Doesn’t work 1/5
It only works on home WiFi. It’s basically useless. No matter how strong my internet connection is, it won’t connect. You can’t use it as a second controller so what’s the point. Why would you use your phone at home when you have a controller there.
use contoroller 3/5
why we cant use contoroller while using this app
Cannot use ps4 controller 2/5
That basically makes the app pointless
Great start 3/5
Great idea but would be perfect if I could still use the ps4 controller. Using phone or tablet does not allow you to push all buttons required to control your character.
Ideal for some games 5/5
By PsnID- outaku
I can see this working for visual novels and turn based games but if you want to use it for normal games you need a compatible controller. I hope support for the PS4 controller is added in a future update.
Won’t let me connect to my ps4 at all.
Needs work 2/5
I can stream HD video on my network but remote play doesn’t connect any higher than 360p res on my 40mbps down connection...it’s just not useful like this
Pretty good 5/5
This is a pretty cool app but it needs some fixes and it would be better if you could connect this with your controller
Good app but not what im looking for 2/5
By Anthony portillo
I was hoping maybe i could use game chat or party chat through the app while i played normally on my controller since the mic on my headphones don't work on the controller, and i was able to chat but i cant use the controller at the same time, they should add an option to just use the chats and be able to play with the controller normally
NEEDS DUALSHOCK 4 SUPPORT 4/5
The only thing that’s keeping the full five star rating is the lack of the DualShock 4 support, which by today’s standards should be possible.
Sony please consider the following. Given that “R-Play” doesn’t support DualShock 4 because of your regulations, you would think that your new remote play app would support such function. Considering that there are Lightning to Micro USB cables that can and could connect to the DualShock 4, but the new iPads with the ProMotion Display could take full advantage of the app with the along sided support of USB-C to Micro USB DualShock 4 support. Such wired connections have been tested with a “Rotor Riot” control that was recommended by R-Play’s support team and shows great promise in DualShock support. This would not only users to your platform but ensure some brand loyalty among gratefully accepting new fans from the iOS platform. I’m doing so would provide reduce latency and the absolute best experience on any remote play platform like it is available on Mac!
Please provide support for the newest OLED displays on the iPhone X, XS, XS Max for maximum quality support and also the resizing and some remapping of the onscreen controller. Some opacity tweaks would go along way as well. Maybe allow LTE support on the newer devices don’t you think?
Ok so apart from all of that this app is pretty amazing. In terms of resolution and sharpness, it beats everything else. The optimization is great and can only get better. Please continue to improve on this since you guy are a bit late to the game in terms of this, and be open to forms of improving the app via the consumers.
Since the support for the PS vita and PSP is over, it’s times to turn over a new leaf and to try to take sales from the Switch.
Thanks for the app and please consider our requests Sony!
Will not connect 1/5
So when the app first came out it worked and then the past couple days it has not wanted to connect to it even after I’ve entered the code manually it still will not connect I want to give it five stars if it worked plz fix
Can’t use a controller and the app 3/5
I wish I could go and play in the bathroom (don’t judge me) which is next to my PS4. But turning the controller on disables the app.
Best PS Feature, IF You Have The Right Setup 5/5
When first using the app I was disappointed by not being able to use a PS Controller because the onscreen controls were difficult to use (the more practice the better you’ll adapt to it, though). A few minutes into playing a game on my iPad Pro I thought to try connecting my steelseries Nimbus controller that I originally purchased to play games on Apple TV. After pairing the Nimbus to the iPad I was playing games easily on my iPad (with case the props it up) while also being able to watch news, shows, movies, etc on my Apple TV.
It’s really expanded my ability to multitask and also frees up the TV for room mates, partners, kids, guests, etc. to use. If you have the right setup this could be the perfect app for you. If you only have an iPhone, or even just the iPad (no stand, controller) it may be difficult until you get used to the controls, even then it won’t be the same.
*steelseries Nimbus controller will not have all buttons that the PS controller has. Missing: L3/R3, Touchpad, PS Button, Share and headset connection.
Check the controls of your favorite games first. If it’s a slow paced game you can use the onscreen controls for those missing on the controller.
Clearly No Effort Involved 2/5
Firstly, for those that don’t know, Sony bought Gaiku (first video game streaming service) and morphed it into remote-play and PlayStation Now. So even though they’ve had a solution for >a decade, Google stocks are rising because Stadia is already expected to deliver better options, better prices, and better support.
Unless Sony signs a partnership with Apple (i.e. DualShock/MFi support), this app is already dead on the vine.
R-Play is a better solution, has more features, and had to fight Sony hard in the process. It’s been on the market for years — and Sony would’ve been better off buying it/them outright.
Xbox has a much better remote play experience, and is, increasingly, working with Google and Nintendo to make their options entirely cross platform.
With all that said: Microsoft and Google will kill this market, simply by consumer choices. Better controller support, better software, and cheaper hardware is already winning the race.
I was excited until I realized that Sony did nearly nothing except compile the MacOS/Win client — which was never a paramount task. Sony seems to be taking notes from Valve/Atari/Amiga. 🤨
Makes no sense 1/5
By 30characters or less ios
Why can’t I use my controller on my phone with my primary account? I have to switch to a second account(made it so I can play my games but no data transfers over). Who ever thought playing ps4 games on your phone was a great idea? It is but for touch screen?! Cmon. Please fix the support for the controller to phones with primary accounts.
Bad movement problem 1/5
I look to the left and my movement turn so late and slow and not good to handle the controls
I can’t figure out how to use 1 feature 4/5
So when I load up the app, I can connect via LAN but, for example I was at a hotel far from my PS4,I can’t use the remote play.it says “Connecting using WiFi” or something like that but even after ten minutes still says that.it would be helpful if there were some kind of guide or something but generally besides that th app is amazing.
At last 4/5
It’s great to finally see an official PS4 Remote Play app, after seeing excellent third party ones taken down. The app works well and is easy to set up. I was half expecting to not see controller support, but thankfully it worked flawlessly with my PXN Speedy. Two suggestions though: 1. Most controllers on the market don’t have L3/R3 support, please allow the mapping of combos to replace them (or even better complete button remapping) 2. Please release an Apple TV App, so we can play in TVs on other rooms without lugging around our consoles.
DualShock Support using Remote Play 4/5
The title is pretty straight forward. Can you please add DualShock support while Remote Play is active? It’s annoying having 2 accounts just to use a duelshock 4 on my PlayStation
So, I was hyped up for this but it always says “couldn’t register PS4”🤦♂️
PS engineering teams - OMG 1/5
Error Code CE-35413-6
Description: PIN code for RemotePlay is incorrect.
Recommended Action: Enter the correct PIN code.
This kind of stuff just shows you how utterly poor the engineering and QA in these huge companies really is.
And people think we have A. I.
Needs DualShock support 4/5
This app is definitely a cool feature, but I don’t see how I will be able to play the majority of my gaming catalog unless it was a turn based RPG.
Need Controller 🎮 1/5
Please please add a controller!!!! 🎮🎮🎮🎮🎮🎮🎮🎮🎮🎮🎮🎮🎮
Could you please add a feature where you can use the controller and remote play that would be really cool that’s the only reason I’m rating this app 3 star
Dualshock add and it will be great. 2/5
it would be great when I could use dualshock4. a useless application without dualshock.
Thanks PlayStation, very cool (but please fix some stuff) 4/5
By Playstation for life
First of all, if your gonna make us play with touch, please make the buttons much bigger. I’ll be mashing a button and wondering why nothing is happening. Then I realize that I’m not pressing the button directly, and the joystick will spawn at my thumbs. Second, set boundaries for where the joystick can spawn. For example, do not let the joystick be where the buttons are at. Third, allow a wired connection between the controller and the device through adaptors and cables. I understand that apple wont read ps4 controllers through bluetooth, so please allow a wired connection. And maybe, just maybe, one day, will you allow people to connect to remote play from ANYwhere they want to? Maybe through a cloud or something? Or just for ps plus members. That would be amazing. Thank you!
Needs improvement 2/5
Layout looks great, however does not work over cellular device “LTE”. Only WiFi and connecting to PS4 takes a while and not guaranteed to connect on first attempt. I have fiber optic throughout my home with download/upload connection speeds up to 1000 MBPS and I still get an error stating my signal is too weak from a hardwired connection.
I TOTALLY RECOMMEND 5/5
This app might be a little glitchy when the second controller is activated but it’s still AWSOME, when my mom won’t let me hook up my PS4 downstairs I can grab my laptop or my phone and play god of war, Apex and even Fortnite, I love the app and thanks for making it awesome 👍
It’s almost good 2/5
By Q The God
This is a great start to something very special when and if you can connect your controller to the phone this would be crazy. I found one more downside to this, and it’s Netflix. I thought I was on to something and was gonna let my controller charge and use the app as a remote but that sadly wasn’t the way it went😔
A solid (not perfect) first effort 4/5
It may be way too early to do a full-on review as I usually do, but I’d have to say this app is a pretty solid first attempt.at bringing remote-access tech across to iOS. If one should have a fairly recent device, then this app makes gaming a snap to set up. The ability to play, for example, Dragon Quest from a second screen should be welcome to those who often battle with housemates for the television. No one else in the industry does it quite like this. Not Nintendo, and certainly not Microsoft. That being said, there are a few things missing at this early stage. Having independent controller support would be a great start. But add too much at once, or start stepping on other people‘s toes as other apps may have done, and we may lose a strong asset. In the meanwhile, we can only hope Sony keeps pounding out the bugs. If they have a fun-sized forge, this will get better.
Can’t even connect MY phone to MY PS4. It’s so stupid. I keep getting the CE-35406-8 error code no matter how many times I’ve tried it. This is MY PS4, it’s MY phone. Why is there a problem?
Add login 4/5
Login is all you need to connect to this please add
How to use a controller with this 5/5
Create a separate account which takes about 5 minutes and login on the PS4. Login to that account with this app and then turn on your controller. Choose your main account and you’re good to go.
Omg thank you PlayStation 5/5
Great with the gamevice
Has so much potential ! 2/5
Sluggy 😩😩 but i can tell it’s gonna get better !
Great job and has lots of potential 5/5
It's is amzing and works great on my iPhone. I wouldn't recommend play games like ”call of duty” which requires press multiple buttons at the same time. In the future updates, I hope to see if we can use the controller and the phone separately. This would allow us to play more combat games. For now, I used it to play games like hand of fate, which works fabulous!
Pretty nice for games like NBA 2k 5/5
I use this locally when I am at home. Normally when my luv is taking up the living room TV. I don’t use this app to really play a game but just to set things up like NBA 2k Online Association. So for that one aspect, I love the app. Very responsive and smooth enough to perform the operations I want it to.
It won’t work 1/5
When I open the app it says “Start” when I press on it it takes me to a white screen then says “Cannot Load, Refresh?” when I press “Refresh” it does the same thing over again. I don’t understand why it doesn’t work since I have very good internet
First few days I was able to use the app now it won’t let me remote play anymore. Another trash app made by PlayStation.
If Jesus was a phone app 5/5
This is the greatest thing ever invented. The technology is unreal, the quality is just as good as it is on the real console. Yes, it can be difficult to manipulate the controls, and yes, the range can be improved, but the concept is phenomenal and the execution is unmatched. I’m so excited to see where this goes in the future
Needs Dualshock 4 support 1/5
Really cool, but if I can’t link my controller then this is worthless.
Needs controller support 1/5
It’s not realistic to expect console controls to translate to a screen. Add DS4 support and this app would be nothing short of epic. Seriously I wanted to love this app... and I still could, but not without controller support... and android phones have it... please update it Sony.
Essentially useless as is :( 2/5
The two main things I’d like to use this for, I’m not allowed to. For one thing, you can’t have this open/being used and have a controller on at the same time; it acts as if another controller is being turned on so it only allows one or the other. So if say, I wanna have this open while I play so I can type quickly on here and still quickly jump back to my controller, I'd have to go through the whole controller changing process. So I end up just being able to type faster staying on my controller. Another thing with that, if I decide I’d like to use my phone as my screen and just have my ps4 on and play with my controller, that doesn’t work either. I don’t see why the app can’t be connected with a controller working too so this can be possible.
The second thing, if I wanna just use it for one of the most basic functions possible, connecting to my ps4 to watch something streaming on there with my phone as the screen (or even to be allowed to just use the app as a remote while watching on the tv), that doesn’t work either 😑 because streaming videos are “blocked content” for the app. I don’t get it. This app could be one of the coolest things but why even make it if it doesn’t do what it would be most useful for.
Almost perfect 5/5
Right now their are very few problems.But they are major.First of all this does not work well on multiplayer at all.
Signing In 4/5
This app is great... my login password doesn’t have numbers in it and when I log on through this it asks for a number passcode and doesn’t giv me any other option. Please help...
Needs settings and options 4/5
Pretty cool to play a console off my old iPhone (6). My big beef is the controls disappear after 2.5 seconds and while playing baseball, it takes longer for a pitch to get delivered than that so I lose buttons and can’t swing and down goes my BA. and as far as I can tell there’s no settings option in the app to change this.
It saves the money of buying a $60 remote
App Review 3/5
The quality is what ruins the app other than that its great
Love this app thank you PlayStation 5/5
This app is this best thank you so much playstation appreciate all you do for us as loyal customer
