Give a Samsung Galaxy Note for Mother’s Day! {giveaway}

Have you seen the commercials for the Samsung Galaxy Note? If so, you are already aware of the awesome power of the Galaxy Note! If not, learn about the device below.

The S Pen

The S Pen offers the precision of a stylus with the added features of its built-in Wacom technology. While a stylus simply points, the S Pen also features 256 levels of pressure sensitivity, as well as the useful S Pen button on the side.

Samsung has released the software development kit (SDK) for the S Pen, so developers can take advantage of its unique features to enhance their apps. In addition, the Galaxy Note comes preloaded with some great apps and features that take advantage of the S Pen.

S Memo Lite

No matter what you’re doing on the Galaxy Note, you can always use the S Pen to quickly take notes.

  1. Remove the S Pen from the Galaxy Note. Hold the button on the S Pen and tap the screen twice.
  2. The S Memo lite app will appear.
  3. You can draw directly on the paper in S Memo lite. The default pen is a simple, black stroke.
  4. Tap on the pen icon at the top to change pen styles. You can choose from a pen, paint brush, pencil, or highlighter. You can also change the thickness and color of your line, and the transparency of the highlighter.
  5. If you want to undo your drawing, tap the left-facing arrow at the top to move back a step. If you want to erase, choose the eraser icon up top.
  6. When you save a memo from S Memo lite, it is stored in the S Memo app, which you can find in the Applications menu.

S Memo

S Memo is a more full-featured version of S Memo lite. It has all the features of the lite version, with a few additions.

  • Store multiple memos. The main S Memo screen shows all the memos that you have saved, and you can start a new drawing memo or typed memo from this screen.
  • Share memos. You can share your work via Twitter, Facebook, or any other service you have loaded onto the Galaxy Note. You can also email your memos using Gmail or your preferred Email service.

Annotation and screen shots

The Galaxy Note lets you add your own ideas to anything you see. You can write personal notes on photos or Web pages, add comments to documents, or even send along a screenshot from your favorite game with a handwritten message.

  1. Hold the button on the S Pen, then hold the S Pen to the Galaxy Note screen.
  2. The screen will briefly flash white, letting you know it has taken a screen shot.
  3. The image editor will open automatically.
  4. From the image editor, you have all the same drawing tools that you’ll find in S Memo.
  5. You can also crop the part of the image you want to keep. Select the crop tool from the top, then draw a lasso around the piece you like. Then tap “Done,” and everything else disappears.
  6. Images are saved to the clipboard. You can paste images into memos, emails, or documents the same way you copy and paste text.
