Samsung Galaxy Note 3: Seven apps you should download right now

Maze Racer (£Free)

Designed specifically for the Galaxy Note range, this simple game tasks you with drawing a line from the start to the finish of a series of mazes in the fastest time possible. Touch an edge and you’re whizzed back to the beginning. After each level you’re given a mark out of three stars, dependent on your speed: can you get three stars in all 46 stages?

Netflix (£Free)

Netflix is a no-brainer, basically. For a few pounds a month, you can watch a dazzling variety of TV shows and a (slightly less dazzling) selection of movies on any compatible device you own. There aren’t many smartphones as well-equipped for the on-demand video service as the Note 3, so fill your boots!

Monkey Write: Learn Chinese (£Free)

Winner of Samsung’s first Galaxy Note app challenge, Monkey Write uses the phablet’s abilities to help you learn a new language – or at least the letters that make it up. Each Chinese character is learnt through you writing it on the Note 3’s screen using the S-Pen, with every stroke numbered for ease. Once you’re feeling more confident, you can turn off the number guides and see how you fare unaided.
