    Love it. Will be grabbing that app when I get a note 2. I wonder if it translates to Chinese.

    Very nice!

    Is it still beta? Can't find it in the Play Store...

    Edit: I missed the whole point of it being on-board the device. :banghead:

    I have had similar apps on my iphone and generally found them useful.

    Can I get the app on the Note 1??

    Ok so I got my note but I have no idea how to enable this feature. If this is part of the device where do you access it?

    According to the video, the app is in the Samsung App store. I couldn't find it using my S3, so it's likely device specific.

    Just checked on the play store and can't find the app. I assume not available on American store...hopefully yet.

    Samsung Apps generally isn't available in the American versions of android devices. If you have an international version, it should come with Samsung Apps, and you should be able to create an account. But if for some reason, your samsung account password is associated with an american Galaxy phone you've purchased before, you will need to log out and re-create another samsung apps account using your galaxy note 2. The registration requires that you meet the registration requirements of the country where the phone originated. I don't think the UK or China has any crazy restrictions so it should be ok, but if you happen to have bought a korean galaxy note 2, you have to register for a Korean account, and since you don't have a Korean ID number, you will not be able to register. thus, you cannot use samsung apps.

    Well that appears to be another plus for going with the international version over a carrier customized us version.

    What I did was go onto my pc, look up photo reader on google to access the app page on play store and hit install and have it sent to my phone, and my phone automatically started downloading. Didn't sign in with an account at all

    I have searched the Play store but I couldn't find the app. I can only find it in the Samsung Apps store. I am afraid it doesn't seem to be available anywhere else.

    I can't find it in the Samsung App Store, searched under foto reader and photo reader. That guys link on YouTube doesn't work for me either. I guess you must create an account with the right device to even see the app.

    Perhaps, however it didn't appear for me initially but yesterday it was there. I don't know what's going on but Samsung needs to either gets its stuff together or stop bundling their own app store.
    The web version says that the app isn't available in my country and I have on my phone. Its plain old craziness!!!

    Yes that link took me to the app, thanks.

    Odd thing, under devices there appears to be nothing listed.

    Ill look in kies, I didnt think of that before.

    Since I have connected the device to kies before the website knew I had a note 2. Should work.

    Now that you showed me what I was looking for I also found this.

    https://play.google.com/store/apps/d....app.ocr&hl=en

    Says it isn't compatible with my note 1. Note 2 on the way though.

    Gave it a try and the thing looks to be actually pretty useful, some neat features in it like the dictionary, read links and translate.
