    It works fine if sideloaded apparently. I sideloaded it on my Asus transformer and it works fine.

    Picked this up just now. Seems utterly pointless IMO. Slower than my joypad as it has to go through the network. I've yet to see anything integrate into to a game though.

    Anyone used it with the Kindle Fire? Just wondered if it's available, what with it not using the Google Play store.

    Not available on the Amazon app store. Think I'm going to have to root it.

    you can use it to send and answer messages while playing something on the 360, thats worth it alone just for that.

    Not sure you can sideload a Fire without rooting though.

    You just need to grab a app installer on the amazon store and you can install all the APKs you want

    So at the moment it's no better than one of those watches you could get when you were a kid that controlled a VCR? School videos were a bit of laugh if someone had one of those.

    There is a watch that controls VCRs? Now that is cool!

    You never had one of these? :D

    I'm guessing this is a more modern version.

    I'm confused by the SmartGlass app...let me explain...

    I received a notification on my HTC One M8 via SmartGlass that one of my Xbox One Friends had sent me a message so I clicked on the notification and it opened SmartGlass. However, I had to click on Sign In and after a few seconds of spinning-whurly cursor-thingie action I received an Outlook.com login screen where I had to re-enter my email address and password (both fields were blank)!

    Why?

    If the SmartGlass app is running and informing me of messages sent to my Xbox One then it MUST already be signed into my account on my phone, right? Why do I then have to re-enter all my details again into the app to read the message? It makes no sense to me at all. :confused:

    In fact, I've noticed this with many Microsoft apps, including Outlook.com, on my iPads, smartphone and even Windows 8 where I have to repeatedly enter my email address and password to access Facebook, SmartGlass and so on.

    Why don't Microsoft apps remember at least the email adress? Why can't they stay signed in? Why do I have to tediously re-enter both my email address and password repeatedly to access these apps?

    They do on iOS too.

    The reason you can get notifications without being signed in is that they are pushed from the server. This push doesn't require authentication as you are already registered for them - it uses a device Id instead. Microsoft apps also have a habit of turfing you out every now and again on android as it's not the most secure platform all things told.
