Sony Album_6.6.A.0.6_1Sony has released a new update to its Album application that moves the build number from version 6.5.A.0.10 to 6.6.A.0.6. Sony says that this new update mainly consists of “bug fixes and performance enhancements“. However, one other very small change is that an icon is now included in the “Folders” menu which shows whether those photos are stored on the phone’s internal storage or SD card. Check out the pictures below to highlight the change between the old and new versions.

    Love the Xperia sp!! (look the 3rd picture)!

  • Guest

    That’s not the SP (volume button is the other side of the power button), but I do love the SP. I hope Sony will come out with a successor.

    xperia album ui small app new feature folder, and edit photo/effect in album

  • Dickson

    very good

  • rohorubo

    Still no possibility to move a picture to a folder/album…unbelievable

  • Arturo Pastrana

    its an album app not a photo manager, you can use Solid explorer to move your pictures for example ;)

  • rohorubo

    Well, other manufacturer (f.e. HTC)also have the possibility to do it directly in the app. Why going the long way when it would be possible to do it directly.

    I have SP before upgrading to Z1.Miss the old LED bar compared to 1/2 led light on Z1.

    Wanting a new Xperia SP2

  • Jiggidi Jens

    Yeah and Samsung too. Their app is really smooth and simple

  • Chaturanaga Manchanayake

    Awesome, High five. I just wanna see how Sony’s gonna change the icons of these apps and interface for Lollipop. My thoughts are that interface will get a minor touch up. yet flat icon design? We saw leaks of Samsung, Hope to see a leak build for Sony too.

    I’m actually hoping that sony will give lollipop update faster than expected, maybe by christmas? Lol

  • Chaturanaga Manchanayake

    You can’t really tell. They might release cause we saw they released 4.4.4 earlier than others, for Z1, Z1C.

  • Thanks for sharing, this is exactly what I longed for ever since this app was introduced. Really glad Sony cares about us photographers!

  • JohnSmith

    Sony please update the calender app. Let the icon display the date of the day.

    Speaking of photography, I’ve just had this workshop with the most prominent photographer in my country

    He actually ditch his DSLR and uses his Z3 for his his travel shootout and his job (shooting celebrities, fashion shows.. Etc) very interesting to say the least and his shots were amazing, too bad he doesn’t have a flickr account -___-”

  • The thing is, a lot of creative kinds of photography (perspective, contrast) can be done with any camera. And smartphone cameras have good lenses for portrait photography as well – if you have the ideas, the models and the creativity, I can imagine some awesome shots being created with phones. Today’s cameraphones are definitely more than capable of awesome photography practice. It’s just that most people use phones as a point-and-shoot device, and that’s why most pictures look dull.

    It really is about the photographer rather than the device for photography.

    I’m curious though, the poster also mentions Lowlight photography. Xperia phones are okay at night shots, but they have yet to seriously blow me away. Also curious: what was in the Xperia goodie bag? ;P

    P.S. I don’t believe he ditched his DSLR for good. I sometimes go out with just my phone as well, to see what I can do with it. Sometimes photography is the more interesting when you have limitations. It makes you think more, before you take the shot.

  • Faisal Armand

    Well, he ditched his DSLR because it’s too heavy and unpractical. And nah, he doesn’t ditch it for good.

    There are xperia tumbler, 2015 xperia calendar, a discount voucher for buying Xperia smartphone, and a copper gold xperia name tag necklace.

    As for the low light shot, he has experiences with samsung galaxy S5 & iphone 5S camera. And he doesn’t like their cameras, mainly because their camera ecosystem doesn’t allow much creativity and their low light capabilities are below xperia Z2 & xperia Z3.

    And as for the motto, yep.. The secret behind the best camera is the hand who operates it. You’re not going to take great shots, even with Sony A7R (one of the greatest DSLR) if you don’t know how to use it
