the Galaxy S3 does have a few apps that are not pre-installed, but available by choosing the "other services" icon in the app drawer. these apps go easily un-noticed, even though they are quite handy and a nice extra for us samsung users:

-KiesCast
Podcastmanager and downloader which lets you subscribe and listen/view audio & video podcasts

-Flipboard
Google Currents in polished e-Magizine reader for comsumption of personalized news you like and are interested in (even does fetch news from your twitter account)

-MyStory
let's you send digital poster cards to your friends (didn't try that one yet)

-S Baro
a barometer which shows you the current altitude of your phone

-MiniDiary
little diary tool which lets you take a picture, add a note on it, saves the date and geotag so after your vacation you have a neat litte album of photos and descriptions with photos... really nice

-Family Story
kind of a social network only for your family to share pics and stuff

-Photo Editor
lets you edit the photos you have taken.

Ooh, thanks for the heads up about KiesCast - I flicked through the More Services apps and downloaded a couple but totally didn't notice KiesCast and have been trying to find a decent podcast app the last few days! Google Listen is annoying me.

Downloading it now and will give it a go - thanks very much! Big Grin

Thanks for the info, but where do I find them?
I can't see anything named "other services", or "more services".
Thanks

Assuming you're using the stock launcher, at the bottom of your screen is about 16 small squares in a square shape with Apps written underneath it, that's your app drawer, tap that and all you apps that are on the phone are listed in there.

Odd, Maybe a network limitation, which network are you with? I'm sure I saw it on the stock T-Mobile firmware before I debranded it.
