Samsung walks us through SideSync feature: connect your Android to Windows

Samsung unveiled its SideSync feature that connects deeply Samsung’s Windows-based computers to Android smartphones, but we did not get to hear much about it back at its announcement. This changes now as Samsung details all the applications for SideSync in a walkthrough video.

Basically, SideSync allows you to use your Galaxy smartphone alongside a PC, using the keyboard and mouse to control the handset. It not only automatically syncs files between the two devices, but it also allows you to copy clipboard content from one device to the other effortlessly.

You can either use the smartphone screen as an extension to your PC display, or have a virtual screen inside your Windows environment. The benefits of the latter include the possibility to resize the screen to fit your needs. Check it all out in the video below.

Boom! It's nothing new but makes sense if you actively use the computer/laptop and the phone fore work, or on many other occasions.

Now did I say useless for whom? Its useless for me and a few others who have plenty of time to waste! Look at comment #12 and that should explain the rest for which again you started bashing blindly! I'm not a Sammy hater but you sure are a blind Sammy fanboy!

Cause ur comment is useless. Do you own a s4 to try that app out? Do you plan to own a s4? If u answer no to those questions then your comment is useless like you

It's getting full of Samsung haters and they are becoming more butthurts.. How the hell is this possibly useless? Please don't tell me you don't need it

Now I didn't say its useless for all.! Its probably useless for me! Its for those who work and don't have time to lift their smartphones every now and then. But for me and most of you out there its pretty useless. So instead of just flaming at me, take some time, read and then bash someone! Look at the comment #12. I told why! You are the one's who are butthurt and I am not a Samsung hater! Say what you want to say! IDC!

So its not useless at all..ur frst commnt is generally addrssed.. And how come it is only useful for workers?

25. aditya.k

Posts: 496; Member since: Mar 10, 2013

What I want to say is its very useful for workers as they don't have enough time to check their phone every now and then, so everything is on their screen. Now I don't mean to say its just a waste for others. I might feel lazy sometimes to use the smaller keyboard and might use my lappy. What I want to say is this helps the people who are really busy. Man I give up alright! You win. I'm tired of explaining stuff to you. Yeah its my mistake I addressed it generally rather than saying it for me! Happy now?

Its for those who go for work probably. For others its not much of a use!

at least there is a reason!! shud samsung make a galaxy worker, galaxy kids, galaxy teenager, galaxy cool, galaxy elders just to allocate the features for every group of consumers?? these are d things that close-minded sammy haters cant understand and just throw "useless gimmicks" comments w/o even thinking a point where someone can find a reason to use such,, and thats why samsung let us turn it on and off

Now what's wrong with that comment? Did I say only workers should buy that phone? No! I just said its useful only for the workers probably! That's it. I didn't say Samsung should make different phones for different people. Think before drawing any conclusion out of a comment. So you are close minded! Understand? And I am not a Samsung hater! :@
