Re: Whats New App - Disable or remove - HOW CAN I DO THIS?

J'ai installé la mise a jour, j'ai redémarré le téléphone, j'ai désinstaller"what's new" j'ai redémarré le téléphone,et oh surprise what's new est revenu et je ne peux toujours pas le désactiver n'y le désinstaller.

Merci sony d'implanter un virus dans vos téléphone.

I installed the update, I restarted the phone, I uninstall "what's new" I restarted the phone, and oh surprise what's new came back and I still can not disable it there uninstall.

Thank you sony to implant a virus in your phone.

Re: Get rid of "What's New"

I agree, between the lounge, what's new and the array of other useless apps forced on me between Sony and my service provider i have half a dozen applications that I am unable to truly remove or stop completely. what were the developers thinking? 'hey guys let's make a pointless app and have it spam users with notifications about trash and then, for jokes let's make it impossible to stop'...  great... by now android users know what they want and they don't need to be reminded daily of some arbitrary new theme or update to some rubbish I have never installed in the first place.

Re: Get rid of "What's New"

I have said no notification from Whats New app and given it no permissions so why does it keep bothering me with adverts for various things? If it keeps popping on to the notification backscreen I am swapping back to Samsung or Iphone - it is very very annoying.

Re: Get rid of "What's New"

Dear Christopher!
I've bought a new Sony Xperia ZX1 and disabled all notifications, banned all permissions but this appears again and again in notification!  Why does it appear in my notification area?

This is my third Xperia phone (before was Z1 and Z5) and every time "What's new" becomes more annoying!

Re: Whats New App - Disable or remove - HOW CAN I DO THIS?

I have to agree, it's a nuisance... as a result, my next phone won't be a Sony, very sad to say...
