Paper Artist from Galaxy Note 2 on Any Jelly Bean Device
The Samsung Galaxy Note 2 is one of the most successful current generation Samsung devices. As with the original Galaxy Note, Samsung ships the Note 2 with a few additional apps that are exclusive to the device. Or are they? Not anymore, if the XDA community has a say in it. Just the way the resizable popup video player from the original Galaxy Note was ported to the Galaxy S II, the Paper Artist app from the Note 2 has been ported to work on other devices, thanks to XDA Forum Member tmantanner4.
While it was originally ported for the Galaxy S III, it has worked perfectly fine in our testing on both Galaxy Nexus and Nexus S running Jelly Bean. The app features some killer paper-themed effects that you can add to your photos in one tap. In addition, you can draw on the photo with your finger or a stylus.
Head over to the forum thread, grab the app, sideload it to your phone, and unleash the paper artist inside you.
