How to start Xperia S in safe mode?

Recently i downloaded the spb mobile shell apps in google play. When i tried it, the programs ask if i want to always use it when i started the phone. I clicked yes.

But then it went to activating the program, but to my dismay, it said that the programs doesnt compatible. Ok, i think i'll just uninstall it after i restarted the phone. But after i restarted it, the phone always use spb mobile shell after start up. Because the compatibility problem, the start up screen shows blank. I cant access menu to uninstall the program.

This happened everytime i restarted the phone. Without restoring the phone to factory setting, is there anyway to start the phone in safe mode so i can uninstall the SPB program?

Thx in advance guys.

Its the option/ menu touch sensitive button ( rightmost  )

as soon as you start your Xperia tap and hold on option key/menu key and after sometime you will see safe mode written on the bottom left side of the screen
