SEOUL, Korea, July 14, 2010 — Samsung Apps has you covered for your upcoming summer vacation.

Is there a mosquito problem you didn’t account for at your countryside resort? No problem — try Vanilabreeze’s Anti-Mosquito app, which emits an insect-repelling sonic frequency. Need a last-minute car rental? Touch one button and you can have a reservation at the nearest station with the Sixt app. Don’t know what that interesting piece of sushi is in front of you?

Samsung Apps, the mobile phone application hub for Samsung Electronics Co. Ltd., is here to alleviate some of your summer holiday wrinkles with applications geared for the summer traveler. From train tickets to dinner reservations and everything unique in between, the rapidly expanding app store can furnish you with virtually any travel-related application you could possibly think of.

“While it’s meant to be a fun, relaxing way to spend time, sometimes traveling can be stressful. That’s why we’re singling out our travel-related apps for the summer season,” said Kanghyun Kwon, vice president, Media Solutions Center, Samsung Electronics. “Samsung Apps has grown tremendously since its inception, and now we’re at a point where we can offer virtually any app for any travel situation.”
