    It is perfectly optimized on the Samsung Wave and Wave 2 so keep in mind that all these apps run best on the two models while some apps run exclusively on these two models.

    This allows the phone to support cool looking and quality free third party applications (apps) for play and work.

    The following is a top ten list of free Samsung Bada apps.
