Have you bought a Samsung tablet or smartphone and try to find out how you can easily transfer photos, music, and movies to and from your computer? You can buy a cable for it to connect the device directly to your PC. It is also possible to do this wirelessly via the Kies Air app that is offered by Samsung. On this page, you will find more information about this handy app for Samsung owners.
Samsung Kies Air
Samsung Kies Air is a mobile app that helps you manage your smartphone or tablet wirelessly through the browser on your computer. You no longer need to connect a cable to the computer. Also, you need to install the Kies Air program on your computer you want to connect to the Android tablet or smartphone. This desktop software is available for both Windows and Mac OS.
After installing this app on your tablet or smartphone, you a screen with instructions once you start it. This states to which Internet address you must go with the browser on your computer and which PIN code you need to enter in the browser window to connect to the Android device. This only works when both your Android device and your computer are connected to the same Wi-Fi network. You can not connect over the internet with a device that is elsewhere.
After the 4-digit PIN is entered correctly you will see a list of folders within the browser window on your computer that are stored on your tablet or smartphone. By going to the correct folder, you can view photos, videos, music or other files from and to your mobile device. In addition, you can also manage your contacts folder and message lists, but most people will primarily use the app for transferring multimedia files.
Alternatively, two mobile Android devices can be connected directly with each other without using a computer. To do this, launch the app on both devices, and click on the one on “Start” and shake the other. It then looks for other devices and shows which have been found. Then select it and you have to enter the code that is displayed on the other device to connect, just like on the computer.
