    I have a Samsung 3 phone and it came with the paper picture app. I either accidentally deleted it or uninstalled it. Is there a way for me to retrieve it? Right now, it's at the app store for $2.99. Would like to get the app that came with the phone. Is there a way? Thanks, Sonia

    Hi Sonia, if the app came with the phone A) you can't delete it without having rooted the phone so it could be in your app drawer and only the icon is missing. B) if it came with the phone you may not be able to download it from the store anyway. Stock apps, (ones that came with the phone can usually only be updated when you get an update of Android.

    Check the application manager in your settings, make sure you're at the "all" tab as well. Maybe it's in there and you disabled it, from there you can enable it and have it back.
