Why not manage your mobile device via your 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:

1. Connect the mobile device and the PC or laptop to the same access point (Wi-Fi router)

2. Open Kies Air on the mobile device and tap Start

3. Kies Air on the mobile device will display a URL. Enter the URL in the browser on the PC or laptop

4. 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

5. 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):

1. Connect both mobile devices (A and B) to the same access point (Wi-Fi router)

2. Open Kies Air on device A and tap Start

3. Open Kies Air on device B and shake the device twice. This will start a scan for device A

4. Device A will appear on the screen of device B. Tap on device A

5. 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.

  1. BRUCE DJP-avatar

    1. I - Phone cannot be connected 2. in some samsung phone we cannot transfer our contacts directly to phone. please check your software.

  2. A Google user-avatar

    download I absolutely love this app. If you come across some negative reviews, they were most likely written cause that person either has an incompatible phone or just doesn't know what their doing. This app makes transferring almost everything to your PC super easy. You are even able to delete most files after transfer. You can even upload files. Perfect app at a perfect price(FREE!!!!).

  3. Tony Watson-avatar

    windows 10 The first time I used it it worked great. Now out won't let me move files to my computer. My explorer is up to date and so is Java but every time I try and move files it says I need to update Java and then says the security certificate for Kis is invalid and terminates the app. It logs right back in and I can see all my files but can't transfer them...

  4. Dennis Cone-avatar

    mac download My phone is the Samsung Note 1. This app worked but now it won't even show up as one of the apps installed on my phone even though it is. I can make the connection to windows 8.1 but the Java certificate is not valid and won't allow data transfer between devices. So right now it is worthless.

    apk I just installed this today, Jan 3rd, 2014 and it still has the ssme problem reported many times last May. It does not display a pin to put in the browser to connect. That makes Kies Air useless on my Note 10.1 The issue was not fixed as the update note states.

  6. A Google user-avatar

    windows Download all pictures doesn't work. Don't know why but it seems that I'm not the only one having this trouble. Please fix this, as this app is my favorite app when it comes in transferring numerous pictures into my pc. Thanks! Act now, if possible. ASAP. ~thankfully. This is now fixed. Deserves 5 stars!!

  7. Ammie Nelson-avatar

    message This is a great way to back up your phone. I uninstalled an app from goggle and lost all my contacts and the use of my dialer. If I had this program and backed up my phone it would have saved everything so I could reset to original settings to get the original apps needed to run my phone. :)

  8. Jeff Arnold-avatar

    mac Not to be confused with Kies Via Wi-Fi, _this_ app (Kies Air) turns your device until a web server, allowing you to read your call log, access multimedia, send / receive SMS messages, and more from a web browser on just about any other device. Works well! My only complaint is that its name is too similar to the sync client (Kies Via Wi-Fi), which caused me rather a lot of confusion when I first got my Note.

  9. Grady Yearwood-avatar

    for windows 7 Since the OS upgrade to 4.3 everything Samsung seems caught in a loop of "This device does not support this software version..." "This software version does not support this device..." There are supposedly fixes available but neither the device nor available software can get there from here. HTC took a long fall from the top due to similar lackings in quality of support for it's products.

  10. Shaun Henning-avatar

    alternative Constant conflict with Java and security, UI is banal and unfriendly, can't make new folders, won't run from desktop shortcut. Easier to pop the back off my phone and insert sd card into pc than using this app.

  11. Stephen Salkin-avatar

    Kies air has no documentation. Just a browser screen and no way to access my PC even though they are connected. How do I move files and play media. Samsung did a great job with the hardware. To bad the software support sucks. I'm only giving it a two because it actually connects to my network.

  12. David Leis-avatar

    I would suggest Samsung developers buy a BlackBerry & try the Desktop application. I own 2 Samsung cells and 2 Samsung tablets so I like their products. BUT Keis is immature and basic. It cannot sync Outlook contacts, calendar, tasks and media. I have to use Myphoneexplorer app to do that and it has bugs. Someone at Samsung must want to use their products for business, surely? Please include Outlook sync capability like Blackberry.

    Finally I use this app and it informs me I need to install java, so I do.after all that I reopen app & now I get a security warning about using java. My computer now says it could not load language and froze. Thank you kies for all your hard work and taking pride in your product ...It shows.

    Problems started with java issu, now it's network recognition... It keeps bouncing back to the network settings although it's connected. Useless for me, older versions were working perfectly well.

  15. A Google user-avatar

    It says there's an update, but when I try to update it it says there's an error. Help! :\ #941 error code. samsung galaxy epic on android...* Never heard from anyone to help with this issue. I wrote this review over a year ago, with no reply, EVER. That sure is GREAT customer service.....NOT!!!

    Although the idea behind this app is amazing it would be nice if it worked. Keeps telling me I have an old version of Adobe flash player and I need to install java. I have both up to date and can't upload or download multiple files. Just fix the bugs and make it work properly.

  17. George Harter-avatar

    Just trying to download multiple pictures from my phone to computer. Kies app keeps telling me I need to install Java when it is already installed. Even reinstalled Java, still fails. Come on Samsung, give your customers an easy way to backup their data!

    First it was'nt recognising java n only allowed single file transfers of upto 100mb after the last update of kies or java?? now java is actively blocking it!! Disappointing that Samsung is so lax in updating their apps n keeping them in proper working order... Really as someone else was saying kies could be a sweet one stop backup n transfer app with some work n maybe Samsung could even integrate a store with it like ftunes (hint hint) selling music, books apps etc....

    All it does is put me in an endless loop off putting pin on pc. Opens once then every time I try and use it it asks me for pin on pc and restarts. Airdroid way better.

  20. Wiley Williams-avatar

    Wow a great way to transfer my pics (came preloaded on my galaxy). Connected transferred a few pics picked up phone and went to the store thinking it was pretty cool. Then I look down and it says sd card BLANK. Thanks a lot all vids pics and more are gone. You suck kies air

    Not working after updating latest version. Keeps prompting to connect wifi which already connected. Tap back switches wifi to OFF. What happen there? It was wotking well previously. This version affect S4 and Note3.

  22. Ryan Marzolph-avatar

    Could not be more counter intuitive and needlessly frustrating. i hate that it uses Java which is constantly needing an update and it gives me no way to organize folder structure. hell, i can't even upload whole folders of music. i like to keep my files organized i guess that's a problem. i finally found airdroid which does all the same things but is better in every way and looks better too. seriously i can't believe i suffered through using it as long as i did.

  23. Laura Wagoner-avatar

    Why can't you people leave stuff the way it is when it works fine. I updated the app the other night and now it wont recognize the device on my computer it tells me I have to go on the internet and download the software which I cannot do because it's no longer on my computer now. there is no way to unnstall the update there is no way for me to do anything now its just stuck.you know this his our only form of the internet yeah that's right we tether so I will probably have to do a factory reset on myphone

  24. Jan Popiden-avatar

    Ap worked long enough for me to lose some audio files from my Samsung Galaxy III. Now the ap doesn't even show up on my phone. When I search Google Play for the Ap it doesn't show up.

  25. Billy Knight-avatar

    This used to be a great app. But today it has stopped working, so I uninstalled it and tried to download and install it again from Google Store. However, it is now incompatible with ALL my devices including the Samsung Galaxy SII mobile phone that I have just uninstalled it from after a few years use. Disappointing as it was a good app to use. Possible NPAPI or Java issue?

    I can no longer send emails from the new version of Kies Air! I have a Mac and have lost a lot of the features from the previous version that I really liked. It's very frustrating.

  27. Brenda Morris-avatar

    Awesome! Took me a minute but figured out after Some confusion) may be the same for a lot. Don't "upload" but when transferring your files, photo's,videos and music files you choose "download". I did the same thing at first.....several times. It made sense to me to upload the files from my tablet to my computer but in this case, you have to choose download and then the files will transfer easily. I have needed this for a long time. The Tablet doesn't come with the transfer capability. Been driving me crazy

  28. Justin Houston-avatar

    This app may be crappy, but it did save me when the latest Android Jelly Bean update bricked my Sprint GN2. It was an official OTA update that didn't take for some reason. Sprint wanted a $150 insurance deductible because my screen is cracked. As a last resort I hooked my phone to my laptop and did an emergency firmware recovery. Lost all the stuff on my phone, but it worked and my phone is working again! So it's good for something I guess...

  29. Brian MacKay-avatar

    Samsung needs to catch up with reality. Java gets updated constantly, but this app tells me I need to update Java to download multiple files...been there, done that, kies doesn't work properly...delete.

    Each time i type the url in the address bar of my laptop's browser, the resultant page comes out to be 'Page Cannot Be Displayed'.. Otherwise, its a cool software to use.

  34. Troy Parish-avatar

    Samsung Galaxy S4 Active user here who once was able to easily plug in my USB cable and easily access all of my files. Apparently Kies is the only way to access these files from now on. Having to view all of my files online takes extra long (thumbnails are miniscule in size) and I have a terrible time not being able to move; reorganize items. Having all my files online seems to be a vulnerability/security liability. I never have written a complaint but this is ridiculous with having to give up my MTP/usb

    Easily the most annoying app ever. Java updates send the app crazy every time. After updating, I get 'Install java to download multiple files'. Yeah I just did and now nothing works!!!! Now I can't transfer multiple files again and it makes this app a waste of mine & everyone's time!

  36. Bruce Moore-avatar

    I could not get the web browser version to work on Linux, and had a lot of difficulty getting it to run under Internet Explorer on Windows. At one point IE told me that it wouldn't work at some point in the future because support of .jar files without a manifest was going to be discontinued in the future do to security issues. You can't select all items in music..."all" only picks up the items in the current window. It will display SMS messages, call logs, calendar entries and contacts, but won't back them up. With relatively little work, it would be a great one-stop backup tool, but it isn't complete and needs some maintenance to boot.

    I just downloaded the new update last night and I can get all the way to the screen where I have to enter the pin number displayed on my phone, and when I hit enter, it loads just a gray screen and keeps automatically reloading and getting the same thing. Very disappointed with this update. All of my software is up to date on my windows 7 ultimate laptop and on my phone so it is definitely a problem with the application. From my Galaxy SIII

  38. Dave M-avatar

    Used this app a lot but recently I can't upload multiple files at once due to a java bug. I have latest java installed and use Google Chrome but the phone software won't recognise it and just throws up an error. In the end I had to abandon it and use good old USB mass storage making it an utterly useless app, till it's fixed.

  39. Luke Harlow-avatar

    This will get 5 stars from me as I use this often but this bug that's developed is really annoying. Trying to share and back up and the system just crashes. Fix this bug and you'll get 5 stars. But otherwise usually a perfect app to use, very easy and simple.

  40. Ronald Kramer-avatar

    Note 3 user. Seemed it worked well when I had my note 2. Never have been able to see any files yet using the note 3. Computer connects, but does nothing after that but say please wait. Please fix what was a good app.

  41. Timothy Wales-avatar

    I can't download anymore because it says Java not installed. Java is installed and it still fails in Chrome. I does not show the go button after entering the pin. It would be 5 stars if it worked consistently.

  42. Lindsay King-avatar

    Worked with the app running on PC and phone. The new version using the web browser is crap. Will not let me download multiple files. Tells me to update Java but Java is up to date. Tried it on three browsers.

    My Galaxy III is supposed to have the latest operating system updates, per the phone, but when I try to use this app I get a message that my operating system is not recognized. I thought that this was a Samsung app useable with the Galaxy III.

    Java says its a security issue and u need the plug in to transfer files online. Certificate used to identify this app has expired or the digital signature for the app has expired....please fix. Then 5 stars .. new java update 51

    I really love the functionality and convenience of this application. Unfortunately the most recent Java version blocks computer access. Anyone else having this issue? Does it get fixed via java or kies air?

  46. Joe Ellison-avatar

    The save dialogs are totally non-standard to the Mac interface, and not quite standard to the Windows interface. This makes navigating to the correct place to download files from the phone to the computer annoying at best, impossible at worst. Every few minutes the connection fails, leaving downloads uncompleted. Just took 2 hours to generate a list of files in the file explorer view, then crashed. Loathsome, awful, terrible app. I'd give it 0 stars, or perhaps negative 5, if only I could.

  47. darren walker-avatar

    This app worked fine, but too many updates and now I can't transfer music from my phone to my computer or vice versa. Will not purchase another Samsung phone ever again.

  48. Mike W.-avatar

    LATEST UPDATE: I hate this new update, it was so much easier before the update. Before I was able to open the app on my phone & open the other one on my computer & it woul pop up in it's own tab. Now I have to open the app on my phone, type in the I.P. address & then type in the 4 digit code. What sense does this extra security steps make? if someone is able to get in my phone what does it matter at that point if they go into KIAS AIR? If they wanted to do something malicious they can do it right from me ph

  49. Nancy Carolyn-avatar

    Update has made this application way too hard to use, originators need to reconsider and make this app simpler for connecting two devices. I will probably delete the app . It has just become too hard to use

I have the latest version but I'm getting a Java Security Alert saying "Certificate has been revoked. This application will not be executed".

    It's been well over an hour, trying to get this app to work. The directions are unclear; the app times out; it's slow. The list can go on and on. I'm new to Galaxy and Samsung, and this app is making me sorry I ever left Apple (NEVER thought I'd say that). Don't risk having a virtually unusable phone because there is no easy or convenient way for it to talk to your PC.

  52. Jim Carter-avatar

    Very useful app! Allows me to view the entire contents of my Galaxy Note II on my Windows 8 desktop PC. I can manage files (delete, copy, etc.). My contacts are available in addition to my calendar, music, etc. While charging my phone upstairs, I can utilize the file contents in my downstairs shop once customer interaction concludes for the day. Very handy for this busy, mobile PC technician! Those complaining about errors could use my services for their unhealthy PCs.

  53. Sharon Lazarus-avatar

    Until I got a new laptop with windows 8.1 java and kies air worked perfectly and I was very impressed with it as it saved me loads of time and effort in downloading and uploading everything I wanted on my Samsung and now it it is driving me up the wall as it keeps saying that java(TM) plug in needs to be installed everytime I want to do multiple downloads. I have installed and re-installed thinking I had done something wrong but no it keeps saying the plug in needs to be installed. I've gone from very impressed to not impressed at all. Until this issued is resolved I will not be using this program even if using USB cable is the only way as using it this way is not what I wanted from this program as it stops me from downloading/uploading things away from the house

  54. AJ Mccurdy-avatar

    i have been using this app for years but now it has been nothing but a pain in the butt. says that the licence has been revoked and that i have the previous version of flash player installed even tho i know that i have the latest version installed.

  55. Tony Savage-avatar

    Absolute waste of time. It can take 5-10 minutes to get Kies Air to fully open as there's Java errors and the meaningless "Cannot read language" error. Other times it will connect straight away. Thanks to a recent tip on here have installed AirDroid.

  56. Tj Write-avatar

    Had lots of trouble uploading from my new Mac Air to my Samsung G4. Kept crashing. Had to u uninstall and reinstall multiple times.

    I received a Android update the other day and after that was installed on my phone i can no longer send text messages from my computer using KIES AIR,,, KIES needs to put out an update to enable the sending of text messages from the computer through KIES air. Other than this NEW problem, i love this APP

  58. Ben Delville-avatar

    If you try and transfer more than one file you will get a Java error, even if you have the latest Java installed and up to date.

  59. Andre Bonnet-avatar

    Really excited to use this program, however after the second time of streaming content from my Galaxy to my ipad, the server no longer show up. Tried on other devices and other networks with no success.

  60. Danny Castano-avatar

    I was trying to use the feature where I text by using my laptop. I thought this feature will be handy while charging my phone next to a power outlet and without having to pick the phone up everytime I needed to see a text or reply to one specially from distance since power cord is short. And afyer a few texts the stupid feature block all outgoing messages (text) the only fix I found was to restart the galaxy s3. Java needs a lot of work since its beginnins.

  61. Rob Maly-avatar

    Is zero stars not an option? Before this app, I could usb my phone and navigate like it was a folder on my computer. Now, usb connect doesnt work, forcing me to use cumbersome wifi that a still can't simply drag and drop unless java is involved and i have yet to be able to complete a transfer of movies via wifi. Worse, my phone won't let me uninstall from my gs3.

  62. Sean Wendt-avatar

    Sorry, but I'm not going to install Java. Running Java on any platform is a major security risk. Shame on Samsung for encouraging their customers to put themselves at risk of malware.

  63. T Reich-avatar

    Love this essential app. A "must have", for those who need updating, restoring, and fixing issues (if they happen to arise). This app stores what ever apps & setting preferences you have in your phone. Who could as for anything better, which makes data transfers easy! :-)

  64. Jeff Clevenger-avatar

    I needed to transfer over 4000 files and was having a hard time with Airdroid failing and locking up. Figured I'd give this a try but was reluctant because of all the hate it apparently gets by reviewers. For me it transferred everything flawless without even the slightest hiccup so that makes it worthy of 5 stars. The interface, despite critics, was very easy to use and figure out. Not bad at all, will use this over Airdroid until it gives me a reason not to.

  69. Brian Miller-avatar

    I have to reinstall Java every single time I want to transfer more than one song. 2/3 of the time, the webpage won't load. Easily the worst part about this phone and Samsung. For a pre-installed program that the phone prompts you to use, it is insanely frustrating and infuriating.

    I really love this App. It is great. This app gives you ability to sync your phone to your computer without the hassle of the cords. This is probably one of the best apps on the market. It does use wifi but who does not have wifi now a days. Download this app use it you will not be sorry. It made hooking a android up to a mac device very easy.

  77. Ajaybir Singh-avatar

    It works good for me but when I open in my browser it takes time for the JAVA permission to pop up. sometimes it doesn't even show up . But most time it work good. And people you MUST have java install and I recommend use google chrome . It WON'T WORK on INTERNET EXPLORER .

  79. Caleb Busing-avatar

    KIES Air is by far better than any other mobile OS with similar ability if it is. This is a MANUFACTURER developed and supported feature which covers it all, even contacts utilisation. My most favourite is ability to send and receive SMS/MMS. I would suggest option to change how the conversation is displayed on the web interface such as conversation style instead of message by message. I would also allow the enter key able to be used as a option to send the message. Kudos to the Samsung gods for all this!

    there are so many useless apps that are pretty much forced upon us. this is one of them. I don't need apps that ive never heard of before and I found this one to run slow and just stop working. if there was a way to delete this app, because I don't want it nor need it, I would get rid of it

  84. Tom Fennell-avatar

    This app is such a failure that I'm astonished it's still around. It rarely works, as both my phone and the website sometimes has issues connecting. Somehow you're supposed to be able to plug the phone in for OS updates - I cannot get it to connect as the instructions match nothing I see on the page/phone. Now, when I'm trying to download some pictures (because you can't just plug the phone in and browse to them) THE SITE LICENSE HAS EXPIRED AND I CAN DO NOTHING. It wants to install Java, which I already have. I will root my phone to get rid of this rubbish. Developers and the company that preloads should be fired. Another argument against all the bloatware they think we need/want.

  86. Nita Younger-avatar

    Says java isn't installed and then that the security certificate has been revoked: "Application will not be launched" Something bad happened with the android 4.3 update. 3stars because I can't tell if it's this app or the os.

  88. Larry Goben-avatar

    This is a nice little app for a quick wireless transfer of a few files or photos, without having to get out the USB cable, when on your home network. Though for numerous file or folder transfers, it might be easier to just connect the cable.

    Ive tried to use kies air for years on many devices and it is junk. Regular Kies is ok is only reason I gave a one. Have not even been able to use kies air so I have no idea about it other than it will not work. When hooking via air wifi it tells you to enter url on PC but yet the url is invalid. Plain junk. You would think as much money as Samsung has they could come up with something better than this.

    looks a little childish and easy and in the ends its exactly that brutally easy after almost giving up on connecting my device to my pc someone recommended this program and it is truly one of the easiest programs i ever used its very handy and makes most of my stationary and mobile work compatible my phone is almost completly accessible and i can manage all files expect those of one particular program i dont use it that long so i may find this out soon aswell it may offers a platform for hackers luckily i dont use my phone for anything harmful to me

    Did the hand of man ever craft such a useless, slow, clunky, flawed application as this? It took ages to update its windows. It was impossible to work with the directory structure of my SD card. It told me that my flash player was out of date when Adobe said it wasn't. It wanted an up-to-date Java plugin for my browser, when the Java website said I had the latest. It sent me a javascript to set up a desktop link which Java rejected, because the certificate had been revoked. It was a brilliant idea, but so poorly executed that it was embarrassing. All I wanted was the ability to browse the file structure of my SD card, copy photographs to my PC; and synchronize my mp3 collection: in the same way that I could with the old Note 1. Now, at last, I can do this. Not with Kies or Kies Air, but with Side Sync 3.0 The sooner that this horrible app is forgotten, the better.
