PS Vita Firmware Update 3.10 Allows You to See More Than 100 Apps

Posted by Sammy Barker

At long last

Sony must have caught wind that this editor was about to write an angry article about the PlayStation Vita’s bizarre application limit, as it’s set to eradicate that annoying issue with the system’s latest firmware update today. Dubbed v3.10, the mandatory download will now allow you to display up to 500 apps on the home screen, as opposed to the current 100 apps. That should be more than enough for anyone.

However, the improvements don’t end there. Another new feature will allow you to share voice messages with friends on both the portable and the PlayStation 4. Meanwhile, the parental controls have been overhauled, while a Calendar application has been added which can sync with Google Calendar. You’ll also be able to share dates with your friends courtesy of the Messages and Email apps.

Other minor enhancements include the ability to better administrate your memory card in the Content Manager app, as well as minor improvements to the functionality of the Music and Video apps. You can now opt to automatically rotate the screen when viewing photos, and lastly a new 'Automatic Daylight Saving' toggle has been incorporated into the Settings area.

I'm not sure if it's just me, but the OS feels a lot snappier and responsive now. Most notably the notification menu.

I just hope they add a option to transfer PS Vita content to PS4 soon or maybe a option to stream

@NathanUC It sounds like there are a lot of non-listed improvements. I'll do a separate article on those later. Haven't had chance to try it yet, but that sounds like good news.

Thank you Sony for listening to the gamers. I can watch ffx cut scenes now without it dimming! And the other improvements are icing on the cake. My vita's as perfect as it can get.

And Sony if you're reading this, on Vita can we have a note editor (like on the 3DS) so we can jot notes please, whilst playing game. Better to type with text tho cos using pen on 3DS I can only write a few words. Oh and how about ability to link ps3/ps4 controller to vita.... need extra shoulder buttons!

That's great news! After reading Sammy's article about Vita's 64Gb memory stick I decided to import one (it seems my 16Gb is not enough for my portable gaming needs anymore lol). Since then I've been wondering if there were some kind of apps/games limitation. Besides, any updates with more than "Improved system stability" is always welcome!

Ive found the vita OS pretty nice so far so this update will be bonus. 100 apps. Okay so most vita games are PSN and you sell 64GB memory but then limit to 100 apps... not smart.

How about an update that lowers the price of memory cards? This would allow many users to experience the euphoria of even being able to store 100 apps on their Vita. Vita= life, but what is life without memory?
