Posted by on June 14, 2018

PlayStation®App is a great way to get a new gaming experience on your smartphone or tablet. While using this app, you’ll always be in touch with other gamers and ready to play anywhere and at any time. The app enables you to view what other users are playing, compare trophies, and check out the profile and recent activity. You’ll get timely notifications, alerts, invitations, so it’s impossible to miss something important.

What PlayStation App Is

Stay updated and connected to your Network and friends with this handy app loaded with tons of features and benefits. With this app, users can keep a track of all their friends online and the game they are currently playing. Get regular updates and exclusive alerts on all games that require an upgrade via notifications that are sent directly to your mobile screen. The app also enables gamers to keep their profile updated and gives you the option of customizing it to your liking. Challenge your friends to win prizes and awards and keep a close look on the leaderboard and their progress. You can also check your friend’s current activities, their profiles as well as the latest games they have played. The best thing about this useful app is that gamers can select add-ons and install games on the go via the PlayStation Store and have then synced to their PS console, ready to be played as soon as you reach home. However, to access these distinguished features a Sony Entertainment Account need to be set up. The score is 9 out of 10.


The PlayStation app comes with a similar design to that of the PS4 menu. Before getting to the main menu, you must go through a user agreement and then log in to your PSN account with the same user ID and password as on your gaming console. On logging in, it takes you to the home screen, which includes game alerts, notifications, messages, etc. and an additional section that consists of the new competitions, YouTube videos, the blog and complete gaming catalog. Another new addition is the “What’s New” area which showcases what you have been playing. Gamers can also update their profile with trophies won and can access the list of their PSN friends. My mark of the interface is 10 out of 10.

Performance and User Experience

Compared to the old update, the new and improved PlayStation app comes with a clear-cut interface with a faster speed. However, there are some features on this app that can be modified to make it even better. These include that the Playstation store should not be an individual browser but should be a section of the app itself. For chatting you must utilize a separate app, so this should also be merged into the app. What most users find brilliant with this app is its handy on-the-go access, which allows them to make changes to their profile, upgrade and update their accounts even while being away from the central console. My mark is 9/10.

Cross-platform Use

The PlayStation App is compatible with both Android and iOS platforms and can be installed on any smartphone or tablet. However, if want to get access to some new features, you must make some in-app purchases.  My mark is 9/10.


The PlayStation App is free to utilize, therefore it’s a must try for those Playstation fanatics out there. The one features that stands out from the rest and makes it worth it, is its remote access functionality that allows gamers to make changes and upgrades directly via the store without being near their console. If you are the one who are passionate about gaming and who are incredibly competitive and keep track of your trophies and other player’s progress, then this Playstation app is definitely for you. With all the latest updates and alerts that are sent via notifications directly to your smartphone or tab, gamers can always stay connected and update their profiles on-the-go, keeping track of their network of friends and their gaming progress.

I’ll test your utility app for its functionality, usability and consistency. I provide manual testing on Android and iOS – the physical devices, and use emulators for other OSes.
