App Reviews

  • First off, don’t listen to Dude-o: people like him are the reason we get crappy apps.

    By DanielSan420
    This has not streamlined the app at all. As a matter of fact, it has taken me till now to realize that they made a separate app for a SMALL feature. This is something I would expect microsoft to do: not sony. Hopefully they end up at least putting the option back into the actual app for those of us that don't need extra junk on our phones. Why change it if it wasn’t broken? The xbox app still hasn’t separated all of it’s features. The messenger app might have a case considering that facebook does the same(at least for those of us who don’t want to use facebook’s main app and keep in touch with friends.) It’s like an up and coming amateur developer did this because they thought it would be better. But in actuality, it makes everything more convoluted and plain ugly.
  • Good while it lasted

    By Cemy1
    Got this app a few months ago. It worked just fine, served its purpose. I just needed it to make responding in my community a lot easier. Suddenly this week it can no longer find my PS4 for some reason. Says “No PS4 Found” when it used to just automatically connect. I’ve tried rebooting my PS4, signing out of the app, deleting and reinstalling the app, updating my phone and the app itself. No change. Thank goodness there’s a separate community app! 4 stars because the app usually did as it was intended to do until recently. It made typing A LOT easier. I’ll really miss using it:/
  • You need to install the PSapp first!

    By iJewBoi
    When I first tried this app on my iPhone7 I could not for the life of me figure out how to make it work. It would just sit on the loading screen and eventually time out and I never got anywhere with it until this time when I installed the PSapp and the Second Screen app at the same time. I opened the PSapp first and logged in and then clicked on the second screen function thru the app. Now this app works well and functions smooth on my iPhoneSE, it’s really more of a plug-in than it’s own app
  • From 1 Good App to 3 Mediocre Apps

    By Mr.Wheelzies
    The first app was great. Messages, second screen and everything all in one. That seems like what the goal would be. Then messages was pulled away into its own app. Now I’ve gone from 1 good app to 2 meh apps. I got used to that but I was never too happy with it. Now you tap “second screen” in the newly redesigned app and it brings up to the App Store for yet another app. Second screen has been stripped from the original app to make its own app (sound familiar?). So now I have 3 apps for what 1 app used to do. It seems like Sony went backwards. Usually you aim for 1 solid product that can do everything but they had that and deconstructed from there. It makes no sense but nonetheless I have 1 more app to clutter my screen.
  • How many more apps, Sony??

    By Grape Julius
    The Sony philosophy: “If one app is good, just imagine how great a half-dozen would be!” Unfortunately, your customers don’t appear to share your convoluted wisdom. You already HAD a single multifunctional app that worked fine—now you want us to download countless apps that do the same thing. Not to improve service, mind you—this 2nd screen app’s functionality remains as sketchy as ever—but just “because”? Either start listening to your customers or lose them, Sony. As for me, this is enough of an ongoing issue that I’m seriously considering switching over to XBox—the ONLY thing that keeps me from doing so is a single PS4 exclusive title (MLB: The Show).
  • From 1 great app, now requiring 3 separate apps!!!

    By GSUnjb1985
    Absolutely mind boggling! We had one great app that handled EVERYTHING on PSN. PS Store, messages, second screen, even watching somebody's Share Play stream ALL FROM ONE APP. Then they removed messages and put them in their own app... what was the point of that at all? Just because Facebook did it? It wasn't a good idea then and it's still a bad idea now... Now they've really outdone themselves by splitting the app yet again; Second Screen is gone, now requiring 3 separate apps to do the job of 1... Who makes these decisions? After Sony releasing a "4K" PS Pro console that doesnt have a 4K disk player, I'm starting to think they are managed by buffoons.
  • Does its job.

    By ShadowJoe
    It does what it was meant to do. I’d like it if you could switch to a darker theme when selecting your system, as the white screen is really bright. While i will agree that taking out the feature from the original app was kind of lame, i will probably use this one over the main app from now on because all i used the app for was for turning on the system while in another room.
  • There is untapped potential

    By Halfandhalfbiscuits
    What they have is an unfinished Idea of being able to play your games from your PlayStation straight to your phone no the problem here isn’t the app itself. Its the fact that they have not incorporated their ideas into the games. More of their games need to have support if the second screen app. The best I can do is a controller. So I won’t get rid of the app with the high hopes of them using the app to its full potential. Please sony please. Do what is right
  • Could be better could be worse

    By Thatguyrightoverthere
    While I would prefer to have consolidation of the apps again, this does work basically pretty well. I don’t love the giant bright white blank screen however when I’m inputting text on the PS via my tablet. Love having that feature, just don’t love the bright screen on the tablet that goes with it. White screens drain batteries faster, and they make me turn my brightness down which then I have to readjust when I leave the app.
  • It used to be 5 stars in the ps app altogether

    By Nood13z
    This is a terrible idea and most gamers like me who are loyal PlayStation fans hate the fact that we need multiple apps for each feature that made the original PlayStation app into a perfect 5-star useful app. Go back to putting all features into one app please. Otherwise you're better off removing the apps for all the bad ratings they'll continue to be getting from all of us. The PlayStation app alone when it first released and all its features put altogether in one app used to be perfect! Perfect I tell you! Now it's all ruined and separated and useless!! Hmph! 😡
