Ratings and Reviews
Essentially useless as is :(
The two main things I’d like to use this for, I’m not allowed to. For one thing, you can’t have this open/being used and have a controller on at the same time; it acts as if another controller is being turned on so it only allows one or the other. So if say, I wanna have this open while I play so I can type quickly on here and still quickly jump back to my controller, I'd have to go through the whole controller changing process. So I end up just being able to type faster staying on my controller. Another thing with that, if I decide I’d like to use my phone as my screen and just have my ps4 on and play with my controller, that doesn’t work either. I don’t see why the app can’t be connected with a controller working too so this can be possible.
The second thing, if I wanna just use it for one of the most basic functions possible, connecting to my ps4 to watch something streaming on there with my phone as the screen (or even to be allowed to just use the app as a remote while watching on the tv), that doesn’t work either 😑 because streaming videos are “blocked content” for the app. I don’t get it. This app could be one of the coolest things but why even make it if it doesn’t do what it would be most useful for.
Lots of Potential!
This app has a lot of potential for the future. After attempting to give it a test with Apex Legends, I came to the realization that I simply cannot press all the buttons needed at the same time when under combat. The controls disappeared after a few seconds and I ended up pressing outside the button boundaries. I have not yet tested an external BT controller, so I might see if it has this functionality at a later time. But as for using it to control apps and services. It works great. The chat function works great, but it would be a nice feature addition to use it for only chat with no game audio or video. The quality and framerate is amazing if you have a 100mbs+ internet connection from both host and target networks. As this app was just released this morning, I'm sure there are lots more features and functionality planned as the technology evolves. Overall, this app works great as a way to play simple arcade or basic controlled games and is a nice remote, but not ideal for playing FPS or more robust games where you need better hand eye coordination. We’ll see what time has to offer.
I was super excited when I saw that this was released. I work from home, so when I am off, I like to get out of the house. I usually end up at my favorite local coffee shop to read and decompress, I also bring my Nintendo Switch so I am able to game away from home. When I saw I could play my PS4 from my iPhone and iPod, I quickly purchased the Nimbus controller so I could get this going. Unfortunately, this requires a strong WIFI and Upload/Download speed from ISP and does not allow you to use your phones carrier’s network. I have never had issueS with the Vita and remote playing, and would just use it, but playing a majority of the games with the Vita is impossible. I have tried every setting possible in this app for resolution and frame rate, but only have been able to connect once. The connection I am on pulls a constant 20mbps for download and 10mbps for upload, but I always get the weak connection error. Of course it works fine from home, and in local mode, my PS4 is connected by Ethernet cables. My ISP is at 100mbps download and 10mbps upload. Something needs to be done about this, when other streaming services work fine on the same connection.
