Tested some of the apps on the Xperia Z. Here are my findings:

Works:
Supernote from ASUS (installs fine, works but tab icons are cut off)
Power Controls
SwitchPro Widget
UCam Ultra Camera Pro
Floating Browser Flux
AirCalc
Dolphin Browser HD
A.I.Type Keyboard
Skyscanner
PicsArt - Photo Studio
My Apks
Bar Shortcut
JustPictures
Solid Explorer
exDialer
UCCW
CIRCLE BATTERY DISC WIDGET
BATTERY BAR SYSTEM PANEL

Doesn't work:
Illumination Bar Notification (obvious reasons)
ICS Browser+
Wave Control (wouldn't install from Play Store)

Will test more.

This allows me to swipe music videos for the next one, previous one, stop, play or even mute while driving ( I have long road trips with by myself, friends and family so its a great visual distraction for them )

A web browser is tricky, each person has there own preference.
Ive used the default browser, opera since java and symbian phones. And dolphin.
Type in 'web browser' in Google play and look at the top 20 its all trial and error.


Edit looks like puffin web browser has flash?

Edit again.
Maybe even top 30 ,quite a few new browsers.
I like floating browsers too so you could try one like floating browser flux or overskreen which wouldn't be bad on the 5 inch screen.

Timescape widget from Arc will not work later because Sony is leaving Timescape and will replace it with Sociallife app seen in it's tablets.

current project: preparing mods for Z1
previous project: Advanced Xperia X10 ROM

I think it will be nice, that someone to make a software, like the illumination bar from xperia t. But for xperia z, and the illumination bar to be displayed on the screen when it`s in stand by.
I think il will not drain so much battery

I'm wondering if the lock-screen can be turned off in the settings?
If not, can someone test the app No Lock and see if it works?
https://play.google.com/store/apps/d...WQubm9sb2NrIl0.

HTC phones have issues turning off lock screens due to Sense built deep into the system..
Thanks!
