    Default New owner, 2 odd probs

    I just setup the gg yesterday paired with my note 3. My first problem is that I do not receive any notifications other than missed calls. I have the 'notifications' in settings switched on. Problem 2 is that the Samsung app store does not seem to have available all of the apps it should have, such as snapchat micro. Any ideas?

    Select notifications/more notifications?" Under the heading of more notifications is a host of other applications that will allow you to receive notifications.

    I don't use Snapchat, but I do know it was once there. They must have removed it because I do not see it listed under any of the categories anymore.

    I'm not sure why it would not be showing, but I am showing Snap chat under Social Networking.

    That is so strange. It's not showing up for me?

    I've had every notification checked (except weather). I do, however, use Gmail instead of the generic 'email' and I use handscent instead of the stock text app. Do I need to download Gmail, hangout, Facebook, handscent, etc in order to get notifications? If so, where can I download those to the gg?

    @ Brandon. It is my understanding that if you want notifications on the Gear then the app must be installed on the phone.

    I would suggest installing Gmail, Facebook and any other app you desire to receive notifications for.

    Also, are you using any type of password protection app?

    If so, these apps sometimes interfere with how the GG is designed to work.

    How do you install apps that aren't in the Samsung market? (Gmail, hangout, etc)

    I use the stock screen lock but I assume that's not what you're referring to.

    @Brandon. I believe the Gmail app is in the Google Play Store.

    Do you not have the Gmail app installed on the phone?

    Notifications seemed to randomly start working. Any ideas on the no snap chat?

    Does anyone with a note 3 have it?
