Sony Xperia XZ1
Widgets:
You won't be able to use some of the stock Xperia widgets with this launcher:
ClockWidgets, WeatherWidget, SocialPane-FeedWidget, SocialPane-FriendsWidget, SocialPane-StatusWidget, MusicWidget, NoteWidget, OnOffTools, PhotoWidget, RecentCallsWidget

Modified versions of them that work with the launcher and will not overwrite the stock versions are available bellow (install as normal apps):
ClockWidgets
WeatherWidget
PhotoWidget
RecentCallsWidget
OnOffTools
- OnOffTools needs to be installed as a system app (push to /system/app and set correct permissions) if you want to toggle GPS and/or NFC with it!
MusicWidget - MusicWidget requires non-Xperia users to install the SemcMusic (Walkman) app from Xperia S / T / V etc. Search for it on XDA-Developers
NoteWidget - NoteWidget requires non-Xperia users to install the SemcNotes app


Change Log:

- Fixed: Status bar was transparent when showing notifications (if the status bar was previously hidden)

great work. apk please

I am an avid user of your Xperia S launcher and admire like anything. just wishing your good luck ahead . Xperia launchers are my favorite as they are less on RAM.
regards.
ankjain:fingers-crossed:

WOW.. what a great work MAN. hats off. the only thing i hated in previous Xperia S launcher was dock background color which was a nuisance ( allow me to say this as many people wanted a transparent dock) and you DID it Man. 5 ***** . you made my day as this is only using 15 mb ram on my Micromax A90s . i believe that with new editions you will be able to reduce the RAM.
:) :)
