Control your Xbox 360 using your iPad

My Xbox Live iOS app updated with new remote functionality

The My Xbox Live iOS app has been updated to allow users to control their Xbox 360 using an iPad.


As spotted by Apple Insider, version 1.6 adds the Companion feature to the iPad, enabling users to launch games, browse and play Xbox Live videos or DVDs with play, pause, fast forward and rewind media controls, and navigate the console's user interface.

The free update weighs in at 27MB and is available through the App Store.

The app already allowed users to view recent console activity, track and compare achievements, connect with Xbox Live friends, and mess about with their Avatars.

The My Xbox Live app launched for iOS devices in December 2011, and for Android devices last month.
