One of the big focuses in Samsung’s Note series has been the S-Pen. We saw some serious improvements in the S-Pen when going from the original Note to the Note 2, but now it’s more of a focus than ever in the Galaxy Note 3, thanks to the Air Command menu.

Air Command is perhaps one of the coolest features about the S-Pen in the Galaxy Note 3. In short, it’s a central and easily accessible location to access a bevy of other cool S-Pen features, such as Action Memo and a feature similar to Sony’s Small Apps.

In order to use Air Command, you have to hover the stylus over the screen and then press the button on the S-Pen itself. After that, a palette-like menu will pop up with five available actions. And that — is Air Command.

Check out our overview of all of the cool Air Command features in the video below. We’re really excited about the Galaxy Note 3, and we hope you are, too! Stay tuned with Android Authority, as we’re on the ground at IFA 2013 showing you all of the epic happenings in the world of Android!
