The Samsung Galaxy Pro is a fantastic QWERTY based Android smartphone; however, this form factor when clubbed with its bare-bones software adds up to the fact that it requires some carefully selected apps to get the best out of it. So here are ten free apps that will help you do just that.
With an 800MHz processor alongside a low-res 2.8-inch screen, the Samsung Galaxy Pro is not exactly what you may call a high-end smartphone. But the good news is that with its awesome physical QWERTY keyboard it does seem like an excellent BlackBerry alternative for the money-conscious businessman (or text and Twitter-mad Android fanatic). These apps will make up for Samsung Galaxy Pro’s strengths and help minimize its weaknesses. I would recommend this for any phone except for the Samsung Galaxy Pro because it is especially important. Let’s get started on the applications now that are going to make your Samsung Galaxy Pro a dream.
Samsung Galaxy Pro
It is the same ethical old principle here. As they say, don’t stress your eyes and waste your time loading up web pages when it is the Samsung Galaxy Pro. All you need to do is install Google Reader and then have it feed stories from all the sites that you love to one optimized location.
TweetDeck: Then comes the TweetDeck. Like you know, the default provision for Twitter on the Samsung Galaxy Pro is not significant, which is not such a good thing given the fact that it’s fine qwerty means that it is potentially the best tweeting tools available in the market. So before you do anything else get out there and download TweetDeck. It is one of the best ‘social browser’ tools that is there on the Android Market, and also all your Twitter updates will be smooth.
Are you tied in with the first two apps still? I know browsing the Samsung Galaxy Pro does need the weight taking off its core web browsing experience, but I also know that Google Goggles is an excellent alternative search method. Just point the phone’s camera at an object or barcode and see what relevant links Google can come up with, which includes purchase locations as well as price comparisons.
Now keep in mind, just because the Samsung Galaxy Pro has a small screen alongside a modest processor, please don’t think that you would not be able to enjoy games on it. It puts together a lot of simple-yet-fun flash games that will run nicely on this compact QWERTY.
Its 3-megapixel camera is not the best, so one will need to work a little harder to produce okay snaps. I would suggest, in this situation, FxCamera, which allows one to apply stylish filters to one’s pictures like vintage polaroid or the ToyCam effects. Not only does it cover over a multitude of photographic sins but it also lends something different to one’s photos as well.
Finally comes the Google Docs. It allows you to see, edit as well as share documents with others, storing them online at all times possible.
