I feel that most of the stock apps donot justify the true potential of this phone so here are some apps that I have tried out and liked!(All these apps can be downloaded off the market for free)
1) Launcher Pro: Alternate launcher. Very light and simple UI. High degree of Customisation is the biggest highlight.
2) MortPlayer Music: Most of us arrange music files using folders and the music app on this phone does not recognize folder structure. Enter MortPlayer.
3) APP2SD: Free up valuable internal memory by moving apps to the SD Card.
4) MyBackup: Prepare for the worst by keeping a backup of your user data(including messages, phone logs, dictionary, contacts etc.)
5) Whatsapp: Message all your friends(they just have to install whatsapp on their phone) for free. Photo, video and music sharing is a breeze with this app. Whatsapp is available for Blackberry, Nokia, Apple and WindowsMobile too. So recommend this to your friends.
6) Opera Mobile: This speedy little browser is very easy to use and flash videos load in a jiffy given a good internet speed.
7)Audio Manager: Hides all your personal/private files. You can't even find the files in your SD Card once hidden!
8)Juice Defender: Extend the battery Life with this app.
9)tTorrent: Download torrent files on your phone.
10) Call Meter NG: Keep a tab on your data usage, call durations, messaging etc.

pcmmcp, 20 Feb 2012Did you ever had any kind of problem with the internal memory? No, I have not had any issues in Internal memory.
Whenever my phone starts to lag, I go to "Settings->Applications->Running Services" and I stop all the un-needed applications.
Also, restart your phone at least once in 24 hours. This helps free up memory space.
I am planning to root my phone and flash Cyanogenmod7.
I will post my findings when I do that.

Ajmal Basheer, 20 Feb 2012Initially when I bought the phone I did not have that feature but after one of the updates it ... moreCool!
Had never noticed they re-shuffle and it is really a nice feature.
No real use for it, but it looks great!

AnonD-32381, 20 Feb 2012thanks Ajmal....for your reply... one another question from your point of view what is main d... moreI should've checked the specs before posting previous comment. Arc has Qualcomm MSM8255T Snapdragon Chipset but Arc has Qualcomm MSM8255 Snapdragon. The difference is just the T at the end of the chipset name, don't know what it means. But UI is the same I guess. Try posting the same question in Arc S forum. Someone who owns Arc S would be able to answer that...

But I have read that the Arc also can be overclocked to 1.4Ghz. Arc S and Arc has the same processor.

[deleted post]Initially when I bought the phone I did not have that feature but after one of the updates it started behaving like that. The widgets start floating around when we use pinch to zoom in home screen. When we shake the phone, the widgets reshuffle themselves. Cool feature!!!
I should have one of this fantastic phone!! I nust stole it from Smart network
they should make one with a keyboard like the Xperia pro
and call it the Xperia ARC pro.
[deleted post]Thanks buddy!!! I had xperiablog in my mind. Our friend Ustu had adviced me to regularly check Xperialog but I hardly get time or i hardly remember it when i have time. In the available time, the only site i regulary check is gsmarena... Will try to make a habit to check xperiablog regularly... I'd like to check out cosmic flow...
Ajmal Basheer, 16 Feb 2012Oops!!! I shoudl've googled before asking that silly question. DId now. Thanks for the info bro...You should check out xperiablog.net. They have the latest news on all Xperia phones. Official + non-official. I just got the 'Cosmic Flow' live wallpaper, the official Xperia S wallpaper. Pretty.
I bought this device two weeks ago, and it is running perfectly with no lags at all... My problem is: when I put the initial memory card, the pictures don't open!!!! And the gallery "force close"... Can someone help me??? PLEASE...

clintmamerto, 15 Feb 2012Does this support email from work? Or do you still need to download an app for that?Of course it does supoprt office email. I can get my office email on my phone but I have not enabled it now coz in my office email server configuration I can receive email only on one client device. So I preferred office PC itself. So you see, it depends on the ability of your office network system and email server configuration whether you can receive it on your phone. Get in touch with the office technical team and they should be able to tell you if it is possible and if yes, how to configure it.
