Where Do I Find S-Pen Apps For My Galaxy Note? In The Samsung App Store Of Course!

Posted on Mar 23 2012 - 7:40am by Kyle

The 5.3″ Samsung Galaxy Notehas taken the world by storm. Prior to South By Southwest the company announced they had already sold more than two million of the phone-blet device. It’s been one of my favorite devices. To me it’s the perfect size to give near tablet functionality in a smaller, more pocket sized experience.

One of the unique things about the Galaxy Note is the S-Pen. This digital pen works great as a navigation tool but it’s also deeply integrated with the software for the phone. The S-Pen offers easy screen shot capability, annotating capabilities and a variety of ways to interact with apps.

The Google Play store can be a gigantic beast to comb through when you’re looking for apps, especially when you’re looking for phone specific apps. Samsung has simplified that process by providing their own “Samsung Apps” store.  The Samsung Apps store highlights apps that would be great for you and your device. Then to complete the download it takes you to the Google Play store.

Samsung offers a specific location just for S-Pen apps.  The S-Pen category in the Samsung Apps Store is a mixture of great productivity, art, and kids apps. Familiar apps and developers have customized versions that interact and take advantage of the functionality of the S-Pen.

Some of the apps include TouchRetouch which allows you to retouch photos using the S-Pen to be more precise.  The fun photo app Skitch has an S-Pen version which allows you to annotate pictures with texts, words, and drawings. Hello Crayon and Hello Colored pencil are art drawing apps geared for kids.

In the productivity realm there is iJournal by Catch which allows you to take journal entries with handwriting recognition and the same goes for Power Office + Drop Box for Note.

There are several other apps in the S-Pen section of the Samsung Apps store. Also don’t forget about the special Galaxy edition of Angry Birds, which looks great on the Galaxy Note screen.

Find the Samsung Apps Store in your Galaxy Note.

    I’m not sure where you gathered no one is buying this? Samsung has sold 5,000,000 Notes to date. I bought one and replaced my Nexus with it as a daily driver. I love it.

    I bought one to replace my jailbroken iphone4 and the only thing i miss about is my custom volume button setting that allowed me to skip tracks on any app; when i figure it out on the note i will burn my i4 for the lies it told for year “…the best smart phone on the market…”
    The Note does out of the box, what the iphone stuggles to do jailbroken

    Brian is just clueless. I’ve been a devoted iphone user since the first one. Which I still have and use as a spare phone. So it has been dependable. The Outterbox helps. My Samsung note has forgotten more then my iPhone 4s has ever known. Not just was a smart phone, it’s not even as good as just a phone. Pretty sad for a company that was the leader. They maybe a part of the past, like Palm and Blackberry, if they keep trying to service from their laurels. BRIAN…WAKE UP!

    Wow Brian, you hopped on this post fast..FIRST! right, lol? Its like it was your paying job to post pro apple stuff on forums. That would be silly though huh?

    I believe that the Samsung Galaxy Note 2 has to be the best cell phone/mini tablet on the market. I have never seen a cell phone that can be dropped in a full sink of water (without any special covers for protection) and still continue to work.

    In fact my 3 year old granddaughter introduced my note 2 to the sink of water without my knowledge. When I just so happened to catch a glance of it in the sink, I seen my new Note 2 sitting in the bottom of the sink. Get this; the home screen was still displaying while under the water. Of course, I removed the phone quickly and begun removing the back cover to check for water. I found maybe 10 small drops of water under the battery. I also found the speakers not working. I quick 5 minute low heat session with the hair dryer took care of that problem.

    I cannot believe for the life of me that the phone is still working without any problems.

    Great job Samsung. You have designed a phone that is almost water tight without the addition of after market cover designed for water submersion.

    I love my Galaxy 110.1,
    but there are times when
    I could use an Instruction Manual.
    Looked online but could not find
    one.

  • G. Reynolds

    Correction — Should be “my Galaxy 10.1″
