Voice Balloon Photo Ported to All Xperia Devices Running 4.1+
If a piece of software appears on any given Sony Xperia device, it’s pretty much only a matter of time before it’s ported over to another Xperia or group of Xperias. This has happened time and time again. And today, we present yet another example of this.
The Voice Balloon Photo camera addon is one of the coolest features to come along for the ride with the KitKat update that is now hitting several Xperia devices. Unfortunately, this software is normally only available for Xperia devices running official KitKat. Luckily, XDA Senior Member xperiaz2 was able to port the app addon to work with all Xperia devices running Android 4.1 or later.
Obviously, you must have Sony’s Smart Social Camera installed in order to use this camera addon. However, once everything is installed, you will be able to add audio to your photos with voice balloons and recognized text.
If you’ve got an Xperia device running Android 4.1-4.3 and want to try out the Voice Balloon Photo camera addon, head over to the application thread and give this ported app a shot.
