Samsung launches Focus App as unified productivity application on Android
A couple of months back, it was reported that Samsung was working on an application which had some unique features and functionality on the same lines of the Blackberry Hub application. And now after 3 months of the initial reports about that, we now have the application available for download from the Google Play Store. This new app from the company is called Samsung Focus.
As mentioned earlier, this app is now available to download from the play store. The app is labelled as ‘unified productivity application’. This app allows for Exchange ActiveSync, IMAP and POP3 users to better manage their email, calendar, tasks, memo, etc. The application supports a variety of different servers like Exchange Server 2003 SP2/SP3 and above, Google, Naver (IMAP/POP3), Office 365, Hotmail, Outlook.com, etc.

Also, Samsung announced that its focus app will offer direct push sync with Exchange ActiveSync, unified search as well as the ability to add events or tasks from email. Do make a note that Samsung Focus directly connects to the actual mail servers and doesn’t operate any cloud servers. The users’ data is stored on the device itself and is not accessed at all by Samsung. And as far as compatibility is concerned, the Samsung Focus is fully compatible with most Samsung devices powered by Android 6.0.1 Marshmallow and above.
But unfortunately, the app is not available in all countries yet. So it is speculated that the company has just soft-launched the app in certain regions just to test it. So as of now, you might to jump to Google Play store and search for the app. If it is available and you have a Samsung device, then give it shot and let us know how it is by sharing your thoughts on it in the comment section. As of now, the Focus has les than 500 downloads and a 4.4-star rating on the Play store.
