If you are looking for Kies, you have come to the right place. We explain what Kies is and point you to the official download.

What is Kies?

The Samsung Kies (pronounced as “keess”) is a mobile application that Samsung uses exclusively for their electronic devices which allow these devices to communicate with each other and even to a computer which has Kies installed on it. This is a relatively new application, since most Samsung smartphones, tablets and other such similar devices come with Kies installed (or can run the application, in the case of older models who don’t have it out of the box and must be downloaded and installed to). The Samsung Kies can be downloaded from the Samsung Global Download Center or from the tools and utilities specific to that Samsung device.

The Samsung Kies was first designed for and introduced with the Samsung Wave, the first Samsung touchscreen smartphone, and was later incorporated into later models. Today it supports the Samsung Galaxy series of smartphones and tablets, the Omnia smartphones, the Infuse 4G smartphone, the Samsung Corby series, and the Samsung Hero.

The Samsung Kies however has been met with poor critical reception, with users complaining of its buggy features, non-intuitive interface, and frustrating performance. Samsung users advise others to opt for better and less bloated third-party software instead for backups and synchronizing purposes.

Download Kies from the developer does not provide software hosting. We send you directly to the developer's site, to make sure you download the latest, original version of the program.
