    Just found out about this on Android Central. If you point your browser to samsungapps.com, you'll be able to download the Samsung Apps to your phone. Apparently this is pre-installed on some flavors of the S3 but not on some, if not all, US carriers.

    I just downloaded the full versions of Angry Birds Space and Smart Office 2 for free. Pretty, pretty, pretty good! :smokingsomb:

    i wasn't sure if it was compatible and did some research. Not only is compatible but there are a video and a photo editing program for the GS3 that were not pre-installed. We can all speculate as to why.

    How can you tell its the full version of Angry Birds?

    I noticed you can download a free version and a paid version on the play store, excuse me sounding stupid but on iOS the free version icon says free to make it simple to understand what version you have.

    Just downloaded the app, installed update, but when I click on the store app it just locks up at the loading screen. Made sure I didn't get the tablet version, didn't see the S3 listed for download. Hmmm.

    Deleted app and reinstalled, now things seem to be working fine.

    Smart Office 2 looks like a winner. That's a $10 app on the Play store!!!

    No it is not. From what I have seen S Suggest just opens up the Play store when you click on a suggestion in it. Samsung Apps is like a separate app store exclusive to Samsung products. It appears to offer several paid apps for free.

    Thank You! I'll download it but I don't see it supporting the GS3. ;(

    Not to sound picky but you have to be registered with Samsung just for those who don't know. Registration only takes a few minutes and it's worth it for free apps.

    If you visit the site on a PC you will see that the GS III is supported.

    Did you go to Security and enable apps from outside market?

    Yes I did as it wouldn't let me install. Not sure how big of a deal it is to have this enabled.

    I typically leave it disabled and only enable it as needed.

    BTW I see angry birds space is free on the market. But there is a premium version and the one for samsung seems to be the same not the premium.

    Do I need to download the Samsung app first before downloading the Smart Office and other free apps?

    I download the samsung app apk file from my phone's browser, when I tried to install it, it said "There is a problem parsing the package." I already have the checked to allow unknown sources to be install. Any idea how to solve this?
    Thanks.

    Yes you have to download it first and then open it. It will install the app. But make sure you have unknown sources ticked in settings > security or you will not be able to install.

    I have since uninstalled samsung app as the office 2 kept crashing on me and locking up my phone. (may just be me) but you can get all these apps on google play. Angry birds space is not the premium and same as are many of the other apps. But if your really need office its one avenue to take to save $10....

    Where do I get this app? I am sure I had already pre-installed before I flashed the stock firmware. It's not there anymore, though.

    I played a few levels and I haven't seen any ads yet...

    Open Office 2 makes the whole thing worth it, but has anyone run into any other decent apps yet?

    It seems like all the Apps listed under All Services may have been developed for Samsung.

    I didn't have the Samsung Apps app on my phone when I got it either. I downloaded from my PC and installed it, but it says because of my phone or my country, I have limited functions. Basically I can update the phone, there's no apps. I tried to download it on the web browser on my phone after reading this thread, but it downloads a file called downloadfile.bin that's only 171kb. Is there something I'm doing wrong here? I've been at this for I don't know how many hours now, and see the same posts on all the forums where people can't get this app to work properly. PLEASE HELP!!!!

    It's just another App Store, no big deal. Who is your service provider?
