Samsung says it cut back on bloatware with the Galaxy S6, but the company’s latest flagship phone still comes packed with popular third-party apps for you to enjoy. In total, the new device offers 22 free apps according to a list obtained by SammyHub.

For gaming fans, Samsung has included Pac-Man Friends, The Hobbit: Kingdoms and Dragons of Atlantis: Heirs. If you’d rather spend your time reading the company is also offering apps for The Economics, The New York Times, Pocket, Kindle for Samsung and Audible when you just want to hear someone else read your book for you.

Other pre-installed apps include fitness services like Endomondo and Workout Trainer, along with creative tools like VSCO and Magisto. You’ll also find Uber, Keepy, PayPal, Life360, LastPass, Shazam, Fleksy, Evernote, Parallels Access and Hancom Office. Plenty of these apps are available free from Google Play, but this way you’ll have immediate access right out of the box.

Samsung has also packed plenty of its own software into the Galaxy S6. The devices features an upgraded camera UI, a new mobile payment service and plenty of health tracking options along with a built-in heart rate monitor. Of course, you also get a slick new glass and metal design along with cutting edge hardware.

The new flagship phone is set to launch around the world on April 10. Samsung still hasn’t revealed its price, though we’re guessing the Galaxy S6 will be available for $199 on contract here in the U.S.
