Samsung introduces S Note beta to the Play Store


Back in mid-May, Samsung shared its S Note app with the wider Android community over at the Play Store. Those wielding a compatible device have since been able to download and test out the note-taker, which was previously only available on Sammy's own fleet of handsets. Like many of the company's popular utilities, S Note is the subject of constant updates and adjustments, and if you're the kind of user that likes to test out upcoming features early, you might wish to jump on S Note's new beta option. 

Interested parties can now enrol themselves in the beta by a link provided below. Once you arrive at the beta signup page, process is a simple one-click operation. As you can see in the screenshot above, it also forewarns that bugs and instabilities are likely to be prevalent, such is the territory that comes with being a regular beta fiend.

Provided the public version S Note app is installed, the beta update is then subsequently applied, though Samsung suggests that this can take up to a few hours in some cases. As for features, the changelog mentions a new Folder View, Trash and tweaked style for testers to get to grips with. 

If you do hop aboard the Beta bus, let us know what you find via the comments.

I never used their Note S before because its proprietary to their handset. If they release to the common Android handsets then I would use it. I don't think it will serve me well to get my data struck into one vendor. Be it that I might have 3 Samsung devices currently at hand.

Quite frankly, without the S-Pen the app is mediocre. I am trying it now on my Galaxy S6 Edge Plus and it is underwhelming.

All their S-apps should be on Play store.

Even if they are on the Play Store doesn't mean your phone can download it. Samsung has to open their software up to non-Galaxy phone.

I am using Remix OS for PC on my DELL 7140 that support a pressure sensitive stylus. Yes, the pressure sensitive is working verified with my Autodesk SketchBook Pro app. Having access to S Note outside of Samsung Note would make me be more willing to park my data there. The speed of Remix OS demostrated that Android on Intel core M is addictive. So much so that its my go to OS over Win 8.1

Even site like PA can't slow it down.
