Get Social with the Xperia Z2’s Socialife App Ported to All Xperia Devices

Sony loves to add various social applications to their device firmwares. In 2010, they added Timescape, which integrates messages with Facebook, Twitter, and other social networks. Four years later, they still believe that social networks are the best way to keep their customers connected—and they’re likely right. Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, and many other similar services are dominating the Web.

A new version of Sony’s social application Sociallife is available on the Xperia Z2’s firmware. Having this new flagship is not a requirement though, as XDA Senior Member xperiaz2 modded the original Socialife application to work without issues on other Sony devices even with Ice Cream Sandwich installed. Your firmware version won’t stop you from keeping in close contact with your family and friends, and Socialife will inform them about your current status. The ported app should work with all Xperia phones running stock or stock-based software.

You can grab the application and discuss it in the original thread in Cross-Device Development Projects for Sony Devices forum. If you like social networks, go there and don’t forget to share this article on your wall.

PSA: You Can Optimize Your Note 4’s Recents Menu & RAM

The Note 4 never had the fastest Recents Menu, and despite its 3GB of RAM, its app-holding capabilities only got worse on Lollipop. The infamous RAM bug that plagued the S6 is indeed an annoyance on the Note 4's 5.0.X ROMs. Rumors of an update to fix all of this were confirmed with the first reports of the 5.1.1 update for the Russian Note 4, which seemingly improved the Recents Menu and RAM management. But it'll be a long time...
