PS3 Argentina

PS3 Trophies, Friends, apps for Android

FAQ

Q: What is PS3 Trophies?
A: Ps3 Trophies is an Android app that shows your PSN Profile, Games, Trophies and Friends data and statistics and will allow you to make compare yours with theirs.
 
Q: Do I have to login to use this application?
A: No. You can use PS3 Trophies without logging in with your PSN Account. You only need your username. Without logging in, though, you won’t be able to see your Friend List and use the compare statistics feature,
 
Q: If I choose to log in, how secure is my login information?
A: Your email and password are sent to Sony’s Site using HTTPS (secure), which, returns a ID-like number that I use instead of your log in information to get your Friend List and other information that requires you to be logged in to be retrieved.
The email and password are only stored on the phone in a secure form, and is only used as explained above.
 
Q: How does PS3 Trophies work?
A: This app consumes some services at www.ps3argentina.com.ar that get the relevant data from Sony’s site. Some of this information is cached for performance.
The Friend List is regenerated from Sony’s site every 5 minutes so we can keep it updated. Games and Trophies are regenerated every 1 hour.
 
Q: Why are some games/trophies missing from my list?
A: If you choose not to use PSN Login, some games will not appear in your list, the same happens with your trophies.
If you choose to login, some trophies will not show because they might be Hidden Trophies (will only show if you unlock them).
If you see some missing games/trophies that should appear in your list, please provide feedback at  benexusg at gmail dot com 

Q: Why is this app free?
A: I live in Argentina and the Android Market only allows free applications to be submitted, but you can donate if you like my work. That will help me to pay for the hosting and to develop more functionality for this app (and maybe other apps)
 
Q: I want/need some new functionality, what should I do to get it?
A: Write your comments in this page, I will add those that may improve the application.
 
Q: Who are you?
A: BeNeXuS
 
Q: Any other information I should be aware of?
A: Please be sure to login at http://eu.playstation.com at least once. If you find any error/bug please write comments in this page. And please, if you like the app, feel free to donate. Thank you for your time and for downloading the app, I hope you like it!

    • Hi, thanks!!! 😀
      I don’t know what you mean.
      Are you talking about PS3 Widget or PS3 Trophies.
      Both programs works with any account.
      If you have any problem, please, email me.

  2. So I downloaded ps3 trophies, abd when I do it tells me that I can’t properly sign in and can’t access my friends. I am doing a psn login, and live in the usa. What’s going on?

    Comment by karl | 23/02/2010 | Reply

    • Hi karl, for US users, you have to login at http://eu.playstation.com with your existing US account and make sure youo can see your friends there.
      That will do for PS3 Trophies.

  5. It seems that it takes a few days for the trophies from my ps3 to sync to the app. Is there a way to speed this process up?

    • Information is being read from Sony’s site every 12 hours. So, if there is a delay, check first on sony’s site.

    • Hi1, login takes place on Sony EU servers. Sometimes this servers are under maintenance.
      You can go to
      http://eu.playstation.com to check PSN availability

  9. I like the idea of both apps, however, neither seem to work for me. PS3Trophies always tells me “Cant get Profile Information or User doesnt Exist”, even though i’m synced up at eu.playstation.com, and can see my friends list there. PS3Widget always says “There was a Server Error. Please try again later” How do I fix either/ both problems?

    • it’s been 4 days with still no help…have these apps been abandoned?

      Comment by shawn | 18/03/2010 | Reply

      • Hi, Sorry the delay, I was busy with work and fixing the app.
        Las version on market should work.
        I will publish a new version tomorrow that sends me some log information when app Force Close.

        Widget is more tricky, but I definitly will fix it.

  18. .Hey can you add on the widget custome update times 15 min just isn’t enough and I don’t know if its because of psn but it doesn’t update unless I go into the app to do it and then go back and hit refresh. Also notifications do not work very well it has only done it once and he was on all day. Also my trophies are not updating every elses are yet mine remain the same even though the website says they are not, maybe this is again due to psn . And on a side note can you add some psn features if any come out that can be done through the website, and they have an app like this now on facebook check it out it might be helpful

      • The ones below are me but when I said psn I truly said psn plus but it didn’t like my plus signs I guess

        Comment by tj | 29/06/2010

  19. I isolated the issue with updating the widget requires the app to be updated yet the app must be done manually so an option for auto there might help or syncing the to to work as one having them seperate is not helpful for it. But could you make notifications appear in the bar not just the light and have a list of who is currently on on the notification list. Other than that this is a great app I’m glad I updated. Oh and when I was pushing your app to its limits it doesn’t like multitouch when sideways on the friends screen on an android always causes crash of program.

    Comment by tj | 29/06/2010 | Reply

    • Notifications should appear on the notificacion bar!!!
      all the friends that are online (that were offline) should appear in the bar!!, then the sound and the light!!
      I do not know if we are talking about the same thing

      Are you referring to de psn friends widget? or the ps3 trophies pro (that includes the widget) or the free version ?

      Comment by benexus | 29/06/2010 | Reply

      • I’m on pro when a friend goes on on my notification list the light goes on and until I click on the widget when the screen goes off blinks yet no notification in the bar. But I have only had that happen once the other time it was there. This was on the motorola droid. Also I would take a look at the notification it doesn’t work unless the main app is updated by hand then when the widget auto updates the notification light pops up this should not work like this but more independently or a better connection between the two so that they are one (its clear they are not right now)

        Comment by tj | 29/06/2010

  20. oh yeah and if you ever need a tester ill help I do a lot of betas

    Comment by tj | 29/06/2010 | Reply

  21. I isolated my issue with my friends not updating on the widget it appers when the command is given for the app to update it fails and it gives me when viewing just a vanilla “unable to update” error so it shouldn’t be too hard to fix maybe its just me but everything else works fine now except it identifying which friends are on. It takes forever and it will only give one of them to get it to give me another the phone must be reset.

    Comment by tj | 29/06/2010 | Reply

  22. Just updated to pro, love the app. What are ur plans for future updates? Maybe some psn plus identifies? Also I know people bugging you about messaging but if sony does allow it in the future will u eventually support it? Once again love ur app. Great job

      I’m waiting to sony to add PSN+ sign on their page, so i can add it to the app.
      Also, I want to add messages and friend request, but there is no way now to do that.

      I have to redo some templates in HighRes and create some new, but I’m having hard weeks at work

      Make sure you sync trophies on your PS3.

  27. Hi Nicolas! Great app, I love it. Got 2 questions:
    a) when I’m logged in with the trophies app, do I appear online to my friends?
    b) sending/receiving messages would be the cherry on top of this cake. Does PSN support this (API?) and you need only some help with it?

    thanks, Ani

    • I dont think so.
      email & password are stored on the phone and are only send to SONY using HTTPS (secure) to log in the user. All other comunications are using a sessionId provided by SONY and this value is only valid for a period of time..

      There is no way that using this app someone could access email or password.

      The compare feature will be back in the next release.
      I release FREE PSN Codes sometimes in the afteroon any other day.

      • I am using both the trophies and the friends widget. I just tried again and the large friends widget works fine now, so it was probably mine phone. That’s awesome news about the compare feature. If I could give a suggestion for a future release. It would be awesome to see trophy guides asociated with games. I really like http://www.ps3trophies.com for guides, they are user created on forums and very useful for trophy whoring.

        Comment by ogoditsnick | 01/09/2010

      • If you go to Trophies List on PS3 Trophies PRO, you can see that 3 games have the GUIDE button. I will add buttons to most games.
        PS3Trophies.com doesn’t want me to point my app to his guides :(.
        So I probably use PS3Trophies.org

  35. Is there a reason that when I go to friends that it doesnt show all of my friends? It will only show like 12 out my 90 friends. I just purchase the app so does that have anything to do with it? did input my log in info.

      Thanks for your support.
      The problem has to do with SONY EU site that is freaking slow these days.

  43. Hey there! Congratulations, the app is great! But, as I’m a relatively new PS3 player, I didn’t get a thing on the top of the screen, right below the avatar: what’s that percentage about? For example, mine is 9.5%, a friend has 0%, another one has about 60%…

    Sorry if it’s a dumb question.
