STARSCREAM1 F22 - Review 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.
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.
wheatbloom - Great new update BUT...
I love the brand new UI, a completely renovated look, easy accessible to what I need and where I need it except, I feel like you guys missed out HUGELY on the Capture Gallery. This was that one feature I was looking forward to ever since I made the switch to Playstation. As of right now I can edit and share captured screenshots/videos exclusively only on the console itself and nowhere else. I'd understand if editing would have to be done on the console but sharing clips from my library/profile should be an option on the app! Especially with the new PS5 coming out it'd be a great addition to the PS app to be able to seamlessly share our content/trophies etc. to any social media or be able to forward to our friends. Except there's only one option and that too on console, which is Twitter. It's really sad to see how much Playstation emphasizes on 'Sharing' to the point where there's a dedicated button on the controller for it, yet no support on the app itself. It still has the basic most features the last PS App did, but this time it was just revamped with a nice and clean look. I'm hoping that changes once the PS5 is officially released but I'd love to see a sharing/editing feature integrated within the app. I know it's 100% possible and definitely can be done. Overall, great work on the app so far. Hope I'm heard and can expect something out of it in the near future!
Mel Vz - New update could be better..
I love the new update, It looks great! But there are so many things from the older version that i believe makes it better than the newer version. Being able to customize your profiles look by changing your cover image, profile color, and more was a huge deal for me. Customizing group chats was another cool thing. You can do it in the new version, but it has to be with more than two people. In the new version you can’t do as much as the older version. profiles just look so dull to me now. When you start the app you can see what your recently played games are. When you go to your profile, you can also see what your recently games played are. I think that’s unnecessary and boring. I preferred the old layout. Being able to see your friends, who you’re following, and followers was a lot better. Same goes with seeing friends profile. I really don’t want to see just mutual friends. The what’s new page was also removed. I thought that was a great way to see what your friends are up to. what games they started playing and trophies they’re achieving. I love that you can download games to your console and make purchases though the app. It’s a lot faster than doing it on console.
gschraer - Not a review of the app it self but more of the PSN network as a whole
The PlayStation app works quite well, as I’ve encountered few glitches or bugs, though it can be hard to navigate compared to the old way. However there are some issues that I have with the PlayStation Network that apply to this app. First, you can no longer change your cover image from the app, or the website for that matter. I have no idea why they removed this feature as now it’s much more difficult to change the cover image, and it often looks worse because you’re having to take a screenshot of something rather than download the image. Second, Playstation does not allow you to delete shared media so if you post anything, it stays on your profile. This is another feature that seems so obvious to have, as sometimes you post something and later don’t want to see it. Third, when you become friends with someone, you automatically follow them and they follow you back. But if you unfriend them they will still be following you, and you can’t make them unfollow you unless you block them. Once again, it seems only logical to have the ability to control who follows you and who doesn’t but Playstation does not allow you that. If PlayStation could give more freedom to users it would make their network much better.
ScottIsHot96 - Update glitches invites on PS4
This new update is pretty bad, has added a number of issues in the PS4 system, as well as not being able to add people to your friends list from the invites you receive. It’s extremely annoying, and I’m almost wondering if it would be easier to switch to XBOX. I’ve been an avid ps fan since the ps1, have had every system available. Now it seems like they don’t care about the people playing anymore, or people who stream. Why can’t we use remote play to play from our PS4 and stream the gameplay as a secondary screen to a PC or Mac, to then use things like OBS. Instead you have to connect your controller to the pc, yet be under the same network. Why have the lag when you could just have the controller connected directly to the PS4 pro and stream from the computer without the lag? What’s up with these issues? I’ve contacted Sony support for the PS4 and have gotten the messaging system ended as soon as I ask any question. It’s seeming extremely dishonorable what SONY has done in the past 6-7 years. I’ve even offered to buy the M.A.G. Streams back to create a new game comparable with the PS4-ps5, with no luck, no contact information, and absolutely rude feedback from SONY.
Itz_Dogzforlife - wonderful update, but having an issue...
after just recently switching to the ps4 after a long time of my buggy ps3, i’m still new to not only ps4 but also the ps app. the app is useful don’t get me wrong and the update was really nice but as a gamer who’s always on/in a voice chat the update is kind of annoying. i’ve seen a couple other people have the same problem and i really suggest you fix this for people who like to use wireless gear.
my problem is that i don’t own any wired headsets, and in order to do my voice chatting from my phone it needs that. i know, i can just go to my nearest store and get a decent wired headset but it’s a waste of money if i spend all this money on wireless gear just for it not to be compatible with playstation.
on a good note, the UI is way easier. i used to have a lot of trouble on the older version and often some features wouldn’t even work. (such as buying games) luckily this update is better. and now since we can link our consoles it’s 10x as easier for me to get games since at times of the year i’m across the country from my ps4.
dansington - Looks great, buuut pretty disappointed
1st, there is no wishlist. I don’t know why the felt like this feature was unnecessary. Having a wishlist actually got me to spend MORE money. Now if there’s a game I’ve been waiting to go on sale, I just have to remember which game it was in the first place and scroll through all the deals to probably not find it anyways. It was a nice way to have a list of all the games I thought looked interesting that I might pick up someday. But nope. It’s already hard to find indie games on here so if you come across one you might pick up, you’d better write it down somewhere. Makes me think they want to make it harder to get deals so they can get people to pay full price more often.
2nd, it’s glitchy. I’ve put 3 games in my cart, but when I try to pull up the cart it’s just a blank screen. Like nothing on it.
In conclusion, it looks nice. It’s easier to scroll through. But I don’t really think they have the consumer as the priority right now. It seems more like they care about the look and pushing the Triple A titles. I hope there are updates that make improvements because PlayStation has always been my go to.
Honeyholedazzlr - Photo Gallery
I really love the newly designed look and UI of the PS App, a great leap in my opinion, but still lacks behind the Xbox/Game Pass Apps. They have the Photo Gallery right there in the bottom of the interface that lets you see your captures, photos or videos. Just like Stadia. Theirs is right at the bottom of under the games you have. I realize how much work it might take to implement this into an all new designed app, and how much space it could take up to build servers or cloud service to store all photos from the PlayStation family; but your app is behind. 5 stars once it’s added as a feature but it’s just great for now. I only use it rarely because of this lacking (important mind you) feature. Because having to upload to Twitter then save tends to degrade not only the video but wastes time when I could just open the app and save or download the video/photo. Then I’d use this religiously. But still, great job Sony/PlayStation and devs that develop all these, it’s still phenomenal.
Susanoo83 - 1 step forward 2 steps back...
The app has potential, but now it’s missing so much. The ability to post things from your phone to the What’s New section and the fact that the What’s New section is completely gone (no bueno) being able to comment and like your friends achievements or posts is what made the PS app stand out on top of any other gaming app that’s out there. Messages being intergrated into the app and the fact that you can actually buy things off the PSN are both welcomed changes, but all the accessibility that was in the original app needs to return. Profile customization, themes, I personally enjoyed the fact that close friends or family could see your actual picture with the Avatar made it so much more personal. If those changes are to occur I would not just recommend this app, but if you have a PlayStation, you NEED this app. As of now though the app is just...meh*...hope to see these changes in the future, but this is a decent start.
CoolGuyDennis - Not as good as it used to be!
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.
Forsanain 45 - Good UI but voice chat annoys me
To start this review I love the UI and features the new update has, and I think it was a lot better compared to the one one. my problem comes when I try to join a voice chat on my phone. I have tried multiple times to use a wireless headset connected to my phone in order to use the voice chat feature but the app doesn't seem to support that function so I'm forced to use earbuds or my speaker in order to talk to someone on the voice chat. I find this incredibly annoying that the app, which is made for phones in order to be easy to use, does not let me use the audio device of my choice to communicate via voice chat. I don't think I should have to be forced to use specifically earbuds on the app when I prefer to use my Bluetooth headphones which have better audio quality. It would be nice for the voice chat feature to be more accessible when it comes to what audio devices you can use with it.
happygodavid - Looks great but missing key features
The new UI is great. Navigation is smooth, and it’s fairly easy to get around. However, I just skipped the PS Store Black Friday sale because of this app. Why? No Wish List. And no filters in the store. I am new to PlayStation (lifelong gamer elsewhere), and I did hours (HOURS) of research on the best PS-exclusives when I got my console last year. I added all the ones that interested me to the wish list, and that wish list is how I buy games. I previously opened my app, looked at my list, and boom. After spending the last 20 minutes trying to find the Wish List, I realized it simply wasn’t there. I don’t want to spend any more of my day scrolling through countless games, with no easy way (that I can ascertain) to filter games or find a wish list. Please bring back the wish list, and please add easy-to-use filters on the store.
Side note- the app seems like a great place to edit and share screenshots and such, but again, no easy way to do so.
So much is so right; it can be much better.
TheRealZcamYT - Not a bad app but needs improvements
This app is good but it needs improvements like if someone invites you to a party, and you don’t have a mic to connect to your controller. This is a repeating problem, but with my suggestion. It’s to add a function of joining your friends party or heck even having a function even having a mic setting and yet you can’t use it. Here’s another improvement that I suggest, Make sure that if you get an invite to the party, you can actually join the party and chat not giving us the option to get a mic. No doing that., just makes it a waste of time. Do the most good thing and do it. Don’t leave the people without mics. Make sure that they get the best gift from you Sony. Do these improvements and you won’t have a BAD rating. That’s why I’m giving Sony and the PlayStation app, a 3.5 stars. If you do these improvements I’ll even give you a 5.5 out of 5 for making the best app. So without furthermore I bid you a farewell.
JDHMC GAMING - 🤔
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?
Holly Cost - Needs some work.
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!
WILLL____ - Poor quality
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.
Blatisian - New app looks good
I’m really liking the new look. Especially the resolution upgrade. Everything just looks way better. Definitely next gen release worthy. Only request is that we can make the photos and videos full screen, when viewing the game pages. And make it so that iPads can view the app in landscape mode please. Thank you for all of your time and work with these upgrades. =)
Ps. Please bring back wishlist as well. I actually used that frequently for games I planned on getting. Couldn’t buy them all at once so I used the list and bought them when I was ready. And it’s easier during sales to just go to my wishlist and say hey, those games I wanted are on sale. Versus searching for them one by one. Please and thank you 😊
brotherfromspace - A nice change but a few steps backwards
A nice change for sure as the old app was getting a little outdated. Pluses - Interface looks really nice and organized well. Setup is easy and overall a nice update from the previous app. Minuses - Portrait mode on the iPad has been removed. This is a big bummer as using an iPad Pro 12.9 in portrait mode for browsing and typing is a awkward. Not sure why that feature was removed. All iPad apps should support both orientations. Also, they removed the ability to add favorites from the online store. This was a great feature as you could essentially add a bookmark to a game or games you may want to purchase in the future. On the Nintendo Switch not only can you favorite games but they’ll let you know when those games go on sale, which is really nice. Overall a nice start but needs some improvement to make it really great.
JustinAlmighty - This app is really great
We need to be able to change our background cover like the last version and we need also need a better security improvement we can’t rely on 2 step verification because what if your phone is off and you can’t get in into your account? Which is cool but we need more options like be able to send codes to our email I think that is easier than sending codes to a text messages and we need an authentication app like Microsoft have to protect our PlayStation network account I just think we need better security for our account and make our account more safer we need more options not just sending codes to our cell phones we need our emails as a 2 step verification as well.
S U P E R M A N 21 - ( iOS 14 ) widget compatibility
Should update this app a bit more for the iOS14 , to have such widget on hand to be able to wake PS4-PS5 on your rush of getting home and quickly able to reach your buddies via widget to get ready to “ Assemble “ With Avengers ; or talk smack to settle a bet you already lost but tryna redeem yourself in MK11 ... and also , turn to “ Rest Mode “ when you’re already half way out the door to go pickup your girl from the mall where you silently left her ,at that one girly store ; just to get home and quickly watch some “ Powers “ ( Sony original series ) and to make sure your PS5 Pre - Order wasn’t canceled via email 😂 .. be great to just see visual progress of downloads / updates , while your away is awesome ..
Wolfey Aikiu - Hate the new update.
I’m a PlayStation app veteran. I’ve been using PlayStation since I was a little girl and I always HATED typing out messages with a remote. When I found the PlayStation Messages app, I was delighted to finally be able to message all my friends with ease! I was using it for years.
Then they updated it. They tore down the messaging app and combined everything into one app. That sounds wonderful and efficient, right? WRONG! It is VERY glitchy, hardly updates the messages on time (you have to refresh, frequently), the party invites make it hard to maneuver and constantly glitch out, and you can’t even do something as simple as check the trophies for your games without it saying an error.
I would say the best part about this update was the layout and the party option where you don’t even have to be on your PS4 to join. I just wish this layout was for the original PS app and we could still use the old Messaging platform.
I’ve quit messaging any of my friends and trying to be active online for this very frustrating reason.
I hope they fix this because I just hate it with a passion.
If I could give it zero stars, I wouldn’t. As a graphic designer, coder, and web designer, I say they earned the one star with the efficient new look. It’s a shame it doesn’t live up to efficiency when it comes down to the mechanics of things.
CarrollNewby - Good but not perfect
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.
Kevinthegreatest8463 - (Updated) Worked okay at first, completely bugged now
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.
seanhsmith - A Great Start
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.
geometron - Unintuitive, broken, and seemingly malevolent
This is the worst app from a major technology company I’ve ever had the misfortune of using.
The chat feature doesn’t update automatically (I have to close and reopen a specific chat to see incoming messages). My app regularly has badge numbers but I can’t find any unseen notifications when I look inside. I can’t forward attachments nor pinch-zoom to see them better. The list of grievances is extensive and too long to enumerate here.
The albeit slick design has unintuitive navigation and confusing space arrangement. The whole thing seems like a poorly patched together collection of features aimed to bolster a PS game sales engine. It reminds me of being in a Las Vegas casino: purposefully disorienting and redirecting your attention to the money spending option until you surrender to the pretense—this is the extent of your reality now, might as well participate.
NickerPL - Sony secretly disabling ”Players you may know”
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.
iKey_33 - I like it but...
I like the app overall design. I love the fact that Sony put the messages back into the app. I’m pretty sure there are share features missing but from my view, the two things that are missing is 1.) Quick Reply and 2.) iOS 14 widgets.
It would be nice to see that if get a notification from the ps app from one of my friends asking me if I wanna join them in the chat room or a message asking if I’m going to play online today instead of going into the app I’d be able to quickly reply from the lock screen simply by long pressing the notification and responding from there. Also, it would be nice to glance at a ps app widget getting such information as messages inbox, who’s online and my trophies.
HOBO WHOS A HOBO - Bruh
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.
Tony2Truuu - Won't allow me to sign in
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.
Friends only :) - Well developed (mostly)
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.
The Apple User that cares - Playstation app review
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.
Projectluthor - A functioning back button
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.
heyyall.. - I don’t like the new update of this app nor do I like the new PS4 update
I don’t like the PS4 app update because we can’t change our profiles background anymore and I’m sad about it. And when I tried to change my settings it would always say “connection time out” and that’s annoyinggggggg. Also I hate the PS4 update because I hate the fact that we can’t create parties as we used to. I have alots of questions for PS4. A)Why don’t you make some thing that shows people’s there deleted photos or videos because someone in my household deleted my video memories and I can’t get them back 🙁. B) every time I try to download something or update something it always takes hours or days for it to finish. I know my Wi-Fi slow but does it have to matter? Because I would try to ask my parents could be by faster Internet but for some reason they won’t. These are just my opinions.
KnightGhost161 - Bad Update
The functionality of the app was degraded for a fancy new UI instead. Notifications don’t show like they’re supposed to and the messaging is a lot slower than the original, independent, PS Messages app... which brings up another point, the unintelligent decision to shut down the independent messaging app which was a much better system than the one in place now. I have a friend who is unable to talk that is now hindered by the slowness of using messages through PS App and would rather exit the game just to send a message. Good job PlayStation, you know exactly how to mess up things instead of making it better. People may not like my opinion about PlayStation, but I don’t care... I have factual evidence of PlayStation being a terrible, greedy company that spits in their fans face. Just be aware people, this app is terrible and doesn’t work in its current condition.
xXloboXx - Honestly the PS Messenger App was way better.
Only use I have for a PlayStation app was to quickly view and reply to my messages, and the PS Messenger was perfect the way it was. Now that it’s been integrated into this app I’m forced to use this instead and boy is it a downgrade. Way slower than the last app, everything is grey and less visually appealing, the app absolutely refuses to send me a push notification when I get a message, can’t go horizontal mode, can’t zoom in on images, and my biggest problem with it? The messages don’t automatically load like the PS Messenger app. I’ll have a message open talking to a buddy while we’re playing and I’ll see on my TV screen they sent me a message, but it doesn’t pop up on my phone. I have to go back a page and click on the message every time to see the new message pop up, It’s very annoying. Honestly I hate this new app, I miss PS Messenger.
legofan994 - Love the new app, but wish it had a few features
I’m really happy with this new app update. There are only a few changes that I would suggest.
For the UI I wish you could swipe to go back rather than having to hit the arrow at the bottom of the page. Sometimes that arrow gets hidden and you have to scroll aways just for it to appear again and you go back a page.
Some other cool additions would be the ability to see how long you’ve played each game. Maybe like a play log sorta thing like other consoles have had. I know the Playstation tracks that info because they let me know in emails which games were my longest played but it’d be nice if I could see that in the app as well.
Doozer17268 - Terrible App that used to be good
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!!! 😡
Barlock Lord - The app works but is SERIOUSLY cumbersome
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.
MitchTheBossMan (Youtuber) - It honestly gets worst
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.
Custzm - Ps4 banner
The old app before the update allowed users to change the banner on their profile I can still change my profile pic from my phone but can no longer change the banner. I would really like to see that feature added back now I have to manually change it from my PlayStation which my not be a be a big deal but I can not get the banner I want from my photos. It would just be a quality of life improvement for people wanting to personalize their profile exactly how that want it I’m not sure why it’s not a feature anymore.
Mr Hayhurst - Notifications have become ADS
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.
Geefromsp69 - PlayStation App
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!!!
RhettJ89 - Not as good as it used to be.
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.
✨Ab✨ - Good enough but can be better!
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!
HeliosZs - Great app, however I discovered something
I love using this app, I use it a lot when I speak with my friends off screen. But few minutes ago I accidentally closed my app when I was speaking to one of my friends in the app, when I reopened the app everything wasn’t working right and it kept in saying that I couldn’t send messages, I tried all I could but I deleted the app and tried to reopen it. When I downloaded the app again it didn’t let me sign in to my account. I tried deleting it and re downloading it again but I got the same results. This is just a bug I found and I hope this could be read and for the developers to fix this app.
Richard_1400 - New feature idea
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.
Stremdog7 - Fix The Sign In Issues, Put All Apps in one App
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.
Medvi Hartoonian - More features needed!
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.
ledhotzepper - FIX NOTIFICATIONS
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.
SanicFanGuy - Great app. Needs improvement.
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.

Willman842 - Great app but a few polite suggestions
This app is great, nothing wrong with it at all! Shows you your active friends, clean design, games, trophies, all the works. However I would LOVE to see it more integrated with PlayStation features such as seeing the progression of updates so you didn’t have to wake the PS up from rest mode all the time, remote connection and basic feature control, and perhaps the status of your PS. It’d also be so good if we could share video clips from the PS straight to the App for easy saving and sharing of our clips! And perhaps a cleaner transition to the PS store for buying games and add-ons. Thank you for reading, I’d be thrilled to see these features added :)
smcpherson - Pathetic app!
Although I love having messaging integrated, I prefer the functionality of the old apps, the only saving grace for me is the ability to use the iPhone to join a party but it’s hardly ever needed. Firstly, why is it I’m only receiving a banner & sound notification for half of the alerts I get? If someone starts a party or invites me I need to know about it! Never had this issue with the message app. What is up with the back button? It keeps changing location with different menu’s & doesn’t work half the time, it’s actually quicker to kill the app & restart. If I’ve viewed all new messages then why on earth leave the ‘notifications’ icon highlighted & consequently the badge icon until I specifically go into the notifications section to clear both??? You removed filters & sort options from the store? Are you kidding me?!? I’ve literally given up searching for a random cheap game to buy as I simply don’t have the time to sort through page after page after page instead of just being able to sort by cheapest price or highly rated, yet again you limit capabilities (in what I can only assume is to reduce maintenance time fixing all of your poor implementations) only to lose more sales. Not only that, it takes several seconds to load the next lot of like 10 images...seriously?!? Clap, clap for Sony!!
Pops_58 - A sad, pathetic joke - Now even worse
The new app is, to put it mildly, pathetic. Putting messaging back into the main app IS a good idea. Unfortunately, they’ve changed the name from PS messaging to “well, that didn’t work.”
Purely apart from the fact that they’ve stripped even more functionality from the app so that it now shows virtually nothing, it now appears that Sony have, once again, forgotten that there’s a thing called an “iPad” that works really well in landscape mode. Which this app doesn’t.
NOTE FOR ALL NEW USERS WHO THINK THIS APP IS GOOD:
Once upon a time, Sony had a PS4 app that worked reasonably well. Not perfectly, but reasonably well.
Note that I said “A PS4 app”.
Yes, ONE app that did everything.
Then some moron decided that they would split it into two apps. Then three apps. Then four apps.
And none of them are of any use. To get part of what you got in a SINGLE app, you now have to switch between four apps. ALL of which forget that you’ve used them before and force you to sign in again. With two factor authentication. Which fails two times out of three.
Yes, I said PART of what you got in the single app. All four together have LESS functionality than the single app had.
Personally, I think one star is being pretty generous.
Put it back as a single, usable app and you might actually show that you care a tiny bit “for the players” instead of “for the payers”
Sha-nia - Handy app
Pulling the communities(Dropping support) app is a huge disappointment to me, currently “Communities” App is still showing in PS App and App Store for some reason?
The whole idea of this PS App is for convenience of faster usability of our consoles/accounts as trying use a dual shock controller for text input all the time is a inconvenience plus too we don’t always have access to console. In my view I don’t thing Sony has worked enough for the best user experience both here and on the console, they both don’t look well polished.
Xander Tigerclaw - What the hell?
While reincorporating PS Messages, this new redesign completely obfuscated or flat-out removed general PSN account and store functionality. Where is my wishlist? What’s my wallet balance? Why are store tiles untitled—and how am I meant to guess the difference between these 3 identical ones with different (or sometimes the same!) prices?? Why aren’t there rating stars, let alone reviews, on store listings? Why don’t my trophies appear when viewing a “Played” game? Why FOR THE LOVE OF GOD can I not even make trailer videos FULL SCREEN, let alone push them via AirPlay? Why do most store list pages not have any (or only poor) sort or filtering options? How can I find new people near me (or even just in my country)? Why did Sony bother with this abysmally poor UX of an app rewrite? (bonus question: why is “Second Screen” still a separate app?)
sagar156 - Worst navigation
Hi guys I am really frustrated with the game navigation and slowness of this app and console, I don’t know what design of app is in background but it’s clearly legacy
The messaging social side of the things like is all secondary or later chit chat
All I want is as a user first and most important
I should be able to view browse games fast and see game play video fast,some games have some don’t , make decision pay move on. In as less time as yesterday
Add more filters a-z z-a by date that’s it ?
Even in ps4 pro when I start browsing games it’s just become slow and laggy going back and forth, god forbid if have to scroll up or down after 20-30 titles
It’s so time consuming
I hope you guys fix this ASAP
You are throwing data in bulk at user without faster way of consuming it
Your app should be the primary source of information , it’s like there is fixed set of games coming up or under some category but rest of them are lost and no way a user can get to know about them fast
so only way Is to do internet search and then filter on Sony app or console what’s the point ? Ok
Thanks in advance
reviewer of game 123 - Best app ever
It shows you everything you need and if you have downloaded apps like ps4 messages or ps4 remote play it can automatically switch you across to Those apps it has the PlayStation store my account settings it shows me when my friends are online and I can text them to amazing app it’s got everything you will need one of my favourite things is being able to play my ps4 through my mobile device thank you for this great app good job :)
Ton0b0i - Just needs another feature
The ps app is generally a really well made PlayStation companion, you can check your notifications, discounts in the store and what your friends are playing. It’s just missing that one feature, the ability to watch your saved replays and view your screenshot, please add this Sony, so I can just watch my sick gameplays on the go and not need to hop on the PS4 inorder to see it, thanks.
Pierce1121 - “The network connection has been lost”
I am unable to open the app! When I first installed the PlayStation app, it worked fine. But for some reason, it has stopped working, and both this app and the messages app does not open. I am, for some reason, getting PlayStation notifications for invites and such, but when I attempt to open the app, the following message appears: “The network connection has been lost”. I have uninstalled and reinstalled a few times, but it still refuses to open. Please help! Would definitely give 5 stars if this gets fixed! :D
hussy5678698 - Quite unique layout
I really like the aesthetic with minimal Ui clutter, it provides users with a feel of a more modern and 2020’ish app which is good. I have one demand if that’s okay this app is just missing a downloads tab for the ps5/4 when paired with the app so it’s much easier to see if there’s updates or downloads, thank you for reading this if you did anyways “Play Has No Limits!”.
🖕Susan Wojcicki🖕 - PLEASE add landscape support for iPad
I think the app is mostly fine as is but it’s a huge inconvenience to constantly switch to portrait mode just to write my friends a message.
I’m used to always having my iPad in the landscape orientation and the PS Messages app luckily supported that option. Can’t say the same for this app, though.
It’s especially a pain because I am now forced to use this app over PS Messages so I can’t just go back.
John Cummingbridge - Can’t download clips to camera roll???
I’ve been trying to figure out a way to download clips to my camera roll to my playstation but haven’t been able to find an option on how to? xbox has this feature from what i’m aware and i think it’d be great if a feature was added where you can download clips from your playstation to your camera roll directly, thanks!
AdelaideBen - A complete failure of an app
When it works it was still clunky and inefficient (the way you accessed the store felt like logging in twice - which many times needed to be done for real). However biggest gripe is that apart from sporadic periods of working, the app almost never opens on my iPhone 6s+ or iPad Pro (9.7). All updated with latest iOS. What a joke... for all the money we pay for PSN plus you would think they could work out a stable app. Also the error messages that come up don’t appear on any online error log.
RJrjrjrjrjrjrj - More features
the app itself is really good. I love the set up and the way it’s all set out. But I do think they should bring a new feature to the app.. “clips!” we should be able to access any photos or videos we have captured on the PlayStation. Xbox has this feature and I definitely think play station should too.
thebse - Please fix the Back button
On the whole it’s not a bad app, but with the ‘Back’ button inoperable it is a nightmare to use. The operation of just adding the handful of PS Plus games to cart takes three times the clicks it should because after adding each game to the cart you need to return to the main menu for PS plus, click on free games again.
It used to work so not sure what’s happened - I’d give it 4 stars if this worked as it used to.
Edit - 8 months on and still no fix for the back button when browsing PS store through the app. Come on developers!!
Luke Swallow - PS Store browser
The back button doesn’t work anymore, if you press a game to look at you can’t go back to the previous page. Very annoying especially when trying to add the PS plus monthly games to the cart, you have to go back to the page from the start and can’t just go back and forth and add all the games to the cart. Please fix the back button, it used to work a few months ago.
igneels_fire - Internet problems
Hi PlayStation idk y ur internet service keeps going down but for anyone out there buying a console don’t buy PlayStation seriously learn to fix ur network or some people probably need to be fired from the job because it’s ridiculous and annoying fingers cross u guys aren’t lazy idiots and actually read this I couldn’t play with my friend because if ur lazy asses I hate people on this community bad service and when people report a message and it’s not even bad u guys still ban it that’s a poor service I think all of u should be fired not kidding
Cool Guy 73 - No way to view clips/screenshots
I’ve been through all PlayStation apps and haven’t seen this and honestly the amount of times I’ve wanted to show people clips without access to my psn profile is annoying, it’s such a simple thing and yet it’s something many people would appreciate and yet it doesn’t exist, please find a way to do this because it would make many people happy
missultimate - Fix this please its trying me mad!
So out of no where my app is telling me i have 30 notifications by giving me a little red bubble with the 30 and ive got no new notifications. Ive uninstalled the app and reinstalled it and it clearly a glitch because when you click the app it sometimes makes the bubble disappear. Also even when i have the notifications on im still not getting them properly so please fix
The derpian - Amazing
This app is amazing. I can see when my friends are on, what theyre playing and do all the things you can do on the actual console accept one thing: joining a party. I could have some headphones plugged in and join my friends party from my ipad. This would be an amazing feature that would make this app so much better
JRiva - No landscape and not able to purchase in app
IPad usage without landscape is not good, safari is better..
Also I can't purchase anything, says I need to complete in web browser but safari also doesn't work so I have to add to cart then complete the PayPal purchase on the ps4.. Could be so much better, fix these then the app has use but at the moment it's not better than the browser experience which a dedicated app should be.
heapsfully - The absolute worst messaging app ever created
This app is trash! Takes forever to load anything, photos don't work half the time and there is no zoom option, when you leave a party you remain in the message chat which is another 4 steps to leave that, there is no easy message delete option, no quick option to kick players from chats.. its bad enough they record everything but to put out an app that’s so pathetically worthless, it’s inspiring me to get a pc
The pickle guy - PS4 app
I had the app set up with my account for a awhile and one time I tried to open the app and my account wasn’t signed in i put in the wrong email on accident and now someone else’s account is showing up and I can’t quit out of it or anything and I used one of my emails so someone else is using that? Now I can’t use the app because it has another account and I can’t quit out there is no “this is not me” button which I recommend
Navidsons Record - Great app
But with one flaw that I’ve noticed. Trophy progression doesn’t sync up to the app from any of my consoles. Deleting and then reloading the app is the only way I’ve figured out how to update it. Besides that, great UI, it’s clean, well thought out. Having the ability to know when games have finished downloading on my ps5 is wonderful!
Jsusvs - Great but needs access to saved replays
This app is great, it has multiple things that are very handy, but there is one feature that needs to be added, the feature is so I can view my saved replays and screenshots because it’s easier to share them with friends at school. Otherwise it is a great app.
Joe123abc456 - Great but it needs one more thing
This is a great app it’s reliable and easy to use but it needs a section where I can see what my downloads are on for my PS4 because I’m not always home and plus maybe a play and pause function for then.
Thank you, keep up the great work
TheBroHood - It works, please make a sharefactory app
IT WOULD MAKE IT SO MUCH EASIER IF YOU COULD MAKE A SHAREfactory App to edit linked to ps4 so you could save and work on projects wherever and save your clips easier.
Also I recommend getting the PlayStation messages unless your changing your personal profile picture.
juless_c - Good app but needs new features
I really like this app as it tells me when my friends are playing. But, I think it would really help if you were able to see your clips on the app instead of just on the actual ps4. Like the xbox app. they can see their clips on their phone and i think it would be a much better app if you added clips.
plaguewind - What is this for again?
Can't use my phone as a remote for video applications, and I can't download update files to my phone on free wifi and then sync to my playstation via Bluetooth when I get home. Every feature it used to have is being offloaded into a seperate app. The few things this app can do are slow and clunky enough to warrant just using the website. You're falling behind and overcomplicating when you should be competing and streamlining..
el Rorter - Good but....
It’s much better than before but when someone sends a screenshot of gameplay you cannot zoom in and it won’t go into landscape when you turn the phone so you have to download the photo to your photos then switch apps just so you can see it. Fixing that would be a great improvement for ease of use
amgus2002 - New update idea
Can u guys add so u can see how far your games downloaded so if the console is on rest mode or your away for the day u can see what it’s up to and so u don’t have to leave the game your playing could just check the app
Hashtag42 - I like it
The app gives me a central location to access my account and the PS store, plus see friends and activities. I can’t link the app with Facebook though - says there’s too many redirects when it tries to bring up the Facebook login... please fix this and I’ll give 5 stars
Dvhiftjig - Good update, but no wish list?
Looks a lot cleaner and easier to navigate than the old app. The ‘Wish list’ function seems to have disappeared though, which I found very useful for keeping all my desired games in the one list. Would be happy to see that back again!
Burnt_Burrito765 - Needs gallery option
The app is amazing and useful but it would be even better if we had the ability to go through our capture gallery through the app... I can’t be the only person that requests this right?
CaityB07 - More notifications
I love how the app tells you about invites but can you please add the option to have notifications when our friends are online like on the PS4 instead of trying to reset the friends list. It would be a big help.
cheese_slices - Can’t sign in
Seriously I can’t even sign into my account and it keeps saying that the password is incorrect even when it isn’t, also when I try and get the password reset by email, no email is sent and when it is sent to my phone number and I try to reset it, it just says that the connection to the server has times out, please fix this.
batman 252387 - Amazing
I love the app it helps me keep up with everything only problem for me is that the back button for PlayStation store does not appear only for me please fix, only works after refreshing it
CheestonTryHard - Glitching
Since I upgraded to IOS 14 the app crashes on launch and you have to launch it multiple times. Some time it also comes with a weird error when logging in. But overall without all of the glitches it’s a great app
isg war - VERY GOOD
overall this app is amazing it has everything you need to make sure you keep up with your ps4 needed i would like to add a notification when downloaded things are done but still very good
Jmsfree43 - Fix purchasing
Overall a convenient app. Just need to fix the back button so that I don’t need to continuously go back to the main page. Further, it’s quite annoying that I can’t complete any purchases within the app itself, and need to open Safari any time I want to do so. Please fix
Blackie 666 Forster - Zoom on photos
With the app and messaging you can’t zoom in on pictures anymore , now you have to DL a pic that a mates sent them look at then delete it , be nice if you could just zoom in on pics in the app , other than that app works ok
heyhey tomorrows saturday - Great service but.....
Hurry up with the cross platform as I have both ps4, psVr and Xbox1 and I buy games for both consoles so I can play online with friends and family. I’ve always been a ps kinda guy and would love to trade my Xbox for more ps4 games
Aussie Spacepixie - Can’t even sign in
I couldn’t use psmessages so I opened this app on my iPhone 6 and hit sign in only to be left looking at the same screen. Why I suddenly had to sign in again god only knows. They have put too many functions into this app now and it’ll be too complicated to navigate. Put back the psmessages app which I was using daily. You can keep this one.
spencer::2004 - PlayStation App
the app is overall good, sometimes have problems but is usually very reliable. Easy to find out when friends are online and everything needed :)
Squizmeister17 - Good app but missing one thing
I think they need to add notifications for when friends go on like what they have on the actual PlayStation instead of getting on and checking or having them message you
Wari16 - Fix it
Yo what is going on? I can’t open the PlayStation app or The Ps Messages app for some reason it’s says connection has been lost in the ps messages and some error C8 something on the PlayStation if this is fixed I’ll give a 5 stars. Also I still get notifications on my phone for some reason even tho I’m not logged in??
AaronNBA30 - Awesome app
Helps gamers communicate about strategy in the game, or friends to talk and have fun, easy to use and has all updates and news as you open the app, I like it highly recommend this app. 👍
EllenEvelyn - messy
new design is clunky and messy. trying too hard to copy the xbox app without fully copying it. I have a badge notification constantly stuck on my app logo when there’s no notifications to open. I’ve tried deleting the app and the notification still won’t go away. bring back the old look/function...!
Super Altermattego - Webpage in an App template
This app has so many good features. But it can’t keep you signed in, like EVERY other app can. It asks to ‘Continue as Me’ then asks me to sign in for the millionth time. Clicking on anything loads up some other webpage with information. And the rest actually just takes you to an into Safari. It’s just clunky and feels like it’s 2005 again when WebApps were a thing.
With new features like remote play and the PlayStation Store etc, the amount of money they make from PS Subscriptions these days, why can’t Sony just get someone else to make an AP with a fantastic UI.
Also, let people put TV apps on their PlayStation Home Screen, seriously Sony it’s 2019.
Please make some changes.
SamiShelley - The old apps functioned better.
This new combined app never seems to be able to connect to the server to carry out changes to display pic. Also it constantly has the little red notifications on the app but when I open the app there is nothing that I can find and the little red notifications won’t disappear!!!

DavoTheArmenian - Mobile Party Chat
I think adding a mobile party chat through the PlayStation app would be awesome
W4rror32 - 4stars
Great app but I think it would be better if you didn’t have to download other apps to do simple things like messaging
Humbard - Removed features
The store is a bit basic now. The removal of the whishlist is a bummer. Other than that, its a better take than the new xbox app for sure...
Elvick - Eh
The problem with all the PlayStation apps is that you have to constant resign into PSN. It’s incredibly obnoxious and makes it pointless to use them over just opening up your PS4.
The design of this app is also pretty bad, and it runs poorly.
Youtube Sukhdee - PS4 app
It is really good but I just want if you could see ur uploads from sharefactory that’s it but overall it’s really good with notifications profiles and everything
VileBlood9999 - Add the communities app INTO this one.
You removed the app previously and gave nothing for people in return, If it was that under used then surely the BEST way to communicate with communities could be implemented into this NEW version of the App that has all the services.
Sfgbfgxsfgfhx - Crashes everytime I open it
The app doesn’t even work for a billion dollar company this shouldn’t be a problem
make it compatible for iphone6 - 3 stars
The app is great but its suuuuuupppppeeeerrrr slow thats why i give 3 stars but pretty sure its gonna get fixed
Justmejtcz8 - Fix it
Like I don’t understand why it needs to take 5 minutes to open chat messages, then take another 5 minutes to open the chat itself then another 5 minutes to even type what you want. It shouldn’t take that long. Either make a patch for the phone or bring back the OLD ps app
csphoto79 - Horrible reliability
Every time I use this app there is something wrong. Payment doesn’t work, screen is blank. Really irritating for a company that makes technology
Lupa55555 - When messaging, would be nice to see the message
I get no notifications from my phone. If someone responds to me while I’m in the app, looking at the message thread, I will see them respond on my TV, but the message will not show up in the app until I shut it down and re-open. If people don’t or can’t use the mic, PlayStation has made it infinitely more difficult to stay connected.
If this changes, I will change my review
crazy430stm78 - Give Us Push Notifications Back!!
My PS4 notifications are OFF because it seriously annoys me to get pop-ups when I’m playing a game, especially when I’m in an intense fight, in a cutscene, doing Shareplay with a friend or broadcasting. Sony took away the main reason WHY I have the app in the first place; TO GIVE ME PUSH NOTIFICATIONS!!!
Not only was it a bad decision, it was STUPID, Sony! I’m not the only one who is absolutely dumbfounded that you did this!
The app is deleted until we get Push Notifications returned. Make better decisions based on your customers, NOT your company! Stop being so bloody selfish!
drypickle69 - Sucks
Old messenger was better. No notifications for this app. Slow... lags... can’t paste anything in chats... can’t zoom in on pictures... why change what works?
CamoCandie - Notifications
Notifications don’t come through when they are supposed to and the badges don’t go away showing you have multiple notifications when you actually have none.
Tn132MAH - STILL more or less useless.
This app is horrible. I basically use it for two things. Family management to monitor my kids usage which works more or less fine and to add funds to the wallet when they want to purchase something. This feature was hard enough to get to in the old app and is COMPLETELY NON-EXISTENT in this version.
I try going to the PS store in a browser to add funds and I get an error every time.
Sony you need to get your heads out of your asses because the app works about as well as your PS5 rollout.
kicker_d - Missing wishlists and game/achievement sorting/filtering options
The new PS5 app feels very archaic and out of touch. It is missing the following:
- No wishlist functionality
- No ability to sort/filter games and achievements
- PS3 & Vita games have been removed from our library!! (Should still be able to see digital purchases and filter by PS3/vita, 100s of games gone)
- App doesn’t notify you when new PS Plus games are and when available.
- Remote play should be same app instead of needing to install a different app.
- Backbutton is hard to see, gets lost in on screen elements
- Toggles are hard to tell if on or off.
Gdggviib - Fix your app
This app is broken on my iPhone 12 its stuck at the sign in screen, when you press sign in nothing happens 😕
firepup1 - Meh
They shouldn’t have changed the app, I can’t even look at my wishlist now, and its so clunky. Also I can’t look at the Black Friday deals, the screen goes white and the app crashes
ChillyWMD - Looks pretty, not nearly as useful
New version loses a ton of features, no easy way to do account management, assumes you only have one console, no camera for redeeming codes, no easy access to family management
Matt D Cat - This is getting stupid!
I don’t know what you guys did with the update, but every time I try to use the camera, the app crashes! And now I can’t even use the other original app to upload a picture. I don’t know if anyone else has this problem, but I’m getting miffed. You need to fix this problem, ASAP, yo. How am I to upload jokes if I can’t use the camera?
El1219349 - New change sucks
I don’t like how you can’t see who you played before. it’s stupid! The change was unnecessary! I liked how ps4 was before it tells you everything!!! !!!! Now it’s all about purchases and THEM making money . They shouldn’t have changed it in my opinion
LiamRain - Reduced functionality
This app is an absolute downgrade having had key features removed as opposed to improved:
1) PS newsfeed - no way to review friends’ game activities on phone anymore.
2) trophy compare
3) easy format to review games where players have obtained platinum trophies
Lip911 - Can’t Buy Games
Overall the app looks great aesthetically. However any game I attempt to buy keeps giving me an error saying unable to add to cart. Running latest version of iOS.
_SomeRandomCanadian_ - Cannot Sign In
Yesterday (February 10th) I installed the latest update available and today I went to open the app and noticed I’ve been signed out. Clicking the “Sign In” button causes the application to display a spinner icon for a brief moment, then immediately goes back to the sign-in page.
I’ve tried force closing the app and restarting the phone but the issue persists. Please fix.
Shaylynn🌙 - this update is wack
first of all, what happend to being able to change your cover image? Secondly, viewing profiles arent as detailed as before. Putting in messaging in the app doesnt make up for the fact that this update sucks
Savagemadman - Horrific Confusing UI Experience
There was nothing wrong with the old app layout, same with the old web store.
This new system is ugly, cluttered, and (intentionally?) confusingly laid out. It’s very difficult to search for and specific content in. Worst of all, I can’t find a shopping cart or wish list option anywhere.
Also, WHERE IS MY PS3 and VITA CONTENT?!?
It seems specifically designed for browsing and impulse buys.
Wah wah reviewer - Worried for the future of the platform.
The removal of PSP, PS3 and PSVita games from the ps store and the library has me weary about the future of my PlayStation backlog. While I’m happy to finally have a catalogue beyond the awful “download list” their omission seems to only herald the inevitable removal of my PS4 backlog. It is ironic that these legacy platforms have been axed since this app has a truly ugly 2006 aesthetic that could have launched beside the PS3.
piper lucky - UI
Like the new Ui of app it much simpler than previous app just want sony to add ps3 support as well along side with ps4
Ripyitq - It’s GREAT
I love this app so much it make it so easy to see if my friends are on or to see if there’s a new game in the Ps Store
frostykm - suspended
got suspended of off ps4 for no reason
KaseyplayzXx - Can’t open
I tried to open the app multiple times but it keeps saying an error has occurred please fix this.
Petrolhead_Chris - Attachments
The PS App doesn’t load the attachments pictures I want to send in groupchats. This needs to be fixed
HiTacos - Update Sucks
It logged me out one day, and when I logged back in it wouldn’t let me see my messages and it still doesn’t.
kvtisufsifzifjzufxif - Not that bad
Once I deleted it because I felt I didn’t need it anymore but then I wanted to download it back so I tried downloading it but did not work and keeps resetting my phone
TDVTsdfds - This app is slow and unresponsive
I shouldn’t disconnect from the party when I switch to my data fix up
cough then - Really?
The performance of the app is very terrible right now and needs to be updated.
Cbelcher929 - Garbage
This app is garbage, half the time it won’t let you sign in. When you can half the time it doesn’t let you load in chats. You can’t zoom in on images shared, can’t even rotate them sideways for a better look. 100% trash, I chose to type over the PlayStation instead of this app.
joshforce10 - Broken
I can’t even see the games I played and the messages don’t even load as quick as it did before the update broke it so unless they update it again it’s busted
CrimsonNite - Love the new update!
So happy now i can do everything away from my console and tv! Party chat on the go makes me happy to have. Download games to my console with at tap of a button easy! Now if only my friends could get there hands on a PS5 console we be set.
randomguy2255 - Constant crashes on latest iOS fixed
App refuses to open on iPhone 11 on iOS 14.5.. extremely frustrating
Edit: crashes fixed with latest update!
fischsticks69 - Latest Update Causing issues
Main screen won’t show any recently played games. And the compare trophies ability would be good again!
rūsu - Cover
I can’t change the cover image on my phone anymore 😠 in easier that way.
Someguy205 - Latest update broke the app AGAIN!!!!
No wonder you can’t make the PS5 work, you can’t make the PS app work.....lovely
rileyrox - Clips
Ok app. Would like to see a feature that lets you see the clips you save on your PlayStation
ExistentialLife - Newest Update Broken
It won’t even allow me to login. When I click the button, it goes to submit the request but then takes me back to having to click the button again. Please fix!
Simon Sinclair - Bravo
App launches. Click sign in and does nothing. Can’t login.
Owning al - Can’t login - Doesn’t work
Open the app. Tap “sign in”. Page turns black with a white spinning progress bar for 1 second and then drops back to title page.
Harry2244668800 - Can’t log in
When I open my ps app it brings me to a screen with the ps logo and a button with sign in on it. When I click the button it brings me to a gray loading screen for a millisecond and then right back to the starter screen
XAlexGamingX - Won’t even load
I try to sign in and it shows the loading screen but then it just puts me back on the sign in screen
No work for Canada - Can’t load
No longer works even after update on IPhone
