Xbox SmartGlass development kit released
In accordance with Microsoft’s schedule to release Xbox SmartGlass this autumn, they have made the SDK (Software Development Kit) freely available for partners that have agreements to develop Xbox games or entertainment applications for the Xbox 360 console. The SDK is available right now from https://developer.xboxlive.
If you don’t really understand Xbox SmartGlass, Microsoft provides this concise summary:
Xbox SmartGlass is “an application for Windows 8, Windows Phone, and other portable devices that connects phones, PCs and tablets with your Xbox 360 console in an intelligent way. Use your phone or tablet as a secret screen or enhanced information for your favourite game. Use your tablet to launch and navigate a movie on your TV and get rich details on the cast, crew and storyline. Pull the movie back to your tablet to finish watching it on the go. Use your phone or tablet as another remote and easily navigate your entertainment and menus by simple flicks, gestures and pinch and zoom.”
