Hopefully they bring an update out to fix the menu systems and make it more like the X360. I love apps but the system was designed to be used for Kinect navigation with voice commands and this makes the system very hard to navigate with just a controller. Ok you can pin apps to the home screen but with 45 new apps coming out plus the ones already on the console it's going to be very cluttered on the home screen with no way to sort between pinned apps and games. I hope Microsoft can find a way to make it better because I love video games. XoXoXo

You can simply go to my apps, and all of your apps will be there. What is so hard or difficult about that?

user14394141174d ago

Its obvious that Major Nelson or Phil Spencer has sent people over from the blog or Microsoft forums to disagree with my posts here on N4G, YOU WILL NEVER SILENCE ME.

To load all apps you have to load an app called my apps and games? Everything is an app on xbox one lol Bring back the seamless integration of the X360 PLS. XoXoXo

Volkama1174d ago

You don't have the console do you?

My games and apps is on the home screen as soon as you turn the console on. From there it categorises apps and games, so it really doesn't take long to find what you want. Not something I ever do myself, since "XBox play x" is simple (or putting a disc in if you still do that kinda thing).

Having said that, other elements of the interface definitely have room for improvement.

It's funny when people get caught.

Instagram and Vine please. First console to have either of those will get a pretty big social boost.

Lawboy21174d ago

U didn't read the article...vine is now on xbox one along with twitter...but instar am is not there yet

HugoDrax1174d ago

"Another exciting new feature coming to Xbox One is the first Vine app made for TV. Not only will you be able to watch all your favorite Vine videos on the biggest screen in your house, you’ll be able to share gameplay videos from Upload Studio as a Vine."

- Major Nelson

Last paragraph once you read the article. Now all they have to announce is.....

"XBOX Screenshot.........XBOX send to Instagram" :-)

Universal Apps are going to be a killer feature on Xbox One. This is going to a major distinguishing feature on the X1 and will further separate it from the PS4 on the UI side. Having a Windows 8 custom OS means that over time the X1 will develop a much more robust ecosystem.

No_Limit1174d ago

The best part of it is, apps don't require Live gold anymore so more people will get to experience and use these apps.

choujij1174d ago (Edited 1174d ago )

Let me know when I can install Firefox or Chrome. If it's running Windows, I don't see why we can't be allowed to run our own preferred web browsers, instead of Internet Explorer.

mcstorm1174d ago

I agree and its a great list of apps only thing I want to know is what is the date they are out and the 2 I want the most are NHL and NowTV.

True_Samurai1174d ago

Yes I've been waiting for the crunchy roll app! I love me some anime :)

Brix901174d ago

I can't wait...hope PS4 implements some apps like this.

Toman851174d ago

Of course only US. MS screw Europe again. Only one app is coming to Norway, my country.
The only thing I want my X1 to be is pure gaming console, not this mediahub.

Blaze9291174d ago

"The only thing I want my X1 to be is pure gaming console"

if that is so, then why this:

"MS screw Europe again. Only one app is coming to Norway"

sounds like you're pretty mad. Yet you don't care about apps?

marlinfan101174d ago

"The only thing I want my x1 to be is a pure gaming console"

Why cant it do both? Having the apps wont take away from your gaming

creeping judas1174d ago

Some apps are not allowed to be offered in certain countries, due that countries policies. Ie, we cannot get Hulu Plus in Canada, unless you use an IP address changer program to fool the protection in place. This is done in Canada to ensure proper amount of Canadian content.

JasonKCK1174d ago

Lot of BS flying around today. Lot of people pretending to own something they don't.

Toman851174d ago (Edited 1174d ago )

Do you imply that I don't own a Xbox One?
That is so messed up, of course I have a X1, beside my Wii U and PS4. Do you want some proof? :)

lovelobster1174d ago

You can change in setting your region to US download all the US apps and go back to your region they work just fine my account is for US. and I have apps from UK and Mexico I dont see the problem.

kennyg37391174d ago

If you want a pure gaming go buy nes, Sega Genesis, or something like that. Times are changing buddie...

Toman851174d ago (Edited 1174d ago )

@kennyg3739
Have them hehe! I always want new consoles for my gaming needs.

Fireseed1174d ago

Sounds like a complaint you should lodge with the App developers... not MS. Unless you're thick enough to think MS actually makes these apps.
