How to use S Finder on the Samsung Galaxy Note 3

Samsung_Galaxy_Note_3_S_Finder

S Finder might be the coolest feature on the Galaxy Note 3. It’s the ultimate tool for searching for anything on your device. It will not only find music and videos, but it will also search for both text and handwriting in your Scrapbook and Notes. If you have a lot of items in your Scrapbook and/or you have a lot of Notes, you are going to rely on S Finder a lot. You can even fine tune the parameters such as tags and/or date ranges.

It’s easy to get to S Finder. Just open the Air Command by hovering your S Pen over any screen. Then press the button on the S Pen and the Air Command fan will appear. Just select the 4th option, S Finder. You can then type or write whatever term you want to search for and set the parameters.

Hit the break for my video showing you how it works. Also, be sure to check out our other Galaxy Note 3 guides.

Robert lives in upstate New York where he was born and raised. Technology was always his passion. His first computer was a Radio Shack TRS80 Color that used a cassette tape to save programs, and his first laptop was a Toshiba T1200FB that sported a CGA greyscale screen and two 720kb floppy drives (no hardrive). From the early 90’s through late 2011, he only owned Motorola phones starting with the MircroTAC all the way through to the Droid X. He broke that streak when he bought the Galaxy Nexus. Now he's sporting a Galaxy Note 4, and absolutely loves it. He has a wonderful wife and a 6 year old son. In his free time he enjoys sports, movies, TV, working out, and trying to keep up with the rapid fast world of technology.
