Samsung announces iTunes syncing app
Samsung has announced an application which allows users to transfer data from their iPhones to Galaxy smartphones. Even better, iTunes users can keep using iTunes to sync and manage their music, videos and podcasts on their smartphones.
Samsung releases the app, Easy Phone Sync, to every buyer of a Galaxy smartphone in the United Kingdom. The app needs to be installed both on the mobile device as on the corresponding computer (PC or Mac). The app can both fetch data from iTunes as put data into iTunes from the Galaxy phones. The Easy Phone Sync Pro version costs 2,49 euros while there is also a free version around which seems to be currently incompatible with all Android devices. The name of this APK is Galaxy Sync, which might be the beta name or something. There is also not much known about the difference and limitations of the Free vs the Pro version.
Music bought from the iTunes store can also be transferred, Media Mushroom says. This is the company that has developed this app for Samsung.
Samsung isn’t the first brand who has made software available to sync their phones with iTunes. HTC has made a solution a while ago too. Easy Phone Sync isn’t new either, as it seems to have been in the Android market for over a half year now (before Samsung bundled it with their Galaxy line in the UK).
