I did not change anything else, and I have approx 20 apps just in the Entertainment section alone. Multiwatch is there, along with a bunch more.

**Disclaimer, I am not responsible if you jack anything up messing with your build prop info**

Do the apps actually work when loaded?

Absolutely- there's a Biorhythm app in there that I assume will only work for the newer Gears with heart rate sensors, but all others work fine.

I downloaded a buildprop editor app, busybox, and then was able to change the model name to the Note 2 model name referenced in my previous comment. I rebooted an voila, more apps. I downloaded the ones I wanted and switched it back to the Note 3. All good.

So either my device being a GG1, being from the U.S. where Tizen isn't even released yet, or the UK ROM potentially being a victim of app release timing, are probably affecting what's offered in Samsung Apps. Hopefully more apps will be exposed or available soon. Moving the GG1 to Tizen adds several hundred thousand users so maybe that'll entice developer's. Time will tell.

With a Note 3 on verizon, I see NO samsung apps.
