The latest trend in mobile devices seems to be the ability to share files wirelessly between different devices. Kies Air proves to be particularly useful as it enables users to share files from their mobile device to a PC, laptop, or even another mobile device. In its most basic form, this app turns your mobile device into a wireless server.

Kies Air installs quickly and easily. Simply download the application and you are ready to share. Access to the mobile device can either be done through an app downloaded on the second device or simply through a Web browser. The different file types, such as music, videos, SMS, and others, are neatly organized and easily accessed by other devices on the Wi-Fi network. The great thing about this app is that the files are not located on an external server. All files stay securely within the home network. The only negative experience that can occur is the possibility of a difficult connection. On rare occasions we noticed that the device could not be found on the network and the Wi-Fi connection needed to be reset. It should also be noted that extremely large files might cause the mobile device to crash or restart.

While Kies Air leaves some room for improvement, it works for the most part as a useful tool for sharing files. If a wired connection is inconvenient, this app is definitely a great way to solve the problem.

    Developer's Description

    It's time to share wirelessly! Manage your mobile via Internet browser. Kies Air is a application that enables you to easily manage contents saved on your device via PC internet or mobile browser using Wi-Fi technology. Without having to connect any cables, within a browser you can use diverse function such as multimedia transfer, music listening, PIMS management, text message, file search, and so on. Since Kies Air is an application for accessing mobile content from a PC or browser, the application has to read the content from the mobile device in order to carry out this function. To ensure that your data is secure and not shared without your consent, when you install/update an application, Kies Air will ask you to grant permission.

    To access via PC or laptop:

  • Connect the mobile device and the PC or laptop to the same access point (Wi-Fi router)
  • Open Kies Air on the mobile device and tap Start
  • Kies Air on the mobile device will display a URL. Enter the URL in the browser on the PC or laptop
  • Kies Air will display a 4-digit PIN on the mobile device. When prompted, enter the PIN into the browser on the PC or laptop
  • The PC or laptop is now connected and you can access the content of your mobile device. You can also create a desktop icon to connect to Kies Air more easily
  • After creating the desktop icon, you can access Kies Air without having to enter the URL into the browser on the PC or laptop
  • To access via another mobile device (e.g. device B accesses device A):

  • Connect both mobile devices (A and B) to the same access point (Wi-Fi router)
  • Open Kies Air on device A and tap Start
  • Open Kies Air on device B and shake the device twice. This will start a scan for device A
  • Device A will appear on the screen of device B. Tap on device A
  • Kies Air will display a PIN on device A. When prompted, enter the PIN on device B
  • If Kies Air is not installed on device B, enter the URL displayed by device A into the browser on device B. If the motion feature is not supported on device B, press the menu key, and then tap Scan. During installation, Kies Air requests permission to provide you with access to content or other required functions. Your data is only ever accessible within your local network and never sent to the Kies Air team, Samsung, or any other remote server.
