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.

Please read this review.

I wish you could chat through the mic on your laptop or computer or tablet etc... other than that it is good

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 ok

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.

What happened?

Used to work great, though it lacked anything really useful. Now it won't work at all. The better question is: Why isn't Microsoft fixing it? My controller just died and I need a remote!

this app connected one time on my laptop but mainly i have to do it on my phone which you guessed it...kills my battery

OK but Could Do More

What it does, it does well, but, truthfully, I don't really use it, because it does very little to nothing to enhance my use of the 360.
