Re: Walkman 8.5.A.2.7 update

I don't mind the change to the interface, but the bug causing Walkman to fail finding songs is major. The update should be pulled and not re-released until this bug is fixed.

DO NOT release alpha-grade software to the public if you want to survive, Sony. There's a reason the company is going belly up, and it's the shocking lack of quality, an area where Sony was once the leader that other companies followed. Now it's Sony that's trying to keep up, and doing a terrible job.

I recently noticed that bug as well. Track ID team has a beta test program for their Lollipop version of Track ID on Google+ they are always taking our feedbacks and they release updated versions every week or so. Why cant the Walkman development team do the same thing and make a public beta app released to xperia owners and take feedback from us on Google+ group?

New Walkman app update

I don't like the new design very much. All the purple elements on the top part of the submenus (playlists, track titles, etc.) are not nearly as elegant and subtle as they were maybe meant to be. The old version of the app looked better. I hope we get a restyled version soon.

I think this is just a temporary solution or design for lollipop release until Sony pulls the plug off Music Unlimited. Even though the design didnt change much but I personally like it in terms of simplicity. However, PlayStation Music is coming out soon and its going provide a different experience if not very similar to Spotify, for that I believe the Walkman app will get a major redesign (that is assuming PlayStayion Music will be integrated in it)

If you have updated your Xperia™ SP to Walkman® version 8.5.A.2.7, the music beat illumination may not fully work. The concerned team is aware of this issue and it will be fixed in next software release.
