This useful app won first prize in the S Pen category of Samsung's 2012 Smart App Challenge. Designed for students or anyone that ever has to sit through a lecture or interview, S-PEN Voice PRO lets you write using the S Pen while recording audio via the Note 3's microphone.

Notes and their accompanying audio clips can be labelled or shared. A simple but effective idea, S-PEN Voice PRO is a must-have if you have ever scribbled down a note, only to forget about the context.

9. MX Player

(or £3.70 for the Pro version – here)

Samsung ships the GALAXY Note 3 with an excellent video player, but if you download a lot of unusual video formats – or just want to try an alternative – then MX Player is one of the best around.

MX Player can take advantage of the Note 3's Quad-Core processor to boost performance, ensuring smooth playback of even highly-compressed formats like Matroska (.MKV) files. It has an intuitive gesture-based interface that makes it easy for you to zoom in and out, skip forward and back and adjust volume and brightness levels.

10. Evernote

Free – Get it here

For the first time, Samsung has tightly integrated its S Note app with the pre-installed and popular notebook app, Evernote. Notes and clippings made with the S Pen can be instantly synced with your Evernote account. GALAXY Note 3 owners will also get a boost in the amount of data they are allowed to sync every month to allow them to get the most from the service.

The Evernote app on the Note 3 can be used to further manipulate and file your notes and makes it easy to share your ideas with other devices or across the web.
