You can now control your PS4 with an iOS device

Grab the app

If you boot up your PS4 you'll be staring at an "update now" message and might be wondering what it entails: well, it's mostly about iOS remote play this week. As part of update 6.50 you'll be able to control your PS4 with an iOS device. The app sports an on-screen controller layout as well as a keyboard for messaging and even voice chat support. While a lot of people are probably going "no one asked for this," well, it's actually a nice surprise.

Anyone who regularly games socially will probably love the idea of an all-inclusive app that allows them to message people, voice chat and operate their PS4 in one go. It's a stark upgrade from the standalone messaging app that only does one thing. Now I can redeem a code, talk to someone, browse my games, clear space and download something to play later on the go. An official free app also beats out the premium jailbreak-required offerings in the past.

Based on my tests it's extremely responsive and the portrait mode has a cool little Game Boy UI where the screen is at the top! Landscape looks like the image above.
