Sony announced its PlayStation app, which would be able to interact not only with their PlayStation 4, but also with a good majority of Sony’s PlayStation Network, would be released some time in November on both iOS and Android. It looks like Sony has officially pulled the switch as its PlayStation app is now available for both mobile operating systems.
The PlayStation app is being released just a few days ahead of the launch of the PlayStation 4, which is just two days away from being released. The application will allow its users to chat with their friends, receive notifications and game alerts as well as invitations. There are a ton of other uses of the PlayStation app such as being able to see what your friends are currently doing, comparing trophies, view their own profile and recent activities.
PlayStation app users have access to the PlayStation Store while they’re away from their consoles as they have the ability to schedule games and add-ons to download onto their PlayStation 4 to get them ready for when the user returns to the console. The application can also serve as a second-screen experience, that is, as long as the developer offers that kind of gameplay feature for their title.
