Samsung is apparently super confident and super proud of its One UI user interface running on its Android devices that it may be the key in coaxing non-Samsung Galaxy users – iPhone users, included – to jump ship. This led to the launch of a web app ‘Try Galaxy’ in 2022 that allows users to experience the One UI interface, including the icons, widgets, and navigation.
The app also lets you sample other innovative and unique apps, and features that set Samsung Galaxy apart from its competition. Since its launch, the app has been downloaded over 2 million times, Samsung said. In recent months, the web app has been enhanced to allow users of non-Galaxy smartphones to test drive new features from the Galaxy S23 series and One UI 5.1.
That said, if you are an iPhone user, you can experience the One UI before deciding if you want to jump ship. All you need to do is to head on over to trygalaxy.com on your iPhone’s Safari internet browser. Once on the page, you will then want to tap on the share icon and then look for “Add to Home Screen”. You may need to scroll a little to find the “Add to Home Screen” option.
Once done. Return to your home screen and you will find the Try Galaxy web app. Tap it and get through a couple of introductory pages, which include a disclaimer that indicates that this web app is merely a simulation of One UI and that you are not actually accessing the actual apps or your device’s functions or hardware when the app is running. Get past those pages, the UI launches and you will be guided to some of the key features of the One UI. It is really that simple.
In fact, we didn’t even need to lay out the steps. All we need to direct you to trygalaxy.com and the website, and subsequently, the web app, will take you through the rest of the way.
