Doesn’t show on the App Store for me. I’d only try it once and delete it anyway.

I don't think that's what's going on, for two reasons.
I looked around in the options menu, and I don't see anything there to let you use any controller.
And the way this seems to work is that the app itself acts as a Dualshock by logging into your profile. That's why when you try to log into it again using the Dualshock, the app disconnects from the PS4 the same way a Dualshock would if another logs into the same profile.

I'm not an engineer on their development team, but I'm pretty sure it doesn't have to work this way (that the app emulates a Dualshock) in order for the content of your game to be streamed to the app.
So perhaps they'll add that option if people request it.

Oh dear God, I wouldn't be able to enjoy a game with all those buttons covering and obscuring the screen especially with a small phone screen as it is.  I say this as someone who has little interest in mobile (phone) gaming regardless of platform holder/developer.  It's just not for me.

It is accessible for every Xperia Z and XZ smartphones and tablets for years

Ya but there is a big difference between being on Xperia vs being on iPhone/iPad.



When the herd loses its way, the shepard must kill the bull that leads them astray.

Spectacular work.



My Total Sales prediction for PS4 by the end of 2021: 110m+

When PS4 will hit 100m consoles sold: Before Christmas 2019

Awesome feature, cant wait til it comes to Android

Soft buttons suck. Hard buttons all the way.



Android or GTFO.

No one owns an Xperia



Pocky Lover Boy! 

Another iOS prop up....

When will it end?

This is by far the worst trend in videogame history. It baffles me that this trash is still so powerful after more than ten years.

Wait, we're able to do this the whole time? What was the point in mentioning it in the update?

From the looks of it, the new feature only applies to commands while browsing the PS4 menus.
The old one would swap all actions performed with one button to another, including inside games.

Can you connect anything to an iPhone? Afaik there is no usb in apple products... micro usb to lightning cable would be needed.

On windows you simply plug the ds4 into your laptop / pc with the charge cable. You can even play multiplayer split screen although the second controller connects directly to the ps4, can't have 2 connected to windows afaik. So yes, the app logs into your ps4 and you can't log another ds4 into the same profile. You can log the ds4 into a different profile and play as player 2 ...

There's only a lightning cable port, so yeah I can't connect it directly.
Though I seem to recall you could connect a PS4 controller to an iPhone through bluetooth, so maybe that'll work.

Well just like in 2014, most people don't have an Xperia.

@LudicrousSpeed
It didn't show up right away for me either. Instead I fond "PS4 Second Screen".
Click on the developer's name and you should see it there.
