Samsung Galaxy Note 3 Apps on the Galaxy S 4

The Samsung Galaxy S 4 and the Galaxy Note 3 are the Korean OEM’s two flagship smartphones in their respective market segments. Both devices are more than capable of handling just about anything you can throw at them, and they both pack enough software features to keep you reading manuals for days. Despite their similarities, however, the Note 3 packs a few tricks up its sleeve that its less gargantuan sibling lacks.

Thankfully, XDA Senior Member LastStandingDroid has gotten the Note 3-specific apps from the Note’s BMI7 firmware to work on the smaller sibling. Included are the My Files app, Bloomberg+ (complete with Air Gestures), Gallery (though not everything works perfectly), ActiveApplicationWidget, the Note 3 Wallpaper Chooser, the Samsung Alarm Widget, Samsung Wallet, MMS, and more. Keep in mind that for some of these apps, you will need to be running the leaked 4.3 build for the S4 before proceeding.

For those looking to pick and choose which apps to install, XDA Senior Member ktetreault14 then built on LastStandingDroid’s offerings by packaging the goods with AROMA installer. Using AROMA, you can select which of these applications that you’d like to install, rather than being forced to use them all.

Head on over to the original thread to supercharge your Galaxy S 4’s software. And if you’d like to get your hands on a version that can be customized with the AROMA installer, make your way to this post.

Samsung Galaxy S6 To Receive Major Camera Update

When the Samsung Galaxy S6 and S6 Edge were launched, they became the prime focus for all discussions as Samsung took a break on their traditional design philosophy and opted for something that their flagship lineup hadn't seen before. But along with the design, a lot of Android enthusiasts were also impressed by another aspect of the flagship duo: their camera. Even traditionally, the primary camera on Samsung's flagship lineup has been one of its stronger points as compared to other...

Tactile: An Addicting Game with Beautiful Material Design

The game industry has been around for decades, catering to a wide spectrum of people, young gamers and elder ones, casual gamers and serious ones, and for an industry with such specifications, innovation isn't the only fuel for success. An increasingly large number of games draw inspiration from another and build on top of that idea, and Tactile is one such product, an excellently executed brainchild of a mashup between Tetris and 2048. For 2048 veterans, the game will come across as relatively familiar....

Android’s Consistency and The User Experience

This is a site of power users, and it is fair to say that most of us are more knowledgeable about Android than the average Joe. We tinker and tweak by customizing every corner for endless hours, until we arrive at a comfortable software configuration. In contrast, a large chunk of Android users don’t even use a different launcher - and many don’t know what a launcher is in the first place!   When we get so involved in our...
