When word first slipped out about Samsung’s Premium Suite for the Galaxy Note, there was some initial confusion over just what the company was planning, and if the Premium Suite might be another Value Pack like the Galaxy S got in lieu of Ice Cream Sandwich. Of course, that didn’t sound too plausible, given the Note’s hardware capabilities, and sure enough, we later learned that the Premium Suite was a collection of S-Pen-optimized apps that Samsung would be delivering to the Note alongside its full-on ICS update. We’ve seen leaks of Note ICS beta ROMs, but what we looked at was missing the Premium Suite. As we await the official release of ICS for the Note, Samsung has released a video to show-off the features of some of these new apps.
The Premium Suite will include an updated version of S Memo, which shipped with the Note, along with S Note and My Story. Samsung’s new video gives a feature overview of all these apps, and there are some that really look interesting. S Note, for instance, will make your quickly jotted-down diagrams look professional with shape recognition; draw a rough square or arrow, and the app will replace those elements with clean vector art. There are also tons of customizations available, setting notebook covers and paper options to suit your taste. Beyond that, there’s My Story, which provides templates and tools for quickly constructing e-cards to send to friends and relatives.
