Discover Theme Apps

Theme apps are skins that customize the device UI (graphics, fonts, colors, sounds, and more) to reflect an underlying concept, mood, brand, or other design factors to attract customers, and are created without coding in the Theme Editor

Your Theme App Market

You can market your free and paid Theme apps (wallpapers, themes, icon packs, and AODs) in the Samsung Theme Store to an estimated 40 million global customers. About 15% of visitors download at least one Theme app; as of December 2017, 50 million Theme products have been downloaded globally. Users can purchase your paid Theme apps  by various electronic payment methods(including credit and debit cards, carrier billing, Samsung Pay, and PayPal) in 90+ countries: South Korea, China, Japan, United States, Brazil, Canada, Australia, Hong Kong, India, Indonesia, Iran, Italy, France, Germany, Mexico, Poland, Spain, Thailand, Turkey, and the United Kingdom.

Here is how your customers get and download your Theme apps in the Theme Store.

AccessThemeStore.PNGYour Theme apps are promoted in many ways: in the Themes page, Theme Store categories (Nature, Travel, Entertainment, Sentimental, Colorful, Sports, and others), and by theme banners.

Theme apps are supported by Samsung Galaxy S6 and later mobile devices that have a display of at least HD resolution.  More than 30 smartphones now support Theme apps, including Samsung's flagship Galaxy and Note series.
