And another app for the Vita is losing support and going away. Sony announced today that all support for the Facebook app on the PS Vita, PS TV and the PS3 is ending in January 2016.
The Facebook app now joins YouTube and Maps as applications that have had their support dropped. Of course both Facebook and YouTube can still be accessed through the Vita via the built in browser even if the user experience isn’t as smooth. It’s also worth noting that the Facebook app was one of the few that made the transition over to the PlayStation TV, but unfortunately it’s tenure proved to not be that long.
To facilitate in the shutting down of the app, PlayStation will be removing the app from the PSN Store, and it will no longer be available to download effective today, September 15. It is still available through the Vita, so if your desperate to try it out, download it now before it’s too late.
