Can’t say I’m too familiar with Samsung Kies (I’ve tried to avoid using it) but from what I’ve read, it’s Samsung’s version of iTunes used for syncing media to your desktop, and updating the software of Samsung devices via a handy desktop interface. That interface was given an overhaul in the latest update (188.8.131.5295_7) and besides a sprucing up of the UI, Kies is now finally compatible with Mountain Lion. Now that I have this shiny new Galaxy S3 (stubborn kid voice) I guess I’ll give it go… Hmph. For those wanting to give Kies a try for the first time, here’s the download links from Samsung:
After installation, you’ll be prompted for the 184.108.40.20695_7 update.
And then… updated Kies!
