Cool. But I wish there was a keyboard and more functions for the PS3 as well. Full remote control would be nice. :-)

The app it awesome. I use it all the time. Can't wait to use this new feature. I didn't think it would be so good. They cover every aspect of what the app should have. Ton of functionality. Love sending pics from my phone to PSN friends the most. Thanks for the update notice, I have my store notifications turned off ^_^

This app is phenomenal. I use it as a side-by-side every time I game on my PS4. Helps make responding to those angry messages from sore losers a lot easier :-p
