2- 1 Tap Quick Bar

https://play.google.com/store/apps/d...staller.onetap

3- Launch-X

https://play.google.com/store/apps/d...d.launchx.free

4- Link Bubble

https://play.google.com/store/apps/d...bble.playstore

5- Power Line

https://play.google.com/store/apps/d...android.inline

6- Real Player

Always I have approached applications with the "what is the goal" altitude. Defining done, the search is more efficiently accomplished.

I agree, there are so many to choose from, it would be easy to get lost.

Here are my recommended apps. I'd post links but as a new user I'm not allowed to. Oh well.

Infinite Painter
This is the best painting/drawing app I've used so far. The ability to rotate the canvas on-the-fly while you're drawing is especially useful. The paint-blending is surprisingly realistic. It looks like painting with an actual brush. The interaction with the s-pen is perfect.

QuickPic
It's essentially a superior replacement for the default picture gallery app. A problem I had with android's photo gallery was that it included all the folders on my overfull sd-card, which made looking for pictures extremely frustrating. QuickPic lets you exclude folders (or even your entire sd-card). Also it's free and ADFREE.

MX Player
A versatile video player. It can display subtitles.

AnyMemo
If you're looking for a flash-card app, you can't go wrong here.

I'll update my list as needed.

I uss as well the Quick Pic app. Love that one, so much better than stock.

I tried MX Player, seemed descent enough, but I prefer Real Player.

Infinite Painter is the only other drawing app I have kept other than CloverPaint. I have tried many. sketchbook pro, layerpaint, art flow, photoshop touch, fresco paint and probably others i cant recall.
I find infinite painter is the closest to replicating real media, but CloverPaint has more functionality than any other android art programme and is starting to approach desktop aplications type levels with the (admitidly expensive) extension add on

CloverPaint, huh. I haven't even heard of that one. I'll check it out. Thanks.

It's not the most intuitive. But once you have figured it out it makes sense.

I wasn't too big on QuickPic, but I really like F-Stop. Never been a fan of the stock gallery. Actually my favorite replacement gallery was installed when I installed a Lenovo Camera apk on my Note 3, called SEEit gallery, but never bothered to test it on my Note 8.

I wish I could draw, then I would use one of these. However, I seem to have no drawing skills.
