Party Mode On with U-Disco for the Sony Xperia U Illumination Bar

Many love the illumination bar in some of the newer Sony Xperia phones. It adds a very futuristic look to the already excellent build of these devices, and also functions as a nifty LED notification system. XDA Forum Member rundgong was in a mood to party, and decided to take it one step further. He wrote an app that turns the illumination bar LED lights on the Sony Xperia U into disco lights!

The app is called U-Disco, and it currently has two modes: plain blinks, and blinks driven by the music you are currently playing! That’s right, you can even have the lights blink in sync with the song you’re playing to truly personalize your party mode!

U-Disco requires a rooted Sony Xperia U to work, as it requires root access to control the individual LEDs in the illumination bar. So what are you waiting for? Head over to the forum thread, grab U-Disco and get your party mode on! You can add even more oomph by installing a flashlight app with strobe mode.
