    Samsung Shares SideSync Walkthrough Video to Help You Connect Your Android to Windows


    Samsung shared a handy "how-to" video for their intriguing and useful SideSync feature. This allows a user to connect their Samsung Android device to Windows. It sounds gimmicky at first, but it actually offers quite a versatile set of useful functions. Here's a quick-list:
    • Use your Galaxy smartphone alongside a PC
    • Use the keyboard and mouse to control the handset
    • Automatically sync files between the two devices
    • Allows you to copy clipboard content from one device to the other
    • You can use the smartphone screen as an extension of your PC display
    • Alternatively, you can have a virtual screen inside your Windows environment (and can even resize the screen to fit your needs)

    This seems extra handy for developers, but could also be pretty useful for the average Joe. Check out the video above.

    That's pretty cool actually. Now, where do we find this!

    That's what I want to know. I hope it's not some proprietary garbage where you need a Samsung pc and a $75 dock to make it work.

    Nevermind, he updated the original article, it's in Samsung's apps:

    Well maybe not the latter, but...

    Couldn't figure out why it wasn't connecting, but there you go. It needs that Samsung app on the PC side as well, which, as you said, is only available on Samsung machines... boo!

    I'd wager that Samsung's mobile software Tizen will be stuffed with features like that. The same way Kindle forced everything to go through Amazon.

    I bet you're right - they'll be going the way of Apple full bore, most likely.
