If the kitchen is the heart of your home, then the refrigerator is probably the heart of your kitchen—it's the one place where everyone in the family turns up, whether it's to catch breakfast, grab an afterschool sports drink, or graze for a late-night snack. Now the refrigerator can be way more than just the family pit stop. Thanks to a brilliant 8" Wi-Fi–enabled LCD screen loaded with apps, refrigerators have become "info central" for the whole family. They don't just keep your food cool, they let everyone chill out a little with apps that help the busiest family stay organized, connected and even entertained.
From breakfast to bedtime, your family is always on the go. Now you can keep everyone on track and well-prepared for even the most jam-packed day with your refrigerator apps. Google Calendar lets you keep tabs on everyone's schedule, so whether it's a bake sale, a dentist appointment or a parent-teacher conference, the day's events will never take you by surprise. Plus, you’ll have direct access to the calendar so you can create new appointments from the homescreen.
Memo eliminates the clutter of dry-erase boards and notepads with a super-simple way to jot down shopping lists, notes and reminders, plus family members can use Memo to leave messages for each other that won't get lost in a paper shuffle.
Check out Weather Bug before going to bed or in the morning, and you'll be prepared for whatever the day brings, whether the kids need to wear snow boots in the morning, or pack extra water bottles for a sunny afterschool track meet. And since no one has time to read the paper, let the AP News app download you on the day's current events while you're downing that morning cup of coffee.
Display family photos and kids' crayon creations in the heart of the home without covering the refrigerator in a forest of magnets—the Photo app lets you upload images from your Picasa library, mobile phone or SD Card and show them off in a brilliant LCD slideshow.
Thanks to the built-in speakers, you can listen to all of your Pandora stations and let music add more fun to being in the kitchen. Choose some lively morning tunes to get the day started, set a mellow mood for dinner—you might even be able to persuade the kids to help out with dinner or cleaning up if they can play their own favorite stations while they're doing it.
Your social networks don't slow down when you're in the kitchen. Twitter and Facebook make it easy to keep up with friends, family and followers. Catch up with other moms, view tweets from your favorite foodie, or check out everyone’s Facebook status, even on the busiest days.
Samsung refrigerators don't have an app that will actually cook for you, but they do have the next best thing—apps that will help you become more efficient and creative in the kitchen. With the award-winning Epicurious app, you can search over 30,000 professionally created and tested recipes for everything from an easy weeknight dinner to a backyard birthday bash. Experiment with different dishes or find quick, delicious meals using ingredients you already have, then get foolproof stove-side instructions that will have you cooking like a pro.
To make sure no food is wasted in your fridge, the Grocery Manager allows you to track the expiration date of your perishables. You’ll be able to set up convenient reminders, so you can enjoy those fresh vegetables instead of throwing them into the trash.
Of course, a refrigerator still has to do what it does best—keep your food fresh and organized. That's why the LCD display also includes a Settings app, which lets you access and manage all of your Samsung refrigerator's settings in one easy location. Control the temperature, ice dispensing and energy-saving settings, or set the door alarm and change your LCD display's screensaver with just a tap on the screen.
