    So they can’t do anything…

  • Yali AA

    Here is the APK:

  • Kiwison

    Why I don’t have Flickr option?

  • Alin

    Xperia P need update for that thumbnails appearance bug !

    I have to clear the data to work properly often.

  • Okazuma

    Works Great on Xperia S.
    Installed like normal apk

  • Nabeel Raza

    Sony is raining updates on the Z series :D

  • Uchiha Dare Nial

    Well do they care if I complaint at their official support?No right

  • vigneshprince

    what can this Blog can do about Ion? is it an official blog of Sony???

  • vigneshprince

    yeah so lucky to be on XZ side! :-D

  • praha

    Does Sony remember Xperia j anywhere ?

  • Prateek Bhanushali

    Still not better than the initial version released with Z !!! It takes a second or two for BE2 to come into the action……

  • ProWeirdo

    Wonder what will Z series users comment after few months…

  • Prateek Bhanushali

    They vl Say that Z lived with dignity, and as every Human come and go, Z vl leave with Respect… :)

  • Ben Ling

    Yea no but you complaint here also same…

  • Alef

    Estou amando esse comprometimento da sony com os lançamentos que não são mais carro chefe

  • josesl16

    …and why should they again?

  • josesl16

    …and why should they again?

  • TheSparks

    Does this Album support viewing photospheres like the Google Gallery app?

  • Xperia Gaga

    I’m using Tipo Dual running on android ICS and this update works like a charm :3

  • APai

    I wonder what rocket science is needed to build this app that it can ONLY run on Z series. amazing.

  • APai

    perhaps its integrated into the newer FW, like how how there’s twitter/ fb integration has been in older sony phones. I still cannot fathom why sony acts as if they don’t know pre Z series phones (T/ Ion/ S/ V etc)

  • Marian

    Because, this blog writes only about new phones.

    They don’t point to xperia ion with her problems!

  • Marian

    Why xperiablog. net newer write about software bugs on xperia ion? Sony Mobile don´t care and they newer release bug fix for current JB 4.1.2. !

  • Riccardo

    And SP!!

  • raxxta

    It’s Xperia Blog, not Xperia Z-Blog. Most ‘Xperia’ owners don’t have a Z phone.

  • tejaskasalkar

    I downloaded the apk file n installed it on my Xperia ion running on ICS 4.04 and its working fine for me

  • raj

    I GOT IT :D :D :D

  • Mac

    actually dey don’t only write about new phones. What dey do is write about all new Sony things for Xperia phones. I know it’s fucked up that ion haven’t seen the real JB 1.96 yet and it’s unbelievable thatdey hhaven’t evensaid aanything about it. So glad I made the decision to go for the Acro S instead of ion back in the day.
    edit: maybe it’s discuss ormy sSwiftKey that makes strange space and double letters..

  • Guest

    Coming to SP?

  • ProWeirdo

    I made a mistake, I shall say “… what will xperia z1 users will say after 6 months…”* The Z series will probably survive, but the current flagship.. nah.

  • howij

    What about xperia sp :(

  • APai

    I tried it on T – it’s working fine – but sluggish, i wonder if they have tied the kitchen sink to it ??? I just have about a 100 images. not optimized for lower spec’d devices for sure, but why does it need to be that sluggish ??

  • Senay Mehreteab

    works on my xs download like normal apk :-

  • alex

    it works well on my xperia acro s <3 thank you

  • Ben Lim

    Thanks Mr Ben Ling. Er our name is same haha

  • Ben Lim

    I know right. My ion is full of bug.

  • vigneshprince

    they will inform about news belongs to sony mobiles! if sony releases then only they can list here!

  • lasttodie

    Updated my Z, but no Flickr, Nice work Sony :(

  • APai

    actually, the z series is having it good. regular updates, new apps, promotions. makes all the owners of ion/ t/ v/ s etc sad , because they probably bought the devices a few months earlier – and that was a mistake!!!

  • josesl16

    Aha, so let’s name it the instead!

    Anyway, this will happen anywhere if your phone is less than 6 months old, at least high-end, which just happened that Sony named its newer higher-end devices beginning with Zs. It will always be so as lots of new things come out that relate to updates and accessories, especially for the newer line-ups. And your reply doesn’t even have anything to do with my post…

    Oh, and it’s not like Xperia Blog ignores any oncoming updates(Even for CM!) specifically for Xperia ion. If anything, Sony either forgot or hate it(just like how it is with the S), lol.

    I’ve got about 4000 photos on my T and it’s working’s even working on my Xperia Neo (yay!) so there’s something gone wrong with your install I’d suggest.
