Samsung Galaxy S4 Apps

When you think of installing apps onto your Galaxy S4, the virtual store that typically comes to mind is most likely the Google Play store. But your S4 can also access apps that are specifically designed for Samsung devices, through the Samsung App store. No matter which store you visit, and you can technically shop in both, you'll need a strong Wi-Fi or 4G signal and space on your phone or SD card to install the app.

Samsung Galaxy S4 Apps

Download Zip:

Ironically, the Galaxy S4 does not come pre-loaded with the Samsung App store application, so you'll need to download it yourself by opening your phone's browser and visiting the Samsung App website (see link in Resources). Download the Samsung Apps store app and install it on your phone. Shopping through the Samsung Apps store is similar to the Google Play store, as you can search by name or under categories for your favorite apps. When you find one you like, tap the price button to start the download. As with Google's store, you'll need to create an account with Samsung to download apps, so you'll be prompted to sign in or create a new account before the download commences.

The more specific apps are likely to be of more limited use, such as S Translator and S Health. S Translator is a language translation app that unfortunately (like several Samsung apps) pushes you into signing up for a Samsung account. S Health is a basic fitness, exercise and diet tracker.

With every year, Samsung seems more keen to appeal to a wider audience with its TouchWiz apps, but some moves make the Galaxy S4 Active a bit trickier, or more confusing, to use. For example, there are proprietary Samsung app and music/video/books portals, called Samsung Apps and Samsung Hub. These are in direct competition with the Google Play stores also found on the phone.

Want to download new apps from Google Play? It's easy, but remember you need to set up your mobile phone for internet and activate your Google account before you can use this function.

Although not the one and only source, the Google Play Store is the default primary source of apps for most Android users. Its accompanying app allows you to discover and install new apps or remove and uninstall old ones.

Take note, however, that if you manually install apps through some other way besides the Play Store, those apps sometimes do not appear on the list in the Play Store app. Such apps can be uninstalled through other means.

ES File Explorer, for example, has an App Manager component that lets you uninstall, backup, share, or send apps. Most remote device management apps such as AirDroid also have app uninstallation features.

While the Google Play Store remains the usual and most familiar route for installing and uninstalling apps on the Galaxy S4, there are actually other methods for removing apps. In this article, you learned how to uninstall apps on the Galaxy S4. To learn more about how to use your Galaxy s4 download the Galaxy s4 manual.

This is pretty easy to do.Just go to Settings->Buttons and scroll down to Menu button. Below that you see Short press action and you can select your preferred action (Recent apps switcher in your case).

There is not much information regarding the handset on the site, considering the site's focus is on apps. All we learn is that the phone looks very similar to the Galaxy S4 (as do most other Samsung phones these days), has the new weather widget from the S4 as well, which means the phone likely runs on Android 4.2.2 similar to the S4 (and expected shortly for the S III) and that the model number is GT-I9195.

Other new pre-loaded apps include WatchOn (an electronic program guide that can utilize the S4's infrared transmitter to be a remote control), S Translator, the workout tracker S Health, S Voice Drive, S Memo, TripAdvisor, and an optical character recognition app.[45] The previous "Hub" apps from past Samsung devices were replaced by a single Samsung Hub app, with access to music, e-books, and games that can be purchased by users.[18]

In February 2014, Samsung began rolling out an update to Android 4.4.2 "KitKat" for the S4; the update adds user interface tweaks such as a camera shortcut on the corner of the lock screen, options for setting default launcher and text messaging applications, support for printing, and a new location settings menu for tracking and controlling the use of location tracking by apps.[64][65][66] It also makes significant changes to the handling of secondary storage on the device for security reasons; applications' access to the SD card is restricted to designated, app-specific directories only, while full access to internal primary storage is still allowed. Although this behavior has existed since Android 3.0 "Honeycomb", OEMs such as Samsung previously modified their distributions of Android to retain the previous behavior, allowing applications to have unlimited access to SD card contents.[67]

The S4 received many positive reviews, though some criticism. Gigaom's Tofel says he would recommend the S4 "without hesitation" and says that it's "Samsung's defining phone".[108] ReadWrite's Rowinski described the phone as a "solid" and "first-rate smartphone", but criticised Samsung's use of "bloatware, pre-loaded apps and features that you will likely never use".[109] TIME's McCraken says the S4 is a smartphone with everything; it has the biggest screen and the most built-in features. He wishes the S4 would mark the end of Samsung's plan to add too many new features with its flagship smartphones.[110]

Critics noted that about half of the internal storage on the S4's 16 GB model was taken up by its system software, using 1 GB more than the S III and leaving only 8.5 to 9.15 GB for the storage of other data, including downloaded apps (some of which cannot be moved to the SD card). Samsung initially stated that the space was required for the S4's new features, but following a report regarding the issue on the BBC series Watchdog, Samsung stated that it would review the possibility of optimising the S4's operating system to use less local drive space in a future update.[113][114][115] Storage optimizations were brought in an update first released in June 2013, which frees 80 MB of internal storage and restores the ability to move apps to the device's microSD card.[116]

To create a folder, press and hold an icon that you want to move into the folder, and drag it onto the Create Folder icon at the top of the screen. Type a name for the new folder in the Create Folder dialog, and then tap the OK button. To add other apps to the folder, tap the folder, tap the plus (+) icon, select the check box for each app to add, and tap the Done button.

Bloatware and Conclusions Of the 16GB of internal storage, 11.42GB is available to users out of the box. The bloatware load appears pretty heavy at first, but thankfully many of the apps are just links to download the app to your phone. You can't completely remove the icons, but you can hide them away and disable them so they don't sit around in your app drawer. These include apps like TripAdvisor, eBay, Messaging+, NextRadio, and CBS Sports. Sprint apps like Sprint Zone, Sprint Music Plus, Sprint TV & Movies, and the Lumen Toolbar are pre-loaded and not removable.

The iPhone is so over - the future is Android. Everyone knows the best apps are going to be coming out on Samsung's Galaxy S4. The phone is so cool that if you had wanted to see Jay-Z and Kanye West at this year's SXSW you would have needed one (or a similar Samsung device) to get in.

Apps have all sorts of functionality. Some make your device operate more efficiently, like the Floating Notifications Android app for the Samsung Galaxy S4. Other awesome apps exist to make your day more enjoyable. Take a few minutes out of your day to play Android app games like Real Boxing or Modern Combat 4: Zero Hour.

Pressing the Home button fires up the Galaxy S4's default screen, which displays the time and date, allows you to perform a Google Search, includes icons for the Paper Artist, Instagram, Photo Wizard, Video Editor, Camera, and Gallery apps, plus Dropbox, Play Store and a further Apps icon which accesses all the default apps and the Widgets screen.

Having the ability to connect to a wi-fi network or cellular data if using a SIM card, then edit your images and video with either the Samsung apps, Instagram or any one of hundreds of other Android apps, and then upload them to your favourite online network quickly becomes compulsive and makes the traditional process of downloading to a computer seem laborious and old-fashioned.

It's crazy to think that in just a few months the Galaxy S4 has started to look a little long in the tooth, but with so much competition it's true. While it hasn't quite been the runaway success Samsung hoped it would be it is still one of the best-selling flagship phones on the market and a worth successor to the mighty Galaxy S3.Read more at -galaxy-s4_Mobile-Phone_review#WHuvtYIzIIBgcbS1.99Read the full review

Liked the Galaxy Note 2? The Galaxy S4 has basically all of the same features, including floating touch, side-by-side multitasking options and tons more. The phone even has an "Easy Mode" for the user who can't handle the flood of features; the mode transforms the phone into something even a child could use, with a simple dialer, shortcuts to a few common apps and huge icons.

To try and make up for this, Samsung is going a different route. Apps can now be moved to the external SD card natively, a feature that Google itself abandoned back in Android 4.1. This should make a few users happy, though it's far from a perfect solution - high I/O apps rarely do well when moved to the SD card, and I doubt some of the chunky Samsung apps will be eligible for the shift.

Note: This will reset the preferences for disabled apps, disabled app notifications, default applications for actions, and background data restrictions for apps. You will not lose any app data. 041b061a72
