    Why???? Just WHY???? I cannot believe someone thought that color combo was a good idea. If I wanted a color combo I'd buy the Spen of my choice.

    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

    Yeah, it makes it more annoying when you have just one other colour choice, but me, I do like the combination.

    Made it into BestBuy today, but the two Note 9's they had to look at were both in "Retail Mode", so if wouldn't let me install anything. Didn't have enough time to stop in VZW - last year their N8's were not in retail mode, so I got to try to install, which didn't work. But I think that I screwed something up that day trying tho.

    (Side note, the blue looks like the blue of my N5 to me. The lavender actually doesn't look as pink as photos make it look, maybe because it's more metallic/chrome looking?, but still too girly for me. Tho I would have loved dark purple.)
    I installed several launchers and apps on the retail model at my BB... wanted to see if Action Launcher worked for Pixel-like -- it does. I wouldn't let me sideload the apk for Action memo.

    Well it didn't long last year for someone to get s-note/ action memo working for the note 8. Hopefully the same for this year. Keep our fingers crossed.

    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:

    I'm going to keep using it until it's not supported. Hope that doesn't happen.

    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 just finished installing. Used the same version as with the Notes 7 & 8 - 5.2.04.25. Seems to be working as it should (still no PhotoNote or EasyChart).

    I don't see the error you're getting. Maybe try this version when you can.

    Thanks for this handy reference. I just downloaded the S-Note compilation on both my Notes 8 and 9. Works like a charm!

    Are you using a third party launcher? I use Nova and the pin feature never worked unless using TouchWiz.

    Have any of you had this problem yet when using Action Memo on the Note 9? The Action Memo part of S Note will freeze if you use any of the "Link to Action" options. The action (i.e., call, text, email, contacts, etc.) will initiate and pretty much work, but the open Action Memo will disappear. It won't be saved. If it was new, it will just be gone, and if you edited it, it will not save the changes.

    This also happens if you are writing an Action Memo and you touch somewhere other than the memo. It should shrink down to a small movable square, but 9 out of 10 times it disappears, either not saved at all if new, or unmodified if previously saved. Same thing happens when scheduling a reminder and you choose a custom date/time vs a preset 1 hr, 6 hrs, 1 day, etc.

    If you're NOT having this problem, and you're using different versions than the ones linked to in the original XDA topic, could your please share which versions you are using? Thanks!

    This installed ok but when I open s note and try to open a older action memo it freezes up. Not sure why. It works for a short time then freezes. Any one else have this issue? Any work around this?

    I never used S-Notes to its full functionality before Samsung monkeyed with it but I did sideload it onto the Note 8 and played with it, however I never relied on it. But I did like knowing if I had to jot down a quick phone number, or address (especially address) I could link to maps. Or add a contact. This version of S-Notes on the Note 9 is definitely not working as well as it did on the Note 8. I get the yellow icon about action memo in my notifications area and have to force close the app via the settings/app menu to get it to go away. I can't seem to open an existing action memo at all. I can create a new one but the overall functionality is wonky enough that I think I may just give up on it. I really don't understand why Samsung took away some of this functionality. I'm not a power user of the S Pen but would have probably become one if I felt like there was a benefit. Right now I'm not really seeing it in terms of power use. I do love it for selections and writing on screen shots and things like that.

    By the way, I see no archive option in Samsung Notes or S-Note. Is it not possible to archive notes I might want to retain but don't necessarily want to see?

    You have the option to sync notes with your Samsung account.

    I haven't yet moved over my older notes & memos. Wanted to wait til I knew everything was working ok. So not, but I think I'll try copying them over later today and see what happens. (So not happy that Action Memo is acting so screwy )
