    So I have downloaded a few apps for my gear 2 (eBay, CNN, flashlight, calculator, map my run etc...) My favorite so far is the instant settings app which controls some of the drop down functions on the phone like wifi, sound, data, etc... I use it all the time to turn my ringer off. It's so simple yet helpful. What about you guys?

    For native apps, I like WatchON Remote the best.

    Does your map my run app show you your distance/data on the watch? Mine will start the phone app for a run but doesn't show me any info on the watch itself.

    I also love the "instant settings" app! However I would really like to see if they could add info for watch battery and the phone's battery info, that could be a really handy feature.
    Also i would love to see a quick settings shortcut (When i go to bed with the watch on, i always disable the screen wake up function, so it can only be activated by pressing the button) Would be very cool to see a feature that worked a little bit like "Tasker".

    I'm being dumb. Where are you searching for these apps? Samsung apps or Google play?

    You need to go into Gear Manager, then select Samsung Apps to find apps for the Gear. It doesn't show anything if you search Samsung Apps outside of the Gear Manager.

    I am unable to access Samsung apps through my Gear Manager. This is only since this morning when my Phone automatically installed the new update. Not sure what to do. I click on My Apps, it works, I click on settings, it works, I click Samsung apps, nothing???

    Okay, found out I had disabled Samsung apps, but now that it is enabled, from gear manager, I click Samsung apps, it brings me to the regular Samsung apps app, nothing specific for the gear though, am I doing something wrong here? if I search instant settings, I find nothing either. It's like my gear manager is going to the regular Samsung app and not one that would indicate I am trying to find gear apps, same thing is happening if I go to my camera and click downloads under mode.
