The Kinect Dashboard Home screen is a beautiful tailored,app-like experience. Gamers can slowly browse through their collection or simply play the featured movie or game experience currently displayed in the home screen. The interface is reminiscent of the Zune software, so general Zune users should have no problem getting the feel of Microsoft’s latest software enhancement to Xbox.Just like in the Zune experience, simply hover with your hand ( Kinect powered) to pan through the screens- previously you had to flip your control stick to switch. A generally well done , at-a-glance look, the Kinect Dashboard Home screen performs well without getting too much on the way.
Social on the new Dashboard looks clean and amazing. The greeny look is replaced by nice grayish background where all your avatars live and breathe. instead of being corralled to the side, avatars are now given more room. Handy feature when a large display is not available.As for the former plain controls, the new Dashboard replaces that junk with Live Tile-like controls that give gamers more information for less work on their part. easier gaming!!!
Bing has finally come to Xbox…gamers can now search for their favorite movies,shows,games,and apps all within Xbox and merely using their voice. Want to watch latest Xmen movie?Simply call Bing up and dictate the name of your search…in seconds, you have your result and are ready to watch!!
Music lovers..this one is for you!!! All the Zune Pass music, which numbers in the millions, is practically free with your Xbox membership. Favorite artists, albums, and songs are now easier to find using your voice…and easier to browse using better filtering and improved interface.

Let’s cut to the chase- 9 new ZuneHD apps are ready for download.Here’s a quick overview of what Microsoft released. images courtesy of ZuneUnited. Here are just the most note-worthy ones.
Notes..perhaps the most desired ZuneHD app to date, sports an easy Wp7-esque design, includes Lists, which function as check-lists/ to-do-lists, and automatic saving, as well as note date and time.What impressed me of this app is the minimalist interface that , while easy on the eyes, features all the functionality expected in a Note app. I for one, was dying to get a Note app on my Zune..Redmond deserves credit for following thousands of Note app requests.
Supernova is a game with chain reaction fun..plays very fun,brilliant colors and shapes make it very enjoyable..and serves as just another very fun time burner.
This is a great blend between old-school..tap on the desired block to jump and your character( which looks like A blend of Mario and the Android robot) will jump. Run and Jump is a fun game that is easy to learn and fun way to burn some time. The speed can be adjusted for a higher difficulty.
Level is a handy utility that does what its name suggests…it levels objects to a perfect balance. The utility also includes degrees of tilt and the ability to save your level readings.The app stores your initial reading in red to distinguish the initial reading from the current reading. Pretty useful!
