Samsung Kies software is a freeware for Samsung Device users which enable you to manage your multimedia files, perform synchronization and backups of your data, and most importantly for plenty of people, the ability to install the latest firmware version of your Bada or Android phones without having to rely on Over The Air (OTA) notifications coming in.
Samsung Kies in the past was only available on Windows, but today a Mac version of Kies has been released in beta form. Now you can do as Windows users do! This Mac version gives OS X users the ability to upgrade firmware, sync music, photos, videos and podcasts. Since the software is still in beta so don’t expect it to be all hunky-dory. The number of devices supported also seems to be limited for now, which includes Galaxy S, Galaxy S II, 7-inch Galaxy Tab, but we expect Samsung to add their older devices over time..
Supports: Mac OS X 10.5 ~ 10.6
- Updating firmware may take upto 1 Hour (depending upon your internet speed). Please don’t unplug your device and don’t worry, its normal to take such time
- Keep in mind that toying with beta releases is always fraught with danger, such as unstable and unfit for daily usage.
