Galaxy owners can now transfer media, contacts, and messages from iTunes and iOS


Samsung have announced a partnership with Easy Phone Sync to bring exclusive licensing of the app to Samsung. The app would allow Galaxy users to transfer music, movies, photos, podcasts, contacts, and messages from iTunes and iOS.

It’s a good move by Samsung who are targeting iOS owners and they’ll need all the tools they can get to make sure users can make a seamless transition.

The app will be free for owners of most Galaxy phones and tablets, and while we’re sure this is only a timed exclusive it’s nice to know Samsung’s got your back and that you don’t have to pay for it (unless they licensing deal ever expires).

Exclusive licensing agreement makes Easy Phone Sync available on Samsung Galaxy devices

22nd June 2012, London, UK – Samsung Mobile UK today announced it will be making Easy Phone Sync available for free to anyone purchasing a Samsung Galaxy device. Easy Phone Sync is a simple new way for people to transfer their iPhone and iTunes media – including music, videos, podcasts, pictures, contacts and text messages – to a Samsung Galaxy device including the new Galaxy S III.

As part of an exclusive licensing agreement with Media Mushroom Applications, Samsung is making Easy Phone Sync available for free for UK customers to transfer content from their iOS device to their Samsung Galaxy device in a few simple clicks. As well as being able to access DRM free content they have purchased from iTunes music, customers can continue to use iTunes software on their PC to manage their music, videos and podcasts and keep their Android device in sync with it.

Simon Stanford, Vice President, Telecommunications and Networks, Samsung UK and Ireland said: “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. 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.”

Easy Phone Sync is available to download now for both PCs and Macs in conjunction with an app for Samsung Android devices.

The "Google Phone" sounded too awesome to pass up, so I bought a G1. The rest is history. And yes, I know my name isn't Wilson.

  1. Last time I checked currently Samsung kies has the ability to transfer info from a ipad/iPhone data backup into a Samsung device. I saw the option on both my Mac and windows computer. Samsung has really learned from its competition.

    1. It works horribly.

  2. Part of the reason I’m switching to an android phone is so that I DON’T have to deal with iTunes anymore – no other application I’ve ever used has been such a pain in the ass to deal with, including the RAM it takes up slowing down every other process on my computer.

    1. It is pretty process heavy, isn’t it… Before I learned how to use ‘msconfig’ it would start up every time I turned on the computer. It was a Core 2 Duo, with 1GB of RAM. I really did not need that application opening up when I turned on my computer every day. Talk about a terrible experience.

  3. This is a great move on their end. However, I do often wish Sammy would stop focusing so much on Apple and focus on their own services/products .. like software updates, LTE compatible Exynos chips, fewer phone delays, etc ..

    1. Apple has been viciously attacking Samsung for “imitating” its look and feel. Samsung is hitting back, “Hey, iOS users! Look what we have for you! You’ll have so much more choice, functionality, and freedom with a superior Samsung device — and you’ll still be able to access your iTunes investment.”

      I think Samsung deserves a full-throated shout-out from the android community for this. Samsung and ASUS are trailblazing for everyone else.

  4. Says it is not available in my country with a Verizon Galaxy Nexus in the USA? Guess it is NOT for ALL Galaxy devices….

    1. The article and web site does say this is for UK customers. Yeah, I checked too…. no luck for my USA G’Nex (even though it’s a naturalized citizen – imported from the UK then flashed with takju).

  5. Good move by Samsung on that sense, horrible move by Samsung by insulting iPhone users and calling them sheep

  6. Unless it’s a USA thing, it won’t install on my GS3. Oh well, iSyncr still gets the job done for me.

  7. whats wrong with the way it is right now, Samsung is trying to fix something that is not broken, if anything iPhone user should be the ones to envy the way android sync their contacts and music.

  8. i still use itunes for my music. i can’t wait for this to hit the US.

    1. It looks like a rebranded Easy Phone tunes which is available in the US. And works on more than just Samsung devices.

  9. Great move Sammy
