Insomniac’s latest title in the Spider-Man franchise, Marvel’s Spider-Man: Miles Morales, takes the franchise forward in many ways despite borrowing the core elements from the previous game. One of the most interesting additions is the Friendly Neighborhood Spider-Man App.
Developed by Ganke, the Friendly Neighborhood Spider-Man App notifies you of requests from other people in New York City who needs help. You can switch between crimes and activities by using the L1 and R1 keys. To access the Friendly Neighborhood Spider-Man App, you need to swipe left on the DualShock 4’s touchpad.
Activities are the requests raised by other people, and they offer more rewards than regular crimes. These can award you with certain Suits as well, such as the Bodega Cat Suit, which is unlocked after finishing the Cat’s Pyjamas mission. After opening the Friendly Neighborhood Spider-Man App, all you need to do is select any activity or crime and press the Cross button to select it.
Apart from manually accessing the Friendly Neighborhood Spider-Man App, it also opens up when there is a mission nearby. This can be turned on or off from the HUD section in the in-game settings.
