PS3 Trophies for Android UPDATE to 4.0

PS3 Trophies had a revamped update this week.

All features of the app are easily accessible from the main screen.

Transitions are smooth and graphics looks sharper and brilliant.

Also this version includes support (in development) for vita games
Main Screen shows your  profile and access to most common features
(friends, games, guides, chat, blog, events, profile, ranking and favorites)

To the left of the main screen you can find
Friends, Favorites, Ranking, Search and finally Help/News
To the right of the main screen you can find
Games, Guides, Profile, Events and finally Blogs

Every Icon on the upper left of the screen will display a menu, and some will react to long taps

When looking at games the upper right icon has two functions, tapping will open the sort filter, and long tapping will open the game type filter (Vita / PS3)
If you tap on a game you will get a new screen with all trophies earned
To the left you can see others users with the same game, and to the right you can see users reviews, then guides, then YouTube videos

When looking at friends, tapping a friend will open a new screen with the user profile and all the games he has
To the left there is the App Profile of that user, and to the right you can compare games between the users

Blogs now include Official US Playstation Blog, Official EU Playstation Blog, Official BR Playstation Blog and Official LATAM Playstation Blog.

There is a new Lock Screen option to have your profile and friends online on your phone screen even when the phone is locked.

PS3 Trophies PRO for Android v3.0 coming soon

Version 3.0 of the BEST PS3 app for Android is coming soon.
Here are some screens

03/01/2011 Posted by | Android, PS3, PSN, Widget | 3 Comments

Back Online

PS3 Trophies & PSN Friends is back online
v1.6.0

I had hosting problems all week, so I tooked PS3 Offline.

I spent all my free time trying so solve this issue. So I migrated practically all server code (C#) to the phone (JAVA), so the app does not depend on the server to work properlly.

Now it connects directly to Sony’s Servers (EU site). US users CAN use this app with their accounts. It’s not mandatory to login on EU site for this app to work (If you still have problems, please report it here).

Sometimes EU site is under maintenaince (more than US site), so, if you got error like “Can´t connect”, or “Can´t get games/friends”, please be sure to check http://eu.playstation.com before posting.

It was hard for me to read all the bad comments on the android market. Please people, I don’t have all the time I want to develop for android, and I’m not making any money (I’m loosing money because the hosting service)

I want to thanks to all the people that sent me email asking to beta test, and helping me back this app online.

So, from now on, please post here if you have any problem. Don’t fill the market with bad ratings.

Downtime & Trophies

Hi!, this morning PS3 Trophies, PS3 Widget and www.ps3argentina.com.ar  where having problems showing information.

This was beacuse Sony did a maintenance to his site, changing the way that information is shown.

Right now, both app and the site are working fine, but there is one problem.

Sony is not showing anymore the trophies earned in the public profile (you can checkit here
http://profiles.us.playstation.com/playstation/psn/profiles/benexus , change ‘benexus’ with your user name)
If you click on any game you can’t see the trophies. You have to be logged in to see your trophies.

What this mean?

PS3 Widget: Can no longer updates trophies (description)  earned,  just profile, trophies count and games.
PS3 Trophies: If you don’t use the “login in PSN” functionallity, you have the same problem that PS3 Widget. I recommend you that you use this settings to enjoy the all APP
PS3 Argentina Site: same as PS3 Trophies.

I’m doing my best to find a way to get the description of trophies again.

I’m back. Announcing PS3 Widget

Well, tough week

I started to develop a widget for Android that show profile information, games and trophies. This widget will launch ps3trophies from within and like that app, is free too.

I will be launching a PS3 Widget Pro version ($ 0.99) where you’ll have the posibility of upload a XML file defining you own template, and you’ll be allowed to use your custom backgrounds.  This version will launch PS3 Trophies too.

Right now all the information is pulled from EU site. I’m trying to find a way to get this info from US site.  I still find the EU site more complete (like I said before, games like GOW, RB Beatles, some trophies, etc)

Please, feel free to post if you have any advice, issue, or comment about this applications.
