PlayStation more like gaystation. This app doesn’t even work. No wonder I stuck to Xbox
Poggers.
by Saggy Grundle on 2019/12/12 19:32
Can see when the boys are online. Get party notifications, messages, and updates on trophies and activities of friends. Works better than the Playstation itself. Makes profile and management smoother and adds a few more capabilities. It’s awesome
Only works on wifi, even then only half the time
by TaraTrill on 2019/12/12 12:24
As stated in the title, the app will not load unless on wifi. Then when on wifi, majority of the time it tells me I have had too many requests to the server from my phone just for checking the app. This app is not usable. It would be great but only if devs would fix these issues that have been ongoing for a very long time.
Ehh
by KiddTone18 on 2019/12/12 10:43
Over all I think the app is great but the app needs a lil fix, everytine I open the app it’ll either crash or just not open when I tap a notifications.
Awesome App

I love PlayStation and I love this app.
Nonfunctional
by Psyousuckballs on 2019/12/08 15:15
APP no longer opens after update. You get an error message and it stays on the blue screen.
The app is alright but very frustrating
by Prettysweet555 on 2019/12/08 02:13
I don’t understand why I have to open and close the app 5-6 times just for the app to actually start up. When you originally open the app it just stays on the PlayStation logo and then crashes the app OVER AND OVER AGAIN until you open it and get lucky! Please fix

Update???

Pointless
by souljaj on 2019/12/06 10:24
Always comes up with can’t connect to network! It’s pointless to even have this app! Just shows how Xbox is the better system then ps! Get you crap together PlayStation!
Clips
by hdhshsva. s s on 2019/12/06 03:29
They need to add where you could view your clips like Xbox
Needs access to the video gallery
by Anden8910 on 2019/12/06 02:13
The app could really use a feature that you can access you clips from anywhere, I would use the app much more often if it did.

You can’t see the progress on the games you are downloading on your PS4 that gets annoying cus people like me who can’t play all the time just want to see if the game is done

Can’t Sign in
by Florkerta on 2019/12/03 05:30
I’m unable to sign into the store to view my profile, wishlist, etc. you tap the “Sign in” option in the type right corner and it just reverts back to the same thing. Needs to be fixed. Other than that, it’s a great app
Bad customer service

The ui looks like a lesser quality facebook and doesn’t even have night mode, not to be bias but i like my ps4 more than my xbox but the app for the xbox is detailed and customizable atleast.
Add something else more
by Theangrygrandpashow youtube on 2019/12/02 07:38
PS4 should add a feature where you can watch your friends play a game on the ps4 from there ps4 consoles and there smartphone device and others without using a live streaming.

Party Chat

Make a thing were you can join party chat on the app
Please add a party compatibility with Phones
by BhristianBhavez on 2019/11/30 17:13
The app is great and all but when are we gonna be able to join a party while on the phone. The Xbox app has this and I wish That Sony or w.e runs the app can add this part of compatibility to the app.

New feature required
by Codeman1976 on 2019/11/28 04:40
This is a good app for messaging single or multiple users in one message. I have been using it for years and use it on a daily basis. Some may complain about the breakup of the different aspects of previous versions, but it is better this way (IMO). The one option I have always wanted was the ability to not only add new recipients to a group message, but also to be able to remove individuals from a group message. If you are just wanting an app that is a messaging app, this is the one for you.
Great
by me100xbetter on 2019/11/28 04:37
Would be better if you could notifications from completion of applications.
Problem to log in.
by Alex3250 on 2019/11/28 03:05
When I go to this app to go to the store it won’t log me in. Especially that it won’t let me buy anything. Can you go fin the problem and fix it.

Authentication mechanism is trash
by WHDough on 2019/11/27 01:24
Huge PlayStation fan. The app is actually well designed from a UI perspective. However I frequently have to change settings for my kids re: play duration etc. In order to do so I have to reauthenticate every time. It is a 10 step process even if you save your password in the keychain, if you don’t, you’ll spend an extra 3-5 steps identifying stop lights, store fronts, etc. It’s ridiculously excessive. Why not use 2 factor auth from a credential supplier like Okta or Google. The authentication method is clunky and antiquated. But mostly it’s just a pain in the tail.

by I'l break yo Ankles on 2019/11/26 06:14
I hate how you have to download so many apps for PS4 just to send messages and things like that. I hate how you have no access to your clips. This app is lucky for me to give them two stars

I can’t use App. Text too small. User interface is awful 1. I can’t go back from game page. I can only close store 2. No button View all games in categories - Only for you! 2. Why homepage store offers me games that will releases in 200 days? Homepage should offer tops and sales. Completely unprofessional App.

Annoying and constantly being signed out
by Lady pumpkins on 2019/11/21 15:54
I’d negative review if I could. This app literally never keeps me logged in. Like I’m sick of constantly needing to resign in every single time I want to send a dumb message. This SET of apps numbs my mind with how ignorant they are.
Very poor experience.
by ADofCLE on 2019/11/20 20:33
The app entirely too slow, and needs a much better design (see the Xbox app). The PS Store, is just a wrapped web page, which it’s self is horrible, and buggy. Also, I can’t even sign into my account. There should be an actual store, built into the application (again, see the Xbox app).
Broken sign in
by Turk8484 on 2019/11/19 05:47
This app was great now I can’t sign in at all through the app. So I’m not able to buy any game through the app. I hit sign in and all it does is load up and then stays on the page I was already on. Even uninstalling it and reinstalling it nothing works.

Capture gallery
by dethebeast on 2019/11/16 21:18
I really like how it is now but sense its the psn app make it where u can access all of the apps on the psn but not the games of course but really the capture gallery so we can up load our trophies, screenshots and videos on the network and access the gallery it self so we can also up load our trophies, screenshots, and videos on to social media. So I really recommend adding this to the app or making a app for it

by Achillesye on 2019/11/15 13:33
There’s one major flaw that irritates me every time I use the app. It’s that It constantly disconnects you from the server and you have to type your info all over again. It’s not very consistent either. Sometimes it lets me go 20 minutes other time 2 minutes. Only thing stoping it from being amazing.
great app

PlayStation app
by epic_gamer_1737 on 2019/11/15 00:35
Hey this app is very great if you use it a lot like every two days or more because if you don’t it signs you out and then you have to get the email and it some times takes a little bit and the message should just be built in to this app instead of having to have two different apps but other then that this app is very good

by Lopez.22 on 2019/11/14 01:12
This is random but has anyone’s PlayStation app been acting up. Like my what’s new section doesn’t show any description. I can see when my friends get trophies and stuff but above the trophy where it says “xyz has achieved a trophy “ or “xyz played this for the first time” is blank. They should look into it. I’ve seen someone else posted about it but no answers.

It does what its use for

Love it!
by tjd3 on 2019/11/13 03:02
It’s a very good app, my only wish is that PlayStation adds messaging and has it one app like Xbox, where you can do it all at once. Instead of having to download two apps.
terrible
by yousukTB on 2019/11/12 14:20
consistently doesn’t work, always have login issues. while signed in every time i try to block or report spam it says im not signed in and gives no option to sign in, but i am in fact signed in! it’s also pretty stupid they have 5 apps instead of 1 like xbox, steam, and switch. poorly designed in every way!

by nigel93763 on 2019/11/10 20:27
Be ready to install 5 more applications for the full experience. Also cannot check progress of any update or download through app( even through WIFI, obviously). The PS store isn’t even integrated into the app, you get sent to safari through the app🙄. Unless you’re a streamer of some sort this app helps, otherwise your ‘activity’ is a bunch of achievements.

This app is very useful when you're not home. I feel that as someone who spends a lot of my free time on PS4, there are the times that I am away from my console. I feel that just like many apps that have this feature I feel that the PS App and PS Messages need this too: dark mode. I feel that it will improve the overall user experience that comes with PS App and PS Messages. I would really love to see this feature come around soon and I think a lot of people would say the same. Still a pretty great app.
Frickdaddy
by iAmFrickDaddy on 2019/11/09 18:58
Not user friendly. Removing friends and using parental controls is tedious to say the least. I put controls on the PS4 and I’m unable to control the Time limit.. I set it but the game continues allowing the user to play. What’s the point of a time limit if it doesn’t lock the account from playing after setting is maxed. PS4 parental controls are useless.
Great app but...
by Scrappn on 2019/11/08 16:05
The one thing that the Xbox app has over us playstation lovers is that they can save clips straight to their phone and not have to post on external sights like YouTube and twitter just to download our clip we need a way to save it to our phone easier.
Forced Log-In
by Christians Light on 2019/11/08 06:22

by DEANOSBRATS on 2019/11/07 21:36
Its a great app to buy games when not home and to sort out your profile... only issue is getting signed out of your account for no reason at times. Forcing you to put in your info again, and again.

Riddled with bugs, surprised there are so many 5 star reviews.
by HopefuIIyThisNicknameIsntTaken on 2019/11/05 11:51
Great looking app on the cover but once you actually start using it you’ll notice tons of bugs that really dampens the experience. Having to re-login every other day, not being able to scroll through your friend’s list without getting hit with a “cannot connect. too many requests from this device” splash page, and the occasional crashing of the app are all areas that need to be addressed. On top of that, the need to download several apps makes no sense, when one could do the job of all four (PS Apps, Messages, Remote Play, Communities). 2 stars for me.
Nearly useless
by Akkuratno on 2019/11/03 11:49
The app is nearly useless. You cant even buy and download game from it - you need to download it from a desktop version of ps store. It fails Every time I try to use this app hoping it will help me. Can’t understand how a corporation like sony made so lame thing

New feature idea
by Richard_1400 on 2019/03/04 22:23
A new feature idea that I think is needed is the ability to view your capture gallery to see everything you’ve saved from your gameplay. I think it is needed because if someone wants to show someone their gameplay and they don’t have their PlayStation with them and if they are in a car they can’t really show them unless you had this option you will be able to view the gameplay you’ve saved and be able to show your friends a cool clip, general gameplay, etc. If you guys are able to add this feature it would be greatly appreciated thank you.
Not as good as it used to be!
by CoolGuyDennis on 2017/11/22 21:00
The app itself has grown as far as U.I. For example, the Playstation Store is now easier to navigate and find, such as most everything in the app, but I give it such a low rating because, for me, the past version of this app had two really important features that kept me using this app often. The first feature is the where it allows you to turn on and off your PlayStation while connected to the same Wi-Fi as your PlayStation. I used to always do this when I was too lazy to get up and turn it off while I was laying in bed on my phone, but now this feature is gone. Not only this, but another feature with the ability to text other players and friends is gone as well. They have another app for these features, but it would be such an inconvenience to download two different apps to do the same thing you used to be able to do in one app, and thus this justifies my rating of the app. One star for one feature plus one extra star for the importance of the features.
Not a bad app but needs improvements
by TheRealZcamYT on 2019/01/02 23:48
This app is good but it needs improvements like if someone invites you to a party, and you don’t have a mic to connect to your controller. This is a repeating problem, but with my suggestion. It’s to add a function of joining your friends party or heck even having a function even having a mic setting and yet you can’t use it. Here’s another improvement that I suggest, Make sure that if you get an invite to the party, you can actually join the party and chat not giving us the option to get a mic. No doing that., just makes it a waste of time. Do the most good thing and do it. Don’t leave the people without mics. Make sure that they get the best gift from you Sony. Do these improvements and you won’t have a BAD rating. That’s why I’m giving Sony and the PlayStation app, a 3.5 stars. If you do these improvements I’ll even give you a 5.5 out of 5 for making the best app. So without furthermore I bid you a farewell.
🤔
by JDHMC GAMING on 2018/05/16 20:55
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 on 2018/05/16 18:11
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!

When I first started using the PlayStation app it worked very well because I would only use it to check which of my friends were online when I was away. Now however I want to be able to look at what I have clipped on my PlayStation to be able to show people. But sadly that is not a feature on the PlayStation app. Another thing is that PlayStation makes 5 different apps (messages, second screen, vue, the actual PlayStation app and communities) when all these could just be one app. On top of this is have 3 of the above apps and every time there is a update I have to log back in on all 3 apps and go through 3 different spam tests which are just downright annoying. Finally when I go to access the PlayStation store I am taken to a website that for the most part is hard to work and confusing. In the end until Sony makes a better app that works well on iPhones and is all one big app I and many other users will be forced have limited use.
Review Update
by STARSCREAM1 F22 on 2017/12/29 05:39
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.
Biggest joke ever
by a guy who reviews stuff on 2019/01/06 16:32
I just bought an Xbox. After dealing with this terrible app that keeps getting split apart, it was an absolute joy using the singular Xbox app. It is fast, it works, it is comprehensive, and I can even join parties from my phone. The PlayStation app is a complete and utter joke. It barely works. It lags. Sony can’t even manage to put all of the functionality into one app, splitting it up into several. It is constantly making me sign in again. I swear to god, every third time I open the app I have to sign in. I have had to sign into the Xbox app exactly one time. Basically, Sony doesn’t know how to make an app. You might not think that’s a big deal, but think about it. If they can’t manage this, how well do you think they’re managing other things like security? Probably not well. Originally I got the Xbox only for backwards compatibility, but after seeing how many things Xbox does better than PlayStation, I am switching over entirely.
(Updated) Worked okay at first, completely bugged now
by Kevinthegreatest8463 on 2017/11/08 23:20
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 on 2018/06/11 21:35
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.
Won't allow me to sign in
by Tony2Truuu on 2018/10/17 23:02
I downloaded the PlayStation app because I recently switched from Microsoft to Sony. Since that day I have had a number of consistent issues. The first issue was my home screen on my system has a huge lag. This lag was so bad that it would freeze my system. After that Sony was going through a number of service issues. One of which it didn't allow me login to my account. I digitally downloaded all of my games so now I can't access any of my games because My account is linked to games. Then this whole time this app won't allow me to sign in but I can sign in on the web browser.🤷🏿‍♂️ so I have a few problems with Sony for the moment. They did fix the network issues but the app still won't allow me to sign in. The are you a robot prompt just keeps spinning. So the sign in button will not highlight. Please fix this issue I don't really like Microsoft.
Playstation app review
by The Apple User that cares on 2017/11/14 14:18
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
A functioning back button
by Projectluthor on 2019/07/13 09:33
The app has a lot of issues. Some of issues can easily be fixed. I develop and work in apps for a living. Perhaps you should consider reaching out to professionals to improve apps functionality. Back button once in the store does not function as expected (do you have QE team??). This is a serious flaw. App store kart sometimes is not in sync with games selected. Buggy purchasing function. Overall end to end is buggy. It can be fixed or improved if Sony gave this light of day and invested in making the experience better. Until then, I am not recommending this app. What is the point of have 2 apps, one for messaging friends and other for shopping. Can this be packaged as one app. Xbox app is really well organized and functionality is really a good experience. Take a leaf from that page.
It honestly gets worst
by MitchTheBossMan (Youtuber) on 2018/08/02 07:01
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 on 2018/02/04 15:03
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 on 2018/03/18 21:23
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.
PlayStation App
by Geefromsp69 on 2019/08/15 20:28
I have been a PlayStation fan since the very begin I am a brand loyalist and one of the most knowledgeable gamers from the early 90’s. My only complaint is that the remote play option doesn’t offer a separate screen option for playing multiplayer... while I’m playing with a friend who is on my PlayStation why should my remote play be split screen? Also I wish PlayStation has backwards compatibility... other then those to things the system and all its components controller and options and extras and apps work perfectly and offer me the best service for my dollar! I’ll always be a Sony Guy for life!!!
Great app. Needs improvement.
by SanicFanGuy on 2019/07/02 18:42
It’s a great easy to use app but there are some issues. Being able to access the basic features of my PS4 wherever is nice and all but there are some questionable choices here. Like messages being a separate feature. But one thing that I can’t ignore is HTML being used for pretty much everything. I’m sure there’s some perfectly understandable reason for doing this but it just doesn’t work for me. Whenever I’m going to go check out a free game I can feel the built in web browser about to collapse under it’s own weight. In fact. Any other time a developer has done this it’s been the same thing. It’s just broken. Rest of the app is fine and responsive though.
Hot Garbage on fire
by NinjaRunningWild on 2019/08/03 13:41
I keep having the vain & deluded hope that this app will improve, & it keeps getting dashed on the shores of reality. The store is now completely broken on iOS. You can't access your account or wishlist. Forget searching. That does nothing. Apparently they don't want my money. If they're going to update their underlying site design, they need to finish it & QA it PRIOR to going live with it. Sony's handling of web content is APPALLINGLY BAD. It's shameful. If you want empirical evidence that the Japanese do NOT understand the Internet, this is it. Great job guys... Older review : Beginning in 2019 every attempt to login results with some sort of error. I've attempted multiple solutions to no avail. I can login on my PS3 or PS4 no problem, but not this app. Clearly something is wrong on Sony's end & trying to troubleshoot their error isn't how I want to spend my valuable time.
More features needed!
by Medvi Hartoonian on 2019/07/24 11:14
Add more features such as checking your PS4’s download queue, or checking how much storage is remaining. You could also make the PS Store native in the app instead of having it load as a web version in the app. Having the ability to purchase a game in the app and making it download to your PlayStation remotely would be amazing. While this is already possible, you have to use the PlayStation store website and it doesn’t work half the time, the status doesn’t update in time and error messages are never shown, making the user believe that everything is going alright. Adding these features is going to make this app much better and provide a much better experience.
Needs some improvements
by MarcMatta123 on 2018/11/10 17:53
I just got a PS4 four days ago, and the last time I heard of this app was before two of the most important features are gone. Now I have already read another review talking about the same thing, but I was even more disappointed because now I need to get out of my bed, turn off the PS4 and go back to bed (the feature on question is that you can turn off your PS4 from your phone if they’re connected to the same WiFi), and I need to keep on switching between the apps (the feature in question is being able to send msgs from this app, but now there is a different app for this). So I hope they add at least the feature where I can turn off my PS4 from my phone, because that would make life so much easier.
Absolutely clean and user friendly!!!
by YoYoHonaySingh#King on 2017/11/10 04:13
I know that many people will continue to criticize this app regardless of how many updates come out, but they can not deny the fact that the last update is one the best that this app has had so far. The new updates removes all the clutter and unnecessary junk that plagued the old updates and it also greatly improves the loading speeds. The UI is much more friendly since all the shortcuts are on the bottom; In addition, the app runs much smoother than before. The PlayStation app is finally feeling like the app that it should have been!
One Feature
by Givedamnsushi on 2019/02/18 10:14
I believe the gallery of screenshots and recordings from your actual PlayStation account should be added to this PlayStation app, and maybe a shareable button to share your gameplays on more platforms of social media. This is mostly because it could be an efficient way to get to your gallery than actually going on your console just to retrieve what you wanted to see and everyone has their phone on them but not their PlayStations :) if this feature is already added, just let me know where I can find it. Sorry I don't have very valid reasons... I just really want this feature
This app has access to everything but is missing something...
by chris_a167167 on 2019/11/09 20:42
This app is very useful when you're not home. I feel that as someone who spends a lot of my free time on PS4, there are the times that I am away from my console. I feel that just like many apps that have this feature I feel that the PS App and PS Messages need this too: dark mode. I feel that it will improve the overall user experience that comes with PS App and PS Messages. I would really love to see this feature come around soon and I think a lot of people would say the same. Still a pretty great app.
Basic things are dysfunctional...
by glevan98 on 2019/06/10 13:20
I love my PlayStation, but the app is just messed up. For example, I’m in the car on a two hour drive and saw some good deals on the PS store. So I figured I’d buy some new games to come home to. I proceed to the checkout and select my payment method(my debt card information was already put in). So I go to pay and it asks for the CVV. I go ahead and type it in, but apparently it was wrong... I looked everything over and made sure I hade everything correct, but it was still wrong. So instead of buying some good games that are on sale I have to miss out because a basic tool doesn’t work. You’d think that’d be the most important thing any company would capitalize on also since it’s a source of getting money.
To be honest, here’s what I think.
by M/miles👍🏻 on 2018/07/18 12:20
This app is awesome, I use it if I have to go on vacation or if I’m away from my PS4, this app let me search the store and download games when I’m away, this app is pretty legit, but here’s one thing I have to say: One time all the features were combined, but, they turned into separate apps, i’m not complaining. (i’m just saying most people are talking about it and I want to talk about this as well) Hey, at least I can see Games when I’m gone, this app is pretty much a must buy if you’re going on vacation, you should download the app first before downloading the second apps, therefore this app is amazing.
Super fraudulent... watch out!
by Iwies on 2018/11/07 10:13
It will only approve your payment details if above a certain amount. I live in two different countries, tried two different region’s profiles. 3 different payment methods on each(and I buy stuff online all the time) and it kept declining until I made my amount higher. ALSO has super false advertising to the MAX. You won’t be able to get the packages they offer if it’s too “cheap” in example : 14 day free trial. (After my paypal account was successfully linked AND a bank card. It kept denying purchase) Also their web app and phone app is horrible. It keeps lagging, throws errors, their bad security measures makes everything such a hassle. What exactly do PSN’s programmers do all day??? - Think of ways to scam and definitely don’t update their user experience is what I think.
Great
by Cfgdhhddlkfr on 2018/12/06 23:45
I love the app, you can do a lot on here from seeing who’s online to checking if that new game’s price dropped yet. One thing they should add in my opinion is to check/download/pause your downloads. This could be very useful because many times I go on my ps4, hoping I updated a game, and unfortunately seeing that it didn’t. Also a lot of times I turn my ps4 into rest mode for it to go faster, and of course I don’t know how long it needs to take. I turn it back on and the download meter’s moved an inch. I would really appreciate if you would add this to the app. The PlayStation app is near perfect.
If only...
by Riggsc12 on 2017/12/01 07:51
Here’s the thing, the only thing that works is the home page of the app. After that, if you try to see other pages (I.e. friends, notifications, requests) and after waiting for 3-5 minutes just to hope it loads, it will say it can’t load and that an error has happened. I thought it was my internet or service but I was wrong, the app just doesn’t work. It looks pretty, it’ll send you phone notifications that someone messaged you or sent you a request, but it won’t work. Plus I find it ridiculous that you have to download 4 different PlayStation apps for your phone. This terrible one, an app to access your messages on your PlayStation, and so on. It’s stupid and wastes your storage. I wouldn’t recommend this app for you or anyone else.
It’s gotten so much better over the years.
by AustinKv on 2019/08/23 19:04
I’ve been using this app for years. This app has had a lot of improvements over the years and it now works very efficiently and is incredibly user friendly. Highly Recommend to anyone that keeps up to date with the PS Network in general. You can download games to your PlayStation from your phone (very cool feature). The only downside is if you want to read and or respond to your messages on PS Network, you will have to get their separate messenger app. The Messenger app works well also. Recommend to any daily gamer that plays on PS4.
I enjoy the app except for three things
by Monirek on 2019/10/13 16:46
For one, the app doesn’t show you which hidden trophy a friend has earned on the news feed. For example, my friend earned a hidden trophy on The Last of Us Remastered and I don’t know which one even though I have the platinum for this game. Secondly, after selecting a game in a friend’s trophy list, it shows us our own trophies instead of theirs! Thirdly, I would like to see my trophy list without the games I’ve hidden so that so I can see my trophy list as it appears to other players. If these three things changed the app would be much better.
Needs Update
by CamWhyYouHoMe on 2018/01/19 04:26
App is easy to use and simple just like most people like. But I give it two stars for the simple fact I’m running a IPhone X and when people are online it’s all kind of jumbled up or smashed together one on another. You can still see who is Online just because how it’s separated by title of Online and offline, but it’s not a pretty site. The app moves fast no lag nor do I have app closure problems as well. So I’m a visual person, once that is fixed you will have a 5 Star app. OH! Almost forgot, and please bring back the feature of turning your PS4 on or off via the app. I used to use this all the time when I was coming home and downstairs I could already have my PS4 on waiting for me.
Great app just one more thing to make it 5stars
by Yt-AlmightyZae on 2019/07/02 15:56
This app it great for a lot of stuff to text on your phone or tablet without being at your PlayStation but it does need 2 things to make this a 5Star app. First allow us to be in party’s and just chat with friends without having to be at our PlayStation. The next one is to please please let us view our clips/ show our clips to one another on the app that would be so helpful and cool because you can interact more with the online players. THANKS For reading and I hope this can get put into the app thanks👍
Update
by Camron1207 on 2018/07/22 23:52
The app so far has been far good, it has been great. But the app could be even better by updating that app, by adding in a feature where you can look at all of your saved clips and pictures from your PS4. Most of the time when you want to show your friend a cool clip u have to be on the PS4 then record it on your phone. With adding a feature where the PlayStation community can show clips and pictures to there friends through the phone would be very useful. This will draw more people to PlayStation and also downloading the app, hopefully the Sony can add this feature which will really benefit the community.
We need to have gallery in the app
by Jojoriel on 2019/09/22 05:26
This app needs to include something else... When are we going be able to see our gallery of photos and videos??! I mean... it would be cool if we can show our friends videos of ourselves playing games in our phone’s (gameplays) Also this would benefit a lot to all the people that edit on phones because they would be able to transport the video from the app through they’re edit app. But honestly this app is pretty amazing and easy to use. I can check my notifications , I can purchase games, even use my phone as a controller. That’s why I rate this app a 4 out of 5 .
New feature required
by Codeman1976 on 2019/11/28 04:40
This is a good app for messaging single or multiple users in one message. I have been using it for years and use it on a daily basis. Some may complain about the breakup of the different aspects of previous versions, but it is better this way (IMO). The one option I have always wanted was the ability to not only add new recipients to a group message, but also to be able to remove individuals from a group message. If you are just wanting an app that is a messaging app, this is the one for you.
REALLY GOOD APP
by huguy02 on 2019/10/04 10:53
I like this app because it’s the perfect thing to communicate with your friends if you’re not on your PlayStation 4 and also you still could have access to anything like your profile and privacy settings trophies and you could check which friends of yours are online and which are not and you could add people even if you’re not on your PlayStation 4 and the reason I like this app is because it’s just like if your on your PlayStation 4 so I thank the PlayStation for this really good app
Good to have but needs work
by this nickname is unavailable please choose another on 2018/07/21 21:39
I love having an app to access my PSN account to make changes etc, but it feels like it’s just the mobile website contained in an app, which I might as well just access through a browser. Biggest issue is the UI set up. The PS “button” feels unnecessary when there could just be a separate page to access the same list of options. The store and store search options need a lot of help. Really just feels like a buggy mobile site, and the search function is very limited. I really appreciate that PlayStation is trying integrate smartphone use with their console, but it really just needs to be updated and streamlined.
Great app but..
by Jeff22* on 2019/06/14 20:00
This a a great app, your able to see which friends of yours are on pan and what they are playing. You can go into the psn store and purchase games and set them to download but if could change it in anyway it would be to add a feature to where if you're downloading a game and away from the tv or not at home at the time you could check on the progress of the download. I have to switch over to my PlayStation to see how far along the download is. It would be awesome to be able to see it from your phone
Great app
by slider2780 on 2018/09/27 06:24
The PlayStation app is amazing and has almost everything I want. That is why I have it a 4 star. The one thing that I would like to see in the future is having the video/screen shots from the users gallery accessible from this app. I know many times where I wanted to show my friends this amazing clip I have but I cannot because it is not available to me other than on my PlayStation or if I download it and wait 30 minuets. This isn’t a need but if would be a great accessory to this app if it would be included in the future.
Does not ever open on the first try
by thezo04 on 2019/01/11 14:35
Every time I open the app after a day of not using it I will get the blue loading screen and nothing else happens. It does not matter if I wait 5 seconds or 30 seconds. Without fail, if I close out of the app and launch it again, it opens almost immediately. I don’t know why it takes two tries to launch the app but if this bug were fixed this would be a five star app all day. I have no other complaints.
still needs fixing
by JayLrog on 2018/12/02 16:43
why is there like 5 different apps when you could literally combine everything into one simple app and make it less complicated? i don’t like xbox but xbox definitely has the better app in my opinion. this app needs a lot of fixing. and it needs to have a playstation store within the app, i don’t want to app to go to safari and look up playstation store to access it. ALSO playstation store online needs an update. it’s always looked the same, change it up a bit, it’s not very smooth or pleasing to the eye. Like xbox we should have an option to join a party from our app AND messaging should have a better look.
Makes Everything Easier
by JenniHasAPanda on 2019/04/12 06:44
There’ll be times where I’ll be in the middle of a game, either online or single-player, and having all three PS apps (Messaging, PS App, Communities) makes it super convenient to check things and message back quickly rather than having to go through the trouble of stopping in the middle of your gaming to check on your console. Everything is easier to access: profiles, trophies, messages, this app practically does it all. 10/10.
Works intermittently
by Dbpope23 on 2019/04/06 15:54
One day the app will open and run like a champ. Then it will give me an error message for the next 6 weeks. I work out of town and on the road a lot so I enjoyed being able to purchase a game and be able to come home to a new game. Now with all the “updates” done to this app, I can almost always count on it to fail. On the off chance it successfully opens and runs as intended I thoroughly enjoy the app and all its qualities. I have force closed the app, deleted cleared and reinstalled, and nothing seems to work. Maybe when the ps5 launches we will get an update that takes us all one step ahead instead of 2 steps back.
Better...
by Susanoo83 on 2018/05/02 15:02
The What’s New section is amazing! It’s basically like Facebook without the Zuckerberg, meaning the garbage that come’s along FB. Share your games and achievements, with just your friends or everyone around you. Tell one or two jokes, talk about an experience that someone “might” be able to relate. Should I dare say go as far as making a new friend, or two. PlayStation is an amazingly, awesome place and the What’s New section is an absolute delight. FaceBook is....ummm meh, but the PlayStation What’s New app is better.
PS4 is Great!! I love my PS4!
by Supertrick21 on 2019/03/01 20:42
So, I was originally on Xbox and I was getting tired to pay 60 dollars a year for the Xbox live thing. So, I switched over to Playstation4 and things changed. I was twice as good in the PlayStation and yeah! It’s not as interactive as the Xbox app, but still very good and it gets the job done. I rate my score a 5/5 because it really good and I have no issues of playing around with the app. If you guys are looking for a good game console, definitely the Ps4 is a good buy for the price, I also have the PS4 slim 1TB version.
Even the bugs are inconsistent, just like the app
by Marcus Bruno33 on 2018/02/23 23:17
For a company that makes millions every year having a buggy mess of a app on the App Store just boggles my mind. I’m trying to make a PURCHASE. I’m trying to GIVE YOU MONEY and is asking for my CVV number and it’s telling me it’s incorrect. Really? What’s the point of having the app on my phone if I can’t download a game right now so when I get home is available?? I thought it had this purpose in mind when Sony decided to make this app. And don’t get me started on the PS messaging app. I send a reply to my group only to find out later that it actually didn’t send my message. How hard is to make a funcional app Sony? You full of bling!
Ok
by Chr1ztopher on 2017/11/07 19:55
So I’m not sure if this is a bug or by design but I can’t get the app to go into landscape, it just stays in portrait mode. This would be fine on a phone but it makes switching between the messaging app, community app and this one very awkward on an iPad. I’ll be responding to a message in landscape then go to check something on the this app and I’ll have to put down my controller, pick up the iPad and turn it on its side because the app is only displayed in portrait. Having to do this over and over gets annoying. Aside from this it works great in a phone scenario and I do like the new PS button.
Great Ideas, Poor Execution. (Stripped Features)

First of all, it’s really nice for them to have created this app to being with. It has a ton of great features! That being said, not only is the optimization of the app as a whole, terrible; They have stripped features that were previous available. The worst offender of these is the omission of the messaging app within the main app. They seem to think they need to separate the two but in reality, they just want more revenue from downloads so they split the two features in different apps. Dumb decision. I’m also rating low because a lot of the buttons writhing the store section of the app straight up don’t work. I cannot use the search function at all. Even if I convert it to desktop mode, the search bar never shows up. Please fix this or I’ll just remove the app altogether. This used to be such a great app and almost necessary to own as a ps4 owner. Now it’s a hot fart on a humid day. Please fix the issues addressed and try a little harder next time.

PlayStation more like gaystation. This app doesn’t even work. No wonder I stuck to Xbox
Poggers.
by Saggy Grundle on 2019/12/12 19:32
Can see when the boys are online. Get party notifications, messages, and updates on trophies and activities of friends. Works better than the Playstation itself. Makes profile and management smoother and adds a few more capabilities. It’s awesome
Only works on wifi, even then only half the time
by TaraTrill on 2019/12/12 12:24
As stated in the title, the app will not load unless on wifi. Then when on wifi, majority of the time it tells me I have had too many requests to the server from my phone just for checking the app. This app is not usable. It would be great but only if devs would fix these issues that have been ongoing for a very long time.
Ehh
by KiddTone18 on 2019/12/12 10:43
Over all I think the app is great but the app needs a lil fix, everytine I open the app it’ll either crash or just not open when I tap a notifications.
Awesome App
by ALKATRAZ187 on 2019/12/11 09:31
I love PlayStation and I love this app.
Nonfunctional
by Psyousuckballs on 2019/12/08 15:15
APP no longer opens after update. You get an error message and it stays on the blue screen.
The app is alright but very frustrating
by Prettysweet555 on 2019/12/08 02:13
I don’t understand why I have to open and close the app 5-6 times just for the app to actually start up. When you originally open the app it just stays on the PlayStation logo and then crashes the app OVER AND OVER AGAIN until you open it and get lucky! Please fix

Update???

Pointless
by souljaj on 2019/12/06 10:24
Always comes up with can’t connect to network! It’s pointless to even have this app! Just shows how Xbox is the better system then ps! Get you crap together PlayStation!
Clips
by hdhshsva. s s on 2019/12/06 03:29
They need to add where you could view your clips like Xbox
Needs access to the video gallery
by Anden8910 on 2019/12/06 02:13
The app could really use a feature that you can access you clips from anywhere, I would use the app much more often if it did.

by Mr.crayon on 2019/12/04 11:52
You can’t see the progress on the games you are downloading on your PS4 that gets annoying cus people like me who can’t play all the time just want to see if the game is done

Can’t Sign in
by Florkerta on 2019/12/03 05:30
I’m unable to sign into the store to view my profile, wishlist, etc. you tap the “Sign in” option in the type right corner and it just reverts back to the same thing. Needs to be fixed. Other than that, it’s a great app
Bad customer service

by Pharoa smuthercawk on 2019/12/02 07:49
The ui looks like a lesser quality facebook and doesn’t even have night mode, not to be bias but i like my ps4 more than my xbox but the app for the xbox is detailed and customizable atleast.
Add something else more
by Theangrygrandpashow youtube on 2019/12/02 07:38
PS4 should add a feature where you can watch your friends play a game on the ps4 from there ps4 consoles and there smartphone device and others without using a live streaming.

Good app, but please just put all the apps in one!!!

Party Chat

Make a thing were you can join party chat on the app
Please add a party compatibility with Phones
by BhristianBhavez on 2019/11/30 17:13
The app is great and all but when are we gonna be able to join a party while on the phone. The Xbox app has this and I wish That Sony or w.e runs the app can add this part of compatibility to the app.
It’s aight

New feature required
by Codeman1976 on 2019/11/28 04:40
This is a good app for messaging single or multiple users in one message. I have been using it for years and use it on a daily basis. Some may complain about the breakup of the different aspects of previous versions, but it is better this way (IMO). The one option I have always wanted was the ability to not only add new recipients to a group message, but also to be able to remove individuals from a group message. If you are just wanting an app that is a messaging app, this is the one for you.
Great
by me100xbetter on 2019/11/28 04:37
Would be better if you could notifications from completion of applications.
Problem to log in.
by Alex3250 on 2019/11/28 03:05
When I go to this app to go to the store it won’t log me in. Especially that it won’t let me buy anything. Can you go fin the problem and fix it.

Authentication mechanism is trash
by WHDough on 2019/11/27 01:24
Huge PlayStation fan. The app is actually well designed from a UI perspective. However I frequently have to change settings for my kids re: play duration etc. In order to do so I have to reauthenticate every time. It is a 10 step process even if you save your password in the keychain, if you don’t, you’ll spend an extra 3-5 steps identifying stop lights, store fronts, etc. It’s ridiculously excessive. Why not use 2 factor auth from a credential supplier like Okta or Google. The authentication method is clunky and antiquated. But mostly it’s just a pain in the tail.
PlayStation
by I'l break yo Ankles on 2019/11/26 06:14
I hate how you have to download so many apps for PS4 just to send messages and things like that. I hate how you have no access to your clips. This app is lucky for me to give them two stars

I can’t use App. Text too small. User interface is awful 1. I can’t go back from game page. I can only close store 2. No button View all games in categories - Only for you! 2. Why homepage store offers me games that will releases in 200 days? Homepage should offer tops and sales. Completely unprofessional App.

Annoying and constantly being signed out
by Lady pumpkins on 2019/11/21 15:54
I’d negative review if I could. This app literally never keeps me logged in. Like I’m sick of constantly needing to resign in every single time I want to send a dumb message. This SET of apps numbs my mind with how ignorant they are.
Very poor experience.
by ADofCLE on 2019/11/20 20:33
The app entirely too slow, and needs a much better design (see the Xbox app). The PS Store, is just a wrapped web page, which it’s self is horrible, and buggy. Also, I can’t even sign into my account. There should be an actual store, built into the application (again, see the Xbox app).
Broken sign in
by Turk8484 on 2019/11/19 05:47
This app was great now I can’t sign in at all through the app. So I’m not able to buy any game through the app. I hit sign in and all it does is load up and then stays on the page I was already on. Even uninstalling it and reinstalling it nothing works.

Capture gallery
by dethebeast on 2019/11/16 21:18
I really like how it is now but sense its the psn app make it where u can access all of the apps on the psn but not the games of course but really the capture gallery so we can up load our trophies, screenshots and videos on the network and access the gallery it self so we can also up load our trophies, screenshots, and videos on to social media. So I really recommend adding this to the app or making a app for it

by Achillesye on 2019/11/15 13:33
There’s one major flaw that irritates me every time I use the app. It’s that It constantly disconnects you from the server and you have to type your info all over again. It’s not very consistent either. Sometimes it lets me go 20 minutes other time 2 minutes. Only thing stoping it from being amazing.
great app

PlayStation app
by epic_gamer_1737 on 2019/11/15 00:35
Hey this app is very great if you use it a lot like every two days or more because if you don’t it signs you out and then you have to get the email and it some times takes a little bit and the message should just be built in to this app instead of having to have two different apps but other then that this app is very good
Slow

by Lopez.22 on 2019/11/14 01:12
This is random but has anyone’s PlayStation app been acting up. Like my what’s new section doesn’t show any description. I can see when my friends get trophies and stuff but above the trophy where it says “xyz has achieved a trophy “ or “xyz played this for the first time” is blank. They should look into it. I’ve seen someone else posted about it but no answers.

It does what its use for

Love it!
by tjd3 on 2019/11/13 03:02
It’s a very good app, my only wish is that PlayStation adds messaging and has it one app like Xbox, where you can do it all at once. Instead of having to download two apps.
terrible
by yousukTB on 2019/11/12 14:20
consistently doesn’t work, always have login issues. while signed in every time i try to block or report spam it says im not signed in and gives no option to sign in, but i am in fact signed in! it’s also pretty stupid they have 5 apps instead of 1 like xbox, steam, and switch. poorly designed in every way!

by nigel93763 on 2019/11/10 20:27
Be ready to install 5 more applications for the full experience. Also cannot check progress of any update or download through app( even through WIFI, obviously). The PS store isn’t even integrated into the app, you get sent to safari through the app🙄. Unless you’re a streamer of some sort this app helps, otherwise your ‘activity’ is a bunch of achievements.

by chris_a167167 on 2019/11/09 20:42
This app is very useful when you're not home. I feel that as someone who spends a lot of my free time on PS4, there are the times that I am away from my console. I feel that just like many apps that have this feature I feel that the PS App and PS Messages need this too: dark mode. I feel that it will improve the overall user experience that comes with PS App and PS Messages. I would really love to see this feature come around soon and I think a lot of people would say the same. Still a pretty great app.
Frickdaddy
by iAmFrickDaddy on 2019/11/09 18:58
Not user friendly. Removing friends and using parental controls is tedious to say the least. I put controls on the PS4 and I’m unable to control the Time limit.. I set it but the game continues allowing the user to play. What’s the point of a time limit if it doesn’t lock the account from playing after setting is maxed. PS4 parental controls are useless.
Great app but...
by Scrappn on 2019/11/08 16:05
The one thing that the Xbox app has over us playstation lovers is that they can save clips straight to their phone and not have to post on external sights like YouTube and twitter just to download our clip we need a way to save it to our phone easier.
Forced Log-In
by Christians Light on 2019/11/08 06:22
It keeps forcing me to log in every time I open the app. Is this supposed to be a thing?
Good.
by DEANOSBRATS on 2019/11/07 21:36
Its a great app to buy games when not home and to sort out your profile... only issue is getting signed out of your account for no reason at times. Forcing you to put in your info again, and again.

The app was functioning properly when I first downloaded it, 2 years ago, but for the past year I haven’t been to successfully sign into the app. I’ve kept the app in hopes that it was a bug that would eventually get fixed but here I am.. still not able to use the app. I’m an iPhone XS Max user.

Riddled with bugs, surprised there are so many 5 star reviews.
by HopefuIIyThisNicknameIsntTaken on 2019/11/05 11:51
Great looking app on the cover but once you actually start using it you’ll notice tons of bugs that really dampens the experience. Having to re-login every other day, not being able to scroll through your friend’s list without getting hit with a “cannot connect. too many requests from this device” splash page, and the occasional crashing of the app are all areas that need to be addressed. On top of that, the need to download several apps makes no sense, when one could do the job of all four (PS Apps, Messages, Remote Play, Communities). 2 stars for me.
Nearly useless
by Akkuratno on 2019/11/03 11:49
The app is nearly useless. You cant even buy and download game from it - you need to download it from a desktop version of ps store. It fails Every time I try to use this app hoping it will help me. Can’t understand how a corporation like sony made so lame thing

New feature idea
by Richard_1400 on 2019/03/04 22:23
A new feature idea that I think is needed is the ability to view your capture gallery to see everything you’ve saved from your gameplay. I think it is needed because if someone wants to show someone their gameplay and they don’t have their PlayStation with them and if they are in a car they can’t really show them unless you had this option you will be able to view the gameplay you’ve saved and be able to show your friends a cool clip, general gameplay, etc. If you guys are able to add this feature it would be greatly appreciated thank you.
Not as good as it used to be!
by CoolGuyDennis on 2017/11/22 21:00
The app itself has grown as far as U.I. For example, the Playstation Store is now easier to navigate and find, such as most everything in the app, but I give it such a low rating because, for me, the past version of this app had two really important features that kept me using this app often. The first feature is the where it allows you to turn on and off your PlayStation while connected to the same Wi-Fi as your PlayStation. I used to always do this when I was too lazy to get up and turn it off while I was laying in bed on my phone, but now this feature is gone. Not only this, but another feature with the ability to text other players and friends is gone as well. They have another app for these features, but it would be such an inconvenience to download two different apps to do the same thing you used to be able to do in one app, and thus this justifies my rating of the app. One star for one feature plus one extra star for the importance of the features.
Not a bad app but needs improvements

This app is good but it needs improvements like if someone invites you to a party, and you don’t have a mic to connect to your controller. This is a repeating problem, but with my suggestion. It’s to add a function of joining your friends party or heck even having a function even having a mic setting and yet you can’t use it. Here’s another improvement that I suggest, Make sure that if you get an invite to the party, you can actually join the party and chat not giving us the option to get a mic. No doing that., just makes it a waste of time. Do the most good thing and do it. Don’t leave the people without mics. Make sure that they get the best gift from you Sony. Do these improvements and you won’t have a BAD rating. That’s why I’m giving Sony and the PlayStation app, a 3.5 stars. If you do these improvements I’ll even give you a 5.5 out of 5 for making the best app. So without furthermore I bid you a farewell.
🤔

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 on 2018/05/16 18:11
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!
Poor quality
by WILLL____ on 2018/11/26 02:24
When I first started using the PlayStation app it worked very well because I would only use it to check which of my friends were online when I was away. Now however I want to be able to look at what I have clipped on my PlayStation to be able to show people. But sadly that is not a feature on the PlayStation app. Another thing is that PlayStation makes 5 different apps (messages, second screen, vue, the actual PlayStation app and communities) when all these could just be one app. On top of this is have 3 of the above apps and every time there is a update I have to log back in on all 3 apps and go through 3 different spam tests which are just downright annoying. Finally when I go to access the PlayStation store I am taken to a website that for the most part is hard to work and confusing. In the end until Sony makes a better app that works well on iPhones and is all one big app I and many other users will be forced have limited use.
Review Update
by STARSCREAM1 F22 on 2017/12/29 05:39
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.
Biggest joke ever
by a guy who reviews stuff on 2019/01/06 16:32
I just bought an Xbox. After dealing with this terrible app that keeps getting split apart, it was an absolute joy using the singular Xbox app. It is fast, it works, it is comprehensive, and I can even join parties from my phone. The PlayStation app is a complete and utter joke. It barely works. It lags. Sony can’t even manage to put all of the functionality into one app, splitting it up into several. It is constantly making me sign in again. I swear to god, every third time I open the app I have to sign in. I have had to sign into the Xbox app exactly one time. Basically, Sony doesn’t know how to make an app. You might not think that’s a big deal, but think about it. If they can’t manage this, how well do you think they’re managing other things like security? Probably not well. Originally I got the Xbox only for backwards compatibility, but after seeing how many things Xbox does better than PlayStation, I am switching over entirely.
(Updated) Worked okay at first, completely bugged now
by Kevinthegreatest8463 on 2017/11/08 23:20
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 on 2018/06/11 21:35
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.
Won't allow me to sign in
by Tony2Truuu on 2018/10/17 23:02
I downloaded the PlayStation app because I recently switched from Microsoft to Sony. Since that day I have had a number of consistent issues. The first issue was my home screen on my system has a huge lag. This lag was so bad that it would freeze my system. After that Sony was going through a number of service issues. One of which it didn't allow me login to my account. I digitally downloaded all of my games so now I can't access any of my games because My account is linked to games. Then this whole time this app won't allow me to sign in but I can sign in on the web browser.🤷🏿‍♂️ so I have a few problems with Sony for the moment. They did fix the network issues but the app still won't allow me to sign in. The are you a robot prompt just keeps spinning. So the sign in button will not highlight. Please fix this issue I don't really like Microsoft.
Playstation app review
by The Apple User that cares on 2017/11/14 14:18
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
A functioning back button
by Projectluthor on 2019/07/13 09:33
The app has a lot of issues. Some of issues can easily be fixed. I develop and work in apps for a living. Perhaps you should consider reaching out to professionals to improve apps functionality. Back button once in the store does not function as expected (do you have QE team??). This is a serious flaw. App store kart sometimes is not in sync with games selected. Buggy purchasing function. Overall end to end is buggy. It can be fixed or improved if Sony gave this light of day and invested in making the experience better. Until then, I am not recommending this app. What is the point of have 2 apps, one for messaging friends and other for shopping. Can this be packaged as one app. Xbox app is really well organized and functionality is really a good experience. Take a leaf from that page.
It honestly gets worst
by MitchTheBossMan (Youtuber) on 2018/08/02 07:01
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 on 2018/02/04 15:03
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 on 2018/03/18 21:23
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.
PlayStation App
by Geefromsp69 on 2019/08/15 20:28
I have been a PlayStation fan since the very begin I am a brand loyalist and one of the most knowledgeable gamers from the early 90’s. My only complaint is that the remote play option doesn’t offer a separate screen option for playing multiplayer... while I’m playing with a friend who is on my PlayStation why should my remote play be split screen? Also I wish PlayStation has backwards compatibility... other then those to things the system and all its components controller and options and extras and apps work perfectly and offer me the best service for my dollar! I’ll always be a Sony Guy for life!!!
Great app. Needs improvement.
by SanicFanGuy on 2019/07/02 18:42
It’s a great easy to use app but there are some issues. Being able to access the basic features of my PS4 wherever is nice and all but there are some questionable choices here. Like messages being a separate feature. But one thing that I can’t ignore is HTML being used for pretty much everything. I’m sure there’s some perfectly understandable reason for doing this but it just doesn’t work for me. Whenever I’m going to go check out a free game I can feel the built in web browser about to collapse under it’s own weight. In fact. Any other time a developer has done this it’s been the same thing. It’s just broken. Rest of the app is fine and responsive though.
Hot Garbage on fire
by NinjaRunningWild on 2019/08/03 13:41
I keep having the vain & deluded hope that this app will improve, & it keeps getting dashed on the shores of reality. The store is now completely broken on iOS. You can't access your account or wishlist. Forget searching. That does nothing. Apparently they don't want my money. If they're going to update their underlying site design, they need to finish it & QA it PRIOR to going live with it. Sony's handling of web content is APPALLINGLY BAD. It's shameful. If you want empirical evidence that the Japanese do NOT understand the Internet, this is it. Great job guys... Older review : Beginning in 2019 every attempt to login results with some sort of error. I've attempted multiple solutions to no avail. I can login on my PS3 or PS4 no problem, but not this app. Clearly something is wrong on Sony's end & trying to troubleshoot their error isn't how I want to spend my valuable time.
More features needed!
by Medvi Hartoonian on 2019/07/24 11:14
Add more features such as checking your PS4’s download queue, or checking how much storage is remaining. You could also make the PS Store native in the app instead of having it load as a web version in the app. Having the ability to purchase a game in the app and making it download to your PlayStation remotely would be amazing. While this is already possible, you have to use the PlayStation store website and it doesn’t work half the time, the status doesn’t update in time and error messages are never shown, making the user believe that everything is going alright. Adding these features is going to make this app much better and provide a much better experience.
Needs some improvements
by MarcMatta123 on 2018/11/10 17:53
I just got a PS4 four days ago, and the last time I heard of this app was before two of the most important features are gone. Now I have already read another review talking about the same thing, but I was even more disappointed because now I need to get out of my bed, turn off the PS4 and go back to bed (the feature on question is that you can turn off your PS4 from your phone if they’re connected to the same WiFi), and I need to keep on switching between the apps (the feature in question is being able to send msgs from this app, but now there is a different app for this). So I hope they add at least the feature where I can turn off my PS4 from my phone, because that would make life so much easier.
Absolutely clean and user friendly!!!
by YoYoHonaySingh#King on 2017/11/10 04:13
I know that many people will continue to criticize this app regardless of how many updates come out, but they can not deny the fact that the last update is one the best that this app has had so far. The new updates removes all the clutter and unnecessary junk that plagued the old updates and it also greatly improves the loading speeds. The UI is much more friendly since all the shortcuts are on the bottom; In addition, the app runs much smoother than before. The PlayStation app is finally feeling like the app that it should have been!
One Feature
by Givedamnsushi on 2019/02/18 10:14
I believe the gallery of screenshots and recordings from your actual PlayStation account should be added to this PlayStation app, and maybe a shareable button to share your gameplays on more platforms of social media. This is mostly because it could be an efficient way to get to your gallery than actually going on your console just to retrieve what you wanted to see and everyone has their phone on them but not their PlayStations :) if this feature is already added, just let me know where I can find it. Sorry I don't have very valid reasons... I just really want this feature
This app has access to everything but is missing something...
by chris_a167167 on 2019/11/09 20:42
This app is very useful when you're not home. I feel that as someone who spends a lot of my free time on PS4, there are the times that I am away from my console. I feel that just like many apps that have this feature I feel that the PS App and PS Messages need this too: dark mode. I feel that it will improve the overall user experience that comes with PS App and PS Messages. I would really love to see this feature come around soon and I think a lot of people would say the same. Still a pretty great app.
Basic things are dysfunctional...
by glevan98 on 2019/06/10 13:20
I love my PlayStation, but the app is just messed up. For example, I’m in the car on a two hour drive and saw some good deals on the PS store. So I figured I’d buy some new games to come home to. I proceed to the checkout and select my payment method(my debt card information was already put in). So I go to pay and it asks for the CVV. I go ahead and type it in, but apparently it was wrong... I looked everything over and made sure I hade everything correct, but it was still wrong. So instead of buying some good games that are on sale I have to miss out because a basic tool doesn’t work. You’d think that’d be the most important thing any company would capitalize on also since it’s a source of getting money.
To be honest, here’s what I think.
by M/miles👍🏻 on 2018/07/18 12:20
This app is awesome, I use it if I have to go on vacation or if I’m away from my PS4, this app let me search the store and download games when I’m away, this app is pretty legit, but here’s one thing I have to say: One time all the features were combined, but, they turned into separate apps, i’m not complaining. (i’m just saying most people are talking about it and I want to talk about this as well) Hey, at least I can see Games when I’m gone, this app is pretty much a must buy if you’re going on vacation, you should download the app first before downloading the second apps, therefore this app is amazing.
Super fraudulent... watch out!
by Iwies on 2018/11/07 10:13
It will only approve your payment details if above a certain amount. I live in two different countries, tried two different region’s profiles. 3 different payment methods on each(and I buy stuff online all the time) and it kept declining until I made my amount higher. ALSO has super false advertising to the MAX. You won’t be able to get the packages they offer if it’s too “cheap” in example : 14 day free trial. (After my paypal account was successfully linked AND a bank card. It kept denying purchase) Also their web app and phone app is horrible. It keeps lagging, throws errors, their bad security measures makes everything such a hassle. What exactly do PSN’s programmers do all day??? - Think of ways to scam and definitely don’t update their user experience is what I think.
Great
by Cfgdhhddlkfr on 2018/12/06 23:45
I love the app, you can do a lot on here from seeing who’s online to checking if that new game’s price dropped yet. One thing they should add in my opinion is to check/download/pause your downloads. This could be very useful because many times I go on my ps4, hoping I updated a game, and unfortunately seeing that it didn’t. Also a lot of times I turn my ps4 into rest mode for it to go faster, and of course I don’t know how long it needs to take. I turn it back on and the download meter’s moved an inch. I would really appreciate if you would add this to the app. The PlayStation app is near perfect.
If only...
by Riggsc12 on 2017/12/01 07:51
Here’s the thing, the only thing that works is the home page of the app. After that, if you try to see other pages (I.e. friends, notifications, requests) and after waiting for 3-5 minutes just to hope it loads, it will say it can’t load and that an error has happened. I thought it was my internet or service but I was wrong, the app just doesn’t work. It looks pretty, it’ll send you phone notifications that someone messaged you or sent you a request, but it won’t work. Plus I find it ridiculous that you have to download 4 different PlayStation apps for your phone. This terrible one, an app to access your messages on your PlayStation, and so on. It’s stupid and wastes your storage. I wouldn’t recommend this app for you or anyone else.
It’s gotten so much better over the years.
by AustinKv on 2019/08/23 19:04
I’ve been using this app for years. This app has had a lot of improvements over the years and it now works very efficiently and is incredibly user friendly. Highly Recommend to anyone that keeps up to date with the PS Network in general. You can download games to your PlayStation from your phone (very cool feature). The only downside is if you want to read and or respond to your messages on PS Network, you will have to get their separate messenger app. The Messenger app works well also. Recommend to any daily gamer that plays on PS4.
I enjoy the app except for three things
by Monirek on 2019/10/13 16:46
For one, the app doesn’t show you which hidden trophy a friend has earned on the news feed. For example, my friend earned a hidden trophy on The Last of Us Remastered and I don’t know which one even though I have the platinum for this game. Secondly, after selecting a game in a friend’s trophy list, it shows us our own trophies instead of theirs! Thirdly, I would like to see my trophy list without the games I’ve hidden so that so I can see my trophy list as it appears to other players. If these three things changed the app would be much better.
Needs Update
by CamWhyYouHoMe on 2018/01/19 04:26
App is easy to use and simple just like most people like. But I give it two stars for the simple fact I’m running a IPhone X and when people are online it’s all kind of jumbled up or smashed together one on another. You can still see who is Online just because how it’s separated by title of Online and offline, but it’s not a pretty site. The app moves fast no lag nor do I have app closure problems as well. So I’m a visual person, once that is fixed you will have a 5 Star app. OH! Almost forgot, and please bring back the feature of turning your PS4 on or off via the app. I used to use this all the time when I was coming home and downstairs I could already have my PS4 on waiting for me.
Great app just one more thing to make it 5stars
by Yt-AlmightyZae on 2019/07/02 15:56
This app it great for a lot of stuff to text on your phone or tablet without being at your PlayStation but it does need 2 things to make this a 5Star app. First allow us to be in party’s and just chat with friends without having to be at our PlayStation. The next one is to please please let us view our clips/ show our clips to one another on the app that would be so helpful and cool because you can interact more with the online players. THANKS For reading and I hope this can get put into the app thanks👍
Update
by Camron1207 on 2018/07/22 23:52
The app so far has been far good, it has been great. But the app could be even better by updating that app, by adding in a feature where you can look at all of your saved clips and pictures from your PS4. Most of the time when you want to show your friend a cool clip u have to be on the PS4 then record it on your phone. With adding a feature where the PlayStation community can show clips and pictures to there friends through the phone would be very useful. This will draw more people to PlayStation and also downloading the app, hopefully the Sony can add this feature which will really benefit the community.
We need to have gallery in the app
by Jojoriel on 2019/09/22 05:26
This app needs to include something else... When are we going be able to see our gallery of photos and videos??! I mean... it would be cool if we can show our friends videos of ourselves playing games in our phone’s (gameplays) Also this would benefit a lot to all the people that edit on phones because they would be able to transport the video from the app through they’re edit app. But honestly this app is pretty amazing and easy to use. I can check my notifications , I can purchase games, even use my phone as a controller. That’s why I rate this app a 4 out of 5 .
New feature required
by Codeman1976 on 2019/11/28 04:40
This is a good app for messaging single or multiple users in one message. I have been using it for years and use it on a daily basis. Some may complain about the breakup of the different aspects of previous versions, but it is better this way (IMO). The one option I have always wanted was the ability to not only add new recipients to a group message, but also to be able to remove individuals from a group message. If you are just wanting an app that is a messaging app, this is the one for you.
REALLY GOOD APP
by huguy02 on 2019/10/04 10:53
I like this app because it’s the perfect thing to communicate with your friends if you’re not on your PlayStation 4 and also you still could have access to anything like your profile and privacy settings trophies and you could check which friends of yours are online and which are not and you could add people even if you’re not on your PlayStation 4 and the reason I like this app is because it’s just like if your on your PlayStation 4 so I thank the PlayStation for this really good app
Good to have but needs work
by this nickname is unavailable please choose another on 2018/07/21 21:39
I love having an app to access my PSN account to make changes etc, but it feels like it’s just the mobile website contained in an app, which I might as well just access through a browser. Biggest issue is the UI set up. The PS “button” feels unnecessary when there could just be a separate page to access the same list of options. The store and store search options need a lot of help. Really just feels like a buggy mobile site, and the search function is very limited. I really appreciate that PlayStation is trying integrate smartphone use with their console, but it really just needs to be updated and streamlined.
Great app but..
by Jeff22* on 2019/06/14 20:00
This a a great app, your able to see which friends of yours are on pan and what they are playing. You can go into the psn store and purchase games and set them to download but if could change it in anyway it would be to add a feature to where if you're downloading a game and away from the tv or not at home at the time you could check on the progress of the download. I have to switch over to my PlayStation to see how far along the download is. It would be awesome to be able to see it from your phone
Great app
by slider2780 on 2018/09/27 06:24
The PlayStation app is amazing and has almost everything I want. That is why I have it a 4 star. The one thing that I would like to see in the future is having the video/screen shots from the users gallery accessible from this app. I know many times where I wanted to show my friends this amazing clip I have but I cannot because it is not available to me other than on my PlayStation or if I download it and wait 30 minuets. This isn’t a need but if would be a great accessory to this app if it would be included in the future.
Does not ever open on the first try
by thezo04 on 2019/01/11 14:35
Every time I open the app after a day of not using it I will get the blue loading screen and nothing else happens. It does not matter if I wait 5 seconds or 30 seconds. Without fail, if I close out of the app and launch it again, it opens almost immediately. I don’t know why it takes two tries to launch the app but if this bug were fixed this would be a five star app all day. I have no other complaints.
still needs fixing
by JayLrog on 2018/12/02 16:43
why is there like 5 different apps when you could literally combine everything into one simple app and make it less complicated? i don’t like xbox but xbox definitely has the better app in my opinion. this app needs a lot of fixing. and it needs to have a playstation store within the app, i don’t want to app to go to safari and look up playstation store to access it. ALSO playstation store online needs an update. it’s always looked the same, change it up a bit, it’s not very smooth or pleasing to the eye. Like xbox we should have an option to join a party from our app AND messaging should have a better look.
Makes Everything Easier
by JenniHasAPanda on 2019/04/12 06:44
There’ll be times where I’ll be in the middle of a game, either online or single-player, and having all three PS apps (Messaging, PS App, Communities) makes it super convenient to check things and message back quickly rather than having to go through the trouble of stopping in the middle of your gaming to check on your console. Everything is easier to access: profiles, trophies, messages, this app practically does it all. 10/10.
Works intermittently
by Dbpope23 on 2019/04/06 15:54
One day the app will open and run like a champ. Then it will give me an error message for the next 6 weeks. I work out of town and on the road a lot so I enjoyed being able to purchase a game and be able to come home to a new game. Now with all the “updates” done to this app, I can almost always count on it to fail. On the off chance it successfully opens and runs as intended I thoroughly enjoy the app and all its qualities. I have force closed the app, deleted cleared and reinstalled, and nothing seems to work. Maybe when the ps5 launches we will get an update that takes us all one step ahead instead of 2 steps back.
Better...

The What’s New section is amazing! It’s basically like Facebook without the Zuckerberg, meaning the garbage that come’s along FB. Share your games and achievements, with just your friends or everyone around you. Tell one or two jokes, talk about an experience that someone “might” be able to relate. Should I dare say go as far as making a new friend, or two. PlayStation is an amazingly, awesome place and the What’s New section is an absolute delight. FaceBook is....ummm meh, but the PlayStation What’s New app is better.
PS4 is Great!! I love my PS4!

So, I was originally on Xbox and I was getting tired to pay 60 dollars a year for the Xbox live thing. So, I switched over to Playstation4 and things changed. I was twice as good in the PlayStation and yeah! It’s not as interactive as the Xbox app, but still very good and it gets the job done. I rate my score a 5/5 because it really good and I have no issues of playing around with the app. If you guys are looking for a good game console, definitely the Ps4 is a good buy for the price, I also have the PS4 slim 1TB version.
Even the bugs are inconsistent, just like the app

For a company that makes millions every year having a buggy mess of a app on the App Store just boggles my mind. I’m trying to make a PURCHASE. I’m trying to GIVE YOU MONEY and is asking for my CVV number and it’s telling me it’s incorrect. Really? What’s the point of having the app on my phone if I can’t download a game right now so when I get home is available?? I thought it had this purpose in mind when Sony decided to make this app. And don’t get me started on the PS messaging app. I send a reply to my group only to find out later that it actually didn’t send my message. How hard is to make a funcional app Sony? You full of bling!
Ok

So I’m not sure if this is a bug or by design but I can’t get the app to go into landscape, it just stays in portrait mode. This would be fine on a phone but it makes switching between the messaging app, community app and this one very awkward on an iPad. I’ll be responding to a message in landscape then go to check something on the this app and I’ll have to put down my controller, pick up the iPad and turn it on its side because the app is only displayed in portrait. Having to do this over and over gets annoying. Aside from this it works great in a phone scenario and I do like the new PS button.
Great Ideas, Poor Execution. (Stripped Features)

First of all, it’s really nice for them to have created this app to being with. It has a ton of great features! That being said, not only is the optimization of the app as a whole, terrible; They have stripped features that were previous available. The worst offender of these is the omission of the messaging app within the main app. They seem to think they need to separate the two but in reality, they just want more revenue from downloads so they split the two features in different apps. Dumb decision. I’m also rating low because a lot of the buttons writhing the store section of the app straight up don’t work. I cannot use the search function at all. Even if I convert it to desktop mode, the search bar never shows up. Please fix this or I’ll just remove the app altogether. This used to be such a great app and almost necessary to own as a ps4 owner. Now it’s a hot fart on a humid day. Please fix the issues addressed and try a little harder next time.
