The Samsung Galaxy S6 Edge Plus is one of the best-looking smartphones on the market. This is thanks to the futuristic curved display that wraps around the sides of the phone. As cool as this hardware looks by itself, some software can make it useful and fun. We’ve got some app and game recommendations to help you get the most out of your Galaxy S6 Edge+.

Milk Music

Milk Music is a fairly typical streaming service, but it benefits from an innovative interface that lets you choose the perfect soundtrack for the mood you’re in, as well as a music curation engine powered by Slacker Radio. Slacker is one of the more under-appreciated music platforms out there, and Milk Music perfectly highlights this. [Download]

Nova Launcher

SideSync is one of the most underrated and least talked about Samsung apps. It allows you to mirror your phone screen on your PC or Mac, which makes it super easy to use Android apps on your computer, or just keep up with notifications. SideSync comes pre-installed on most Samsung phones, but it’s also in the Play Store. [Download]

Snapseed

As we noted in our review, the Edge+ has one of the best cameras on the market (tied only with Samsung’s other phones). Make it even better with Snapped, an app that offers powerful photo editing and manipulation tools to touch up photos or turn them into works of art. [Download]

Wunderlist

Wunderlist

Wunderlist is one of the best to-do apps on any platform. Wunderlist has powerful syncing features that will keep all of your data synced up across all of your devices. You can create and manage as many task lists as you want, and can even invite friends and co-workers to collaborate on a list if it’s more than a one man job. [Download]

More Best Apps Lists

With so many great apps in the Play Store, it’s nearly impossible to list them all. That hasn’t stopped us from trying. Check out the lists below for more apps!

Galaxy S6 Edge+ Games

Letters Game for S6 Edge

There aren’t many games that take advantage of the Edge screen, in fact, this is the only one we could find. In this game you swap letters in the edge screen to form words. You only have 30 seconds to complete a word, and next letters will be more difficult to work with. Each word completed earns you one point. [Download]

Atomas

Atomas is a puzzle game with a scientific twist. Your job is to create valuable elements such as gold, platinum, and silver by combining atoms. It might sound complicated, but the game is actually very simple. All you do is create atoms until there are no more moves left. [Download]

Crossy Road

If you’ve ever played (and enjoyed) Frogger, you will probably like Crossy Road. In this version you have to cross busy roads, rivers filled with logs and lily pads, railways, and more. The goal is to get as far as possible without being killed. [Download]

Current Flow

current flow screens

Like a lot of puzzle games this one sucks you in by starting off very easy. The goal of Current Flow is to supply energy to light bulbs by creating a complete circuit. To do this, you tap on tiles to rotate conduit pipes. Once the pipes create a complete circuit between the power source and the light bulb it will light up. [Download]

Monument Valley

You’ll be hard-pressed to find a more beautiful game for Android than Monument Valley. It’s a 3D puzzle game that messes with your perception of time and space. The puzzles are tough, but you’ll be blown away by the visuals. [Download]

If you’re a trivia buff, there is no better game than QuizUp. You can test your trivia prowess against people from all over the world. It doesn’t matter if you’re a science genius or just someone who likes to watch Seinfeld. There is a category for every person. [Download]

Super Hexagon

Super Hexagon is a classic time killing game. All you have to do is keep your arrow from running into the closing walls. It’s remarkably simple in concept, but brutally difficult when you actually play it. Be prepared to get sucked in for hours at a time. [Download]

Threes!

threes

Threes! is a cute puzzle game unlike any other. The idea is to combine blocks to create multiples of 3, but you don’t need to be good at math to play. 1’s combines with 2’s to make 3, 3’s pair up with other 3’s, 6’s with 6’s, and so on. The goal is to make blocks with big numbers until there are no moves left. [Download]

Two Dots

Two Dots is what happens when you take a simple concept and juice it up to the extreme. The basic idea is to combine strings of colored dots, but there’s much more to it than that. Sometimes the dots are frozen, sometimes there’s fire, and sometimes you have to get anchors to the bottom of the grid. [Download]

Ultraflow

ULTRAFLOW

In case you haven’t figured it out by now, simple games are usually the most fun. The goal of Ultraflow is to simply get your ball to the goal. In order to do that you need to bounce your ball off of walls, but it doesn’t stop there. You’re only allowed a certain amount of bounces, and there are tons of obstacles making it more difficult.
