    "The worst program ever"

    April 3, 2014  |   By spicyshellshell

    Version: Kies 2.6.1.13105

    Pros

    None! This program is absolutely worthless and it ruined my computer.e I rate this program a minus 5 star

    Cons

    It ruined my computer. I've uninstalled the program and still cannot access internet. Have to have a tech find out what it did to my computer. Don't install whatever you do it will ruin you computer.

    "Worst Software EVER!"

    March 17, 2014  |   By 3232132

    Version: Kies 2.6.1.13105

    Pros

    Free - so is a good poke in the eye

    Cons

    While I actually like my Galaxy phone, I will be RUNNING back to my Iphone upon completion of my contract due to the inability to ever be able to sync my Outlook calendar, music, etc without complete frustration and waste of time. Upgrades to newer versions only reduce the functionality even more.

    Summary

    It is actually remarkable at just how bad this software is. A real shame as the phone shows real promise as a bona-fide competitor to Apple. Unfortunately if you can't effectively bridge you phone and your computer, it doesn't really matter how good your phone might be. I agree with another user, a one star is still over-rating this code.

    "Wow....what a let down!"

    March 5, 2014  |   By erad2008

    Version: Kies 2.6.1.13105

    Pros

    NONE! Stay away!

    Cons

    Used this software in version 2. Worked perfect backing up and restoring. Now I just used Kies v3. What can I say???? Did NOT back up my urgent messages....lost them all. What a JOKE!!!! Stay away from at all cost! I am not the only one...Google it. Bunch of morons...do they actually test their software before realeasing it?????????? NOT HAPPY!!

    Summary

    Absolute joke, Pity their incompetence has lost me all my important messages!

    Updated on Mar 5, 2014

    Where did they get their programmers from? Kindergarten? Oops...even they could do better!

    "Not only useless, but FRUSTRATING"

    February 24, 2014  |   By MustangLCDR

    Version: Kies 2.6.1.13105

    Pros

    It's Free.

    Cons

    Where do I start? Let's just say that as I write this, I have to restrain myself from using swear words to describe how FRUSTRATING and non-intuitive this piece of software is.

    Cons

    Utter garbage.

    Summary

    Messed up my computer, my mp3 player and has never properly worked. It took music OFF of my mp3 player!

    "If only I could rate Samsung Kies a "0""

    February 4, 2014  |   By platinumrice

    Version: Kies 2.6.1.13105

    Pros

    -There is nothing positive to say about this app. It's CRAP.

    Cons

    -Will take a while to start up for phone sync and backup.
    -App is unable to sync with phone (connected via USB or Wifi) most of the time.
    -SLOW, SLOW, SLOW.

    Summary

    I would not recommend this Samsung Kiew to anyone unless Samsung makes some major improvements with this app. Stick with Android File Transfer, fast and quick file transfers.

    "Kies 3: Banana Software"

    February 1, 2014  |   By desertfox1899

    Version: Kies 2.6.1.13105

    Pros

    none none none

    Cons

    junk. does not sync with outlook. does not sync music.

    Summary

    This is typical "banana software": it is delivered "green" and then left to mature with the consumer. Samsung test your software before you release it. Outlook sync does not work. There is no music sync and playback works unreliably (cannot not skip to next songs.)

    "a nightmare"

    January 21, 2014  |   By kondor17

    Version: Kies 2.6.1.13105

    Pros

    wth... Samsung looks unable to develop a decent Sync for its hardware ... at least Kies 2.6 synced something with android 4.2, but not with 4.3 and Samsung "tried" with Kies 3.0 to fid a solution. They r still trying... 4 months not enough? What do they need, 4 years?? Incompetence pure.

    Cons

    Suicide or Hope?

    Summary

    and call centres look not informed about that... or they r briefed to deny the evidence.
