Samsung is throwing everything it’s got at Apple with it’s Galaxy S III and today they’re making things even easier for a user of Apple’s software like an iPhone by teaming up with Mushroom Media to create Easy Phone Sync. Easy Phone Sync allows you to simply hook up your USB cable to your Windows PC or Mac and then transfer your music and media from iTunes as well as your contacts and text messages from iOS. It’s available for free for owners of a Samsung Galaxy device and you can pick it up in the Google Play Store.
This seems like a nice way to help iOS users make the transition to a Samsung Android device. One thing to note is that the phone app version doesn’t need to stay installed on the phone once the content has been transferred. You’ll also need to have Easy Phone Sync installed on your PC or Mac to have the process work right. Links will be included below. Have any of you picked up a Samsung Galaxy device that you need to sync your information to? Try out the app and see if it works.
SAMSUNG CUSTOMERS NOW ABLE TO TRANSFER CONTENT FROM IOS TO ANDROID FOR FREE
Exclusive licensing agreement makes Easy Phone Sync available on Samsung Galaxy devices
22nd June 2012, London, UK – Samsung Mobile UK today announced it will be making Easy Phone Sync available for free to anyone purchasing a Samsung Galaxy device. Easy Phone Sync is a simple new way for people to transfer their iPhone and iTunes media – including music, videos, podcasts, pictures, contacts and text messages – to a Samsung Galaxy device including the new Galaxy S III.
As part of an exclusive licensing agreement with Media Mushroom Applications, Samsung is making Easy Phone Sync available for free for UK customers to transfer content from their iOS device to their Samsung Galaxy device in a few simple clicks. As well as being able to access DRM free content they have purchased from iTunes music, customers can continue to use iTunes software on their PC to manage their music, videos and podcasts and keep their Android device in sync with it.
Simon Stanford, Vice President, Telecommunications and Networks, Samsung UK and Ireland said: “We’re really proud to announce the launch of this new application and can’t wait to hear what our new and existing customers think of it. We know that traditionally iPhone users have been reluctant to switch to an Android device because they couldn’t use iTunes to manage their content. Easy Phone Sync means people can now enjoy their iTunes content on a Samsung Galaxy phone. What’s more is that it’s really easy for them to do, and literally takes five minutes to set up.”
Easy Phone Sync is available to download now for both PCs and Macs in conjunction with an app for Samsung Android devices.
