Tapping that address brings up a full-screen map and you can then use the up arrow icon near the top to send to the Windows Phone mapping system to get directions to the location.

Samsung so far has been mum on the update to Windows Phone 8.1, with not a single handset worldwide getting the OS refresh, including Verizon's recent high-end ATIV SE, which seems built for 8.1.

If there were any doubt of Samsung's commitment, even if it is half-hearted, users can now put their worries aside as the Korean company has a new app on the store dubbed ATIV Clock.
