One of the biggest problems for Apple’s customers is simply breaking free of the hold Apple has over them. Simple things like being able to take your full music collections from iTunes to another device have always seemed to be a huge pain in the neck and has often stopped people migrating to Android devices from Apple devices however, this will now be a thing of the past as far as anyone who purchases a Galaxy device from Samsung is concerned.
A deal with Media Mushroom will allow customers who buy a Galaxy device to finally break free from the addictive fruit and move to the little green robot by allowing full sync with iTunes via their Galaxy device.
Sadly there is no word if this new app or whatever it may be will be available for other / older devices or whether it will cover a certain range but either way this is a positive step for Samsung to take and sadly another possibility for a court case.[pressrelease]
SAMSUNG CUSTOMERS NOW ABLE TO TRANSFER CONTENT FROM IOS TO ANDROID FOR FREE
Exclusive licensing agreement makes Easy Phone Sync available on Samsung Galaxy devices
22nd June 2012, London, UK – Samsung Mobile UK today announced it will be making Easy Phone Sync available for free to anyone purchasing a Samsung Galaxy device. Easy Phone Sync is a simple new way for people to transfer their iPhone and iTunes media – including music, videos, podcasts, pictures, contacts and text messages – to a Samsung Galaxy device including the new Galaxy S III.
As part of an exclusive licensing agreement with Media Mushroom Applications, Samsung is making Easy Phone Sync available for free for UK customers to transfer content from their iOS device to their Samsung Galaxy device in a few simple clicks. As well as being able to access DRM free content they have purchased from iTunes music, customers can continue to use iTunes software on their PC to manage their music, videos and podcasts and keep their Android device in sync with it.
Simon Stanford, Vice President, Telecommunications and Networks, Samsung UK and Ireland said: “We’re really proud to announce the launch of this new application and can’t wait to hear what our new and existing customers think of it. We know that traditionally iPhone users have been reluctant to switch to an Android device because they couldn’t use iTunes to manage their content. Easy Phone Sync means people can now enjoy their iTunes content on a Samsung Galaxy phone. What’s more is that it’s really easy for them to do, and literally takes five minutes to set up.”
Easy Phone Sync is available to download now for both PCs and Macs in conjunction with an app for Samsung Android devices.
