Sprint version of the Samsung Galaxy S III gets update to add Multi-View, Paper Artist and security fix
Multi-View is a multitasker's dream

Multi-View is a multitasker's dream

If you are the proud owner of the Sprint version of the Samsung Galaxy S III, an update has been sent out that adds some new features to the device. The update is coming OTA, so you should be on the lookout for it, or you can reach into the settings of your phone and try to pull it out manually. The update brings Multi-View to the phone. This is the application that allows users to split the screen on the phone in half, so that two different apps can run at the same time. In other words, it is a multitasker's delight.

Another feature added to the phone with this update is Paper Artist. This allows you to take an ordinary photograph and turn it into a paper sketch and then edit it using the S Pen. The finished picture can be shared via your social networks, via email or by SMS message.

The update also brings enhancements to the camera and improves the ability to send bulk SMS messages. The new software version is L710VPBMD4 and it includes a security fix for the home screen that you probably didn't even realize was needed.

So should Apple and Google not launch streaming music apps since we already have Pandora, Spotify, Slacker, and LastFM? There are already similar apps for every app that currently out, right? How is this any different other than being native to the device?

So does the inclusion of Paper Artist mean that the S3 will also support the S Pen?

Hey Alan, since this is a sprint related article I figured I should spread the news that my sprint MOTOROLA PHOTON Q just received a wifi update to android 4.1.2 jellybean.

Maybe you guys could check up on this to see if sprint is updating everyone else too.

Thanks

No. S-Pen is a hardware-dependent accessory. The phone has to have an active digitizer built into the screen (which the GSIII and GSIV don't but which the Note and Note II do)
