Samsung’s S Note now in beta mode at Google Play, Samsung calls for testers

Samsung is no stranger to releasing proprietary apps over at the Google Play Store. Over the last year, the company has brought apps such as S Health, Wi-Fi Transfer, Samsung Music, Samsung Voice Recording, and even the Galaxy Note’s most cherished application, S Note, to Google’s app store for the larger Android user base. The goal has been not only to get non-Galaxy Android users to interact with Samsung’s software and give feedback, but to make it easier to update these apps when the time comes.

S Note was released to the wider Android community back in May, but the app is now back in beta mode due to a new update that, apparently, looks to bring some significant changes. To prepare the S Note update for primetime, Samsung is now looking to enroll beta testers who will give feedback and respond to changes that will make S Note more appealing to Android users at large.

Now, before you happily tap the Play Store app and prepare to sign up for the S Note beta testing program, understand that Samsung has said the S Note beta app will have bugs. This means that there are things that may and may not work correctly, but your job as a beta tester is to give good constructive feedback. Some consumers are not early adopters because they prefer a smooth experience over a “buggy” one, but I happen to think it fun to be part of the “ironing” process.

You should have the S Note application installed from the Play Store, and, upon enrolling, should receive the new beta update (though it could take up to a few hours, at worst, to receive it). If you’re not afraid of diving in, head on over to the Play Store and prepare for your S Note beta app. When you finish signing up, come back here and let us know you did, and give us some first impressions on how you like the S Note beta experience if it’s made its way to your device yet).

What’s the point when it says it’s not compatible with my Note 7?

Folder view is back!! I’ve been using S Note since the days of the Note 10.1 the 2012 edition one and always liked the way I could organise my school notes in folders. Glad Samsung brought this back, that’s the only noticeable change for me.

Just installed on Note 4 in Holland.
Some nice features like importing pdf and scribble on it.
Even scrolling the page works.
The overview of notes now have the creation date and time on it.
You can also use add-ons from the galaxy store like graphs, idea scratch and there is a note widget.
Looks nice
Ofcourse it is possible that some features were there already because haven’t looked at the settings for a while
