Over in Europe, PlayStation fans are getting a treat in the form of mobile apps for iPhone and Android
. No, the app won't turn your phone into a PSP, but it does sync up with your PlayStation Network account, which allows you to check trophies and see which of your friends are online. It also loads up announcements about new PlayStation titles. Predictably, there's also social networking, so you can do some volunteer Facebook and Twitter advertising for games you like.
The catch: this app doesn't have a US release date yet. In fact, only the UK, France, Germany, Spain, Italy and the Netherlands will get it at launch. On the plus side, the app is free, and an upcoming version will let you comment on the PlayStation blog.
