  • Great but not flawless

    By Scarletspider97
    Update: found out it was a setting for my WiFi connection 😅 I love using the PlayStation App so I can easily see which friends of mine are online check out the streamer recommendations, but one thing I use it for more than anything else is the quick access to PlayStation Store. This is my number one use for this app and now it is the one feature that will not work. For the past several months I will go to the PlayStation Store from the App and it will connect for about 5 seconds and then say “network connection lost.” A few attempts laters and it still won’t connect, meanwhile I go to the Store on my browser and it works just fine. Don’t know why the app doesn’t work, but I wish it would get fixed soon. P.s. Absolutely LOVE the new interface update. Looks amazing!
  • 🤔

    The PlayStation app has lots of good features and helps me know when to play on PC or PlayStation. The big problem is that for user that doesn’t use the PlayStation app very often I often find myself signed out of the PlayStation app every update! Is insanely frustrating because I would love to be able to talk with people that are messaging me through my phone instead of having to turn on the PlayStation but I have to sign in again and again and sometimes my password doesn’t even want to work on here. The worst part about the app is that it’s separated from the other two core features of PSN! Communities and messages are both part of separate apps where as with Discord there are no separate apps for different features. Even Xbox is better than PS in this area. The PlayStation app needs to be turned into one app not three, And the app needs to calm down with its security settings. I’m not hosting a US nuke control server via PlayStation... or am I?
  • Needs some work.

    By Holly Cost
    I would have started at 4 stars and then given you 5, but I felt like you wouldn’t fix what I’m asking for. I think the UI is pretty good and works fine on iPhone X and I have few issues with it. BUT, there are 2 things I REALLY want changed and I don’t know if I’m alone here, but I think they would make the experience a lot better. 1.) On the PSN feature of the app, it is confusing to navigate. The part that is confusing is the back button. It is too hard to find and the X button kicks you out of PSN leaving you to start all over. This is annoying esp if you are shopping. 2.) I use the PS Communities app ALOT and I like to post photos. Offline! It would be nice if I could access my photo gallery from my phone, even if it meant being hooked up to WiFi and being in the vicinity of my PS4. Now, is that asking too much? If not, please change this. Thank you!
  • Review Update

    Update: Love the new update and pretty much fixed everything I had mentioned expect the streaming stuff which doesn’t matter cause I have the twitch app. Great UI, I’m very surprised by the new update. Old Review: The app design is great and all but the fact that the psn store is not built in is horrible, instead it directs you to the psn website in safari. I would like to purchase content from the app not log in to the website and buy games or dlc, makes no sense. Also the live from playstation feature can at least send you to the twitch, and ustream apps instead of the website. It would also be great to integrate ps3 and psvita content if they add a built in psn store. If they just fix those things I would give this app 5 stars.
  • (Updated) Worked okay at first, completely bugged now

    By Kevinthegreatest8463
    Update: This app basically listened to me and many other who also made suggestions. As I said before, this app needs to be similar to the Xbox app but I believe they made a huge improvement beyond my expectations I have to say, it’s easy to use, clean, smooth, no more bugs, and an excellent app in general This app was working fine, even though it had its moments where it signs you out many times, now I can't even sign in anymore, i tap sign in, loads, and does not do anything. I believe they need to look at the Xbox app as a great example of a console app for your phone, everything is very clean and easy to function.
  • Sony secretly disabling ”Players you may know”

    By NickerPL
    The ”players you may know” functionality is no longer working, at least for me, both when using my ps4 & ps app in Europe. It used to always suggest around 40 people I might know but all of a sudden they all disappeared and now I’m hearing there isn’t anyone I might know. My guess is it has either something to do with the GDPR regulations being rolled out or with Facebook being under fire recently over privacy concerns (I’m assuming the ”Players you might know” feature worked using Facebook’s API in some way, and it’s now blocked) and having to bend on some policies to the European Union. It’s ridiculous a useful feature like that could go through I could best describe as a dark-deprecation in some regions and players aren’t informed it’s happening. It makes PSN and this app worse. Sony Twitter support wasn’t helpful at all and was elusive in their answers when asked about this. Shame.
  • Playstation app review

    By ron72638495832222
    Overall, the interface of the app is significantly better. It is much easier to navigate to different aspects of the PSN - friends online, messages, notifications, trophies, etc. There are some downsides to the new version of the app. There are aspects that have been lost from the previous version: 1) Trophy Review sorting: users can no longer organize trophy comparisons by date earned, rarity, & other aspects. This aspect of the previous version was awesome for users that enjoy trophy comparisons. 2) Trophy display (Plats): Plat trophies are no longer displayed by game titles. 3) Trophy display (totals): Users can no longer go further into a game's trophy breakdown to view total trophies for a game (i.e. 55/47 trophies collected -> 0/1 gold, 9/9 silver, 35/36 bronze, etc.) 3) Automatic updates to information: users, on many occasions, now have to pull down on a section to initiate an update. The previous version of the app did this automatically. 4) Recent notifications by user: Users can no longer review all recent notifications for a user by going to their PSN profile in the app. In the previous version, all recent activities were listed at the bottom of a given profile. - Ron
  • It honestly gets worst

    By MitchTheBossMan (Youtuber)
    The app isn’t bad by any means but does require a major upgrade, one to where users can message friends within the app and turn your PlayStation on when not connected to the same WiFi when allowed by the ps4 user and iPhone which would be convenient when wanting to turn it on prior to getting home. What makes this app bad though is the layout what is it like seriously. The layout is plain out trash make it more new and something the users will actually want to click on and use. The app has some convenience but I’d had a better layout it would still be on my phone. That is really all just a few updates to how the app looks the make it smoother and better, also fix a few errors within the app and it has the potential to be a 5 star.
  • Notifications have become ADS

    By Mr Hayhurst
    I want to keep push notifications on to handle friend requests but now I get push notifications on my phone every day that say “you have a notification,” then when you go into it, it’s just a new banner in the feed. They are sending notifications now to advertise a sale or new game instead of when something actually happens. I’ll see the ads when I go into the app, so give me an actual reason to go into the app instead of click bait ways like “you have a notification,” and then there’s nothing. Make your communities better, make messaging better! Let me make a 10-sec video to send to people! Upgrade this thing! It’s also SUUPPER slow, so please fix that before you add stuff.
  • Not as good as it used to be.

    By RhettJ89
    While the app has become easier to navigate I feel it’s because a lot of things were removed. For starters the messenger feature that was built into the app was great, now I need a whole other app for that. Second (and personally not that important to me) why can’t I turn my PlayStation on with my phone when connected to WiFi? Lastly what really bothers me is that now when I go into the ps store through the app I can’t buy or rent movies through it. That was so convenient for when I’m out and about and wanted to see what new movies were out on PlayStation. Now I’d rather just go to redbox. Like I said earlier they succeeded in making it look better but everything the app can do the console itself does better. I personally am deleting the app. Waste of memory.
