Why the second screen doesn’t work ? 1/5
sometimes works, other times doesn't 1/5
By J Carmichael5366
this is ok when it wants to work, have my time is taken up fighting with the app to even work and seeing that it has been updated for two month. i would say it's not worth it.
I'm not sure how a feature could get worse but it did. The swipe control used to work perfectly. Now, it is registering wrong inputs.
Please optimize the UI for iPhone X 4/5
The app is really handy for typing instead of using the PS4 keyboard. The only downside of the app is that it’s not yet optimized for the iPhone X
Can’t find ps4 1/5
Fix your app
Doesn’t do much 1/5
Considering this is an entirely separate app, it doesn’t do much. Only real thing you can do is press the PlayStation button to go to your home screen. What does that do? It’d be cool if there were the actual buttons (square, triangle, circle, etc) so I could pause Netflix, browse and do other things besides go to my PlayStation home screen. Entirely separate app for no reason.
Connects but doesn’t function the way you think 1/5
The app has no problem downloading or connecting to my PS4. However, the only function the app provides is the ability to hit the “PS button” to take you back to the home menu screen. The app doesn’t serve the function to browse through apps like Hulu or Netflix. The app, in my experience, was a mere means of returning back and forth to the menu screen. App needs some redesigning. I would be happy to pay a few dollars for an app that can deliver in the ways I want it to.
Lacking everything 1/5
By Chef Eddie 29
Whats the point of a separate app when it just has basic bare bones functions. Let me use my phone as a controller for Netflix, Amazon, VRV. This made no sense to have it separate at all
It works but only in the home screen not any apps or anything. I know you can play games with it but I wish you could at least be able to use it for Hulu and Netflix. Stuff like that.
Unnecessary Third App.... 1/5
Why separate the all in one app you had? Three different apps for specific things is just too discombobulating. Plus the second screen app doesn’t even work. Every time I try to connect with my ps4 it says no ps4 found.... What the heck Sony? Why have you ruined such a great app?
Works OK to turn in PS4 remotely 3/5
By Fed-up ranger
...but, it’s essentially a wasted app otherwise.
Convenient when I’m not immediately near the console or the controllers from another room.
The ability to see chat during streaming is OK, but has lag.
-The frustrating thing is whenever I first open the app, the ‘Help’ screen pops up every time.
Inexplicably useless 1/5
It’s only responsive in the main PlayStation menu...if you try to go to YouTube or Netflix it just stops working.
Had a great app until 1/5
The playstation app use to be so useful and it actually worked with messages and second screen now I need a separate app that doesn't even work and can hardly ever connect to ps4
Non functioning 1/5
By FaZe Contage
This app never worked on my iPhone SE when I did all the steps correctly on it and my PS4.I would like to know why I can’t use my phone as a second screen!
By Beastly kid232
This app serves no purpose. If you have your controller you don’t need this. I thought this would be an app that could replace a tv but no
Not good 1/5
It won't even work every time it just says this screen is not in use
Needs connection improvement 1/5
By ConcussionWave (ps4 gamertag)
I try connecting it to my ps4, but it just keeps saying “no ps4 found”
Fix it. I want to use my tablet on this thing
For all the reviewers putting 1-3 stars 5/5
U have to have 3 apps? Get more space on ur phone u 8-16 gb ppl upgrade unless ur poor🤷🏽♂️
Can’t see in the night? Raise ur brightness stupid🤦🏽♂️
Not working 1/5
I downloaded this app and used the numbers on the screen and it keeps saying that the numbers aren’t correct when they are.
Yay, A third app 1/5
Literally no reason to have three apps. Microsoft managed to make their app do more than Sony, all while keeping it ONE app. This is completely unnecessary.
The app was great... 2/5
...when it worked. I like the ability to use my phone for text chat. Problem is, my app no longer detects my PS4. Both are on the same Wi-Fi, it worked fine a week ago, tried logging out and back in, uninstall and reinstall, but nothing is working. This is rather unfortunate and I’d like to use the app again. Please read this Sony and fix this issue.
Can only navigate home screen 2/5
I wanted this so I could use Netflix and YouTube without needing a controller and it doesn’t work. You can basically just open apps and move around the home screen. This needs more use in apps.
i cant do it while i poo 1/5
By Kid fuelsbhhhh
so while im gaming gamin sometimes i need to take a big old poo. this was problematic because i could not take my console and tv into my bathroom. i was going to go to a store to buy some extension cord but then i found this app. I CAN FINALLY POO WHILE PLAYING GAMES. but alas the app dose not work. so i went and bought the extension cord and connected them. this got me in trouble because while i was moving my tv my mom spotted me and drop kicked it across the hall. now all i have is a ps4 and extension cords, thanks sony.
Doesn’t work 1/5
I got a ps4 pro and I cannot find my ps4 even on 3 different network channels that my phone and ps4 are capable of using.
Doesn’t work 3/5
When I bring up the app it can not find my PS4. I am on the same account and network and it still won’t work. Would love if it did as it seems really useful. Edit: I recently bought a brand new PS4 pro and it still can not find my PS4. I am at a college university but I would think that that wouldn’t matter. 2 PS4s and 0 connections. I really want this to work.
The main reason I downloaded this App was to use my phone instead of the PS4 controller. However, it almost never connects to my PS4, forcing me to use the controller instead. And sometimes I even have to add my phone as a device again. I’ve already added this phone 3 times.
The app is good but... 2/5
I honestly think there should be joysticks and all the other buttons so I can navigate more easily. It does the job somewhat well but it does have the one flaw where you are limited for navigation. (Yes I know that you can just tap to enter but that does not substitute for the x button)
Not what I expected 1/5
I thought this would allow me to play my ps4 games. But the app does its job for what it is. It would be nice if they made a actual way to play ps4 on your phone. I would have gave 5 stars if it was what I thought it was! If ur trying to play ps4 on your phone go to the App Store and buy r-play works fine for me if you don’t believe me look it up on YouTube it’s pretty good and fun🔥🔥🔥🔥🔥🔥🔥🔥🔥🔥🔥🔥🔥💯💯💯💯💯💯💯💯💯💯💯💯💯
Doesnt Work 1/5
I don't care if it's a separate app. I just want to be able to chat without using the controller to type. It refuses to recognize my PS4. I've uninstalled and reinstalled the app and verified that it's on the same network. Still no go. A great idea, but it looks like Im going to have to but a peripheral keyboard after all.
Just combine it with the main app 2/5
Just combine this app with the main PlayStation app it’s silly to have to switch back and forth. The Xbox app had this exact feature combined in its app not to long ago.
Doesn’t work in Vue 1/5
It doesn’t work in Vue. The home button works but that’s it.
Barely works 2/5
This app is kind of bad. It only connects half the time, when you try to control certain things (like YouTube) it crashes, can lag, etc. Overall it isn’t a good app.
I downloaded this so I wouldn’t have to use a controller for streaming apps but once you open Hulu and amazon prime and the like it ceases to function, so it’s completely useless to me
Whenever I type using the app it says a space is an invalid character. Resulting in me not being able to type any further unless I get rid of any spaces. Fix this.
No value of use for this app. 1/5
It’s BASIC functionality won’t even let you control something like HULU.. which all apps have the tie in for ps4s own controller.. so why not this software flexible app?? Roku’s app does this why not PS4s app?
Well enjoy, it’s another half assed piece of software made by a top tier company electronics company.
Can’t even connect 1/5
By trill toni
I download this app hyped, super happy thinking I can play PS on my phone and I try to connect. I set up my stuff and I type in the code it gives and it keeps saying wrong code or whatever. Really good app but needs work.
WiFi problem 2/5
I’ve been trying to connect my phone to my PlayStation but every time I open the app it says I have to connect to a WiFi network when I’m connected to WiFi. Please fix this.
Never works 1/5
Awesome! Another PlayStation software that doesn’t work! Playstation 4 system doesn’t show up whatsoever. Did everything, nothing works.
At this point I’m not surprised that Sony isn’t trying anymore.
Reviews ARE for complaining! 1/5
Another split app but no new functionality. What’s the point?
Once you’re in an app such as Netflix, it doesn’t control anything, what’s the point?
By Alien tissues
You just needed one app
If you want a crappy version of your controller that doesn’t work in game, this is the app for you. Second screen isn’t a thing, and I literally pressed one button on the app and it put my PlayStation in sleep mode.
Not good 1/5
App only works to navigate main PlayStation screen. Can not navigate any PlayStation apps such as Netflix, YouTube, etc. Remote control functions stop once one of the PlayStation apps is started.
It would be best for Sony to remove these apps from the App Store. This is really embarrassing that a company with a great reputation would allow these apps to be seen by the public. Either deliver the quality, or don’t offer any apps like this.
Why doesn’t this work in apps. Hulu doesn’t respond to the second screen app.
Useless for quick text, terrible color design 1/5
The color choices are terrible for night time use. I think an intern made this. If there isn’t going to be a night mode, then make all the screens a single light or dark color so displays can be inverted.
The worst part is the terrible lag between trying to type on screen and the app registering you’re ready to type. It takes 10 seconds and rocket league so that makes the app completely useless. How did the old original app work flawlessly for three years?
Doesn't work 1/5
My phone connects fine, but I can control anything. This app is useless. This used to work before they made it a separate app...
Not functional 1/5
Doesn’t even work when you open Netflix.
Stop splitting everything up 1/5
Why on earth are you guys separating all of these options from the main app??! This is so dumb, goodness... 🤦🏾♂️
Doesn’t work 1/5
I’m not complaining about the apps being separated, as it’s been covered. But this apps features have been removed from the original app and added to its very own, dedicated app. You would think that should mean it would work. I mean, it has ONE JOB to do. And *spoiler alert* IT DOESN’T. I even sat right in front of the PS4 only for this app to tell me alternately there was no PS4 found or that it couldn’t connect to it in time. Fantastic.
Quit Separating Apps!! 1/5
This is the 3rd time now that Sony has separated yet another feature from its original app, instead of 1 app, we now have 3. That is not progress Sony, it’s not that hard. You’ve made convenient and neat into time consuming and irrational
