The one great thing about Sony’s Small Apps feature found on their Xperia devices is not the multitasking that they grant users, but that developers are allowed and encouraged to develop their own Xperia Small Apps to their hearts’Â content with the Sony Add-on SDK. Well, XDA Senior MemberÂ soumya_digiÂ came out with not one, but two Small Apps called Media Controls and Let Me Google That For You (LMGTFY).
The Media Controls Small App is a much welcomed and needed Small App for Xperia users. It is not unlike the previously featured Floating Music ControlsÂ in function, with the standard next and previous controls, and pausing and playing songs. This means starting music playback without having to exit the foreground app and opening the music player or swiping to that conveniently placed music widget.
The LMGTFY Small App is also pretty simple and self-explanatory, allowing users to generate a LMGTFY link, and packed in a Small App means generating a link without even existing the currently open application. Soumya_digi also included a nifty feature for shortening the LMGTFY link.
Built upon the Xperia Z or T Small Apps framework, it is a requirement for users to have the Xperia Z/T Small Apps framework to have these up and running properly. So if you have the Small Apps feature on your Xperia device and would like to check out these Small Apps, make sure to head over here for the Media Controls and here for LMGTFY.
