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.

The Note 4 never had the fastest Recents Menu, and despite its 3GB of RAM, its app-holding capabilities only got worse on Lollipop. The infamous RAM bug that plagued the S6 is indeed an annoyance on the Note 4's 5.0.X ROMs. Rumors of an update to fix all of this were confirmed with the first reports of the 5.1.1 update for the Russian Note 4, which seemingly improved the Recents Menu and RAM management. But it'll be a long time...
