Stay In The Game: Sony Launches Official PlayStation 4 Companion App For iOS

November 13, 2013

A couple of days before the launch of the next-generation video game console in the continent, the official companion app of PlayStation 4 has just been released by Sony for customers in North America.

The app, simply called PlayStation App, was announced alongside the PlayStation 4 itself during Sony's PlayStation conference last February.

PlayStation App is designed to be a second-screen app and a social networking hub for PlayStation 4 players. With your PlayStation 4 system and Sony Entertainment Network account, you can use the app to:

  • See what your friends are playing, compare trophies, and view your profile or recent activity.
  • Chat with your friends; receive notifications, game alerts, and invitations, and then use your mobile device as an on-screen keyboard for your PS4™ system.
  • Browse PlayStation®Store, pick-up the latest hit games and add-ons, and then push them to your PS4™ system so they are ready when you get home.
  • Take advantage of the in-app second-screen features, when available, for greater challenges and control.
  • Quickly access PlayStation® system guides, manuals, and PlayStation.Blog.

Optimized for iPhone and iPod touch running iOS 6.0 or later, PlayStation App is available now for free in the App Store for customers in North America.

It's set to be released for customers in Europe on Nov. 22, a week before the PlayStation 4's scheduled launch in the continent.
