The free Xbox app turns your standard media center into an interactive smart TV by weaving mobile devices into the user experience.
The "get excited" consumer-friendly part? SmartGlass is designed to work with all tablets and phones, not just Windows mobile. Use an iOS, Android, or Windows device to access additional SmartGlass companion content on a TV show — a list of the show's cast, for example — while you watch the most recent episode and control the Xbox itself by using the phone or tablet as a remote. Switch from viewing movies and TV to gaming, and the additional SmartGlass-powered device becomes a secondary controller.
