For all if you developers who are eager to start writing apps for Samsung Galaxy Note 3 and the breakthrough wearable device Samsung Galaxy Gear, get ready for work. The Korean manufacturer has posted officially the open source files for both newly released devices. The kernel source is all developers need to begin developing and adding applications of their choice for the Galaxy Note 3 and Galaxy Gear. The open source for the phablet is for the models of Galaxy Note 3 launched by T-Mobile SM-N900T. The other device is SM-N900W8 and its kernel source was posted in the same day when the phablet was officially released.
Developers will enjoy the news that Samsung has provided a firmware for Samsung Galaxy Note 3. Now they can take advantage for free from the kernel source and the firmware and begin developing applications, especially created for the device. The abundance of native applications is a significant advantage for the modern devices today in all fields in the mobile world. This is especially important for new devices like the Samsung Galaxy Gear (or the Google Glass for example). The work of developers is more than welcome to add up to the library of the applications available for users. The smartwatch runs on a modified Android OS version. This means that every next update will evoke more kernel posts for the smartwatch for developers to enjoy.
Each app enriches the appeal of the device, so the more the better!
