Take the awesome power of your Sony PlayStation 4 console, and give it the portability and convenience of the Nintendo Switch. Stream your PlayStation 4 games to your iPhone, iPad or iPod touch and play from anywhere. Never again will your gaming be interrupted when someone else needs to use the TV! R-Play features: • Play your PlayStation 4 games while away from home by streaming over the internet¹ • Supports HD 720p video (1080p for PS4 Pro) at 60 frames per second for crisp, smooth gameplay • Control games with any MFi game controller, or the built in virtual on-screen controller • Highly tuned performance with extremely low lag • Multiple profile support so you can use any number of different PlayStation 4 consoles or PSN accounts • Customise the virtual on-screen controller to your liking • Quick and easy one-time setup, start playing within seconds To use R-Play, your PS4 must be connected to your home network via LAN cable. For the best streaming experience, having your iPhone, iPad or iPod touch connected to a 5GHz WiFi network is highly recommended. Your PS4 must be linked to a PSN account (however, R-Play does NOT require your PSN password). The current version of R-Play requires that your PlayStation 4 is running system software 4.73; other versions are not supported. Note 1: Playing over the internet requires your home network to be set up correctly. In most cases R-Play does this for you automatically. Some users may need to perform this set up manually, according to the instructions found in the included in help guide.

    Good concept but it’s still choppy you have play with frame rate and resolution in order to get an okay video but after a while that goes bad does not hold a connection to Wi-Fi very well
  • Can’t configure for internet play

    By XICOR45604
    The app is great I can play when I’m connected while someone else is using the tv! My problem is that I can’t configure for internet play. This error labeled “20012” keeps popping up and I can’t find why I can’t connect or what the error is. Please help!
  • App disconnects a lot

  • Don’t waste your money

    This app is unusable, it Freezes and very slow
  • Fun but doesn’t work well

    By Jcohen106
    It works good for me, but online at my home. Att routers don’t have a upnp so I can’t play it anywhere else
  • Temper your expectations, but I’m impressed

    By Theremin Coldflanks
    I’m shocked I’m saying this, but this app is actually kind of amazing—as long as you keep your expectations in check. I’ve been playing Persona 5 remotely with it (over the internet, not LAN), and it’s been working really well. Now, there are occasional frame rate hiccups and latency issues, and the onscreen controls are only serviceable at best, but that’s totally fine for a slower paced game like Persona. If you expect to play fast paced games remotely where tight controls and fast reaction times are important, you’re going to have a bad time. It might work OK over LAN, but it’s still not going to be great. But for certain slower games, it works nearly perfectly. A few details about my setup: I was not able to get the automatic remote setup working with my router configuration. I had to look at R-Play’s help docs for opening the right router ports to get everything working, but if you’re reasonably capable at futzing with router settings, you shouldn’t have any issues. My PS4 is connected to my router with an ethernet cable, and my home internet speeds are 60Mbps down and 6Mbps up.
  • Please add turbo function

    By IceColdTee
    Please please add turbo function. I will give five stars
  • Horrible

    By P3p$!
    App would not connect no matter what I tried even hooking it straight to Ethernet waste of 12 dollars. I was hoping this would work but no guess not.
  • Can’t Find Analog Stick

    By G4M35
    Great app! Works amazing but I’d like to be able to play rocket league :(
  • Functionality

    By HipHopGodd
    Can't play via internet unless your console is connected to you're router. How very counterintuitive. Defeats the purpose all together.
