What's the Samsung Kies?

Officially offered by Samsung as a PC suite tool that can be connected to the computer, Kies, a management software, provides users with a variety of features, including synchronizing pictures, videos, music, contacts and other data, searching for new software, and viewing software on PC in full screen mode. Apart from these, it supports easy operation of backing up or transferring data, and managing multimedia files. There is also the independent built-in Marketplace, on which users can sync software to their mobile phones after downloading directly through Kies without the necessity to login Marketplace.

Why We need a Samsung Kies Alternative

However, does this Samsung tool work so well in reality? I have seen quite some negative feedbacks and fierce criticism drawn from users on Kies via the Internet. Plenty of people pointed out that when they downloaded software with Kies, they could not open the software, and there appeared "Application failed to initialize properly". Only when they installed Net Framework 4.0 as well could they solve the problem, which was exceedingly troublesome. Some users said, a matter of fact, Kies was not as useful as it was publicized, and there were simply a few functions rather than multiple ones. Additionally, it did not work in a smooth manner, which is a waste of time and makes users impatient. Complaints also arose as after some firmware was upgraded, it showed that the connection with Samsung Kies was abnormal, and Kies did not support such a device, not even by repeating uninstalling and reinstalling it several times. There were constant problems coming up with the progress rates when upgrading through Kies too. Last but not least mentioned by users is that it failed to identify the mobile phones every now and then when connected to the computer with a USB.

It seems that Samsung Kies is horrible. Now we have a far more powerful and truly helpful management tool for you, Vibosoft Android Mobile Manager, a real convenient one to eliminate what may have been annoying you with Kies. You'll be able to make modifications to a variety of software at will. Besides, it offers these functions that you can add contacts and send text messages through it.

It is surely a much better alternative to Samsung Kies, assuring both efficiency and functionality. Further more, this program can be applied to all Android phones besides Samsung. Don't wait until it's too late. Just say good bye to Samsung Kies and become a user of Android Mobile Manager!
