Set out onto the Nordschleiffe for the several hundredth time (Forza 2-5).... but needed... headlights!
Went round Dubai .... in blinding rain and fog

Congratulations to the developers. The two most critical missing pieces to console racing sims are now in place.

The downside - X1 controller - I have yet to turn even one serious lap. While an outstanding sim job has been done, making it more accesscible to controllers would be good

My real question is the apps - is pCars Profiler compatible with X1?

Unfortunately not. The applications you see on the website are for PC only. It is due to MS and Sony being restrictive on their platforms. Some people have mentioned that games like Battlefield 4 have applications but do remember they probably paid a lot of money to MS/Sony to allow development of its apps.

SmartGlass has also been mentioned but to be honest I'm not sure what that is.

It is a companion app which can be loaded onto a tablet (e.g. an iPad) and the game unlocks extra features with it. I have used it for some games but it is buggy and a bit of a gimmick.

If the developers have time they might add it later (I have not seen them mention it, but am hopeful).
