Ps4 is awesome
by FN_Drxpy on 2020/09/23 18:48
Ps4 is the best console in my opinion. It has some bad times but I love this compared to Xbox. I’m not hating on Xbox I just dislike it because you need Xbox live to play like every game. On ps4 you don’t need ps plus to play games. Only hype ones from ps plus. Ps4 is a awesome in my opinion.
FAKE NEWS!!!
by TristanXP on 2020/09/23 13:29
So I woke up this Morning excited to play Rocket League for free but I have to have PS Now To play it this is so dumb you didn’t mention anything on the store saying PS Now required in the Featured Section of the store it shows Rocket League Play Free Now. I love PlayStation tho I’m a huge Fan but you need To Fix your Store and say PS Now Required because I’m disappointed!!!
Complete failure
by andrewrocks on 2020/09/23 00:37
Sony, I want to spend $200 dollars in your app. But PayPal fails, and the site doesn’t support safari on my phone? Are you for real? No wonder I haven’t used my PS4 in 8 months. Makes me wonder why I pre-ordered such a 🗑 ps5 console when you can’t even figure out how to take my money.
Please Update
by MGS4280 on 2020/09/23 00:32
I have enjoyed this app ever since I got on my PS3 and have enjoyed it until recently. I keep getting a authentication error please change password or contract support. Well I changed my password and nothing changed. I contacted support and they helped and fixed it. But it keeps returning every week. The last time I contacted support, they said it must be my connection, which it’s not the case since my connection is pretty good. Please update. I use this app to look for great deals. Prefer using the app over my console.
Clips
by Merry_mcfine on 2020/09/22 23:51
I like the everything on the ps app but it would be a lot better if we could see our clips through the app like really awesome and instead of recording the clips on my phone and can just get the clips from the app
Ps5
by its josee on 2020/09/22 23:20
I have been using the ps4 for about 4 years and its getting really loud and i would like for you guys to make the ps5 that it dosent sound like a jet engine and to tell us the prize
Not that bad
by 有毒なスキー on 2020/09/22 14:33
It wasn’t that bad but they should add a dark mode so I’ll give it four stars

Please help PlayStation
by PokeHacker8456 on 2020/09/17 00:03
So I had gotten my PlayStation 4 four years ago so of course my mom put her phone number for the PlayStation network log in and today I had accidentally mistyped my log in password to get in my account well because of that it logged me out of my PlayStation network and I tried to log back in but I couldn’t because of the 2 Step verification and my mom had gotten a new phone number but I didn’t change it to her new phone number because I thought it sends the code to the email but I was wrong and now I can’t log in because my mom has a different phone number and I can use my phone or hers because we don’t have the PlayStation app well I did but deleted it because I didn’t really need it so now I need your help to fix my PlayStation network
DOES NOT PLAY PURCHASED MOVIES EVER
by Nani_News on 2020/09/16 22:46
I’ve had this app, off & on, for over 4 years; Never has there been a decent moment of playback for the movies I’ve purchased. Worst App Ever Created. They should have swallowed this one.

This is perfect
by cptbarraza27- on 2020/09/12 18:51
I have the ps app and ps messages app and this is perfect because your phone goes off when I get an invite while I’m offline and I can then text the person back to tell them I’m offline in my opinion I would buy it
why
by cprwhtly on 2020/09/12 05:27
what is the point in this app why are all of the things that should be main features split into different apps. why. very stupid. makes brain angry.
Its ok
by blueskull23 on 2020/09/11 22:42
The app is still a little laggy, and you should let us see custom friends list in the app... but everything else is ok.
Seriously...you need a separate app for messages
by Cpt.Jesse310 on 2020/09/11 21:35
Why not implement the messages with the PlayStation app? Can Face ID be enabled to login or to make purchases? If so would be amazing. Please enable more feature including the ones I mentioned above. An option to view game clips and add or remove friends would be a good addition as well.

PlayStation App
by ArcadeOne on 2020/09/10 02:23
It’s nothing really wrong with the application I just think the next Mobile app should be more like the full pc version but what concerns me more is that most of the PlayStation Mobile game’s have to be updated more this is not a problem nor a flaw. Even I can over look something reasonably something needs maintenance to fix any how that’s what there hires for.

I have downloaded and uninstalled so many time, I can’t even count it anymore. The app won’t allow me to sign in, nor view any activities. The worse part about it is...I WAS SIGNED IN ONE DAY AND KICKED OUT THE APP THE NEXT! And tip the is day still won’t allow me to sign in.

Would be nice if I could keep up with updates or downloads on the system from the app itself. It would be dope af to have that feature.
DOES NOT WORK
by Stewie_clark on 2020/09/09 03:41
I’ve deleted the App multiple times and it still does not work every time I click sign in to PSN it does not work it puts me on a forever loading screen and I cannot sign into my PlayStation account on an iPhone 11 with the most recent iOS update to date this is clearly upsetting and needs to be fixed immediately
Great App, Missing a Few Features
by Crusher 87 on 2020/09/09 02:37
This app works great, but I just wish that it had the ability to join parties, so I can talk to my friends while they are on PlayStation.

by cantfindaname$264 on 2020/09/08 22:22
So I have over 300 movies and my video app won’t work on any device I try it on. Not only will they not refund me any of the money or credit my account nothing but after hours of trouble shooting waiting on hold and trying to get some kind of money back for the well over 1000$$$ I have spent on just movies alone. I am told there is nothing they can do or will do and I’m just basically out of luck. I really can’t believe this is how they treat a loyal customer.

by granola806 on 2020/09/05 07:28
This app is great but they have too many apps now. Before it was all one app, messages, communities, second screen, all that stuff. But now it’s so complicated because I have to download so many things and the gigabytes start to add up. They at least need to merge messages with PS App. Other than that. Good app.
Mobile Party Chats
by demetri2014 on 2020/09/05 00:23
Self Explanatory can you make a party chat system for the app that’s lets you talk to your friends that you play ps4 with talk to you while you are away.
Please do that

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.
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!
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.
(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.
Good but not perfect
by CarrollNewby on 2020/05/29 03:39
Only thing the feed lacks is having people’s game clips saved and being able to download those clips from the app to our phone which is what Xbox allows and does. If it did that or could be added that would be great. Hopefully when the PS5 comes out the trophy system will improve showing progression, like when u got to get 10 of something have a meter, or say the amount I collected, so u know ur progress. Steam and Xbox both do this and that would be a cool add on which would affect this app as well. Also making messages and ps app one app would be nice. I hated that when Facebook did it and not a fan of having multiple apps to keep up with. Other than that, great job and I’m liking everything else that’s being done thanks PS peeps for the good times.
A Great Start
by seanhsmith on 2020/05/07 14:36
Finally, we can see who's online, add and message PSN friends, and control PS4 directly over the network. I would give this app 5 stars but there are two things I'd like to see before I do. First, it would be great if the app were universal and had an iPad-specific user interface. As of right now, it runs on an iPad but only as a "blown up" version of the iPhone app. Second, it should make use of push notifications for messages. Right now, the only way to know if you've received any messages is to manually start the app and check. If they add these two things, I'll change it to a 5-star review. UPDATE: This app used to be decent. Now, I have to sign in over and over and over again anytime I try to go to Family Management. If it weren’t for 1Password being able to fill in my login details quickly, this would be absolutely intolerable.

Have any of you people played the Empire City Night stage on Sonic Unleashed? Or the Eggman Empire Stage in that game? Of course in order to play Sonic Unleashed, you need to have a PlayStation Now subscription, right? I’m just playing on any stage and it always, EVERY SINGLE FRICKING STAGE, INCLUDING THE WEREHOG STAGES, it kicks me off because of my internet. I have perfectly, smooth, internet at my house(It’s AT&T internet, so I don’t if that’s the problem, I’m only 12). One moment it’s fine, 1080p 60fps, then it goes down to like 240p and less than, like 20fps. Again it might just be my internet but please look into it and try to see if anything can be fixed. This app is amazing by the way.
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
Well developed (mostly)
by Friends only :) on 2020/01/15 04:30
This app features a great GUI. It’s sleek. It’s fun. Until it’s not. I love seeing what my friends are playing and comparing our trophies. I also love shopping through the mobile store. However, the PS Store function is literally a web browser in an app. I wish it features the same incredible interface as the rest of the app. It feels like it was added on at the end instead of built with the first draft of the app. Oh! One other thing I’d love to see is the library of games I own. I almost exclusively buy digital games now. The app should have a place where those titles are kept. Then I can remote download from there instead of needing to search through the PS Store to find the game I’m thinking of.
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.
Terrible App that used to be good
by Doozer17268 on 2020/08/19 18:25
This app at one time was pretty good but it seems now to be more of a pain than it’s worth when using the PSN Store. Every time I go to purchase a game I have to go through a ridiculous process of signing in on my own phone that I’ve done this a 100 times with 2 step verification and put the CVV in on a verified card that I’ve used many times!!! I just bought 2 games today that I had to put in my password 3 times, then CVV and then password a 4th time before it would complete the transaction!!! Exactly what do they think is happening?!?! Someone stole my phone, bought 2 cheap games and is downloading them to my PS4 so they can’t play them?! Or maybe they stole my PS4 too. I have bought 100’s of games over 10+ years with PSN. They really need to get their stuff together!!! 😡
The app works but is SERIOUSLY cumbersome
by Barlock Lord on 2020/06/25 05:39
It doesn’t remember your password. It doesn’t even recognize it as an area to use iCloud Keychain. Then when you go on the Store, it brings up an overlaying page as if you’ve just entered a browser. I hate that stuff. Is it too much to ask an 80 billion dollar company to design a simple and functional playstation app? Literally. Look it up. Their whole company is worth almost 80 billion dollars and they can’t figure out a decent companion app design, while literally thousands of other smaller companies have fantastically well-designed apps to go with their products. At least the app works and isn’t completely broken. But seriously, I can’t believe we have to put up with this primitive app design in 2020.
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!!!
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.
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.
Good enough but can be better!
by ✨Ab✨ on 2020/06/23 15:57
I’m going to start with saying the application is fine. It’s good, but it can be better! Why PlayStation’s own mobile apps are separate from each other? Why is there a PS app, PS Messages, PS Community, PS…etc.? Why can’t all those be in one app like the Xbox app? Why are the chats in a separate app?! They should be in this same app! Even when I enter the PSN store from the app, it has to open an in-app browser. I also want to see who from my friends list has this or that game that I’m checking out on the store and which trophies they unlocked from said game and if I can compare them to my profile. The Xbox app has all that in a better way. As a gamer, we dislike using mobile apps when gaming, especially with online MP & CO-OP. If we have to, at least give us an application that has all features in one app. I have the Xbox app and have tried it. It’s excellent! PlayStation’s app is just good. That’s it. It can be better tho. All I’m saying is just look at the Xbox app, do what they do by combining all the PlayStation apps into one app. Thank you!
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!
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.
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.
Fix The Sign In Issues, Put All Apps in one App
by Stremdog7 on 2019/12/17 18:36
This app is absolutely horrible, I am asked to sign in almost everytime I open the app or every third time I use the app. The Xbox app has you sign in once and you’re good. It’s annoying being repeatedly asked for my login as it should have it memorized and at least work well enough to not ask me to sign in all the time. Secondly Sony needs to find a way to put all the apps in one, it’s almost laughable that Microsoft/Xbox managed to pull off their app so well while Sony is over here looking like a joke with their app/apps. Please fix the issue it’s extremely annoying. The convenience is nowhere to be found. I never write reviews on an app but I feel my voice needs to be heard on this issue as I seen others complaining about the same thing. Sony, listen to your customers.
FIX NOTIFICATIONS
by ledhotzepper on 2020/04/06 02:11
I don’t get why this app and the messages app always seem to fail to send notifications just randomly. It’ll work for a few weeks and then suddenly it won’t and I’ll turn on my console and see I somehow got 5 notifications while it was off but none went to the app. I don’t get why Sony system apps have this issue no matter how often they update. This error occurs at least once a month. This isn’t a problem with apps that have less than 1% Sony’s development budget, so how is this still happening? iOS fully updated on an iPhone 11. There’s just no reason at all. This is on you, Sony. People can’t use your apps properly and then they lose faith in your ability to deliver solid products. Get the little things right at least.
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.
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.
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.
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
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.
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
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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👍
Please add this
by CronaKeithUndertaker on 2020/07/15 14:50
Hello, I love this app. I love that I can keep up with things without having to turn my ps4 pro on but there is one thing I want added (and if it is here please tell me how to open it). Could you please add the screenshot and screen recordings on here? I would love to have them on my phone too so I can show them to my friends next to me and stuff, not all of my friends have ps4’s and some have parents who won’t let them leave the house. So please add this so I can show my friends and other things too. Thank you for your time and have a great day!
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.
It was good for awhile.
by Koifish_bangbang on 2020/03/12 14:47
I’ve been using this app for a couple of years now. It worked fine. Although there were times where I would be signed out and would had to sign back in. No biggie. Lately, I’ve been trying to use it but I’ve been getting this message “An error has occurred.” Keep in mind that I’m using a brand new phone and I’ve been going back to the App Store everyday to check for new updates. Unfortunately, it’s been about a week and I’m still getting that message and haven’t been able to use it at all. Only app that works that is related to it is the PS messages app. I have no idea what’s going on but I hope it’ll be resolved soon.
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.
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 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

Ps4 is awesome
by FN_Drxpy on 2020/09/23 18:48
Ps4 is the best console in my opinion. It has some bad times but I love this compared to Xbox. I’m not hating on Xbox I just dislike it because you need Xbox live to play like every game. On ps4 you don’t need ps plus to play games. Only hype ones from ps plus. Ps4 is a awesome in my opinion.
FAKE NEWS!!!
by TristanXP on 2020/09/23 13:29
So I woke up this Morning excited to play Rocket League for free but I have to have PS Now To play it this is so dumb you didn’t mention anything on the store saying PS Now required in the Featured Section of the store it shows Rocket League Play Free Now. I love PlayStation tho I’m a huge Fan but you need To Fix your Store and say PS Now Required because I’m disappointed!!!
Complete failure
by andrewrocks on 2020/09/23 00:37
Sony, I want to spend $200 dollars in your app. But PayPal fails, and the site doesn’t support safari on my phone? Are you for real? No wonder I haven’t used my PS4 in 8 months. Makes me wonder why I pre-ordered such a 🗑 ps5 console when you can’t even figure out how to take my money.
Please Update
by MGS4280 on 2020/09/23 00:32
I have enjoyed this app ever since I got on my PS3 and have enjoyed it until recently. I keep getting a authentication error please change password or contract support. Well I changed my password and nothing changed. I contacted support and they helped and fixed it. But it keeps returning every week. The last time I contacted support, they said it must be my connection, which it’s not the case since my connection is pretty good. Please update. I use this app to look for great deals. Prefer using the app over my console.
Clips
by Merry_mcfine on 2020/09/22 23:51
I like the everything on the ps app but it would be a lot better if we could see our clips through the app like really awesome and instead of recording the clips on my phone and can just get the clips from the app
Ps5
by its josee on 2020/09/22 23:20
I have been using the ps4 for about 4 years and its getting really loud and i would like for you guys to make the ps5 that it dosent sound like a jet engine and to tell us the prize
Not that bad
by 有毒なスキー on 2020/09/22 14:33
It wasn’t that bad but they should add a dark mode so I’ll give it four stars

Please help PlayStation
by PokeHacker8456 on 2020/09/17 00:03
So I had gotten my PlayStation 4 four years ago so of course my mom put her phone number for the PlayStation network log in and today I had accidentally mistyped my log in password to get in my account well because of that it logged me out of my PlayStation network and I tried to log back in but I couldn’t because of the 2 Step verification and my mom had gotten a new phone number but I didn’t change it to her new phone number because I thought it sends the code to the email but I was wrong and now I can’t log in because my mom has a different phone number and I can use my phone or hers because we don’t have the PlayStation app well I did but deleted it because I didn’t really need it so now I need your help to fix my PlayStation network
DOES NOT PLAY PURCHASED MOVIES EVER
by Nani_News on 2020/09/16 22:46
I’ve had this app, off & on, for over 4 years; Never has there been a decent moment of playback for the movies I’ve purchased. Worst App Ever Created. They should have swallowed this one.

You should just be able to do ps4 messaging in this app and not have to get another app just for the ability to message when offline

This is perfect
by cptbarraza27- on 2020/09/12 18:51
I have the ps app and ps messages app and this is perfect because your phone goes off when I get an invite while I’m offline and I can then text the person back to tell them I’m offline in my opinion I would buy it
why
by cprwhtly on 2020/09/12 05:27
what is the point in this app why are all of the things that should be main features split into different apps. why. very stupid. makes brain angry.
Its ok
by blueskull23 on 2020/09/11 22:42
The app is still a little laggy, and you should let us see custom friends list in the app... but everything else is ok.
Seriously...you need a separate app for messages
by Cpt.Jesse310 on 2020/09/11 21:35
Why not implement the messages with the PlayStation app? Can Face ID be enabled to login or to make purchases? If so would be amazing. Please enable more feature including the ones I mentioned above. An option to view game clips and add or remove friends would be a good addition as well.

PlayStation App
by ArcadeOne on 2020/09/10 02:23
It’s nothing really wrong with the application I just think the next Mobile app should be more like the full pc version but what concerns me more is that most of the PlayStation Mobile game’s have to be updated more this is not a problem nor a flaw. Even I can over look something reasonably something needs maintenance to fix any how that’s what there hires for.

by VegetasNephew on 2020/09/09 19:40
I have downloaded and uninstalled so many time, I can’t even count it anymore. The app won’t allow me to sign in, nor view any activities. The worse part about it is...I WAS SIGNED IN ONE DAY AND KICKED OUT THE APP THE NEXT! And tip the is day still won’t allow me to sign in.

Would be nice if I could keep up with updates or downloads on the system from the app itself. It would be dope af to have that feature.
DOES NOT WORK
by Stewie_clark on 2020/09/09 03:41
I’ve deleted the App multiple times and it still does not work every time I click sign in to PSN it does not work it puts me on a forever loading screen and I cannot sign into my PlayStation account on an iPhone 11 with the most recent iOS update to date this is clearly upsetting and needs to be fixed immediately
Great App, Missing a Few Features
by Crusher 87 on 2020/09/09 02:37
This app works great, but I just wish that it had the ability to join parties, so I can talk to my friends while they are on PlayStation.
App stopped working and no one will help me.
by cantfindaname$264 on 2020/09/08 22:22
So I have over 300 movies and my video app won’t work on any device I try it on. Not only will they not refund me any of the money or credit my account nothing but after hours of trouble shooting waiting on hold and trying to get some kind of money back for the well over 1000$$$ I have spent on just movies alone. I am told there is nothing they can do or will do and I’m just basically out of luck. I really can’t believe this is how they treat a loyal customer.

Too many apps
by granola806 on 2020/09/05 07:28
This app is great but they have too many apps now. Before it was all one app, messages, communities, second screen, all that stuff. But now it’s so complicated because I have to download so many things and the gigabytes start to add up. They at least need to merge messages with PS App. Other than that. Good app.
Mobile Party Chats
by demetri2014 on 2020/09/05 00:23
Self Explanatory can you make a party chat system for the app that’s lets you talk to your friends that you play ps4 with talk to you while you are away.
Please do that
by qehgsjnggg on 2020/09/04 21:46
Hi PlayStation I you to put a feature to turn on my ps4 while it’s in enter rest mode make it like a button you press or if you hold the ps button in the app it turns on

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.
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!
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.
(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.
Good but not perfect
by CarrollNewby on 2020/05/29 03:39
Only thing the feed lacks is having people’s game clips saved and being able to download those clips from the app to our phone which is what Xbox allows and does. If it did that or could be added that would be great. Hopefully when the PS5 comes out the trophy system will improve showing progression, like when u got to get 10 of something have a meter, or say the amount I collected, so u know ur progress. Steam and Xbox both do this and that would be a cool add on which would affect this app as well. Also making messages and ps app one app would be nice. I hated that when Facebook did it and not a fan of having multiple apps to keep up with. Other than that, great job and I’m liking everything else that’s being done thanks PS peeps for the good times.
A Great Start
by seanhsmith on 2020/05/07 14:36
Finally, we can see who's online, add and message PSN friends, and control PS4 directly over the network. I would give this app 5 stars but there are two things I'd like to see before I do. First, it would be great if the app were universal and had an iPad-specific user interface. As of right now, it runs on an iPad but only as a "blown up" version of the iPhone app. Second, it should make use of push notifications for messages. Right now, the only way to know if you've received any messages is to manually start the app and check. If they add these two things, I'll change it to a 5-star review. UPDATE: This app used to be decent. Now, I have to sign in over and over and over again anytime I try to go to Family Management. If it weren’t for 1Password being able to fill in my login details quickly, this would be absolutely intolerable.

Have any of you people played the Empire City Night stage on Sonic Unleashed? Or the Eggman Empire Stage in that game? Of course in order to play Sonic Unleashed, you need to have a PlayStation Now subscription, right? I’m just playing on any stage and it always, EVERY SINGLE FRICKING STAGE, INCLUDING THE WEREHOG STAGES, it kicks me off because of my internet. I have perfectly, smooth, internet at my house(It’s AT&T internet, so I don’t if that’s the problem, I’m only 12). One moment it’s fine, 1080p 60fps, then it goes down to like 240p and less than, like 20fps. Again it might just be my internet but please look into it and try to see if anything can be fixed. This app is amazing by the way.
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
Well developed (mostly)
by Friends only :) on 2020/01/15 04:30
This app features a great GUI. It’s sleek. It’s fun. Until it’s not. I love seeing what my friends are playing and comparing our trophies. I also love shopping through the mobile store. However, the PS Store function is literally a web browser in an app. I wish it features the same incredible interface as the rest of the app. It feels like it was added on at the end instead of built with the first draft of the app. Oh! One other thing I’d love to see is the library of games I own. I almost exclusively buy digital games now. The app should have a place where those titles are kept. Then I can remote download from there instead of needing to search through the PS Store to find the game I’m thinking of.
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.
Terrible App that used to be good
by Doozer17268 on 2020/08/19 18:25
This app at one time was pretty good but it seems now to be more of a pain than it’s worth when using the PSN Store. Every time I go to purchase a game I have to go through a ridiculous process of signing in on my own phone that I’ve done this a 100 times with 2 step verification and put the CVV in on a verified card that I’ve used many times!!! I just bought 2 games today that I had to put in my password 3 times, then CVV and then password a 4th time before it would complete the transaction!!! Exactly what do they think is happening?!?! Someone stole my phone, bought 2 cheap games and is downloading them to my PS4 so they can’t play them?! Or maybe they stole my PS4 too. I have bought 100’s of games over 10+ years with PSN. They really need to get their stuff together!!! 😡
The app works but is SERIOUSLY cumbersome
by Barlock Lord on 2020/06/25 05:39
It doesn’t remember your password. It doesn’t even recognize it as an area to use iCloud Keychain. Then when you go on the Store, it brings up an overlaying page as if you’ve just entered a browser. I hate that stuff. Is it too much to ask an 80 billion dollar company to design a simple and functional playstation app? Literally. Look it up. Their whole company is worth almost 80 billion dollars and they can’t figure out a decent companion app design, while literally thousands of other smaller companies have fantastically well-designed apps to go with their products. At least the app works and isn’t completely broken. But seriously, I can’t believe we have to put up with this primitive app design in 2020.
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!!!
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.
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.
Good enough but can be better!
by ✨Ab✨ on 2020/06/23 15:57
I’m going to start with saying the application is fine. It’s good, but it can be better! Why PlayStation’s own mobile apps are separate from each other? Why is there a PS app, PS Messages, PS Community, PS…etc.? Why can’t all those be in one app like the Xbox app? Why are the chats in a separate app?! They should be in this same app! Even when I enter the PSN store from the app, it has to open an in-app browser. I also want to see who from my friends list has this or that game that I’m checking out on the store and which trophies they unlocked from said game and if I can compare them to my profile. The Xbox app has all that in a better way. As a gamer, we dislike using mobile apps when gaming, especially with online MP & CO-OP. If we have to, at least give us an application that has all features in one app. I have the Xbox app and have tried it. It’s excellent! PlayStation’s app is just good. That’s it. It can be better tho. All I’m saying is just look at the Xbox app, do what they do by combining all the PlayStation apps into one app. Thank you!
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!
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.
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.
Fix The Sign In Issues, Put All Apps in one App
by Stremdog7 on 2019/12/17 18:36
This app is absolutely horrible, I am asked to sign in almost everytime I open the app or every third time I use the app. The Xbox app has you sign in once and you’re good. It’s annoying being repeatedly asked for my login as it should have it memorized and at least work well enough to not ask me to sign in all the time. Secondly Sony needs to find a way to put all the apps in one, it’s almost laughable that Microsoft/Xbox managed to pull off their app so well while Sony is over here looking like a joke with their app/apps. Please fix the issue it’s extremely annoying. The convenience is nowhere to be found. I never write reviews on an app but I feel my voice needs to be heard on this issue as I seen others complaining about the same thing. Sony, listen to your customers.
FIX NOTIFICATIONS
by ledhotzepper on 2020/04/06 02:11
I don’t get why this app and the messages app always seem to fail to send notifications just randomly. It’ll work for a few weeks and then suddenly it won’t and I’ll turn on my console and see I somehow got 5 notifications while it was off but none went to the app. I don’t get why Sony system apps have this issue no matter how often they update. This error occurs at least once a month. This isn’t a problem with apps that have less than 1% Sony’s development budget, so how is this still happening? iOS fully updated on an iPhone 11. There’s just no reason at all. This is on you, Sony. People can’t use your apps properly and then they lose faith in your ability to deliver solid products. Get the little things right at least.
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.
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.
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.
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
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.
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
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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👍
Please add this
by CronaKeithUndertaker on 2020/07/15 14:50
Hello, I love this app. I love that I can keep up with things without having to turn my ps4 pro on but there is one thing I want added (and if it is here please tell me how to open it). Could you please add the screenshot and screen recordings on here? I would love to have them on my phone too so I can show them to my friends next to me and stuff, not all of my friends have ps4’s and some have parents who won’t let them leave the house. So please add this so I can show my friends and other things too. Thank you for your time and have a great day!
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.
It was good for awhile.

I’ve been using this app for a couple of years now. It worked fine. Although there were times where I would be signed out and would had to sign back in. No biggie. Lately, I’ve been trying to use it but I’ve been getting this message “An error has occurred.” Keep in mind that I’m using a brand new phone and I’ve been going back to the App Store everyday to check for new updates. Unfortunately, it’s been about a week and I’m still getting that message and haven’t been able to use it at all. Only app that works that is related to it is the PS messages app. I have no idea what’s going on but I hope it’ll be resolved soon.
Good to have but needs work

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.
New feature required

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 app but..

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
