doesn’t work. You try to launch it, but you are met with either a blank green screen or a n infinite loading wheel. I’ve tried restarting, redownloading, and even costumer support, but nothing can fix it. Over time it will just fix itself and one day you’ll try to launch the app and it will just work for no reason just as suddenly as it stopped working. My final issue it the built in keyboard. Xbox has a wonderful system that detects the keyboard on your xbox and allows you to type on your phone. This is great for multiplayer games with a chat system. However, like the app itself this feature is very spotty. Sometimes the keyboard on the app will just stop popping up and it won’t ever pop up for the next week to month. Then it will just magically fix itself again. There are also tons of little bugs that litter that app that at sometimes, makes the app completely unusable. The Xbox app definitely doesn’t deserver the 4.7 out of 5 that it currently has.
