Smart Glass???

Has anyone tried smartglass with WP7 for horizon yet. There should be a map but the only thing that i see is: "not available"

Device: HTC Radar (WP7 with latest update)

Smartglass just came out for Android today. It's pretty cool. Not sure about iOS.

Yes I know it sucks that the smart glass is not working straight out of the box but c'mon guys.. this is something xbox has never done, I would expect some hiccups ( just like with anything else) give it a little bit and I'm sure they will get their shit together

I'm shocked it's not exclusive to wp7 and the new tablet / keyboard oddity that ms is releasing soon. I have an iphone4s and an ipad3 simply because I've been buying apps since the original iPhone and it would be kind of silly to switch to android or wp7 at this point.

Just out of curiosity, which is the best of the wp7's? I have a family plan through AT&T with my wife and I can add another phone for $7 a month and just use it on wifi or share my wife's / ipad 4gb data plan...I have the old grandfathered in unlimited data on my iPhone that they don't offer anymore, so I'm definitely sticking with ios...as much as a want a Samsung GS3, lol.

You only make something exclusive if it will help sell something for you. Smart Glass won't sell phones and tablets, so it makes no sense to make it exclusive.

Not the same thing. Well, at least, not yet.

That's the right app, but they haven't updated it yet to support SmartGlass, which lets you interact with games. Right now, it has some basic Dashboard navigation stuff, and video controls, which it has done for months now.

You'll see the difference when the app gets updated.

That said, the Forza: Horizon stuff, not that exciting. I tried it out with Windows 8.

I must be missing a page or something in the app, I heard the interaction with horizon was a map, but when I loaded it up with the app on my phone I'm not seeing anything other than the basic remote stuff.

It's actually a really cool concept. Now if only Microsoft can optimize it right.. But if they do I think it will turn out quiet well.

Not sure if its a "can" or not maybe they want everyone to buy win 8 computers, tablets and phones. With money$oft it wouldn't surprise me.

Yes Microsoft is greedy but what big cooperation isn't..... And if they wanted you to buy windows everything they wouldn't of released it for the iPhone or android. And now you can get achievements via iOS.... You can run smart glass with pretty much any tablet or phone..

Yeah i can run smartglass but without the ingame support its basically useless. My tablet is a much better browser and my remote navigates the dashboard just fine when im too lazy to grab a controller. Game interaction was the one feature I wanted. And the video swapping but apparently doesnt work or atleast with netflix browser swap does but its a meh experiance at best.

Well there's your first problem your controller should ALWAYS be next to you... Lol and give it a couple more weeks. You gotta remember Microsoft isn't the fastest when it comes to patches, ya gotta give them time.
