Previously the My Xbox Live app only allowed users to track and compare user profiles and achievements, connect with Xbox Live friends, and manipulate your 3D avatar.
Now, Microsoft has included the capability to access a variety of entertainment content located on your XBox 360 using the My Xbox Live app as a remote. The app allows users to play, pause, fast-forward, and rewind video and music files as well as search and discover new content.
The update also includes stability improvements for both the iPhone and iPad version.
The My Xbox Live app was not the only Xbox/mobile connection Microsoft has made lately. On June 4, at the E3 gaming convention, Microsoft unveiled its SmartGlass platform -- a multiscreen entertainment initiative, similar to Apple's AirPlay, which allows users to beam content from their mobile devices (iOS, Android, Microsoft Windows Mobile) to their televisions via their Xbox 360.
The My Xbox Live app is available as a free download in Apple's App Store.
