Honestly, I know people are rightly a bit dubious, but the android version I linked is a reputable site and has been for years.

I tried this also, and won't allow me to log in to the Playstation network.

I'm in Canada.

Maybe Sony is enforcing logins only in the areas the app has gone live.

Staggered roll-out is my guess.

Ah, OK. Makes sense then. Why it lets me log in but not actually found in the Play Store is anyones guess.

well finally an app that isn't absolutely terrible it seems.
it's basically a copy of the Xbox App, which is a good thing.

No need to have it. The old app still had the old store, treasure it. This new one uses the new store. Rip usability

The update just appeared in the Google Play Store for me. Awesome update. I love the clean look of my game library.

Has the ability to pick up screen shots from activities gone? I found a reddit post but it had no answers. Have they actually removed the best feature?

Update: I had to reset my phone to get the update available on Google play store, anyone else have this problem?

That does not work for me.

And checking the store via my PC Browser or via the Store on my phone, it's still the older version.

I've repeatedly uninstalled the app, and re-installed, but it's still version 19.15.0, instead of the newer 20.9.3 version and my phone is Android 8.0 meeting the Android 6.0 and above requirement.

Also downloading the APK, and installing that, won't allow me to login into the Playstation network. Seems they are limiting logins by region also.

The app is much smaller than before, and so I think that this is probably a major rewrite, so it's a bit feature bare right now, as like the new Playstation store. Hopefully more features like a new wishlist is coming soon.

I quite like the app. All we need is a little improvement on store searching and sorting for it and desktop and we should be set.

Indeed. The new store is a piece of shit. A huge downgrade from the original. IDK what they're thinking. Hope they stay far alway from my PS4 store.

Can anyone rotate the pictures sent to them in messages on the Android phone? I can't zoom in or rotate within the app. Only download the photo.

No, opens in some weird embedded viewer then download only.

The new APP is a huge, huge upgrade. Much faster and fluid, makes everything easier and integrated in a single app, just like it should be from the very start.

Man, I wish this app would have the sharing features Xbox's app has. That's a game changer for me who shares a lot.

However, what we have is still pretty great. A much better overall feel and much faster and fluid than the original app. Good stuff.

Overall a huge improvement! I’m Not a fan of the back button and the lack of transitions when swiping between pages, but I don’t really have any other complaints. I think we’ll see features like the wish list return in time.
