Samsung’s Galaxy Fold 2 is a modern-age marvel. It has the most powerful hardware seen to date on a smartphone and a screen that rivals even some of the best-performing laptops and tablets.
One of the best things about having such a powerful screen is that it makes playing games on your phone so much better. Watching videos or using apps becomes an immersive experience, but it doesn’t stop there.
We’ve compiled a list of apps for your Galaxy Fold 2 that will take full advantage of its impressive display and make sure you have all your needs covered.
Best Apps For Galaxy Fold 2
While the official Twitter app is fine for many, there are a lot of problems that you might have if you use it on a regular basis. From promoted tweets to an interface that isn’t customizable, there’s a lot missing from Twitter’s app. Talon for Twitter solves many of those issues, as just about every aspect of the app can be customized and tweaked to your liking. There are several different layout options to take advantage of your screen real estate, along with changing up the general theme and more.

Infinity for Reddit
We would say that you could argue that the official Reddit client is better than what Twitter has done, but it still leaves a lot to be desired. But unlike Twitter, Reddit doesn’t actually limit the important APIs, which is why we are recommending Infinity for Reddit. When you have a display the size of the Galaxy Z Fold 3, you want an app that can take full advantage of it. Infinity can do just that with its dual-pane layout, that can also be customized and changed around to meet your wants and needs.

Finding the best to-do app is already an annoying task as it is, but Todoist makes it a little bit easier. The app is highly-customizable, and just recently went through a design overhaul. But it still takes full advantage of the larger display on your Galaxy Z Fold 3, giving you access to a sidebar and main area where your to-do lists live. Todoist is largely considered one of the best task management apps, and is well worth the $3 per month for Premium.
Outlook Best Galaxy Z Fold 3 Apps
There was a long period of time where nobody wanted to touch Outlook with a 10-foot pole. Those days are behind us now, as Microsoft has put a lot of work into making Outlook a great email client. From managing your calendar to handling your inboxes, Outlook is one of the best email apps available. Thanks to Samsung and Microsoft working together on the foldable form-factor, this app also looks great on the Fold 3, along with any of your other Android devices.

Duet – Do more.
From time-to-time, you might find yourself wanting to have just a little bit of extra screen real estate. Whether you’re working from a laptop or at a desktop with a larger monitor, extending your screen can really help you get some work done. With Duet Display, you can install the app on your Fold 3, and turn it into an extra display for your computer. The app can occasionally be a bit finicky to use, but when it works, it’s absolutely wonderful.

Going back to task management, Notion is like a to-do app on steroids. The interface itself remains the same, but you can create different pages complete with different templates and configurations. If you want to use a KanBan-style task management system, or create a shared budget with a partner, you can do that and so much more with Notion.
Spotify Best Galaxy Z Fold 3 Apps
Adding Spotify to the list may seem like a pretty obvious choice, as it’s one of the most popular music streaming services available. But instead of trying to just stretch out the interface we see on slab phones, Spotify on the Galaxy Z Fold 3 offers a sidebar complete with a mini music controller in the bottom left corner. Then, you can browse different playlists, artists, and podcasts from the right side of the screen.
Aside from being a productivity machine, the Galaxy Z Fold 3 is also an incredible reading device. When reading using the Fold 3, you’ll enjoy a larger display compared to a traditional Kindle, along with being able to actually adjust the hinge to make it feel like you’re reading an actual book. Amazon has also included many great features to customize the look and feel of the Kindle app so you won’t harm your eyes when you get caught up in a book for a few hours (or longer).

Since the Galaxy Z Fold 3 is the first foldable phone with stylus support, you’ll definitely want to try out this functionality at some point. With PENUP, you can flex your artistic muscles a bit and start with a blank canvas to create your masterpiece. But PENUP also offers the ability to color along with acting as a tutor of sorts as you can follow various videos to learn how to hone your craft.
Clip Studio Paint
Clip Studio Paint – Drawing & Painting app –
There are a lot of drawing apps out there, but not all of them support the ability to use the pressure sensitivity offered when using an S Pen. Clip Studio Paint fits the bill, as it’s not only compatible with the S Pen on the Galaxy Z Fold 3, but also supports DeX Mode when using your phone with a Wacom One tablet.

Infinite Painter on Google Play
Infinite Painter is one of the most robust sketching/drawing apps on the Play Store. It’s available for free with your Google Play Pass subscription, and offers more than 160 brush presets, the ability to create new brushes, and a customizable interface. Then, you can export your work into any format that you may want, including Photoshop’s PSD layers.

- Google Duo + Samsung Notes
If you’re looking for a reliable and easy-to-use video calling app, Google Duo is preloaded on your Z Fold3 and connects with your existing Google account. Of course, you can use any videoconferencing tool of your choice. But before you start your video call, consider also opening Samsung Notes from the Edge Panel.

You can position Samsung Notes in the lower half of your workspace by tapping the three dots at the center of the screen, followed by the circular arrows. Google Duo (or your preferred videoconference tool) should be at the top of the screen. Flex the phone and you’re ready to video chat and take notes. This pairing works even better when you add a foldable-compatible S Pen, which allows you to take notes by hand and convert your writing to text — instantly — among many other S Pen benefits on the Z Fold3.
- Microsoft Outlook + PowerPoint
As you compile a sales deck or report, you might find yourself pulling text and images from your inbox — and refreshing every few minutes for incoming pieces. You can use Multi-Active Windows to work between Outlook on the left side of your screen and a PowerPoint presentation on the right, both optimized for the foldable tablet form factor. Remember, your Z Fold3 also has drag and drop functionality, so you can easily move images and large blocks of text using your finger or the optional S Pen.

- Microsoft PowerPoint + Samsung Gallery
Creating a presentation from photos you took on your phone? The Z Fold3 gives you an express lane to add these photos to your slides. Microsoft PowerPoint and Samsung Gallery work well together — split vertically or horizontally, whichever you prefer. When you’re done building your deck, proofread your presentation in full screen by sliding the center bar between the two apps in the direction you want PowerPoint to fill.
- Samsung Notes + Social Media (+ Samsung Gallery)
Content creators know the more efficient way to write and edit a post for social media is to use a note-taking app like Samsung Notes. With your drafted post in Notes on one side and a social app adjacent, you can publish seamlessly without any back-and-forth. Drag and drop is helpful here, too. And if you want to turn your Z Fold3 into a complete social media machine, add Samsung Gallery to the equation for an image-text-publish trifecta.
- Phone + Samsung Notes + Calendar
Just because you’re on a phone call doesn’t mean you can’t use your phone for other tasks. As you talk to colleagues or customers, Multi-Active Windows can help keep the conversation fluid. With your call on speaker or connected to your Galaxy Buds, open up the Z Fold3 to tablet mode and pull up Samsung Notes to jot down important points. Whether you’re confirming deadlines or scheduling a follow-up, you’ll probably want Calendar open as well.
- Outlook + Calendar + Google Maps
Setting a time and location for an in-person meeting is easier than ever on the Z Fold3. As you’re emailing a colleague to coordinate your schedules, use Google Maps to find a nearby cafe or restaurant and check the directions, travel time and transit options. When everything lines up, you can send a calendar invite with the location included.
