Having a well-stocked app store is one of the necessary requirements for a platform to succeed and it is no different with Samsung's Galaxy Gear smartwatch; 12 apps are coming to the timepiece soon and overall more than 70 apps will be made available for the watch. A published report on Thursday listed the dozen apps that are on the way and many should be familiar to smartphone owners...

Snapping creeper shots could turn out to be pretty fun. And the way the camera is designed and the way you take the shot is pretty shnazy !

It's just a watch. I don't see how it can really have that many apps.

Apple already had thousands of apps for its "smartphone". But, it wasn't called a smartphone.

Apple will catch the next boat, just like Samsung did with their flagship smartphones.

Samsung jumped the gun with their boxy, predictable smartwatch.

This watch is fully compatible with Note 3 and barely compatible with S4 or any other android device. Samsung is just trolling you with this junk.

Although I would agree but I just read this morning that The watch will be compatible with the S4 and Note2 by October.

The only reason it is currently only compatible with the Note 3 is because the Note 3 is their only device with 4.3. Once the S4, Note 2, & S3 are upgraded, they will be compatible also.

Why do you need 4.3 for it to work. It is the same framework. Photosphere work on 4.1 with the right apk.
20. g2a5b0e (Posts: 3025; Member since: 08 Jun 2012)
I don't know the why of it. Probably has something to do with the fact that the watch runs 4.3 also.
