good but

its good I like the idea but there is one thing missing when using the controller I wanted to use the keyboard key like arrow key for upper joystick control and mouse for view etc it could be better if this was added to the app keyboard controls for joystick

Can't even sign in

I installed this a few days ago and can't even sign in. It takes my username and password, then gives me an error code and says the service is unavailable. This has been going on ever since I installed it several days ago.

Great app

It's easy and when I'm sick I don't have to move. Only making me more lazy. Thanks Microsoft.

would be great if I could actually manage my account like it says, so I could change my bio again which I need to like the smart glass on my phone did before that broke

The most and best in all categories

There isn't a more aesthetic and useful app in the Marketplace. A must have for Xbox owners, especially those that have an Xbox music pass.

Unrealized idea... needs more functionality

Just tried with Xbox music... you must have XBL GOLD even if you have a music pass. You must navigate the music app on the Xbox, you can't select music on the device and have it play to the Xbox. Experience is tiresome, and requires the Xbox to be connected to a display... worthless novelty as it stands now.

I'm still not sold on the base proposition of SG

OK, maybe now, SG supports serial LiveID logins. Maybe. OK, maybe sometimes, a touch screen UI is better than a game controller or a traditional remote. Sometimes. But the idea of bombarding me with anecdotal info, during a movie or intense game, divides and diverts my attention away from the main screen. Pausing primary content, while wandering off on side-tracks is the BandAid, but mostly rewards those with short attention spans, poor memory and/or lack of accumulated background wisdom. Bleh.
