Xbox SmartGlass for Android

Microsoft brings their "second screen" application to Amazon's storefront for Kindle Fire devices

About six months ago Microsoft released their Xbox SmartGlass app for Android to generally good reviews. If you haven't been paying attention, the app acts as a sort of controller for your Xbox, allowing you to surf the net from the console, act as a media controller remote and even change your Xbox 3D avatar. But until today, users wanting to use the app on their Kindle Fire and Kindle Fire HD devices had to resort to hackery to use Google Play or outright sideload a copy.

No longer, as it's now officially available from Amazon. We're not sure just how many folks want to use a tablet as a remote versus use a smartphone, or how many of the folks who do will be using a Kindle Fire, but if you're one of them, click this link to grab it, or check out the appstore from your Kindle Fire or Kindle Fire HD.

What good reviews did you read? Lol Everything I read was bashing smart glass on Android.

Has anyone been able to get Smartglass to play nice with Game of Thrones on Xbox Go? The season 3 episodes have claimed additional content but I haven't gotten anything with my Nexus 7 or an iPad.

People still use Xbox outside the United States Of Microsoft???
