Sony announced their intention to release an official PlayStation app for the back in the middle of December last year, and as of yesterday it was live inside the App Store. The free application allows PlayStation owners to view their trophies, see what their friends are playing and whether they’re online or not.
Additionally, the app provides access to the PlayStation Blog and will bring news on upcoming games and hardware. All you’ll need is your PlayStation Network ID to sign-in.
As was made clear when it was announced, this is an SCEE application and is therefore only available in certain countries, those being the UK, Germany, Spain, France, Italy and the Netherlands. Whether any other Sony divisions release their own app remains to be seen, but Sony Europe has said they will be adding other European countries to this particular app in the future.
