    Anyone using Kies Air on the Samsung Galaxy S 2? Allows you to transfer files to and from your phone via your PC's web browser. As it's over WLAN it's just as fast as USB.

    All you do is start the app on your phone and it gives you the url to type into your browser. That's it. Interface is fantastic too. :eek: No need for USB at all. Best of all you can still use your phone like normal and multitask unlike with USB.

    This video explains it well:



    Full file explorer too:

    Ok, close enough not to make a huge difference. Seriously it's fast! Just tested and it took 10 seconds to upload a 22 MB file.

    You think you can confuse it by browsing from the phone.

    If an app isn't popular on Android then it's usually not worth having.
    Oh ok, cause that's a good argument. In all seriousness I'm not disagreeing with you but you shouldn't just close an argument with a weak opinion.... and state it like it means something between our conversation.

    Lol it isn't. I like the idea thought and would love to have this implemented in more phones. I don't EVER actually sync my phone to the computer though.

    Thanks for posting

    Root and install Titanium Backup. Best backup service there is.

    P4u wanted me to pay 150 for the sgs2, so I went with the desire s in the end. Forgot how much I like launcher pro with bits of sense chucked in. Quite like it so far. Certainly quick enough for the things I actually found myself using the o2x for.
