Get this: Samsung launched an application earlier this week called “My Galaxy” that helps you find accessories for your phone, shows you movies and concerts that are around you, teaches you how to use your phone properly, and according to >Android Central, it’s even pretty. It works on the S2, S3, S4, the first and second Note, and even the S3 mini. There’s just one problem: It’s UK only.
Now why would Samsung spend the money to launch an app that helps them make even more money and lock it down to just one country? One obvious answer is localization support. Finding nearby venues and selling you accessories directly to consumers is going to be a process that has to go through entirely different systems in a different country, so maybe this app will simple be used as a template and be passed around Samsung’s many regional offices?
All I know is that right now, when you buy a Galaxy phone, there’s nothing really on it to make you want to buy another Galaxy phone when your contract is up or you want to upgrade to a newer and better device. Sure, you might buy another Samsung because you’re comfortable with TouchWiz and don’t want to learn Sense, but there aren’t really any Samsung services that keep you attached.
My Galaxy could have been that, but the way it is now … not really.
