Samsung Notes crosses a billion installs on the Google Play Store


Last updated: May 23rd, 2021 at 20:03 UTC+01:00

The Samsung Notes app is one of the best apps developed in-house by Samsung for Galaxy smartphones and tablets, and it has now reached an impressive milestone on the Google Play Store. Samsung Notes recently crossed a billion installs (spotted by folks over at Android Police) on Android’s default app store, joining a couple of other Samsung apps that have achieved this feat, including Samsung Internet, Samsung Email, and Samsung Voice Recorder.

A billion installs, many more notes?

Despite being an important part of Samsung’s proprietary app lineup, Samsung Notes doesn’t come pre-installed on every Galaxy device. That’s because Notes is designed around the S Pen that you used to get exclusively on Galaxy Note devices and some tablets before Samsung brought support for its stylus to the Galaxy S series phones with the Galaxy S21 Ultra.

However, you can use it to make text notes, and there are plenty of other excellent features, like being able to import PDF files and write on them or adding voice notes that sync to your drawings and notations. All those features are now at the disposal of more than a billion Galaxy users, or at least a billion devices as that is what ultimately counts (some users have multiple devices, and an install on each of them counts towards Google Play’s total installs figure).

If you haven’t tried Samsung Notes out yet, well, you can fix that now by grabbing it from the Play Store or the Galaxy Store. You can also download the app from our APK archive.
