If your console on it will connect and state that you are on with Smart Glass. You can swipe between your screens looking at your social page to your games and apps. You can even use your Android device as a keyboard in many games in case you don’t have the Chatpad.

A good start but the politics of Google and Microsoft has made a stink, yet again. This app works great for my phone (HTC Vivid running Ice Cream Sandwich) but bit won’t install on my Nexus 7 running Jelly Bean. I’m willing to give the benefit of the the doubt and chalk it up to not being compatible in a tablet environment or not yet developed for Jelly Bean, but it would be hard pressed to find that it isn’t MS taking a stance against Google’s flagship tablet. Also, as of this article, there is no iOS version either.
