An idea to you

Try to provide updates for apps like phone,contacts,messaging,themes,wallpapers,launchers and every sony built system apps to all xperia models to attract more customers and avoid wasting time and cost in developing a whole os.If u do so no one will ask for newer os upadte thereby it reduces your time,cost moreover u can conserve time and cost to concentrate in developing a newer device.

Re: Walkman 8.4.A.5.4 update

I am using T2 Ultra, the preloaded walkman (dont remeber the version) was good, 5.4 and previous versions i am facing issue, i am not sure whether this is problem with Wlakman or firmware. Walkman gets paused in between while playing for 5 to 6 secs. So i order to confirm whether its a problem with Walkman or Firmware, i have downloaded other Music player, i see the same problem in this too. could anybody help me what eactly it is?

Re: Walkman 8.4.A.5.4 update

Has the limit on amount of songs in a smart playlist been changed? I'm sure before I had more than 50 in my Recently Played and Newly Added but now both are stuck at 50...

Everything works perfectly. Thanks Sony. Please add sort option menu in the playlist. For example, sort by Artist, Album for the next version.

Re: Walkman 8.4.A.5.4 update

everytime i select a new song I have to press the shuffle button again.... please fix this in the next update..
the music should remain in shuffle mode when i select a new song...
and please increase the size of the album art shown in now playing...
and also the changing colourse of the media player with every song, as was in with previous versions, was good...

Re: Walkman 8.4.A.5.4 update

I've updated the Walkman; it's good but I've got some issues. For example items in home are fewer as you said but there's no "see all" button in mine! I'm not sure if it's the same case for others.
The listen next album art isn't blurry anymore but when playing a song, on the lock screen album art is blurry when it's magnified. Please fix this.
I really appreciate it if you could let us choose the albums or Playlists we like to be shown on the home screen. If the home screen was customizable it would be great! Let us exclude the albums from Walkman, add more information to the songs (composer, arranger,...), and choose artists' photos ourselves.
Thanks for your attention;
