Microsoft has renamed the official Xbox LIVE app for iOS, and released it again with Xbox SmartGlass functionality for both iPhone and iPad. The original Xbox LIVE app for iOS was released back in December last year.
Now at version 2.0, the renamed Xbox SmartGlass app for iOS lets you watch or play the interactive content from Xbox 360 right on the iPhone or iPad. Besides this, it also lets you completely navigate your gaming console from your iOS device, lets you browse web on the TV with keyboard and zoom control from the device, searching Xbox Music and Video catalog, changing Xbox avatar, among other things.
