Microsoft’s SmartGlass – a second screen that interacts with Xbox 360 from your mobile devices — has now been ported to iOS and Android. The SmartGlass app for iOS acts as a supplement to your Xbox experience. In addition to allowing users to interact with various media and games, the app also tracks user achievements, connects to Xbox friends and lets users change their avatar.

The SmartGlass app is free with no in-app purchases. This is all part of Microsoft’s strategy to gain wider adoption across their entertainment and productivity offerings. Next up will be Office apps for iOS early in 2013.
