Xbox Companion App Lets You Control Xbox 360 via Windows Phoneby Anand Lal Shimpi on October 5, 2011 2:07 PM EST
Synergy between devices is one of the next major phases in the evolution of mobile computing. We've seen smartphone-as-a-remote apps for both Android and iOS, but today Microsoft announced the Xbox Companion App for Windows Phone 7. When it's released, the Companion App will let you browse for content on Xbox Live, select it and command your Xbox 360 to play it. The Companion App acts as a remote control for your Xbox 360, perhaps solving the issue of having to occasionally type a lot of info via a standard Xbox 360 controller or remote.
No word yet on availability.
