Peek A Boo App?

I like the way I can connect this app to my Xbox 360 and watch shows. But when I have to reinstall the app because it magically disappears on my comp and sends me to the app store it's frustrating. Works for a while then reinstall? Sounds like Peek A Boo to me. And before anyone asks, no it had not been uninstalled by myself or anyone else as I am the comp admin. So please do something to fix this glitch please? Thank you.

I think it is awesome because you get to check stuff like your messages, your account, and your achievements from a laptop or a tablet and it is very useful.

Very Useful

An excellent application, have used it many times. What I don't like, however, is the fact that you can't get a whole controller scheme in the program. If any devs are reading, please implement this feature. Still great, must-download.

Go with sony... for real

Someone with no brain decided to create this app to AUTO CREATE A GAMERTAG under my Microsoft account. Another brainless person decided to make it so that nothing can be done once this happens, I lose all of my online purchases trying to switch to a gamertag I already have. Read the other reviews just like mine, Microsoft can care less about you. I have both ps3 and xbox360, and have contemplated which console for my upgrade, and this just set it in stone - sony. I've had a live account over 10 years, since before there was a Microsoft account. My new pc I made a Microsoft account without a gamertag initially, which is different than my live account email and gamertag. Spoke with some manager on support who informed me nothing can be done with adding my gamertag to this without losing all of my e-purchases under my live account. I didn't screw up, you guys did, and don't want to make it right. I have recorded my call for quality just like you do Microsoft, no more hiding.

Why put an option to play the game there when you cant

the options blank no matter what, its ridiculous. the app is auto install which is pretty annoying. and the app wont really let me play my games with my computer which is what I wanted it for. I have a chromecast to watch tv and that stuff on.

Will not work if you use windows 10 and have an Xbox 36

This app does not work if you have an Xbox 360 and are running windows 10. Gives you an option to connect a console but has to be Xbox one then refuses to recognize console and offers a bar to punch in IP address to link your console but then wont let you click the connect button. Only reason that this got one star is because you have to give at least one.

Automatic install? Do not appreciate.

I knew of this apps existence, but I do not appreciate it auto installing on my system. I did not request it. but I am guessing that it installed because of the Xbox 360 that happens to be on the same network. I already had this installed on another device that I actually wanted on. This was a dirtbag move with the auto install. That said, It gets a one star bump up because it is a useful app for those with Xbox 360s but it lost the others for the automatic install. Screw you Microsoft.

its nice not to have to always know where the controller is when watching media but it needs more game support.

Could be much better.

The features it currently have are nice and all but it needs more. Like an option to allow you to play your 360 games from your pc.
