There should always be a twinge of excitement when you see the ‘an update is available’ message on your device. This hopefully means there is something new coming to your device and not just one of those system enhancements or firmware updates that take us time to do but do not really give anything to us.
All updates should have something exiting in them. Some game changers have been released in the form of a small update file that is applied to either the operating system or an application. The Apple App store for instance was released through an update to the already hugely popular iTunes software and it was instrumental in the success of the iPhone and then the iPad.
Samsung are rolling out a 357mb file, as an update to the Galaxy S4 and inside there is actually something exciting. A new App called ‘apps to SD’ and it does exactly what it says it does. It allows you to copy Apps from the Galaxy S4 to an installed Micro SD card. So if you, like many people, have a lot of Apps as well as a lot of other files on your device and maybe the speed is suffering as a result, you can move the Apps to the SD card and free up space on your device. For some users this could be an extremely useful addition,
The other updates contained in the file are the addition of he well named, Samsung Knox security software and a locked boot loader. There are also new options and settings for transparency and legibility.
So the update gives something for your effort and is available now as an over the air update with Sprint and AT&T and via the Samsung Kies desktop App for Verizon customers.
