iOS SmartGlass App arrives

Written by David Stellmack

No native iPhone 5 support yet

While Android owners will still have to wait, Microsoft has delivered its first version of the SmartGlass application for the Apple iOS platform. The application can be downloaded from the Apple App store for iOS devices running version 5 of iOS or higher, but it does not yet support the iPhone 5 in native screen formatting; so if you have the iPhone 5, you will have to deal with it for the time being.

The application replaces the Xbox for iOS application that Microsoft released previously, so this will be the Xbox application for iOS owners. The SmartGlass application does look like it supports pretty much the same stuff the old application did, so there is no loss in functionality.

Once the application is installed, Xbox 360 owners will be able to enjoy both Forza Horizon and Dance Central 3, which are the first two applications that offer optional SmartGlass support.

Look for our update on SmartGlass with Forza Horizon in the next couple of days to get our real world impressions on the usefulness of it with the game.
