Want to view your important files on your mobile anytime and anywhere? Need to work on your documents and recharge your smartphone? Now, you can do all of these activities easily with Samsung’s SideSync! SideSync is a program that allows your Samsung PC and smartphone to work together as one. It is also a backup solution, automatically duplicating all new files and photos while your phone is recharging via the PC.


Samsung's Sidesync


Samsung’s SideSync can be used in two modes, Keyboard and Mouse-sharing and Phone Screen Sharing.  Whichever you choose, all new files from the smartphone will automatically be saved to the PC.


Keyboard and Mouse-sharing Mode

This mode allows you to use the PC’s keyboard and mouse to control and toggle between your smartphone and your PC.  You can easily copy, paste, drag, and drop files between your PC and smartphone, enabling you to view and edit the files anytime and anywhere. You can also answer a text message straight away from your keyboard and get right back to work, simply navigating between devices using the mouse. It’s a great time-saver if you have a complex idea to put into words, or need to do some serious work editing files, and the beauty of it is its portability.


Phone Screen Sharing Mode

In this mode, you can view your mobile screen on your PC screen. You can do everything that you normally do on your phone but you’re able to use your PC’s mouse and keyboard for easier and faster navigation. You can also change the screen size of your phone so you can get close up if you need. Another cool feature is the ability to use the PC mouse to draw pictures – maybe you need to highlight the best route on a map, or maybe you just want to add a personal touch to a photo – having SideSync allows you to do so, and send the images via ChatOn!


Want to see your phone become an extension of your PC, or vice versa? Then try out the Samsung SideSync right away by downloading the SideSync application from the Samsung App store.
