Loading up the right apps on your Xperia device can make a huge difference to your productivity and efficiency. The problem is, when you’re busy, who has the time to search the internet for apps that will make a genuine difference to your day?

Here at Sony Mobile we believe in providing products and services that empower you to do more. To help you make the most of your device we’ve rounded up our favourite time-saving apps (after all saving 10 minutes every day would mean claiming back almost three days over the course of a year.)

Fed up of your phone dimming down when you need it most? Kin Screen automatically ensures that the screen on your smartphone never turns off while you’re using it and even turns it off when you’re not. It does this by monitoring sensors in your device, detecting even the subtlest movements – so you’ll never get left in the dark again.

GoogleHandwritingGoogle Handwriting

For a lot of people handwriting will always be the more efficient method of communication. Google Handwriting has taken this notion on board and allows users to replace the traditional mobile keyboard with a blank space where you type with your own handwriting.
