Galaxy Note 7’s powerful new Notes app will soon be released for other Note handsets

Samsung Notes is a new app that has been introduced with the Galaxy Note 7. It consolidates Samsung’s multiple note-taking applications and makes doodling and note-taking easier than ever before. The drawing experience has been significantly improved as well with new drawing tools enabling users to fully unleash their capabilities.

In previous Note handsets the note-taking functions were divided into separate apps like Scrapbook, S Note, Action Memo and Memo. All of that changes with the Galaxy Note 7 which has the single, all-in-one S Pen app called Samsung Notes. It combines the functions of all of these applications allowing users to easily create, edit and manage their S Pen creations and text notes from one location.

Existing content from S Note and Memo can be imported into Samsung Notes. The app offers optimized text input options and has support for check boxes, font colors and numbering. Seven type of specialized drawing tools are included as well. It’s even possible to merge multiple kinds of content into a single note so one document can contain both a drawing and a voice note. The app is capable of automatically detecting the type of content and it then adjusts the size accordingly on the grid interface of the home screen.

Samsung Notes app is currently available only on the Galaxy Note 7 but Samsung promises that the app is going to be available for download on other Galaxy Note handsets soon.

I actually prefer the original iteration of S-Note, which came with the Note 4. It had allot of excellent features plus you could drag down a notepad to preview whats on the first page of the Notepad rather than opening the whole pad to checkout whats on it.

Unfortunately Samsung has weakened this app. It’s a much less powerful note taking app now.

To be specific, the functionality that has changed/been removed is the “link to action” feature where you could scrawl a name and phone number quickly (on the off screen or in action memo) and then later select and convert that writing to a contact or even place a phone call. It made you more efficient because you could write once and then take action on that writing – the hallmark of what the S pen should do.

I much prefer the Note software on my Note 5, than my Note 7. Way better imo. They left out key features, for no reason. They also flattened the UI even more. Something I have no idea why they keep doing. Why can’t the UI be fancy, expressive, when there is plenty of horsepower to show of cool UI graphics. The models of the pens and brushes are more boring than ever on the Note 7.

Sometimes change is not good. 1 step forward, 2 steps back.

Many pieces of he old S Notes are left out of the new Notes. There is no Action Memo in the new Notes app for example. Samsung has agreed to “fix” this by reinstating it in a month or so, but really I am surprised that the article didn’t mention this.

“Powerful notes app” LMAO

No Thanks, I am good with my S Note.
The app does not even have 1/10 the features of S Note

If the Note 4 will be getting this, can’t we get the theme store too?

Nice move. Release the new AOD features for the s7 (edge) as well please 🙂

Seriously? And if they give you theme store you’ll probably be demanding the highly innovative “blue collar” next. Some “software innovations” must remain exclusive to some useless phones to make them look worthy, and of course to make you want to pay for them. Especially the blue collar which is much more cutting edge and innovative than say CPUs and RAMs.

That’s one of the first features I disabled on my Note 7. It’s not that useful and just drains the already weak battery.

Downloaded from apkmirror,working well on my note 4,it is better than previous s note apk

The software sucks. Its a downgrade of what we can do previously on the beloved Snotes/action memo/scrapbook. Most of the user rate it 1 star in playstore due to its stupid nature.

It is available for selected phones on the Play Store. But the ratings are telling an awful story, contrary to this post.

Link to google play?

I don’t know if I can post links here. All you need to do is search the PlayStore for “Samsung Notes”. Both my Note 4 and Note 10.1 (2014) are listed incompatible, though.

I already have it on my Note5. You can get the apk on apk mirror.

I seem to remember being able to do most of this, and more, on the original Galaxy Note. One thing still missing is the ability to enter mathematical notation. Maybe we need to wait for the Note 8 for it to become that good again?
