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!

never connects

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

Okay

Takes some time to connect but otherwise better then scrummaging for some old keyboard to plug into it

Won't Connect to Xbox 360

It recognizes the my xbox is on, and logged into the same account, but it just cant seem to connect to it. Other than the issue it has, it's a really cool app and fun to use, I just wish it can connect.

Not working

I was planning on trying out the app yesterday. However the app apparently does not like the Surface pro 3. I have tried everything from installing updates on the tablet and app, troubleshooting, restarting, uninstalling and reinstalling, even talking to both Xbox and Surface Support and no one has been able to give me a solution so far that makes the app work for my device! The only device that I have been able to get this app to work with is with my iPhone. So as long as you don't try and use a Surface you should be fine. This issue needs to be fixed.

Smart Is Right

I'm hooked on this app, Its fun, functional, and impresses my friends lol

Practical application

Could use some polishes/touch-ups but overall makes using the Xbox through the tablet a lot more easier and convenient.

Needs improvement

Would be great if you could sign in with a different Microsoft account, than the one used on your computer or phone. My Xbox gamertag is on a different account and they will not let me merge or transfer accounts do to some ridiculous security rule about moving a gamertag to an account with Office 365 billing assigned to it. So it is basically useless as is.
