Mere days away from the launch of the PS4, Sony has updated their PlayStation App [Free] to start completing the massive puzzle of mobile and console interconnectivity. It seems like the killer feature of this is the ability to buy games on the PlayStation Store on to go which triggers them downloading and installing back on your PS4 back home. That seems pretty handy.
Additionally, it has other links to PSN alloying you to view friend activity, chat with friends, get all sorts of alerts, and even use your device as a keyboard for your PS4. The PlayStation App is also going to serve as the hub for their "second screen" functionality, blasting out relevant stuff to your iPhone or iPad along with whatever game you're playing on your TV.
I'm excited to see how second screen content is handled in the new generation of consoles. I was a bit underwhemled with Microsoft's Smart Glass functionality, but that was such an afterthought. The PS4 is launching with second screen functionality in mind, so maybe it'll be a bit more exciting? Either way, if you're getting a PS4 this week and have an iOS device it makes sense to grab this and be ready.
