Sony API shutdown

On 2021/02/18, Posted by , In News, By ,,, , With 37 Comments

Sony has now shutted down its API (the one used by the previous version of its official application and still used by the current version of YaPSNapp).

We are still implementing the new API, so the app no ​​longer works. As specified in our previous post on the roadmap, we will not be able to deliver this new version before the end of the month.

We’re really sorry for this situation, we knew Sony was going to end their API, as their current app no ​​longer uses it, we were just hoping it would be done after we had time to adapt, it was  unfortunately not the case.
(The app has been removed from the stores to avoid downloads that would only lead to disappointment)

We will keep you informed when the new version is deployed.

    So are you gonna make an entirely brand new app or just update this one? Cause I’ve only just recently started using this one and I’m loving it, even when I’m not playing any games I check it, so it’s sad to see that it’s not working at this moment, hopefully you can get it up running soon. Good job tho.

    • Jeff says:

      We will update the existing app to be compatible with new API (Cf the previous blog ticket on roadmap to read what will be the impacts on existing app). Then, a new major version will be released with new features and new design.

        I thought you deleted the app and the thing is done. I was shocked
        So glad to hear that you are doing good work to drop an update soon
        Can’t wait to see the update

      It happened same to me, maybe few weeks of paid usage only but I can handle waiting, if my contribution will help to bring the app back, I will be happy with it.

  4. Brillica says:

    Will wait patiently, such a good app is worth waiting for. Thanks for your hard work fixing it.

    Looking forward to the update, the official is a lot better then before, but yours is still my go to. Good luck, don’t stress.

  8. Gruff says:

    Thanks for the communication Jeff!

    I still constantly load up the app a dozen times a day by habit. One of these days I will be pleasantly surprised to see it updating again. Also looking forward to the new and improved version when it’s ready.

    Keep up the good work!

  9. Rhys says:

    Cheers for info, thanks for APP. Shame people can’t read posts and others expect thing done before they can be.


  10. Blaisse says:

    Keep up the good work guys,

    You’ve done a better job than Sony did, can’t wait till you fixed it, look forward to the updated version, good luck and thnx for your Awesome App

    Hey YaPSNapp team,

    I just wanted to say thank you for a great app! This is my favorite trophy hunting app by far. It is understandable that there will need to be changes to the existing app. When you go to launch it ever think about changing the logo of the app. Perhaps a trophy or Platinum trophy look a like? Looking forward to the new and improved version!

  12. Prince says:

    Currently using PlayStation app which sucks btw .. waiting for you guys to get this running again take your time I will wait .. and the new features for the new version looks promising but I’m afraid it will make the app slow and laggy.. cheers

  13. Billy says:

    Looking forward to using the app again. Thank you for all your hard work!

  14. Karl McKenna says:

    Thanks for the update guys I’ll be patiently waiting on this great app to be restored

  15. Chinmay says:

    Do you have a new estimate as to when the app will be up now that we are closer to the end of the month?
    Please update us! We are grateful for the work you are putting in


  16. João Sousa says:

    Is there any update on when the app’s functions will be restored?

  17. Enrico says:

    when will there be an update to be able to use the application again?

  18. ByCaliche says:

    It’s any updates on the return of the app ?

    We all know the hard work, keep it up we hope a soon return.

  19. chaser says:

    Maybe someone will drop a few words about ongoing situation?
    Would love to hear some news

    • Ms says:

      I spent several hours working on the German language support for the developers and they made it to ignore me for almost 4 months now. I never received a Thanks nor any reaction. I did it for free and they knew I was going to do it.

      I’m a premium user and the app is not working, which obviously is Sony’s fault, but I think the developers of YaPSNapp shouldn’t go radio silence to their customers like that. By now I think they are unreliable and sloppy.

      • Jeff says:

        Hi, The app is already available in German language for iOS. Do you mean that translation is not correct ?
        Or if this is for Android, when did you dropped an email to yapsnapp@drakly[dot]com ? I have no email history on this. Several guys had already asked the “strings.xml” source file, but we never got any response.

  20. Daniel says:

    Hello? Anybody alive?

  21. chaser says:

    It’s never come back isn’t it?

  22. Daniel says:

    Hey. You guys still alive?

  23. ByCaliche says:

    Any updates?

    We deserve some words

  24. Prince says:

    There is a new update guys !!

    Go check it out

  25. Prince says:

    The app is back up again ! What a good surprise to start the day with

  26. thistleboy says:

    Three months since this post and the app still doesn’t work. Clear data, link account, sync times out, can’t parse friends list, Java errors, loss of auth token, then we’re told the fix is to clear app data and do it again in an endless loop with the same result. Pocketed a ton of cash in the meantime. Nice grift, bro.

  27. Scott says:

    Hi there,

    Huge fan of the app, been using for a few years now.

    Are there any planned new features?

    It’s been a while since your last blog post so just curious.

    Thanks again,
