Samsung adds more S-Pen friendly apps for British Galaxy Note 10.1 users


Samsung's gifting British Galaxy Note 10.1 users with some new, free, S-Pen apps for when playing "Eat up Martha" in S-Note stops being fun. Drop the Beat lets you produce your own banging dance tracks, while kiddy-titles Spot the Difference and Where Is It will keep your younglings quiet for five minutes. You'll also get Sonic The Hedgehog 4: Episode 2 and Need for Speed: Hot Pursuit, although we're not sure how you'll replicate that Fast and Furious action with a four-point-five-inch plastic pencil.

Samsung inspires people to get creative with the S-Pen

London UK, 23rd August 2012 – Samsung today announced a variety of new content for its brand new Galaxy Note 10.1, which was launched at a star-studded bash in London on Wednesday 15th August. The content includes software, games and apps – all of which are designed to make the most of the innovative S-Pen.

Simon Stanford, Vice President, Telecommunications and Networks, Samsung UK and Ireland said: "We're delighted to be able to introduce such a variety of apps so soon after the fantastic launch of the Galaxy Note 10.1 and can't wait to hear what our customers think of it. The S-Pen is so precise it's inspired a whole host of new apps and we believe it will change the way people use tablet devices. For example, the S-Pen makes it easy to edit photos with incredible accuracy on the device's large 10.1 inch screen using the embedded software, Adobe® Photoshop® Touch."

The Galaxy Note 10.1 comes with a range of software and games embedded and a selection of apps to download, with over 100,000 free downloads available in Samsung apps.
