Well worth 12 bucks for older iPad 5/5
The new ps remote app does not work with older ipads! This is why I will never buy another apple product!!!!! This is your only option for remotely playing the PS4 on your iPad, and it works great. You definitely need an Ethernet connection your your PS4. Setting up remote play via my phone was a headache but definitely doable....you really need to setup a static IP address and then paste in the necessary ports from the help section of the appinto the port section of your router...This app makes your PS4 mobile!! I can play NHL 19 off my 4G hotspot!! Great app!!!
DON'T PAY FOR THIS 1/5
By Big John 7780
Instead of paying for this app you can download it for free from PlayStation.
The app is useless now ps4 remote play is out and it is free unlike this app
Mac OS 5/5
It would be great that this app is for MAC OS as well. Better working than the original PSN app. Please consider to create app for the Mac OS. Sure to be downloaded from my side.
Better than a Vita 5/5
No lie...I sold my Vita because I found more use in this app.
There’s 2 keys though:
1. Learn how to open the ports on your router so you can internet play on your data anywhere in the world. Also have your PS4 connected via Ethernet.
2. Get a wireless Bluetooth controller or what I personally use, a GameVice controller. I wouldn’t seriously use this app without one, unless the game you’re playing is simple and doesn’t require advanced controls.
Once you do these 2 things you’ll be able to pretty much use this anywhere for any game.
Surprisingly good 5/5
So far it works better than either the official PC/Mac/iOS app or my Vita. I can use the power shell for my iPhone SE for the non analog controls. Uses some battery though but that is to be expected. It even works over the internet, which is more than I can say for the official app which is waaaay to finicky about consistent connection speeds.
I’m shocked 5/5
I honestly didn’t expect this to work so well. I would recommend this if you have a 5G network though. Anything shower and I think there would be major delays.
Why better than remote play that Sony offers 5/5
The biggest reason why this is why better is because you don’t have to be inside the house you can be anywhere and play ps4
When It Works, It’s Okay, But It’s Inconsistent 3/5
3/5; Lacks consistent image quality, even on 1000 mb/s internet speeds.
I got it to work, but the quality is terrible, the games don’t stop lagging, etc. I’m playing on an iPhone XR by the way.
Well now... 5/5
Hate to say this, but it looks like you got upped by Sony.
Will be perfect with full custom HUD 4/5
Great app but would benefit from expanding the custom controls so that each button can be moved and scaled individually, with total edge of screen placement all around. Minimizing the scale to which a button can be resized would be good too, as I like to make some functions small on iPad due to the larger screen than phone. One update with this and you’d have a true game changer!
No longer needed 1/5
There’s an official SONY Remote Play on the APP store now that is FREE
Can I get refund now that Sony has released an official remote play
Doesn’t Deserve 1 Star Reviews 5/5
The app worked well for what it is. I bought it a little over 3 months ago, obviously if I knew Sony was gonna make a free 1st party app I would’ve waited. Am I upset I paid for it? Yes and No. I received what I paid for just to see Sony release a 1st party version. The app is great but like others have pointed out, there is now a free Sony PS Remote Play app.
Do not buy!!! 1/5
The App works I guess, but PS4 has its own remote play play app now. Additionally this is a subscription or a year only....
Paid $12 for this app two days ago and used it once. Since then Sony has released a first party app that does the same thing for free. Save yourself some money and just get the first party app.
Connection problems 2/5
Please fix this I’ve been connecting to the ps4 with successful attempts but the big problem is the video quality when connected to the ps4. So please fix it now that would be great
So Glitchy 1/5
In the beginning it worked great but as I upgraded to the PS4 Pro this thing is so glitchy. Sometimes it works but most of the time it doesn’t. I would not recommend
Was great 1/5
New update made it choppy. I was streaming 720p easy away from home now i cant even stream well sitting in the same room as the ps4
I have a home WiFi upload of 5 mbps and when I’m away from home I can play flawlessly at 720P and 30fps without any glitches.
I use Steel Series Nimbus controller mapping out the L3 and R3 buttons was easy.
Worth it!!!🥳 5/5
By uh ihnin
I’ve only had the app two days but it is great no lag no freezing 🥶 no complaints. 😎
Worth it 5/5
By I finessed yo girl
If you reading the reviews to see if it’s worth it it is!
Read this 1/5
By this is pretty dumb
Why do u make me pay 12 dollars and a trial
Fix this 4/5
By Quincy boyz
It always lags plz fix this I want it to stop lagging so I could play in peace
Hope it can work around CG NAT like official Remote Play 4/5
By Dk Danes
The official PS4 remote play feature can work around Carrier Grade NATs as long as you can get your connectivity down to NAT Type 2. But R-Play requires more than that, ending up not working over the internet even when offical remote play does.
Way Better than the Vita 3/5
By Nagabeal Dechompa
The app is really good. The only thing that would be great is L3, R3 controller support like with the Rotor Riot Controller which is the first MFI controller that has those buttons available. The other thing is being able to use the touch pad to swipe left and right which would have been great for games like Let It Die. As for network functionality I am able to connect to my PS4 flawlessly from anywhere on my phones LTE connection and it runs great, this is still dependent based on your home network setup as well and internet speeds. Will definitely 5 star this if these are implemented in an update. Still worth it!
Worst app ever 1/5
I downloaded this app thinking it was going to be cool but the PlayStation had to be on so it’s practically like me playing on the PlayStation which just a waste of my money and I want my money back😡😡
I No Like 1/5
I can’t play on the go it only last 3 feet from my play station
Worth every penny! 5/5
The app works exactly as intended. I ran into some problems configuring my phone for internet play. After contacting the customer service/support team they responded quickly and resolved my issue with ease. Very happy with this app and company!
I would have gave it 5 star but 4/5
Internet play doesn’t work for me using AT&T
PSP remade! 5/5
I can play anything remotely, I super recommend a MiFi remote but it works awesomely. I play KH3, God of War, even COD and Spider-Man, just ensure PS4 is hooked directly to Router for best usage. Works away from home, play at work all the time!
Exceeded expectations 5/5
This app worked better than I thought. I’ve had a great experience so far and works even better than remote play on my Mac.
Lifesaver app! 5/5
NEGATIVES: minor lag can occur. I would not recommend for FPS, fighting, or other “quick-twitch” games. Doesn’t output 1080p...but in iPhone or iPad, it doesn’t really matter. MUST HAVE solid WiFi connection.
POSITIVES: IT WORKS! I owned a Vita and tried using Playstation's proprietary remote play on it...this is much better. Until solid cloud-based gaming becomes a reality, RPlay is the best remote play option for a console not named “Switch”.
Gameplay next level 5/5
Nice, Simple to play on iPad or iPhone XS plus
Waste of money 1/5
No matter how many times I tried ps4 never connected to the app
It is great 5/5
It works great I can stream and play on it.The app can help you play ps4 on whatever mobile platform.
Family Share 1/5
Family Share is not working even tho it claims to support family share in description. I will change review when I am notified this has been fixed. Until then it is a waste of money.
Great app 5/5
It is a great app. I like it because most of the time my daughter uses my tv and I could not play. now with this app I can be connected, I can also play while I am on my break from work away from my house. I would like the video quality to be 1080p and not 720p.
I love this app so much 5/5
I love this app so much
Works perfectly for my needs 5/5
Was looking for a remote play option for inside my home and this works great on my iPad Pro. As I’m close enough to the ps4, I’m even able to use the dual shock controller, which is hugely convenient (the instructions on setup were easy to follow and took about 5 minutes). Tried to AirPlay to another tv, but there was a bit of lag, but a usb-c to hdmi cable solved that. I can understand why this wouldn’t work for everyone, but it’s far better than the native ps4 app for the MacBook.
Developer please read 3/5
This is a amazing app but there’s one serious problem. There’s no L3/R3 button this makes it so I can’t sprint in most games. This is the only thing hold this app back from prefection. Please Add this button it could be through the force touch
Pricey but worth it. 5/5
The app runs flawlessly for me like I said it’s a little costly but if you like to game on your PS4 while you’re away and have WiFi access you can’t ask for more. It’s better if you have a controller to use so you can see the screen without having to use the touchscreen as a controller. If you love playing ps4 this app is a must have.
Basically a PS4 Screen mirror. 2/5
By A Kingdom Hearts Fan
I’d give this 2 1/2 stars if I could. Not quite what I was hoping for. Though it may be ideal for those who have the luxury of at home internet, and simply want to play their games when someone else wants to use the TV,
Unfortunately the down side is, you can’t play your game on R-Play if someone else is using the PS4, or if the console, or internet is offline.
Unusable on newest gen iPad 1/5
Specifically purchased this to use with my new iPad and it is beyond choppy.
iPhone works ok on the highest resolution but even dropped to 360 at 30fps it’s unusable on the iPad, will be getting a refund
A must app. Now I can actually catch up on my games. 5/5
This app is a game changer for me. I don’t have a lot of actual couch time at home to play my PS4 so my catalogue is getting backed up. At work though I have time but sometimes very little to do so this is perfect. The games work great over a decent WiFi or cell signal. Best for slower games like South Park but I have played Witcher 3 over WiFi miles away pretty decently. The tech support guys were very patient and helpful. For that alone they should get five stars.
Kicks the pants off Sony’s remote play Mac app 5/5
By Dion Hazelbaker
I bought this awhile back as an alternative to Sony’s own remote play software on my computer. This software is seriously a workhorse and performs so incredibly well. Occasionally I’ll test it out over LTE rather than our WiFi setup, and I have to say the performance is so good with just a couple signal bars that I often play over it instead. We’re talking Persona 5, Kingdom Hearts 3, God of War, you name it and it typically plays well on my iOS devices. Thank you to the developer for crafting an amazing piece of software that was totally worth the $10 or so I originally paid for it.
Poor customer service 1/5
Sometimes it’s quite tricky to connect the app to the PS4 and the customer service takes absolutely forever to respond to simple questions.
