Number not correct
I’ve been playing on PlayStation 4 for a long time now and I travel a lot so I like bringing it along with me, hotels however do not support consoles but can connect to my phone, I saw this app and wanted to try it out thinking I could have WiFi from my phone connect to the PlayStation. I’ve tried at least ten times to connect the ps but each time I type in THE CORRECT NUMBERS it says that the numbers were not correct. I don’t know if the PlayStation also needs WiFi to connect the phone but it still kind of aggravates me that it’s the “Incorrect number”. I think that it would be nice to actually connect my phone to my PlayStation.
It’s a separate app, not a separate paid app. They didn’t do this for money or any conspirical reason. They most likely did this to streamline the second screen feature into its own thing instead of having to open the “3 in 1” app. I, for one, would rather have this separate so I don’t have to wait for the main app to load. This goes for the Messages app as well: I hated having to wait to navigate the menu just to get to messages, messages should be its own thing. The bottom line is that this does what the main app used to, but without the menu navigation. If you don’t like it don’t download it, it’s not a big enough feature to care about this much.
Although the complaints about it being slow or not conmecting should be looked into. Since they have gone and made into its own thing it should be working perfectly or at the least as well as it would on the main app.
Works as Expected/Intended.
Reading through some of the reviews for this app, and you are quickly reminded just how stupid some people are…
This app does Exactly what it’s intended to be used for, with very little issues..
The app is not for streaming your consoles video output.. That’s what the “PS Remote Play” app is for!
Yes your console must be on the same local network for this app to connect to it. Bluetooth just is not going to cut it.
This app is intended to be a basic remote control, and to work as a companion for games that support the “Second Screen” feature: like displaying the in game map on your phone so you don’t have to keep opening it in game to see where you are. The game being played has to have this feature coded into it. This app can’t just magically make that happen.
Maybe folks should make sure they are using the app for what its intended for before they start running their mouth in a review because their mad that the dog won’t meow!
