Xbox SmartGlass App for Android
This app requires Android 4.0 or higher, but strangely isn't compatible with the Nexus 7. Other than that, it looks really cool.
Source: Google Play
If you're not familiar with SmartGlass, it controls just about every aspect of the media-friendly Xbox 360 aside from actual game control. The app will let your navigate through your Xbox's menu, pause and play music and videos, or even purchase new content right from your phone. The tiled interface of the 360 is particularly conducive to touchscreen control, as is the digital keyboard for web surfing or searching the store. Lastly you've got a social portal for all of your Xbox Live friends, including live chat and profile customization. (Source

Its good on Windows Phone 7 too and they are releasing it for iStuff aswell. Makes a really nice remote touchpad for IE10 on the Xbox too.

Installed on my SGSI.... seems to run ok, and can't wait to get home to give it a try....
I shall mainly be using it to spook my stepson, by changing everything whilst he's out so when he gets in, it's all a bit weird!!!

I've been having a play with it over the weekend, I made the mistake of letting my friend set it up while I was doing something on the computer, he turned on Allow Interruption and synced his phone too. It lets him cancel out whatever I'm doing to play music / videos. Was rather disturbed when my game of CoD was cut short and Rick Astley started playing.

Saw SMARTGLASS at E3 and it looks awesome. From what i remember you can use iPhones and iPads with it as well. Can't wait to use my iphone as a mouse to browse IE on xbox.

It's pretty epic on my iPad to be fair... Can control the whole of Netflix without having to move from my bed!

Don't bother trying to use it with Halo 4 under Android or WP7, the useless dropkicks only support it under W8 and iOS, way to go Microsoft, care to burn anymore bridges and market share while you're at it. Maybe a free terminal illness with every purchase.
