During its press conference at the 2013 Tokyo Game Show, Sony announced that it will be releasing its official PlayStation 4 app on the iPhone, iPad, and Android devices to launch alongside the release of its upcoming gaming console, reports Polygon. The app will include various features such as enabling the use of a mobile device as a designated game controller or second screen with compatible titles, as well as integration with Sony’s Playstation Network such as allowing users to see information about friends, as well as advanced sharing features:

Users will also be able to view and interact with PlayStation Network information through the What's New feature, such as seeing what friends are playing, and accept and send multiplayer invites. The app will also display PSN Trophy information, feature chat capabilities with friends and offer access to the PlayStation Store. It will also include Twitter and Facebook integration.
