The folks at Media Mobile Technologies Global have developed many apps for Windows 10 and have now been tinkering around with a media player that is part of the Universal Windows Platform that works on Xbox One as well as Windows.  Called Media Player Ultra, the media player is listed to play hundreds of media formats and is great for anyone who wishes to use network media storage in part as a DLNA server.  What makes it best is that the media player is currently free for download.  Anyone who wishes to even test out media or connect a USB device to ...

Inside every Xbox One lurks Windows 10 - Microsoft's all-encompassing operating system that supports the Universal Windows Platform. This means - in theory - any app that uses UWP can run on any Windows 10 device, be it PC, laptop, tablet, phone, or Xbox One. We've picked out a few of our favourites. VideoLAN VideoLan - or VLC - is one of the most fully featured video players around, with a support for a wide range of file formats and a whole host of tricks - like electronically boosting volume beyond 100%, useful when that atmospheric soundtrack is just a little ...

Dropbox, for those unfamiliar, is a cloud storage company that allows you to access files from almost any device you are using.  You can now add Xbox One as another capable device.  So, are we expected to be doing Office documents on our Xbox One's now?  Not at all - and the folks behind Dropbox know you won't either.  So, what can we do with Dropbox on console? From the home console you will be able to upload screenshots and pictures taken from your Kinect directly to your Dropbox.  Video files that are in your Dropbox can stream directly to ... Read More »
A month ago, we brought you news that Microsoft acquired the interactive livestreaming service, Beam. So it's virtually self-evident that they would eventually bring the service to their Universal Windows Platform (UWP) and release an app for Xbox One. Beam allows its viewers to interact in new-fangled ways such as allowing the streamer to control certain aspects of a particular game, whilst the viewer may get to control another facet. This feature alone, and the fact that Beam has better technology backing it, makes it a more stable platform than twitch, so we're undoubtedly convinced that Microsoft are in this for the end-game. Twitch: Get your ... Read More »
Have you ever wanted to check your tweets and live feeds from your Twitter on Xbox One?  Well now you can.  Twitter is available now on Xbox One under the Apps section. The more interesting news however is that many have been quick to bash the app due to its lack of features. At the time of writing, the app has been rated as a 1.4 out of 5 score with 78 reviews.  Streaming live sporting events have been missing as well as a search function.  Hopefully Microsoft can improve on the Twitter app to make it more like the ...

Spotify, the music streaming app, and Sony, purveyors of electronics, have a special relationship - after all, the Japanese company axed its own streaming service - Music Unlimited - to partner with the Swedish streaming brand. As a result, there's no sign that an official Spotify app will be appearing on our Xboxes any time soon. If you are looking for an alternative, you might want to consider Spoticast. Spoticast bills itself as Spotify with music videos - but it instead of drawing on Spotify's millions and millions of tracks directly, it asks you to link your Spotify account and does its best to ...

For years, Halo’s Forge mode - which it's debut in 2007's Halo 3 - has empowered Halo fans to create new maps and game modes that have changed the way people play and experience Halo. Since last month developer 343 Industries has been talking about a release date of 8 September - but we can confirm it's out one day early, and available to download! The level editor is responsible for legendary community-created classics such as Grifball and new favorites like Flapjack Frenzy and Ground Pound Arena. With Halo 5: Forge, the entire Forge experience from Halo 5: Guardians comes to ... Read More »
If you've bought heavily into the Windows 10 ecosystem, this latest change might give you brief pause. Xbox One consoles now count towards your Windows 10 device limit. You can install any Apps or Games you purchase from the Windows 10 store on up to 10 devices - and with the availability of Universal Windows Platform (UWP) apps on Xbox One, that device limit will now include your Xbox One console. This might be a problem for some - in fact I thought I would be close to the limit, with one Windows 10 desktop PC, three Windows 10 laptops, ... Read More »
