Default Xbox SmartGlass

Not sure if this thread should be here or on the Xbox board, but I'll put it here for now. If anyone doesn't remember this crap from E3, it's basically Microsoft's half assed answer to the Wii U. You use whatever mobile device you currently own that can run the software to interface with your Xbox. I'm making the thread now because it's apparently just been added to Android. No iOS support until next year, it sounds like.

Here's a video of how it's supposed to work:

Sounds like something I'll try out and forget exists to me honestly.

The movie playback I might use as a work around for files that the xbox won't play on it's own though.

I will probably use this for music when it comes to iOS next year.

This seems a bit early I thought this was going to be Windows 8 exclusive for a bit.

I do notice you need to have an ICS device to install it.

Played with this a little.

From what I gather it's pretty much just a fancy remote, can't seem to get videos to work at all.

Yep, which LG said my phone was going to be, but then backed off on that.

Blame T-Mobile for that. The MyTouch 4G Slide is also not getting ICS despite being just as good as the G2X. Plus the foreign variants of it got ICS.
