samsung-galaxy-note-3I did this a while ago sharing the apps that I had on my Nokia Lumia 928 Windows Phone (phone provided to me by Windows Phone Team), but I also carry a Samsung Note 3 smartphone (phone provided to me by Samsung) and so I thought I would share what apps are currently installed on it as well for those of you who are Android users.

These are the apps installed, but that does not necessarily mean I use them. It means I found them interesting enough to download, but sometimes I am slow to actually try them out.

    This is one of my favorite word puzzle games. I have the app on every device it is available for actually.

    This is a Samsung specific app that lets you do things like write a phone number with the S Pen (stylus) and then it reads it and adds it to your contacts magically. Does a bunch of other really cool things too.

Goodness gracious! You have an app for almost everything :) Somehow this isnt surprising! I remember when you went to New York you mentioned you or someone was looking for a clean bathroom and there was an app for it!

This stresses me out a little, because there are so many apps I want to explore, and I never seem to take advantage of everything that’s out there. I particularly want to look for productivity apps and (free) entertainment apps. I appreciate your help in sharing this!

OMG! That is A LOT of apps…to me. I just have an old-fashioned flip phone. LOL! Hubby has an iPhone and has at least this many apps on it if not more. I just got a new iPad Air last weekend to replace my nightmare experience with the Kindle Fire HD. UGH! SO wanted that to work out but just not in the cards I guess. Anyway, my iPad has maybe 10 apps on it and I am done. LOL
