Sony has announced that the official Android app for its PlayStation network is now available. The official blog has confirmed that gamers can now scratch their gaming addiction through a companion tool available for users in France, Germany, Italy, Netherlands, Spain, and the United Kingdom.

As previously reported, The Official PlayStation App for the Android is a tracking tool for the PS3. It enables users to view their trophies from the PlayStation Network, as well as monitor if a friend is logged-on playing a particular game.

TOPAFTA also serves as a news application by showcasing games and reviews for PS2, PS3, and PSP titles. It also has announcements from the official European PlayStation blog and links to send game information to friends through Facebook, Twitter, or email.

The app is available for download in the Android Market, but only in select countries. More European nations and languages will soon be supported, but there’s no timeline for when that will happen. Also worth noting is that certain phones are not supported based on comments from readers of the EU Playstation Blog. Here’s a QR code to see if you’re able to access the app.
