Samsung has added a large handful of apps to the Galaxy S II to make it stand out from the pack. Be sure you jump back to see our tour of TouchWiz 4.0, which touches every aspect of the operating system.



There are several hubs that Samsung has added to the Galaxy S II: Reader (to allow you to access magazine, book, and magazine content), Games (for suggestions on high quality games), Music (for Samsung’s iTunes-like for-pay music service), and Social (to help aggregate all social networking accounts in one place). Beyond the hubs, we get a file explorer, a fantastic voice command application powered by Vlingo, a photo and video editor, an FM radio app, Polaris Office to help manage documents, and even a Samsung app store, which has a very limited selection.

There’s also a really cool Kies Air application that lets you remotely manage your phone from a browser as long as you are over the same network. Kies Air is like a local version of HTCSense.com.
