Update: Please read our Kies Air Download and How To guide
Well this is certainly a surprise. In an effort to probably compete with all the new WiFi syncing features present in apps like Android Manager and DoubleTwist, Samsung has released a Kies Air app for the i9000 Galaxy S device. It allows you to view:
- call logs
The app will also allow you to send text messages through the desktop application. To get this on your device first download the latest version of Kies. Now go into the Samsung Apps Market on your i9000 Galaxy S and download the Kies Air app. Now make sure BOTH your laptop/desktop and phone are on the same WiFi connection. From there it is only a matter of connecting to the desktop software via your mobile app.
This could be a great alternative to the problems users have faced in the past trying to get their devices to connect to the Kies software. Unfortunately Kies is still only available for the Windows platform so you’ll have to dual boot or run a type of vmware product to take advantage of this OSX users.
Let us know how it works out for you in the comments below so we can share those experiences with our other readers and give the US variants something to look forward to 😉
