Sony showed a glimpse of new Xperia media apps at MWC 2014 on Xperia Z2 but yet the same media apps are not found in the leaked system dump of Xperia Z2, hope Sony updates them soon for everyone. A few days back we got our hands on new Xperia Z2 KitKat media apps Album 5.4.A.0.22, Movies 6.1.A.0.16 and Walkman 8.1.A.0.6 but they were not working on devices as they were pulled directly from Xperia Z2 but now XDA dev dvha79_ddt has ported these app to other Xperia smartphones.
