Samsung iTest is a new interactive app by the South Korean giant that lets iPhone users get a taste of Android OS on their handsets. iTest emulates Android OS on Samsung Galaxy smartphone experience by adding an app on the users’ iPhone that gives them “a little taste of Samsung.” The new iTest website is currently being advertised in New Zealand but is accessible worldwide. It is expected that Samsung may advertise this website globally sometime in the near future. Gadgets 360 was independently able to test the app.
When a user opens the iTest website, they are greeted with a QR code on the home screen. Scanning that code will prompt the users with a message that indicates them to add the app to their home screen. Once that is done, the user can experience Android OS on their iPhone. The overall experience with the app has been smooth but it involves quite a few dummy apps as well. There are SMS notifications that give tips and hints on how to navigate through the app.
We tried the camera app but rather than showcasing the camera app from Samsung, it involved a tutorial from photographer Logan Dudds. Frankly, a demo of the camera app would have been a much better experience. On the home screen, it is a typical Android OS experience and it also has a few of Samsung’s inbuilt app icons such as Galaxy Store, Galaxy themes, Gallery, and Galaxy Wearable. Some of the apps in the app drawer work while the rest are just dummy icons bundled as Popular apps. iTest was first spotted by MacRumors.
