Sort of works

the idea is great, connects easily to the playstation. however the connection is inconsistent and the display is inconsistent too. It works, but poorly. you have to continue to reconnect it, around every 5-10 mins, its not too much of a faff to do so but after a few times it can be irritating. When playing the display can be great but then it can be awful and cant make out what it says on the screen. it glitches and throws the game off, for example i can be watching a cut scene and i miss a line of what a character is saying, therefore ruins the experience of playing the game. the range it can take is decent, not bad, not great, its more expected, i didn't expect it to reach any further than it did. How easy it is to reconnect the iPad/phone back to the playstation does improve my opinion of the app, makes it easy to reconnect without having to run back and forth to my ps4. the idea is great, and i used it for a while, yes with interruptions but eventually i got used to it. I was able to play on my playstation away from my console and enjoy it to a degree. Great app, but doesn’t work so great. this app would do so much better if overall connection improved.

Great on PS5 no lag or problems running 720p resolution which was not the case with the PS4

I have a PS5 and it streams really well on a local connection at 720p and using my DualShock 4 on the app. Bluetooth is quick at sending buttons/input to the console locally. Sound steaming is top notch too. However on the PS5 you cannot see the bottom “nav” bar (with power options, switcher, etc.) when you press the PS button it is almost hidden by the apps GUI on screen. I tried turning off the overlays but it only hides the D-Pad and buttons. It should really turn off all GUI elements if you’ve specified this. It would also make it more immersive taking up all the space on the screen (I have a 12 Pro Max) rather than having a dark gradient at the bottom of the screen and some PS buttons/cog icon overlapping the on screen subtitles, gameplay and your own menu, etc. But other than that great job. I know this only works over “WiFi” (meaning 5G routers could be used) but if people have unlimited data plans surely this should be possible to use mobile data for on the go! e.g playing at a park or bench somewhere? I understand there could be NAT and other things at play here but should be doable and not limited to just Wifi. But thanks #Sony!

To be honest, i quite like the idea of having a remote play app for my Ps4 as i can just play from anywhere in the house close to my playstation on my phone. When you start the app, it says ‘This app can be used when far away from the playstation to play anywhere and anytime’ but i can only use the app at certain distances. I really think you should improve this, so that you can play with the controller on your phone. For this to work, i have an algorithm which could work; 1. Playstation can stay off
2. Have the app downloaded and sign into your PSN account
3. Put the controller into bluetooth connect mode(Playstation and share button at the same time(hold) and wait till flashing blue), then DS4 appears on screen and you tap it.
4. Choose your game to play, (use data for games that require WiFi if not connected to any) and play.
