Preview: PlayStation App Impressions and How It Compares to Xbox SmartGlass

Joel Taveras writes, "Early this morning, Sony Computer Entertainment finally lifted the wraps off of its Playstation App. Available now in Google Play and the iOS app store, the companion app provides users with full access to their Sony Entertainment Network account for their PlayStation devices. The application is the first of it’s kind for PlayStation so I figured it was worth a closer a look for those of you who have yet to install it on your smart devices.
Check out my impressions of the app as well as how it compares to (the Xbox alternative) Smartglass. Enjoy the clip."

until he said something about that little advert across the bottom i had never even giving it a second thought. i still dont as its not that serious lol.

I think the advert might only apply to non-Plus users. I'm a Plus subscriber and just flicked through all the screens and have not spotted one PS+ ad.

I don't have this advert at the bottom, both my iPad and Motorola phone. Maybe he isn't PS+

Clearly the guy is retarded. 99% of free apps have adverts in them. I don't see how an advert for ps plus is offensive.

I'd love to mess around with it, but instead I have an annoying bug that I can't seem to fix. Every time I load up the app, if I click on anything it tells me to sign in. So I do, and it just sits at my internet browser saying "Sign in successful, please return to the app". So I did, but then I get the looping of signing in over and over again. Really annoying.

@ xPhearR3dx
I have that same annoying bug on my GS4. And what's even more annoying is that it won't let me close out my open browser tabs.

Works nicely...Easy to use, snappy on my S4, and easy on the eyes :-)

Same here, XperiaT. Actually, improves sending messages, it really makes this a usable chat system. Awesome! Curious how this works with game invites.

HugoDrax1797d ago

Downloaded it earlier today on my iPhone 5S. I'll say it works as advertised, but can't wait to try it out on my PS4 on the 15th.

Looks cool. Xbox is getting an updated smartglass app on the 22nd though.

Maybe it will be as good as Vista or Windows 8
