Samsung Hub – does anyone use it?

samsungappsLast night I was settling in for the evening when my phone asked me if I wanted to update Samsung Hub. I said “oh alright then” and accepted the update.

Then I thought “Samsung Hub?? I’ve never used it!”. Looking at it it’s just another shop. Thinking about it I did notice Samsung Hub when setting up a new Samsung Galaxy (I’m on my umpteenth inc replacements for faulty USB ports, “water damage” and other miscellaeneous manufacturing faults.

At the time I discounted it – I don’t need any more sources of apps or means of spending money online. In fact I’m happy to be proved wrong but I doubt that Samsung Hub offers anything that other online stores have.

So why use it?

Answers on a metaphoric postcard, magic carpet or any other means of entering into a discussion on this most unimportant of subjects.

PS I note from the screenshot it wasn’t last night it was 05.21 am. Must have been asleep – I do these things on autopilot. Bit worrying innit?

  1. Hey Tref 🙂

    I don’t have a Samsung phone, but I did spend an interesting hour browsing through the ‘Smart Hub’ on my Samsung telly – a very entertaining array of incomprehensible Korean apps including the simply marvellous ‘Toss Stick’:

    I have no idea what is going on.

    Also, the ‘Sign in with Twitter’ on your blog seems to be broken:
    “Whoa there! There is no request token for this page….”
