The only possible way to download it now is through XDA forum.

Google 'Easter Egg'.

For those of us on Jelly Bean.
Goto Settings/About Device.
Tap repeatedly on 'Android version 4.1.1' and you get a picture of a red jelly bean. Press down on the jelly bean for a couple of seconds and you get a game where you flick the jelly beans off of the screen. Silly, but fun!

Android apps are cheap compared to PC program and most you can try before you buy. So if you like it so mush why can't you give the small donation the programer is asking for?

I have the s3 since 4 months now and i like it alot. I upgraded from galaxy s1 the s3 comes with a better camera and much better graphics but when i use it for a long time it gets overheated and the battery drains fast i will try to replace it in a week or two also im experiencing some lag issues when playing games such as fifa 12 but overall is a good phone

Why dont folk pay up and buy software developers spends hours coding so why not reward them??

If you can afford these expensive smartfones you can afford to buy apps..I have over 65GBP of paid apps on Android and fair amount on IOS..

Cant stand when all folk want is free games and steal them when they only cost a few quid..It must cost to trawl through google and download the file in data costs.PAY UP..

I own an iphone 4s, the best apple product ever...and I recently got an S3 and I have to say I'm proud to have the best of both worlds!

To be honest, I was sort of blown away by the "freeness" feel of the s3, the power of multi-tasking, and the breath-taking super-amoled screen!

To new s3 owners, here are some of the tweaks and free downloads I recommend:

#Launcher
Go Launcher - even the free version rocks! allows you to change your home and drawer interface...resize icons, change icon row and column settings, screen transitions and animations, etc.

#Live Wallpapers
Just go to Playstore and type live wallpapers and download to your hearts content! Recommended samples: koipond, fire free, icecream sandwich WP, Jellybean WP, Fireworks, etc.

#Fingerprint Scan to Unlock

#Games
Temple Run
Nova 3
Need for speed
Ashphalt
YouNinja
Fruit Ninja
Tetris
Sims 3
Many more

#Apps
Fat Booth
Zombie Booth
Ghost Booth
Flaslight
Dictionary
Thesaurus
Adobe Viewer
Flipboard
Many more...

To more experienced Android users...any tips and cool free apps you can recommend? Thanks! :D
