Samsung’s SideSync remote management software for Windows promised some pretty nifty functionality for owners of the Korea-based company’s Android devices, but it was unfortunately limited to Samsung’s ATIV line of tablets and laptops. Thankfully, that is changing today with the version 3.0 update, which removes the restriction and introduces support for the Galaxy S5.
In addition to automatic backups and file transfers, SideSync allows users to mirror their Samsung device’s screen on PC and use their keyboard and mouse to input, copy, and paste text.
The program is available for download at no charge, but you will need a Samsung device running KitKat and the SideSync companion app to use it.
Unfortunately, many Play Store reviewers have noted that the software sometimes fails to detect devices via WiFi and USB. It may be smart to hold off on downloading until Samsung sorts out the bugs.
