Sony has launched the official app for PlayStation Network on iphone and Andrioid.
getting it first
ill be second downloading now. Where is it? im on the android market and its no where to be found.
If you can't get it this link is for the QR code http://imgur.com/xB94s
Also, here is the apk for the app on Android if anyone wants it http://www.megaupload.com/?...
Could someone upload the .ipa for iPhone?
It's not in the Android store YET.
I'd be most interested in seeing my PSN friends list online/offline status and be able to send PSN messages.
Just checked my iPhone, it's not up.
It's only available in Europe so far.
Are you guys dumb or what? READ THE ARTICLE! IT CLEARLY SAYS, "The first version (1.0) is available in the following countries: UK, France, Germany, Spain, Italy, and The Netherlands." Clearly if you can not find it you are not in those countries.
Interesting... all I'm getting is a "Item not available to download" after using QR. The article does say where it's available, and the US isn't included... oh well.
And people say that the UK gets screwed by sony.....SMH
@kharma45 Bubs for being super helpful and giving us the app.. it works ;D
Downloaded it and seems a bit crap, nothing really exciting or useful on it. It looks very nice though...
Thanks kharma45, I can confirm that this works in the US if you download it from the link kharma45 provided.
Fina-f*&^ingly. Hopefully Version 1.2 has Chat. (as Version 1.1 is just a language update apparently) Though they did say they were looking into lots of options for this app, so heres hoping..
someone upload the IPA for those in the US please!
yeah i'm sure lots of options are coming... I don't have a smart phone, just have a sony ericsson Aino...which is the only phone to have PS3 remote play...it will do everything remotely that a psp can do, except play games...so I can stream in all the video and music on my ps3 hard drive, set up ps store content for download to the PS3, send/receive messages from my psn account...etc...there is chat functionality, but that pretty much only works over wifi, not 3G...in fact most of this stuff is only worthwhile if its over wifi...3G speeds are so all over the place in the US its barely worth it... so i'm sure these kinds of things are easily possible on the more powerful smart phones, it will just take a few updates...
looking good so far. nothing special yet but sony have said they will constantly add features as time goes by. a neat little app that keeps me up to date with all things playstation cant be bad!
seems pretty good so far, although its got limited usage. They should make it like xbox - where I can remotely purchase DLC etc... That would be good for PSN
Update: Its quite fast, but we should be allowed to purchase things via this app. Unlike other apps, it actually closes when you exit!!! Thats the best feature lol. I also cant send messages to friends, hopefully more functionality is added! Good start though, I wonder if MS will respond? (Even with windows phones). I could do all my messaging on both consoles from my android. I hope MS do it, but the PS version is pretty cool.
Ok, what does it do? Can you send message? Is this a me to answer to M$'s Windows Mobile 7 360 Live app on its phone? Will it work like that or is this PS3 app useless? Anyone have a list of features?
Read the article -_-'
Can someone get the .apk file off their phone and put it on megaupload? That way anyone outside of the UK can download it.
Here it is, posted it a few comments above too http://www.megaupload.com/?...
Thanks for the apk!
Thanks Kharma for the app. Helpful Bubble+ Installed in Liquid E. Works fine with froyo. Also I m in canada. so you can use this app outside Europe.
Aussies screwed yet again.... why i am not surprise fuking bullshit
WEAK!!!!!!!! ONLY IN EUROPE WTF!!!!!
What does it do?
It's an app that grants you 3 wishes then transforms into a jet and fly's you to your own private island.
Awesome. I'm off to South America.
DR here I come!
Off to england so i can download the app
@jwk94, but to fly to England to get the app, you need the app... so you already have it...
Just looked on the app store, can't see it anywhere yet.
Hey Jim, Here's a quote from MusterBuster, "Hey guys, Just to confirm, the app should be available on the Apple Store and Android later today (if not already!) Let us know what you think of it! MB". Possibility it might not of found its way onto the store yet. Hope this helps. :D
Much obliged Dannehkins :) I will be checking the app store perpetually until it arrives. Since itrophies stopped working a while ago, this app has been very much on my radar. Thanks again!
Search under "Playstation app" and it will be second on the list.
Hi mate, added a link in the story. :)
Smashing! Looks pretty good and I have some ideas floating around in my head on what to include in future upgrades of the app. For instance, messaging people from our phones. Nevertheless, can't wait to try this app out.
Just checked the app store on my iPhone 4, it's not on there.
great timing, with some great games for 2011 this would come in handy
Here's a link showing the app, but it is the GB version of the site so whether that will have any significance I don't know. http://itunes.apple.com/gb/... Either way, you're searching for the PlayStation Official App if that helps anyone.
thanks for the link. it appears to be UK only. guess 'ill have to wait for a US version.
You'll be waiting a heck of a long time, unfortunately. SCEE and SCEA are like pre-Stringer Sone Corp., they do things all on their own and don't seem to work together.
oh thanks for the link, here is a bubble for being helpful... everyone bubble up Dannehkins Now as far as the app, looks like it's not on the US app store yet just did a search, this is turning out to be a sweet day... First we get the iPhone4 on Verizon and now the perfect app will be available by the time I get my new phone... Awesome... .____........___...____ .____||......||.......____|| ||.........___||.......____||
why should you care about the iPhone coming to Verizon? Android is much, much better.
Dude, read the article, this is a SCEE App (PAL markets). SCEA has only said they will look into this.
Works really well on Android 2.2, now have quick access to the blog, news and friends list. Comparing trophies loads quicker than doing it on PS3 too :P @Dannehkins, that feature would top it off for me.
how did you get it? I searched the android market and found nothing?! I am in the US btw
Not out in the US until future update - that's what it says on the eu playstation site anyway.
Cool using it to keep up with games and the like. Not to sure if I would need it for trophies.
Not sure what to do with it.. but I want it.
If it's just for the messaging. Better than going into the XMB all the time.
Can I play Donkey Kong Country on it?
For Window phone 7 owners, PS admins confirmed there it will not come to window phone. Obviously :P Ok im downloading ps app for my iPhone and have spread the word. Thanks Wotta!
Good why would they get it.
maybe because people who own a windows 7 phone might also own a playstation ?
I just downloaded and im impressed. i went to PS blog section and its pretty good. Especially an article about GT5 photoshoot.
the android app is there its called Playstation official app hahaha looks like im first to download it
make one for the PSP :O
If your a UK resident then search for 'Playstaion Official App' in the market if your on android. Features are pretty bare for now though. Would be useful to send messages etc. *Ah outwar beat me too it. ;)
It seems like the UK always gets the good PS3 stuff first. I guess the US devs have too many hoops to jump through before something like this can go live.
@sleewok I take it you're being sarcastic? The US gets earlier release dates, more stuff in the store plus countless discounts (don't get me started on Amazon discounts/deals that the US gets). Rant aside, I believe it was developed by Europeans so it would make sense that we get first shout on it.
This is a really good smarty pants app. I think I will invest in this little beauty. ; )
This just gets BETTER all the time.. Thanks ; )
