If you’re still on the fence about buying an Xbox One you may want to grab the new SmartGlass app for Android and iOS to get a more honest look at the console. Released ahead of Friday’s big console launch, the app lets you poke around with the launch lineup and some of the console’s features.

You can watch user-uploaded clips from some of the games (the “S-Rank (1st Level)” from Crimson Dragon is particularly revealing), check out the sleazy in-game currency that most of the titles offer, and see some of the time-based Challenge Achievements that will kick off on Friday. This is the stuff I’ve been endlessly refreshing in hopes of finding. The app is also much more feature rich than the previous SmartGlass app for 360 and runs much smoother.
