Ratings and Reviews
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.
Great but not flawless
Update: found out it was a setting for my WiFi connection 😅
I love using the PlayStation App so I can easily see which friends of mine are online check out the streamer recommendations, but one thing I use it for more than anything else is the quick access to PlayStation Store. This is my number one use for this app and now it is the one feature that will not work. For the past several months I will go to the PlayStation Store from the App and it will connect for about 5 seconds and then say “network connection lost.” A few attempts laters and it still won’t connect, meanwhile I go to the Store on my browser and it works just fine. Don’t know why the app doesn’t work, but I wish it would get fixed soon.
P.s. Absolutely LOVE the new interface update. Looks amazing!
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?
