In case you didn’t know, Galaxy Gifts is a bundle of applications (apps) and services offered to select devices from Samsung’s Galaxy line. Samsung has recently outlined which apps and services would be given for free to buyers of the new Samsung Galaxy Note 4 and Samsung Galaxy Note Edge devices, and we’ll go through them here.
There are four categories of apps and services: Productivity, Entertainment, News and Reading, plus, Lifestyle and others. In the Productivity category you will receive 50 GB of Dropbox storage for 2 years, a full 6-month subscription to Parallels Access which allows you remote access to your 5 favorite desktop apps, a full version of SketchBook, Hancom Office, a 6-month subscription of Pocket Premium, ArtRage and a 6-month subscription to RealPlayer Cloud. Next up is the Entertainment category which will entitle you to a 3-month subscription to OnLive, 100% Games for access to Gameloft games, Diddeo and AmpliTube which unlocks all amps and settings.
Under News and Reading you will receive a 3-month subscription to Audible which allows for listening to books on tape, a 12-week subscription to the NYTimes, 1-year subscription to Bloomberg Businessweek+, a 6-month subscription to The Wall Street Journal and Kindle for Samsung which will give you one free ebook every month. Finally, Lifestyle and others will include a 3-month subscription to Magisto, a designated Samsung PayPal on-line page for exclusive offers, 6-months to Life360, CameraAce, Perfect365, 6-months of Workout Trainer Pro and “special features” on TripAdvisor for Samsung users, although no features were disclosed.
Please keep in mind that none of these come pre-installed on either phablet device so you will need to secure these gifts by downloading them from Samsung’s own app store. There are quite a few, great, subscriptions included for free, so don’t miss out! Galaxy Note Edge buyers will also be eligible to receive these gifts alongside consumers hoping to grab Samsung’s Galaxy Note 4.
The Galaxy Note 4 has already been released in certain markets but will launch in the US on October 17th. The Galaxy Note Edge still does not have a very clear release date for the US, however, Samsung has confirmed a Japanese launch slated for October inching us closer and closer to a US release date.
