The updates are being pushed over the wire via the Kies update software beginning today, with the Samsung Galaxy S II Skyrocket and Galaxy Note being the first devices in AT&T’s current Galaxy lineup to be updated to Ice Cream Sandwich. Currently these are the only Galaxy smartphones on AT&T receiving the Ice Cream Sandwich with no immediate word on when the long promised update will arrive for the Samsung Captivate Glide.
The ICS update for the Galaxy Note also adds additional improvements not found on other models in the Premium Suite update bundled with the Galaxy Note ICS update, such as updated versions of the S Note app and revised S Memo apps along with the addition of a new app known as My Story, which will allow for the creation of digital greeting cards. Below, the complete details on the Galaxy Note ICS update.
Premium Suite Enhancements
This collection of apps is designed specifically for the S Pen™ and has new features that will improve your Galaxy Note experience and productivity.
S-Note Productivity Tool
- Formula Match: Features math formula recognition and auto calculation. Write a formula or math equation and Note will convert it into an easy-to-read text version. You can even look up different equations and answers via WolframAlpha.com. Looking for the answer or what your equation looks like as a line graph? Press the Search (question mark) button.
- Shape Match: Provides automatic shape correction. Draw a rough sketch of a triangle and Note converts it to a clean, clear triangle. Color in your shapes using the S Pen tool.
