Samsung said to be taking its app ecosystem to iOS

Apple hasn’t jumped platforms very well. But everyone else has — which only serves to reinforce the idea that the iPhone is the phone to have forever and ever everywhere. Microsoft and Google have come to play, now there’s word that Apple’s largest competitor in the mobile space will bring its software over to the App Store.

Samsung may be planning on bringing its S Health, Gear Fit Manager and Gear Manager apps to iOS. This would open up the company’s Gear wearables to iPhone compatibility.


It also plans on bringing Remote Control and the Family Square apps for use with the the Samsung Galaxy View. Imagine using an iPhone to control a huge Android tablet. Its connected cameras will also get iOS support with the Smart Camera app.

As Samsung expands its IoT portfolio, it will need as wide a support net as possible.
