The way the story reads, this app sounds like its ripping off the playstation app, when in truth the playstation app, and the Xbox on smartglass app, emulates the original smartglass app. In fact most of the features, such as second screen, web browsing, checking on and messaging friends, seeing achievements, and remote interface were part of the first smartglass app.
either way, great app, it even lets you pin items right now so they'll be waiting for you on launch day once you boot up.

In any sense; to all those that said "they copied such and such" Why would you not want them to copy? If there is no patent then go ahead and copy. Good features should be copied because they are GOOD features.
