Samsung hasn't added as many of its stock apps to the Play Store as Motorola, Sony, or HTC have, but it still uses Google's platform to distribute a few things. The new version of WatchON has been added to the Play Store for the Galaxy S5 (might also be available on the Note 3 Neo in some regions). This version of WatchON has a different look than older versions, and fits in nicely with Samsung's new design aesthetic.
Getting too invested in a new Twitter client can be risky these days. There's always the possibility that it won't be updated with the features you want, or bugs might not get squashed to your liking. It may also be awesome and run through its 100k Twitter tokens before being abandoned. Well, Fenix for Twitter might be at least worth taking a risk on. This new app seems to get a lot of things right, and it's only a 1.0 release.
So you think you're too cool for selfies? Well, NASA's Curiosity rover traveled millions of miles and landed on Mars with a rocket sled, and it has taken a selfie or two. Having established the huge importance of selfies, you're probably chomping at the bit to take some, so why not use the new camera app Frontback? You can probably guess what it does from the name.
The stock Google Calendar app gets the job done, sure, but don't you ever want something a little more powerful? Today Calendar is out of beta today, so maybe it's your next stop. This app is based on the AOSP calendar, but developer Jack Underwood made a lot of tweaks in the name of improving the look and features.
Most apps, excluding the free ones, cost you money. Few work to save you money. As it turns out, Automatic is that type of app. This little piece of software serves as a driving assistant that's less concerned about where you're going and more focused on how you get there. It keeps track of how you drive, alerting if you're accelerating (or braking) too hard, speeding, or engaging in other shenanigans that come back to bite you at the pump.
Samsung makes absolutely anything and everything that can fit inside a home. Whether it's the TV showing the big game, the refrigerator chilling the beer, the computer keeping track of everyone's fantasy rosters, the phone you silenced so no one can nag, or the washing machine needed to get that nacho cheese stain out, Sammy's got you covered. Now the Korean conglomerate has dropped an app in the Play Store for controlling many of its appliances from a single location, along with the requisite plugins to make it happen.
Always forgetting your phone? Well, you should probably pay more attention. Failing that, maybe get one of those Bluetooth tethers that can warn you when you're about to leave the phone behind. HTC makes one of those called the Fetch, and now there's an app in Google Play so more devices can get in on the fun.
