in Applications, Xperia Z2

Sketch 4.1_6Sony has given the Sketch app a big update in the form of Sketch 4.1. The update is currently rolling out to Xperia Z2 users, which moves the build version from 1.0.A.4.5 to 2.0.A.1.1. Sketch 4.1 includes a number of big improvements including a Sticker store allowing you to download new sticker packs, pan and zoom to edit details of your drawings, back up and sync (using your Sony Entertainment Network account) and the addition of landscape support. Overall a nice update, especially since the Xperia Z2 includes stylus support. If other Xperia owners have received the update, let us know in the comments below. If you want to try it yourself, the apk can be found here.

  • Kamil1308

    Downloaded the Pen mode apk and now it allows me to use pretty much any point object eg. Pencil, Keys as a stylus

  • Rex

    Can i know where to download the apk??

  • Kamil1308
  • Rex

    Haha… But i don’t want to root my phone…xP

  • Kamil1308

    Why is that if you don’t mind me asking ? It comes is really handy

  • Rex

    Because i scare that once my phone got problem… I have no more warranty.. And dunno how to fix it..

  • Kamil1308

    I owned 3 Xperia phones rooted all of them nothing happened. Never had a case for my phone of course i drooped each of them plenty of times and nothing happened. I even drooped my z1 couple of times and 2 twice i would have cracked the screen if it wasn’t for a glass protector. I would recommend you get one and root the phone. Its pretty safe and it can even save you a lot of money.

  • Rex

    So… Do you mind to give me a safe and easy link for me to root my phone? I’m currently using Z1 4.4.2…

  • Kamil1308

    Ya sure. this guy is really good when it comes to explaining he makes it easy.
