PlayStation App Details

PS4

Shuhei Yoshida dropped some details on the upcoming iOS and Android PlayStation App launching around the PlayStation 4’s release.

Speaking with the PlayStation Blog, Shu explained what users can expect from the app.

“It’s an application that anyone can download for free on iOS and Android devices,” he explained. There are a variety of things you can do with it. You can connect to your PlayStation profile and send messages — even voice messages — to friends between your smartphone and PS4. A friend on PS4 can also send out an invitation for a multiplayer game, which you can then check on the App, and you can also purchase PS4 games from PlayStation Store. Your game will immediately start downloading while you’re away.”

Details on what developers can do with a second screen:

“There are many big publishers creating their own apps for their games, like Watch Dogs or Battlefield, and that’s great,” he added. But smaller developers can use PlayStation App to connect to PS4 and load an application, like drawing software for example, so that you don’t have to download and install a specific app on your smartphone. It’s open to all PS4 developers to use.”

A more in-depth look at the app is promised as the launch nears. What do you think of the app’s potential? Do you think you will find yourself using it?
