Social Media is a big thing in today’s societies. Businesses. Companies. Friends and Family. Even Game Developers get in contact with everyone they wish to by means of Social Media. I don’t know how many times I’ve seen new Game Articles that are based off information that was conveyed to gamers from developers from sites like Facebook, Twitter, and more. It’s becoming a very crucial part of the gaming industry. As such, it makes sense that game systems have applications made for those services.
The PlayStation Vita is no exception to that. Within its own selection of apps, it can open and access the two biggest services, as far as social media is concerned. While it can open anything through its Web Browser, it has its very own apps for the services Facebook, which we previously reviewed. However, there is also an app that allows the Vita to access the Twitter service, which I see much more gaming news being conveyed on.
The PlayStation Vita’s version of Twitter is unique, though. Unless you read descriptions on the PlayStation Network, you just might miss it. While the Vita’s Facebook is just called “Facebook”, the Twitter app is not called “Twitter”. It is actually called “Livetweet”. Here is our official review of LiveTweet for the PlayStation Vita.
Ever since this writer was in high school, Social Media has been on the rise. Back then, it was Myspace. That soon evolved and everyone moved to Facebook, which was originally made for college students only. However, as it evolved, more and more people, young and old, began to take part in it. There have been countless social media web sites spawn since then, from Facebook to Twitter to Google Plus and others. Nearly everyone in today’s world takes part in social media, in some form.
Out of all of the different ways and sites for this, though, Facebook still reigns supreme as the social media platform with the most people, hits, and more. Facebook is something that everyone knows of, even if they don’t have an account there to be social or advertise their business. It is also one of few social media services that has its own app for the PlayStation Vita, along with Twitter and Sony’s own social service. After being around for so long, how does Facebook work on the PlayStation Vita? Is it user-friendly or hair-pulling? Here is our official review of the Facebook app for the PlayStation Vita.
If you’ve not noticed within the past week or so, our site has expanded! Not only are we providing in-depth reviews of games available on the PlayStation Vita, but we are now providing in-depth reviews for Apps available on the system as well. Taking a look at the top menu, you can see there is a new section called “App Reviews” and that section has two categories within it. There is a section of PlayStation Mobile apps as well as PlayStation Vita Apps. Last week, we gave you a review for a PlayStation Mobile app, and today we’re offering you a review of a PlayStation Vita app.
If you take a look around Mobile environments, there are a few apps that seem like they are essential for people to use. If I were to name some, I would probably mention apps like Facebook, Twitter, Photos, YouTube, and Amazon. These are not the only ones, though. One of the most crucial apps out there for a Mobile environment is something to check their email. Every Mobile system has a Mail app, and that includes the PlayStation Vita.
The PlayStation Vita did not originally have an app for email. For several months into its life cycle, it required the use of its Internet Browser for checking email. But, eventually, an update came and an app based around email finally came to the portable powerhouse. Since then, Email has been handled by the app that is simply called “Mail”. This is our official review of the Mail app for the PlayStation Vita.
