    SNote is in the Galaxy App Store.
    Sort of...

    The versions of S Note in the Google Play store and the Galaxy App store do not include Action Memo, one of the most feature rich parts of S Note.

    The version in the threads linked to in the beginning of this topic is 5.2.04.25, the last version to include it. And even with that, it's mostle inaccessible. However, someone made an app that simply opens a new Action Memo, using S Note.

    I would be fine with Samsung Notes if they implemented S Note capabilities (not just some of them). I want to be able to do things like add picture on picture and write/draw where ever I want. Samsung Notes takes you to a separate drawing sections if you want to draw and adding pictures creates a picture scrolling thing. S Notes also had templates (although they were better in earlier versions).
    EXACTLY I miss this so much.

    Something I have discovered is a way to mimic double tapping the S Pen on the screen (while holding the button in) to open a new Action Memo.

    It would be nice if Samsung could tweak the UI and bring a revamped S Note for the 10th anniversary. IMHO the current UI look is getting old. Give us new icons or something.

    I just downloaded an older version of S-Note and the Action Memo shortcut and it works -- UNLESS you disable the notification that "S Memo is running"... then you have to reboot and it will work again from the pen menu (shortcut for Action Memo) -- I don't remember what the "picture note" is, but the features I remember from Note 2-3-4-5 are working...
    I'm constantly getting that notification yet the action memo disappears without being pinned on the screen, and I have to force close S note to regain access to action memo. How do I fix this?? Just want the pinned action memo to stay on the screen instead of disappearing and causing this error. Thanks!

    This photo alone says a lot of what S Note CAN do and what Samsung Notes CAN'T do.
    S Note-screenshot_20180915-112531_s-note.jpg

    Samsung Notes CAN'T:

    -Change background

    -Change font size

    -Rotate text

    -Highlight text

    -Mix pen and text

    -Bring objects to front/send to back

    -Let you be creative

    Follow the link to XDA in this post, for the correct version of S Note as well as the Extension Pack. There is also a link at the end of the post for an Action Memo shortcut.

    But isn't S-Note still acting up? I've kind of stayed away from it because I spend more time trying to figure out how to get it to work "normal" than using it. I have it installed per the instructions in this thread...version and all. Why Samsung...WHY?

    Has anyone been able to figure out how to get the action memo to successfully pin to the home screen? it's the only thing not working correctly with S- Note on my 9. It worked fine on my Note 8

    But isn't S-Note still acting up...
    Yep It works and it doesn't. For example, if I open a Memo, write some info, schedule a reminder (as long as it's a pre-chosen one & not a custom time!!) and save the Memo, all is well. However, if before saving it I touch the screen anywhere off the Memo, it goes poof and S Note freezes and I have to force stop. There are issues with many of the Link to Action choices. They mostly work (e.g., dialing a number, adding a contact, sending an email, etc.) but S Note still freezes and the Action Memo usually disappears.

    ... Why Samsung...WHY?
    There's gotta be a way to contact DJ Koh. If we start a petition? Or hell, just link him to all the sh*t reviews on Samsung Notes in the Google Play Store, and on S Note itself when they first removed Action Memo. At the N9 unpacked event, I remember him saying something about listening to the Note users. Pretty sure he came into the picture the same year as the N7. Don't think that's a coincidence :/

    Some of Action Memo is working, but definitely quirky. I wish Samsung would come to their damn senses! And in the mean time that someone at XDA performs their usual magic and comes up with a workaround.

    I hope someone from Samsung reads this.

    Dear Samsung,

    You've listened to your customers regarding things such as bringing back the SD card, fingerprint reader placement and increased battery size. PLEASE bring bring back S-Note or at the very least, bring S-Note features to Samsung Notes.

    Sincerely,
    A Galaxy Note Fan
    I was told to write it directly to them in their site, which I did and also has friends and family do as well. Also, you can move S Note files into Samsung Notes if you want to. I haven’t because I dud sideload the original S Note. Also you can get Photo Note working in landscape mode on the Note 8, just not in portrait and still no idea on how to get Easy Chart installed. I keep trying.

    Looks like the previous method for installing S Note/Action Memo still works. I couldn't find anything for the Note 9 on XDA, but someone in reddit posted that it still works:

    https://www.reddit.com/r/GalaxyNote9...e_old_school_s

    https://forum.xda-developers.com/gal...ack-s-t3673174
    Right, it still works. Like I said, the only thing that doesn’t is Easy Chart. The issue isn’t the phone is the OS version. Nougat worked flawlessly, Oreo messed some of it up, will Pie mess it up completely? I really hope not. I can’t understand how Samsung doesn’t get it with all the comments posted in the Play Store, Galaxy Apps, their Website, and all of the others. However, I was told they only see it if you type it in their site directly to them, not even as a review on their apps. I still don’t get how they can miss it, when it’s everywhere. Ironically, I know people complain about not get the updates quick enough. That’s the one thing I don’t care about. Generally Samsung has all of the features already and if not all, most. Pie might be great, my main concern is that it messes up S Note, especially if it messes it up entirely. I just don’t get it! They have the best utility app out and they got rid of it for something inferior. Instead they could of just made it better and I really feel it would’ve given then even more of a competitive advantage. There’s a conversation that I was having with someone on XDA. He personally thought it was about 97% there. He had some great ideas that consisted of change the name to S Suite, have it be compatible with all of Office programs, and many other things that I can’t remember. Our conversation was awhile ago, but if you want to read it, it should be in the same place as mentioned above. He really had some great ideas to make it probably the best device to be used for Work or School (it probably already is, but with the original S Note by itself/with his suggestions it would be amazing). I think Samsung could even charge for it and I think people wouldn’t even bat an eye(that’s how good these changes were). Actually it just dawned on me, while I really don’t want to pay extra for anything, which I’m sure none of you do either, ALL of these companies are looking to make more and more. Apple is nickel and diming us so bad with their new phones, so I’m sure Samsung wouldn’t have an issue doing it to. I’m tired of the time and effort it took for me to get all of this installed and then when Oreo came to try and get it all done again (which I came close). I wouldn’t have an issue paying a nominal fee for all of the functionality it had (just to advoid the headache) and if they made it compatible with Office and put other features that could be used for professional or educational maybe even pay more. They keep trying with Dex, I would think this app would go hand and hand with helping to be more productive.

    Sorry for going on a bit to long, but I’m just really annoyed and don’t want them to ruin the line going forward. We will at least get an idea when Pie comes out for 8 + 9. Maybe we will get lucky and Easy Chart could potentially work with it, even though I doubt it.

    Bottom line, I was told to get as money people to write Samsung directly on their site.

    That’s the version I used as well. With the other version mentioned, don’t you still have to install the extension pack in order to get some of features. Also, Sandra you can get Photo Note in landscape with a few tweaks to the way you installed it.

    Do you have any of the issues we've mentioned with S Note having to be force stopped if you use many of the "Link to Action" functions, or custom scheduling a reminder? Or touching elsewhere in the screen while writing an Action Memo? I had no issues on the N7 or N8 (tho I'm STILL avoiding Oreo on the N8!).

    Do you have a link to anywhere on Samsung's site where we can post any of this? I'd love to get the word out so all the people complaining here, on XDA, in both app stores' reviews, can all tell them how sh!tty Samsung Notes is, and how many of us want S Note, in its entirety back. And hell yess, I'd pay! S Note is a good percentage of why I've stuck with the Note line all along, both phones & tablets.
