Samsung SideSync

I recently heard a bit about the integration that Apple has done. The idea that people might have a phone, a PC and a tablet seems to have alluded manufactures. How many times have you been sitting next to your computer and you get a text message and while your sitting in front of a full size keyboard and instead of being able to use it you type on the phone? Well Samsung seem to have woken up to the idea and have released a product called Samsung Side Sync. The idea is you load SideSync on your phone as well as an app on your PC. Only some phones are supported but fortunately my S4 happens to be one of the few. You get a complete remote control window of your phone on your laptop.
You can use your keyboard and mouse of your keyboard to control the phone. Type texts, browse, use Android Apps whatever. This app is pretty impressive once you get it working. The install takes some time. I could not for the life of me get it to work on WIFI. It definitely seems buggy. And for some reason the SideSync will not run on my Galaxy Note 8, no idea why.

It’s a great start. Now how people are suppose to find out about it is a mystery.
