One of the advantages to buying a Samsung smartphone has long been the free “Galaxy Gifts” you get with it, which have included Dropbox storage, a six-month Deezer subscription, and many paid titles or add-on content.

With the Galaxy S6 and S6 Edge, buyers will get a total of 22 premium apps absolutely free, including VSCO Cam, Fleksy, Parallels Access, and Shazam.

The full list of free titles, obtained by SamMobile, includes:

  • VSCO Cam
  • Magisto
  • Pac-Man Friends
  • The Hobbit: Kingdoms
  • Dragons of Atlantis: Heirs
  • NYTimes
  • The Economist
  • Kindle for Samsung
  • Audible
  • Workout Trainer
  • Endomondo
  • Uber
  • Keepy
  • PayPal
  • Life360
  • LastPass
  • Shazam
  • Fleksy
  • Evernote
  • Pocket
  • Parallels Access
  • Hancom Office

Some of these titles are already free to download, such as Evernote and Pocket, but Samsung is offering free subscriptions to their premium or “Pro” services, as well as add-on content that you won’t have to pay a penny for.

While free apps, games, and subscriptions probably won’t persuade you to buy a Samsung device if you’re already against it, they are a nice bonus for those who choose to get one anyway.
