What is Paper Artist?

DID YOU KNOW: Updato offers seamless and guaranteed phone unlocking for any device, carrier and region! It's quick and easy - try it now.

Paper artist in an app that was originally developed for Galaxy Note II. It is an image editor that gives you access to edit images, add effects, stylize them and so on. If you use the app on Galaxy Note 2, you can use the S Pen to color parts of the image. Paper Artist is simply the best image editor app out there that you can install on your Android device. There doesn’t seem to be any other app that’s better in Play Store.

Thanks to Xda member tmantanner4 it is now possible to install Paper Artist on Galaxy S3 and apparently on any other device that is running Android 4.1 Jelly Bean. Porting apps from one phone to another is something that has been practiced in the Android world for a while, because its just not fair to have an amazing app only on one device right?

    Is this a joke? Just got the software update on my gs3, automatically Installed this app and I can’t get rid of it. I’ll never use this! I’m not in sixth grade, I have no interest in fingerpainting on my phone. If I wanted paper artist I would have gone and found it in the play store just like anyone with an android device would do.

    • Might help

      Go to the Apps on your phone. Left click on the bottom button. A window will pop up. Click uninstall and choose the one you want to get rid of I haven’t used it on this particular feature, but it worked on an annoying game.

      Agree – just got the update and have no idea why this was forced – prefer to select apps as need arises vs. bloatware.

  • confused

    How do you get rid of something you accidentally saved? Cute app but I won’t use it every day.

  • Bluespicker

    I have a phone and do not want all this junk on it. It should be MY CHOICE and I now have three apps I do not want and I cannot get rid of. This is my phone! apps: Caller Name ID; Flipboard; and paper artist are not wanted. I want these gone and now. I paid for the phone, I pay for the service and if you can’t get rid of these easily, perhaps there are legal remedies.

    How can I restore the defaults. I accidentally select “always’ in reference to what to open when I want to use stored pics. I don’t want only my Gallery, I also want to restore to use my DropBox. Galaxy S3 4.1.2

  • Lambie

    I agree with bluespicker — I DO NOT WANT these three apps, yet I cannot delete them. WTF?? Bloatware indeed. Doesn’t anyone have any suggestions for getting rid of this crap? What could be a legal remedy? Shame on Samsung and/or Verizon — whoever’s responsible for this ridiculous imposition.

  • sam sgu

  • click the up coming web page

    My coder is trying to persuade me to move to .net from PHP. I have always disliked the idea because of the expenses. But he’s tryiong none the less. I’ve been using Movable-type on a number of websites for about a year and am nervous about switching to another platform. I have heard excellent things about blogengine.net. Is there a way I can import all my wordpress content into it? Any help would be really appreciated!|
