iPhone, iPod Touch, and Android soon to have a PlayStation app


The iPhone, iPod Touch and Android will soon have a PlayStation app.

Dubbed the Official PlayStation App, it will allow gamers to view their PlayStation Network trophies and keep up to date with friends' games and online status, according to PlayStation's European blog.

The app includes an option for users to share information on Facebook, Twitter or through e-mail.

No word on whether gamers can play their favorite games using the app or when it will be available. But the post said the first version will be available in the following countries: Britain, France, Germany, Spain, Italy and the Netherlands.

The best part? PlayStation said it'll be free.
