Console HQ for PS3 Gamers (AKA PS3 Trophies) for iPhone is back!

As I said, a new version of the PS3 Trophies app for iPhone & iPod Touch was released to the App Store.

Don’t ask me about the new name “Console HQ for PS3 Gamers“, ask Apple who forced me to changed it under “content that could be misleading to users”

New version includes new features, improved refresh times. Complete game information and more. Is compatible with iOS 6 and new iPhone/iPod Touch screen sizes. It also can be used on iPad (but is not designed for such a big screen)

Now is easy to login into the application, as the new first screen just ask for it, with the option to clear the cache (in case you logout and want to login with a different user)

First thing you will notice is the change UI. There is a tab bar with the most common options available

Profile – Friends – Guides – Wall – Blog – Events

From Profile, you can see your use, avatar, level, progress and trophies earned with a list of all your played games, which you can sort and also filter by console (PS3 – PSVita). Tapping on any game will open options that includes:

Trophies. So you can see all your trophies earned and the one you are missing from that particular Game
Reviews. Read reviews written by other users (You will be able to add your own review in a later update)
Guides. Open a Google Search with the guides for that game, trying to match for ps3trophies.org guides
YouTube. Open a YouTube Search for videos related to that game
Others with this Game. Shows you other users (friends a favorites) with the same game (Favorites will be added on a later update)

Friends will show you all you PSN Friends Profiles, with their online status and the game playing or last time online. You can sort your friends by Status, Name, Level or Number of Trophies

Guides displays a list of all games available for PS3 and PSVita. You can search for specific games and also filter and sort the list. Tapping on any game will let you access:

Trophies. To see all available trophies fot that game (even the hidden ones!!)
Reviews. Guides, YouTube and Others with this Game (same functionality as stated before)

Going to the Wall screen lets you talk with other users using the app, no matter wich platform they are using (iOS, Android, WP7, Windows 8). You can sen private messages to other users using the app, see your sent messages and messages where you are mentioned by other users. You can block users from reading your messages (you also can’t read them) and unblock blocked users.

Blog. You can access the Official PSN Blog from USA, Europe, Brazil and Latin America. Read the latest news from the people at Sony and Game Developers!

In the Events section you will encounter events created by other user, asking for help trying to get hard trophies or just wanting to play multiplayer games with others. You can also register to one of these events. Creating events will be released in a later update

There is also another cool feature, you can see other users profiles, compare games and even trophies with them! Every time you can see a user in the application (Friends, Reviews, Others with this Game & Wall), you can tap it and access the user profile. When you are there, you can compare your games against that user tapping on the top right icon. Choosing any game in Compare Mode will compare trophies for that game only.

So, what are you waiting for, get this app from the app store now!!

  • See a list of all PS3 Games & Trophies with access to Guides & YouTube videos
  • Access the Official PSN Blog (EU & US)
  • See your Friend List, online status, game they are playing.
  • See your friend’s profile, games & trophies
  • Compare games & trophies against a friend
  • Create a Trophy Card based on several templates
  • Chat with other users using the Wall
  • Access Profile of other users from the Wall and compare against them (there is a bug in this version that will be fixed on next release)

Here are a couple of images from the app and the link to the App Store

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.
