Awesome Hidden Feature: Samsung Kies

While I’ve been using the T-Mobile Samsung Vibrant Galaxy S series smartphone, I’ve been thinking… I wish there was a better way to sync music & videos to this device. Manual USB copy/pasting is really annoying. And also… I wish I could archive text messages off of this device. Well, guess what Samsung made for their Galaxy S phones, but didn’t tell anyone about? It’s called Kies and it’s a desktop program that syncs your phone’s contacts and calendars with Outlook, lets you download media and text messages off your phone, lets you tether the Captivate/Vibrant as a modem, and it reformats videos on your computer for your phone.

That’s right, this might be the best Android desktop syncing software made so far! Download it here.
