Sony Launches PlayStation App for iOS and Android. Sony has launched the official PlayStation app for iOS and Android, ahead of the PlayStation 4launch later this week.
The app lets users access the PlayStation Network from their smartphones and tablets. Even if you’re away from your PlayStation, you can now compare trophies and see what your friends are playing, chat with friends, receive notifications, game alerts and invitations.
You can also browse the PlayStation store, buy games and add-ons and push them to your PS4 system at home.
Other features include using your mobile device as an on-screen keyboard for your PS4 and access to PlayStation system guides, manuals and the official PlayStation blog.
The iOS version of the app requires iOS 6.0 and is compatible with iPhone, iPad and iPod touch, but it’s optimized for iPhone 5. The Android variant requires Android 4.0 and up.
PlayStation 4 is scheduled to hit stores November 15 in the U.S., and it’s coming to Europe and Australia on November 29, followed by a December release in other markets, including Saudi Arabia, Honk Kong, Taiwan, Korea and South Africa.
