Smartphone cameras have advanced so tremendously over the past few years that they have almost completely replaced point and shoot digital cameras for the most of us. Furthermore, since our smartphones are always with us, the majority of us end up taking tons of photos throughout the lifespan of our devices. But what happens to all the old photos you take?

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.

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.

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.

Along side the partnership with Microsoft, Cyanogen also recently announced...
