My New Gadget Companion and 4 Must Have Apps | #Samsung Galaxy Note 10.1 | #vzwbuzz

My New Gadget Companion | #Samsung Galaxy Note 10.1 | #vzwbuzz

As a member of the #VzwBuzz influencer team, I received the Samsung Galaxy Note 3 with line of service from Verizon. No additional compensation was provided nor did I promise positive feedback. All opinions are my own.


I have been sharing my unfaltering adoration of the Samsung Galaxy Note 3 with you for months now. It’s so much more than a phone to me. It’s my virtual assistant keeping me on track, keeps me connected, helps me document memories of my family, allows me to bank from home and so much more.

I was beyond excited to open my newest goody box from Verizon Wireless. I was greeted with a shiny new Samsung Galaxy Note 10.1 tablet complete with the Verizon Network. My Note 3’s BIG BROTHER!

I was already excited that it was a tablet, but having it connected to the Verizon Network put it over the top for me.

Setting up a new device is always fun for me. Since I’m downloading and personalizing this new tablet, I thought I would share four of the must have apps that I always install first for any Android Device.

Verizon Messages

This app is for phones on the Verizon network. Those who have one and an Android tablet can install this app to work with the phone’s text messages on the tablet.

Once installed on the tablet all text messages sent to the Verizon phone will instantly appear on the tablet, too. They can be viewed in a threaded conversation on the tablet and replies can be sent. The sender of the text message has no idea the response is not from the user’s phone.
