Sometimes, something so traumatic happens to the human body that a person undergoes a complete personality shift. The girl who was, before, a model member of the Christian league gets hit by a car suddenly becomes promiscuous and violent. The good-natured guy who helps everyone has a wrench fall on his skull from fifty feet and becomes a drug-addicted psychopath. And the alpha businessman who is in a car crash goes from trading on Wall Street to rambling incoherently and exposing himself on subway platforms.
It’s sad, but it happens, and Samsung wants people who have been unfortunate enough to undergo such mental trauma ending in a complete personality shift to know that they’ve got a friend in them. That’s the only explanation for the Korean manufacturer’s latest play: an app for the deranged minds who are switching from the iPhone to a Galaxy smartphone.
The app is called Easy Phone Sync, and it helps people who are currently locked into an iOS device to transfer their iTunes and iOS data to their new Galaxy smartphone or tablet.
The app, which works through USB, will transfer your iTunes contacts, messages, videos, photos, podcasts, playlists and even music from your computer to your new Galaxy device. You just need to download the app from the Google Play store, then download the accompanying software on the Mac or PC.
It’s nice, of course, to have an option to migrate your data if you’re switching from an iPhone to Samsung device… but seriously, how often does that happen?
