Sony Mobile is looking to shutter two more apps according to notices that have appeared. Both the ‘What's New' app and the ‘Audio Recorder' apps will be retired on 30 September 2019. The ‘What's New' app was Sony's curated selection of apps that it was looking to promote. Most users always looked for a way to disable the app, so we don't imagine many will miss it.
This is not likely to be the case for the 'Audio Recorder’ app, which provided a clean, minimalist UI to record audio and it’s a shame that Sony is removing all subscription data by the end of September. It’s very likely that the app will continue afterwards, but Sony says the app "may not function as intended". Will you miss these apps? Let us know in the comments below.
Thanks Alexander, Ben, Saša and Vitaliy!
