    Playstation app useless?

    Is the android app good for anything? I remember watching an advertisement showing me I could purchase stuff and download it straight to my PS4 so that it might be ready as soon as I'm there. I gave it a try today and left my PS4 in standby mode so that it would allow internet access and downloading. I got Second Assault, choose the Download to your PS4 option, then I had a waiting message which showed me a small loading icon, after like a minute I get a 'playable' message instead so I figured it meant it was now downloading. To my surprise I come home to find myself stuck waiting to download 4.8gb, and the worst is that I had to re-do everything because nothing happened at all, it didn't even queue it. Could you please correct me if this a feature that wasn't advertised?

    No issues here either, did you connect them at home first before you tried this?

    Yes I had already synced my phone to my PS4, have you guys done this before putting something to download on your app and find it downloaded and installed on your ps4?

    Yea, think I had last done it when Don't Starve came out.
    Had it download while I was at work.
    Maybe you just need to reconnect your phone again?
    Could even try a download a game from your phone while you are at home then it should definitely work from anywhere.

    I have the iPhone app and it works perfectly for me when I need it. I do see myself using it in the future when more games are available but right now I like to use it for typing, adding friends on the go and looking at the activity from time to time.

    Does the ps4 boot up to your primary account or does it boot up to where you have to select a user?

    I have it on iOS and I can't even log in. It logged me out once and I haven't been able to log back in at all. I could never buy anything off the store either. Not sure what to do.

    PCs are very much like Air Conditioners.
    They both become utterly useless once you start to open up Windows....

    I've played around with it. Mainly use it to check and see if my multiplayer buddies are online yet or to check the 'Whats new' section. I tested out using it as a keyboard for chat entry on ps4...works great.

    Come find me on Twitch.tv!

    Boots up to my primary account, I guess I'll re-sync and try again.
