The launcher brings important news. And it is that, in reality, it is one of the most important changes that we have seen in recent times for Sony Xperia officially. The Japanese company makes good-quality devices, but sometimes it makes mistakes with the software, such as delays in updates, lack of new features and features, or how heavy the system is. At least with this launcher we will see notable changes in the appearance of the device.
The launcher of Sony Xperia would go to version 5.1.S.0.0, and we would notice important differences with respect to the previous versions. Now the dock has a different background image, with a translucent bar in the bottom half. The application drawer has also had a remarkable restyling. In general, the flourishes are left aside, to get closer to the style that Google marked with Holo, being much more minimalist.
But there are not only novelties regarding the aesthetic aspect of the launcher, but also functional ones. For example, a search bar has been added inside the app drawer. In old devices it was not necessary, since the number of applications that we could install was limited if we wanted to get it to work properly. However, today, on smartphones like the Xperia SWith the large capacity it has, we can install applications without thinking about the occupied space. Therefore, the possibility of searching becomes interesting.
Improvements have also been added when we are customizing the home screen. Whether we are changing the theme, the wallpaper, introducing a shortcut, a widget, or a specific application, a menu will open in the bottom bar where all the available options are offered depending on the change we are making.
As a last notable novelty, we must talk about the possibility of having up to seven pages on the main screen, instead of the five that we could have before.
