PlayStation Network App - Explained at last!

Earlier today on the Official EU PlayStation Blog, Sony finally went into more detail about the upcoming PlayStation Network App for iOS and Android. Up until now all we have really known is that the app would be free for download, it would feature some basic PSN features (such as the ability to access your friends list), and that it would be released on the same day as the PlayStation 4. It turns out that the PlayStation Network App will have a wide verity of features, and it will in fact be closely connected with your PlayStation 4. This isn't just some application that allows you to check your friends list, or compare trophies; it actually goes deeper than that.

With the new app, PSN members will be able to gain access to all of the features available on PSN. You will be able to access your friends list, send them messages (both vocal and text based), you'll be able to compare trophies with them, and you will be able to see their latest activity. On top of that, the app will also allow you to actually stream what your friends are playing to your mobile device, you will be able to accept game invites, and some games will also connect to the app for extra features/for a mobile gameplay experience. Basically, the PSN App will allow you to do just about everything you can on your PlayStation 4, without actually being on your PlayStation 4. It will even allow you to access the PSN Store, buy games, and download them while you are away from home.

If you are planning on picking up a PlayStation 4, and if you own a mobile device that runs on iOS or Android, the PlayStation Network App is sure to be a must have. It will keep you connected with your games no matter where you go, as well a with your friends.
