Default [Q] 4.0.4 alarm clock,can it run on 4.4.2?

Hey guys.
I was hoping someone could help me a bit.

I have gotten a new Sony Xperia Z1 Compact (android 4.4.3), but i HATE the system clock widget/app with the analog hands,and minimalist design,so i installed an apk extractor on my Samsung Galaxy S3 (android 4.0.4) to try and get the system clock app from there as i absolutly love it with its big digital numbers,and exact manual input of desired countdown timer,and apk extracted fine,but when i try and install it on my xperia i get an "app not installed" error after installation actually has happened.

Is this not possible what i am trying to do? Is the clock proprietary to each company the phone is from?

Any insight is greatly appreciated as i have very little knowledge about these phones and android

This is the clock i am hoping to get on my Xperia:

Looks like you are after proprietary .apks, maybe try the clock from aosp or just downloading one from the app store

Well, i havent found one on app store that has 4 different apps in 1 it like this one does,otherwise i wouldnt ask if this would work. So the alarm/clock is NOT a native ice cream sandwich,but a proprietary one? Could you maybe point me in the direction of the clock you are referring to?

Starting around ICS or maybe jb the aosp app became the 4 in 1 as you call it, but manufactures like Samsung Sony etc sometimes transform the app to their liking making it proprietary and need specific framework to run on a device.
You should be able to just open up an aosp ROM and take out the .apk then push it and install to your device
