Absolutely MORONIC Concept 1/5
By Rob Mor
Hi my name is Sony. I want to win the console wars. I decided to help by building an iPhone app for my console. My impressive iPhone app needs 3 apps to do the features of 1 app (main, communities, messaging). I can even send notifications about messages through the main app, but you should probably just get a separate app for messaging because that's the only thing that makes sense.
Come on Sony get a clue! 1 star.
Playstation maintenance error 2/5
By H1gh D3ff
Please fix this app it keeps saying playstation is currently under going maintenance and its getting annoying
Gone phishing... 1/5
Literally as soon as I downloaded this someone messaged me phishing for my information. I don't know if it's just a coincidence or what, but I never had this problem before I downloaded this app. Going to delete it just to be safe.
One problem 4/5
I like the app, works well for its intended purpose. But if you can find a way to get the robots who do porn from messaging me, it would be lovely. Thank you.
New messages don't load in 1/5
For some reason I can't read or message people in new threads. Meaning if someone just messaged me it will not show up on the message app only PS4... kinda defeats the whole purpose of the app🤔
Interface and performance. Aghhhh!!! :( 2/5
By Pavel VK
With all the Apple SDK there, there is so many good ways to create a great/responsive/simple and beautiful messenger for PS environment. I use it a lot to communicate with my in game teammates outside of the voice-chat. And it takes a while to start it/sync it and send a message even on iPhone 7, It also gives you a network error every once in a while as you trying to send a 2-3word message :(
I think Sony® can do so much better job then Xbox® if they keep it well designed and user friendly on the front end. Same thing with PlayStation app and Community app. Blah. :(
Greatness have no time to await anymore!!! All the tools for it already here.
Good app 5/5
It's a really good app to download but they should have made the PlayStation app and this one combined rather then two separate ones
Terrible app 1/5
Even with a constant internet connection, wi-fi, LTE, doesn't matter. It doesn't refresh messages or update correctly when friends are logged on. Have to close the app and restart it all the time. Garbage app. The PS app should also be scrapped and fixed. PS is a great console but the apps are crap. If I could rate this a "0", I would.
Great for sore losers 5/5
I loooove getting instant salty tears straight tony phone while playing EA Sports NHL series EASHL... yassss!!!!
Can't sign in 1/5
I have had this app for a while and it worked perfectly fine for a short while, wasn't that bad. However, some update ago required me to sign-in. I put in my email and password but once I get to the part where I prove I'm not a robot, I either can't hear the numbers/words (yes, I checked if my sound was on), or I can't even type in the numbers/words. Sometimes I couldn't do either. I would like to properly use the app if it would just let me sign in.
I copy and pasted this review to the Playstation app as well. It was happening there too.
EDIT: After playing around with it, I figured out that the 'proving you're not a robot' part is poorly communicated. It doesn't tell you how many times you have to do listen and enter the numbers. Even then it still didn't let me enter numbers properly and I had to do a lot of tapping at my screen for it to function. I'm signed in now, but it took me months and a sit down. Please fix this poor sign in problem.
Make parties 5/5
By Monster man47
The only thing bad is that i want to join a party on my phone
By Nick nick nick lick
Second screen doesn't work
Why several apps? 4/5
This should be in the PlayStation app not a separate app.
HOW DUFUQ DO U CHANGE THE TEXT COLOR
By Rep Kauai
It's like the app has been neglected and left to fend for itself. I've noticed more and more bugs lately. I have been getting PSN Is down for maintenance messages and others have stated they can't even read messages. Their screen is just blank.
App keeps saying PlayStation is going on maintenance 1/5
By Joe Roldan
Each time I send a message it says PlayStation is going under maintenance and my messages don't send so I resend and sometimes it send but every time the same thing happens and my messages don't send please fix this
FIX THIS APP!!! PLEASE FOR THE LOVE OF GOD! 1/5
By Under-tale fan
I don't understand why used to you wouldn't need to put in all those codes! Now you have to, besides the part that its hard to remember them all, theres the god forbidden "are you a robot"! Please change it back to the old way! I loved the app until this update! Please to the good lord above fix that! If it didn't need it before, I shouldn't need it now!
Worst message app ever 1/5
By GoPro Lifer
Never works. Pictures aren't correct when you post, doubles up messages, constantly says Server Under Maintenance... literally rather do ANY other message platform. I've moved my PS4 "groups" to Slack and GroupMe. We try as little as possible to do anything except video games, since Sony can't handle it. Messages? Really? That's where you have trouble? Text messages have been around for 20 years... figure it out, morons
Update the app already 1/5
When Messaging people it shows that there's 2 people in the message, the other guy and my own name so whenever I message instead of being blue and on the right, it's on the left and gray as if my own message was sent to myself
So many bugs need to be fixed 1/5
By Pie 3000)$$
Problem with the app not letting you log in? And at random times will stop letting you send messages. This makes it a pain to download and re download the app multiple times in one day.
Separate Apps 2/5
Really annoying that I can't just message from the PlayStation app and need a second app for messaging
Really bad 1/5
Extremely slow messaging app. Sometimes it can even take up to several minutes to retrieve the new messages, even with a very good internet connection. Absolutely unacceptable considering the fact that it's part of a premium PAID service
Forces you to download separate apps for basic functionality 1/5
Making people download separate apps for different features is totally asinine
No. Garbage. Won't even let me sign in. Keyboard won't respond when listening to the numbers to type in cause it thinks I'm a robot. Gr8 app Sony. You dumb morons.
Sony's a POS 1/5
Why can't I simply message from the playstation app? I have to download this pos to message and then it has major bugs. Deleted it in 4 minutes of use. Useless.
SOO BUGGY NOW 1/5
Cant send messages... shows i have a message when i really sent it ... when i try to delete a message says "playstation is undergoing maintenance" message wont load !!! app is mess ... but trying to send messages on ps4 is also a problem
I used to like this app, it would never give me any problems but recently it has been so annoying! I can't send ANY messages with or without wifi !! at first I thought it was a bug so I deleted and re installed, but that didn't work and now I can't talk to my friends ): please fix
This app could be better 3/5
Once again...The app is great but you should be able to create and join parties on the app. Also on the messenger app you should be able to get the message quicker with out going through the ps main menu first. When I sent a message it pops up that I received it has a message. The app is also kind of slow when you have to receive a message
Decent app. 👌 4/5
I think It's a fine app for messages, even if it's odd that they couldn't leave the message option on their other app. I would like to see how long ago my friends were online though. Other than that, it's prefect for chatting with your friends without getting on your PlayStation. 👍
NOT WORKING CURRENTLY 1/5
It won't let me send messages, will log me out even after I've just logged in. Won't even send me notifications that I've gotten messages. I'd love this to be fixed ASAP it's been going on for months with different people and it, Surprise Surprise, hasn't been fixed.
I love the app but it's kinda hard to use the unusable.
It's ok 3/5
By Dear Sweeny Heather
It has some bugs but it's conviennent, also it'd be nice if we could join partys to talk instead of just messaging.
Not working correctly 3/5
After last update it wouldn't let me send messages and kept getting a failed message. I uninstalled it and reinstalled and seems to be working correctly now.
Once worked great 1/5
It used to be awesome, but now you can't even send a message. It's been so long, why isn't it fixed?
Latest update wont let me sign in 1/5
By NOT CHEESY
Aside from that when it did work on the least reset it waiuld frequently freeze and need hard resets
Never loads 1/5
Messages never load and when they do it takes forever to load up. I have to close the app everytime
Error "Cannot Send Message" 1/5
Please fix the app ASAP! I can view my messages & receive them BUT I cannot send messages back! I always get errors & sometimes they won't load up fast enough.
I hate this app 1/5
The fact that I can no longer see messages in the other PlayStation app makes me hate Sony. I hate having to use this stupid app!!!!
Something needs to be fixed 2/5
By Harold the hoe
This app was awesome for quickly sending messages, but for the past month or so i have been unable to send messages; instead i am given a "failed to send" notice every time. Additionally, any incoming messages wont show up in the app until i close and restart the app.
Either leave it alone or test it before pushing this out. 1/5
Before this past update this worked well, but as usual they can't get out of their own way when creating "updates" for these apps.
Used to work great, now it's broken 1/5
By Clash addict
I can't send messages period. No avatars either... so the only reason anyone would download this app is now void
Why do I need a separate app for messages.
Message bug 1/5
By Edgar 1515
Nothing works, nothing sends. At the moment it's a useless app.
Fix your app.
App is trash 1/5
I've used this app for about 6 months and up until these last 3-5 weeks I can't send messages and now I don't even get notified when people send me messages. The app is really buggy and consistently asks me to resign to then have all my stuff lag out and never load or I can't even use the basic function " message people or take care of my messages while away from the controller" don't get this app
App is soo bad. 1/5
One thing Sony can't do is make an app that work for messaging! Xbox got the app right!
Used to work 1/5
Now it's just trash and inoperable. I can't send a single message. For a while it would work if I left the conversation and started it over but now not even that works. 👎🏻👎🏻
Good app but very bugged 1/5
About 2 weeks ago I stopped receiving message notifications both on the app and on my PS4. It also constantly says "cannot send message" whenever I try to message someone from the app. It would be great if this bug was addressed/fixed.
Ok Sony everybody got the same problem fix it 1/5
By PS3 jklfire14
So my PlayStation app is messed up I can't send messages and my name shows in the top alone with his name like I'm messaging that person my profile picture is grated out and sitting right next to the person I'm trying to message I get the same error cannot send message even on my PS4 I no longer receive notifications my messages are messed up on PlayStation as well u need to respond to this problem and fix it
Speaking the obvious. 2/5
Do you really need the PSN app and the messages app to be separate? Seeeeeeems a little silly.
Was great, now it's broken 1/5
By Jon Montana
"Cannot send message" on any and every message I try to write. Pleaseeeeee fix
