Xbox SmartGlass for iOS hits the App Store

Just in time for today's launch of its blockbuster sci-fi shooter Halo 4, Microsoft has debuted its Xbox SmartGlass app for iPhone and iPad on the App Store. The free app acts as an interactive second screen for the Xbox 360, allowing you to browse content on your console and launch it, then use your phone or tablet as a touch-based controller.

More importantly - and exciting - though, the SmartGlass app provides additional game-related information and input methods when used with certain Xbox 360 titles. Major game releases that currently support SmartGlass include Halo 4, Dance Central 3, and Forza Horizon. Apps on the 360 that can be controlled via SmartGlass include Internet Explorer, Xbox Music, Xbox Video, Netflix, and more.
