I just purchase a Samsung Galaxy Watch 4 classic because the battery on my Gear S3 wasn't holding a charge and I couldn't find a service center that would replace it. I had so many nice apps on my Gear S3: games for the grandchildren, a multi timer kitchen timer widget, app launcher widgets, multiple alarm widgets. Where is the nice stuff for the Galaxy Watch 4? Lots of stuff if all I want to do is keep fit, but absolutely nothing else I want. I really wanted to be excited about a new watch, but I miss my Gear S3!
Solved! Go to Solution.
I have looked in the galaxy store, and google play. Even done a google search for galaxy 4 apps to see what's available. I'm not impressed. I can't find any replacements for what I liked on my Gear S3. I've seen the recommendations for the best apps on the Galaxy 4. I'm sure lots of people like the suggestions; I don't. Instagram? I don't use it. Spotify? If I listened to music besides the playlist on my iPod, I'd listen on my phone which has much better sound quality than a watch.
It's a watch. I want nice juicy apps that do what a watch does, like the multi timer widget I had on my Gear 3 that allowed me to set an alarm for the boiling pasta at the same time as an alarm for the cookies in the oven. I'd like to be able to have more than 1 alarm widget (aka Tile), for the few daily alarms I set. And the kids used to sit on my lap and play games on my watch. It's true that they're 11 years old now and they have their own phones, but they still like to grab my arm and sneak in a game of tic tac toe, rolling hams, fruit slice.
I know where to look for apps. I'm not looking for technical help. I'm griping about the paucity of good stuff available for my new shiny watch!
