Samsung signs deal with syncing firm to enable iOS transfers


App announced to enable customers to transfer media from iTunes and iPhones to Galaxy handsets

Samsung has signed a licensing agreement with Easy Phone Sync to enable its Galaxy customers to transfer media from iTunes and iPhones onto their Samsung devices for free.

Using the software, created by Media Mushroom Applications, customers can continue to use their iTunes account on their PC or Mac to manage their music and the Android device will sync to it.

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,” said Samsung UK and Ireland vice president telecommunications and networks Simon Stanford. “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.”
