South Korea's leading tech giant Samsung Electronics Co. said Friday it has renovated its application store as "Galaxy Apps" to provide users with a wider choice for customization of mobile devices.
The version is an update from the company's previous "Samsung Apps" store and offers hundreds of apps exclusively available to users of Samsung Galaxy smart devices. Samsung said the new app store will be available to 130 million users in 161 countries.
"At Samsung, we continuously strive to create value for our customers by providing differentiated solutions and services coupled with innovative devices," said Hong Won-pyo, who heads Samsung's Media Solution Center.
"Samsung Galaxy Apps is an extension of that promise, as it offers our customers exclusive apps to enrich their experience," Hong said.
Samsung said the new application store will provide users with intuitive interface. The main page is divided into three categories -- Best Picks, Top and For Galaxy -- where users can find Galaxy-only apps including Samsung Contents Viewer and Samsung Wallet. (Yonhap)
