The PlayStation Official App for the iPhone, iPod touch and iPad has launched.

Now available for free in the iTunes App Store, the app is described as a "one-stop source to keep you ahead of the game, no matter where you are".

It offers you access to the PlayStation blog, updates on the latest games, news and hardware and provides you with a way of keeping track of your trophies, as well as your friends on the PlayStation Network.

Initially it is available for players in the UK, Germany, Italy, Spain, France and the Netherlands, but you'll need to be 17 or older to download the app.

You'll need to be running iOS4.0 or later. MCVUK reports that an Android version of the app will launch soon as well.
