They released an android featured WhatsApp Messenger with the launch of first Tizen powered Smartphone Samsung Z1 in the first quarter of 2015. After this, they have released some good essential apps ie. Flipkart, Oxford English dictionary and also added some little games ie.Tic tac toe, Spades by Natural play etc. Next on the hit list they added MX Player app, Angry Birds & Talking Tom Cat, but Talking Tom Cat is now unavailable in Tizen Store may be for security reasons.

This update is available to all Tizen Smartphones such as Samsung Z1, Z2 & Z3. Before installing this app you have to confirm that your ACL for Tizen app is updated to the latest version. The new UC Browser app is about 20MB, which is an increase of size from 16MB of the old UC Browser app.

We hope that they will also get the update of UC Mini, Xander and add new apps. One of the new apps that might come to the Tizen Store via ACL is the VivaVideo app.
