If you have taken a liking to Sony’s Xperia Home launcher then you will not be happy to hear that the company has made a business decision to cease development of this launcher. It’s not going to bring any new features to the Xperia Home launcher from now on and the updates that are released will only bring bug fixes.

Sony has shipped the Xperia Launcher on its smartphones for quite some time now but it has now decided to stop developing it any further.
The Sony Mobile developers behind Xperia Home have today confirmed that they will no longer be actively developing the home launcher going forward.
