Samsung did not hold back when they decided to bundle great software suites onto the Galaxy Note. While most of the apps have been seen before on Androids such as the Galaxy S II, many are unique to the Galaxy Note. The best apps included are the email, Video Maker, AllShare, Readers Hub, Social Hub, Mini Diary, Polaris Office, and of course S Planner and S Memo. Using the S Pen provides a distinctive enhancement to many of the apps and utilities on the Galaxy Note. The Wacom technology allows pressure sensitive drawing styles that mimic using an actual writing utensil by drawing light and dark lines.
