Sony has released a new update for the PlayStation app that’s available for both iOS and Android. Several changes are included in this update but there’s one new feature that’s going to appeal to quite a lot of PlayStation owners, particularly those who regularly use codes in the PlayStation Store. It’s now possible to redeem PS Store codes using the official PlayStation Store app.
It’s possible to use prepaid PS Store cards if you don’t want to link up your PayPal or credit card to the PlayStation Store account in order to put funds in the Wallet. The cards can be redeemed for purchases that include games, movies, TV shows and other content from the PS Store.
Naturally quite a lot of people use the PS Store to purchase content and those who rely upon prepaid cards are going to appreciate the ability to redeem codes through this app.
This is certainly easier than entering the redemption code through the console itself or opening up the Sony Entertainment Network website to redeem the card.
The updated app doesn’t even require the code to be entered, users can just take a picture of the code and the amount will automatically be added to their Wallet.
Users can now also see comments that they receive while broadcasting from their PlayStation 4 on the mobile device itself. The PlayStation App is available as a free download from the App Store and the Google Play Store.
