Stay on top of PSN status with this new iPhone app.

How many gamers learned of the Great PSN Crisis of 2011 when they vainly tried signing into their PSN accounts? Now that can all be avoided, because the PSN Status app has made it to the App Store: 

If you are amongst the millions of iPhone owners who also happen to have PS3’s, I’ve got the perfect app for you. Behold, PSN Status [Free]. This free app will tell you both quickly and easily whether or not PSN is up. Sure, it would have been much more useful last month, but it will be handy to keep around if/when PSN goes down again.
