Sony Xperia Neo and Xperia S Receive ICS-Compatible Walkman App

The Walkman music application is something of an enigma. Despite the Walkman brand being outshone by other MP3 players, the Walkman music application continues to pop up on phones on the Sony Xperia line up, and users seem to really enjoy it over the stock music offering. With the Sony Xperia lineup receiving unofficial and official ICS updates, Gingerbread ports of the Walkman application have become obsolete. The natural reaction? Port them again!

Credited with the first ICS Walkman port that works, XDA Recognized Developer DooMLoRD released the new version of the APK for the Sony Xperia S for advanced users who want all the features. From there, XDA Senior Member ThilinaC brought it over to the Sony Xperia Neo in the form of a fully flashable update.zip file.

In both cases, little things need to be fixed but the main functions work fine, so anyone who wants to give it a shot won’t find a lot wrong. As is customary with Sony Xperia device development, users can expect this to pop up on any number of Sony Xperia devices in the near future, as developers get their hands on the application.

Xperia S users can find the app and goodies in DooMLoRD’s original thread, while Xperia Neo users can find their version in the Xperia Neo thread.
