PS4 Gets Yet Another Mobile App
App number three.
A new PlayStation mobile app launches today, Sony has announced, this one focused on the PS4's Communities feature.
Appropriately titled PlayStation Communities, the app allows you to "stay in touch with your fellow PS4 gamers while away from the console," according to a PlayStation Blog post. Communities serve as almost like system-level clans, letting you join up to play games together or talk about shared interests.
The app allows you to access community profiles, discover and join new communities, and post text or images to community walls, among other things. Push notification support lets you get alerts whenever there's new activity.
This is all well and good, though it is somewhat strange that the functionality comes as a standalone app, rather than as a part of the main PlayStation app. In addition to that one, Sony offers a PlayStation Messages app, which is dedicated to viewing your PSN friends list and sending PSN messages.
Sony's latest app launches later today on iOS and Android.
