The most essential benefit of this integration is that Users can search for apps that have support for both Samsung’s smartphones and Gear devices and install or uninstall them at the same time with the just a tap on the Phone App Also button. Updating and managing apps for both the devices gets a similar amount of benefit from the My Apps menu. Gear device (like the Gear S2) users can now preview paid apps before making a purchase.
