Re: Sony photo album widget

Very, very, very disappointed about this! Not even come with an alternative or the option to install.. 👎🏻

I have been searching all over the world wide web but I can't find something similar to that amazing album widget..

Got my xz premium today. I have been using Z3, Z5, xz and now xz premium, why have you removed it, Sony? This widget was the best, please bring it back! Who has given you such a stupid feedback users don't use it much?!

Re: Sony photo album widget

Users don't use it? I use it all the time. Do you actually have to do a lot of work to make the widget compatible to newer models. I assumed that since you already have the code for it, you'd just roll it forward to newer models and new versions of the OS.

Re: Sony photo album widget

This widget was awesome! Was using it on a daily basis as I used my Xperia Z3 compact mainly as a digital camera. As it seems to be unique because there are no alternatives its really a shame that it got scrapped.

Well it doesn't really affect me anymore as after two consecutive Sony mobile phones I moved to Samsung's S9 (shame on me) because the lack of that widget, the inconvenient non-flat design of the Xz2 compact and inferior camera (especially when it comes to low light levels) made me turn away, although reluctantly, from the current Sony phone. I am happy with my choice now but I do miss the software of sony's phones. Menus are structured much clearer and the widgets used to be more useful.

 

But coming back to the Photos widget I would love to have an alternative showing recent pictures...but as others have posted already there is none availabe out there

Re: Sony photo album widget

I don’t know which widget you refer, my XA1 is my first Sony phone, but Snap Camera app has a widget to show recent pictures. I hope it works for somebody.

Re: Sony photo album widget

The photo albut widget was the only one that I was actually using on my previous sony phone and I really badly miss it on a new model! There're _no_ widgets similair to it, so bring it back please. It should not be _so_ difficult.

Thanks in advance!
