With the launch of the PlayStation 4 now only two days away, Sony has rolled out an update to the game console’s companion mobile apps on iOS and Android today.
Besides turning your mobile device with the app into second screen controllers for supported games, the Playstation app also emphasizes a lot on social interaction. You can see what your friends are playing, compare trophies, and chat with your friends. It also sends notifications, game alerts and invitations, and lets you use your mobile device as an on-screen keyboard for your PS4.
Buying games for your PS4 also becomes more convenient with the app — all you have to do is browse the PlayStation store, pick up the games you want, then push them to your PS4 system so you can play immediately when you get home.
