There’s no denying that Samsung’s Kies software is buggy, resource hungry and not-so user friendly. Samsung is also aware of these facts and apparently will try to solve it with the next Kies version – Kies 2.
Samsung has released the beta version of Kies 2 and promises an all-new UI, faster sync, firmware upgrades and even adds a Music Store that will allow users to buy music. The new Kies now also supports importing of iTunes or Windows Media Player playlists.
The beta currently doesn’t support many devices so you might want to hold on before Samsung releases the final version.
