Samsung Galaxy S3 JellyBean Stock Apk's Download

If you like flashing custom ROM's on your Galaxy S3 then you'll be knowing that many ROM's does not contain Stock Samsung apps like SMemo, Stock Music Player, Samsung Apps etc. I used to hate this because I loved SMemo and Stock Music Player but I also wanted the performance custom ROM's deliver. So to get the Best of both worlds, I extracted stock apk's from a TouchWiz based Rom and Today I'm going to list most of the stock samsung apps and will also provide the download link.

Recently I flashed 'FoxHound' Custom Rom on my Galaxy S3 and was sad to see that my favorite stock apps have been disappeared. I tried very hard to bring them back but no luck. Fortunately I was successful in extracting the apk's from a stock rom and then running them on foxhound custom rom. This time they all worked perfectly.
