    Default Note 3: What are people actually using the S Pen for?

    I've had my Note 3 since it came out and love it but haven't really used the S Pen much. What are people who use it actually using it for? Any suggested apps?

    I am just now starting to use it. It's easy to take a screen shot and for some reason using swipe is just awesome. The ability to write on a screen shot comes in handy sometimes

    I use it to draw. I bought the Intuos tablet last week and it doesn't come close to my Note 3 and S-pen. Powerful tool.

    Evernote just released an update and now I'm using the S-pen with it too. Love it!

    No need to download an app, it's built into the phone. Open up air command and select screen write.

    Aha! Thank you, I just got my Note 3 a few days ago and was generally uninterested with the S pen functions (upgraded from a GS3 for the added screen real estate).

    To get to those hard to reach boogies.....


    Lets see, I've used them to take down last minute notes, when i'm on the phone and the person on the other end wants to give me some information, and I also have a handwriting app that converts my handwriting to text.

    What is the advantage of Papyrus over the Action Memo and S Note that comes with the Note 3?

    Writing on screen shots, sketching, taking quick notes, drop down menus on Web pages. I've been using it more and more lately.

    My wife uses the S Pen for gaming, especially Candy Crush, Hayday, Farm Rescue Saga, and Pet Rescue. She likes the precision the S Pen brings. I use the S Pen for mainly S Notes and Action Memo.

    I'm wondering about this too. I've heard Papyrus is great, but requires a lot of iap to make it really useful. Is that the case and if so, is it better than the Samsung apps we have for the Note 3, and why is that the case please?

    I used the S Pen a lot with the Note 2 and it's even better with the 3. I use it for quick notes all the time. It's great when I'm on a conference call and need to jot something down. I do screen shots and circle and note things for later or to send to a client.

    I also use it anytime I just want that precision you can't get without the S Pen. It's great when on the Internet. The more I use it the more I appreciate it.

    When I had it I rarely used it especially not the way Samsung wanted you to use it.

    I used it to help me while driving, it's mounted and basically used the S-Pen to help me be more accurate and reach. LOL
