    It's ok, I think they should let you browse the XBL arcade for new games, and watch videos or look at pictures about them. Also It should have more of the Inside Xbox stuff available. Oh, and the STUPID sounds it makes when you scroll or press a button need to have an option to be muted....

    +1 on this - maybe take a page out of Google Play's book where you could shop for games on your phone/tablet and then - after purchase of course - have them installed to your XBox automatically when it's next powered on.

    That'll be the same "Inside XBox" that got cancelled last month? (http://www.mcvuk.com/news/read/insid...crapped/095753)

    On my SIII the noises are okay. BTW, did you know if you tap on your avatar then you can get he/she/it to animate - nothing Disney needs to fear, but a nice small touch. Actually it'd be nice if you had the same control that you have on an XBox itself - being able to spin the character etc.

    The videos in there look nice, but the app definitely performs a whole lot better over WiFi than 3G.

    I agree. This app is very limited. Why release a shiney new version for Apple and just dump the old version on Android. Smacks of laziness.
