Some Great Apps That Integrate Your iPhone with Your Gaming Consoles

Last week we spotted an iPhone App that integrates your iDevice with your Wii over wifi. It looks pretty cool, so iSmashPhone thought it would be fun to look around for similar Apps for all systems. The Apps aren't essential, but they are neat and can be useful.

PSN Go

PSN Go is the App that lets users track their PlayStation Network friends, view their trophies and see what they are currently playing.

Users can also check out profiles and view the Games Catalog, which lists games' details and screenshots.

Meanwhile, Trophy fans can view video guides. These open through the YouTube player, and show you how to earn some of those harder-to-find Trophies. It costs $1.99, so it won't break the bank. Oh yeah, it also supports the iPhone 4's sharper resolution. Check it out here: PSN Go

We found this one earlier this week and thought it was kind of cool. Because the Wii's online social network isn't nearly as expansive as those on the 360 and the PS3, there isn't as much to do as far as adding friends and checking their status. This App connects your devices for something else entirely. It adds some fun functionality. With it, you can share iPhone, Flickr, Facebook and other networking photos  as well as those on your Mac with your television screen via your Wii all over wifi. Check out the video.

It's the priciest of the Apps at $2.99, but it's fun for entertaining family. Read more here: WiiPhoto


Add Xbox LIVE Friend

This is one of the Apps we found developed by the users over at 1337pwn.com. All of their Apps were free, but this one was the most useful. It's a quick way to add friends on Xbox LIVE. It's great for adding people quickly when away from a computer or console.

You simply launch the App and enter their Gamertag. The App is nothing fancy; entering a name simply launches Mobile Safari and sends a friend request via Xbox.com. Keep in mind that you will need to have logged onto your Xbox.com profile at least once before on Mobile Safari in order to make the shortcut take you directly to your page. 

If anything, their App is worth checking out. It's free, here: Add Xbox LIVE Friend.

Let us know some of your favorite Apps for integrating your  iDevice with your console experience. Maybe we missed one that is worth looking at.
