GALAXY Apps is Samsung Electronics' application store. Samsung Apps was first launched in September 2009 on the Omnia and Omnia 2 (Windows Mobile OS) devices. Samsung Apps was initially available on devices running the Symbian, Windows Mobile, Bada, and Android operating systems, but then became available on the Windows Mobile Omnia, Bada Wave, and Android Galaxy devices only. Starting from 1 July 2014, Support of Bada and Windows Mobile ended and the Store was renamed to Samsung Galaxy Apps.

Samsung Apps was first introduced as a shop-in-shop on Omnia devices on 14 September 2009. By integrating with S Suggest, Samsung Apps is able to recommend apps from both Samsung Apps and Google Play Store.
Paid content became available on 14 September 2009.
70% of the proceeds from purchases of applications, after deduction of VAT and all transaction fees (more than 90% for some payment methods), are forwarded to the corresponding developer, with a variable delay (up to 6 months for some payment methods). The remaining 30% of the proceeds are then distributed amongst the involved businesses and Samsung Apps.
Unlike some other Android application markets, Samsung Apps validates all third-party applications for malware and harmful content before making them available for download or purchase through the store. This validation process includes verification of installation permissions.
