We wanted to highlight a pretty cool that was brought to our attention that you can find in the Apple App Store. We are talking about iTrophies for your iPhone or iPod touch and as of today, it was just upgraded to ver 2.0 with added several new features that I will get into in just a little bit.
iTrophies is a handy app that syncs your own PlayStation Trophy data to your iPhone and not only allows you to see which trophies you have earned but which ones you still have to get. One thing pretty unique with iTrophies that seems to set it apart from the crowd is that fact that is actually supports live syncing, so no longer will you have to manually select each trophy that you have earned. With the help of a set by set guide which is found over on their website itrophies.wordpress.com they will help you do the hard part in a matter of minutes.
Another thing that PS3 iTrophies allows is the ability to look at the live status of everyone on your friends list, yo uwill be able to see if they are online or not, their comments, what they are playing, and even compare overall trophy stats with them.
PS3 iTrophies also contains a break down off all your games, showing you which trophies you have earned and which you still have to get, along with info about how to get them. And what info does it give you? Well, not only does it give you a brief description of the trophy, but it also searches YouTube for videos guides on how to achieve them. As you can see in the picture below, several video guides were found to help figure out how to get the “Repair your car” trophy in Burnout Paradise.
Now PS3 iTrophies has many things going for it, but that doesn’t mean that it is perfect. Having to manually put your PSN ID login into it every time does get annoying, as does the fact that even though you can compare overall trophies against your friends, PS3 iTrophies lack’s the ability to compare with each individual title, thus you don’t get the whole picture while comparing against your friends.
Steve’s final say: If you are a trophy junkie and have an iPhone, there is no question, this is a must have app, you will not be disappointed.
UPDATE: Under the settings menu you have the ability of not only saving your login information, but also enabling auto-login. Also, please remember that you are entering your PSN account info in a non Sony app, if you have your credit card info on your account you might want to think twice. I don’t have any of my credit card info on my account so to me I’m not to worried about it, plus I rather just use PSN Cards as it is much harder to make those regrettable purchases.
