Awesome. One glitch Really nice. It is better than AirDroid even. The only thing is that on Win8.1, the computer software seems to change my taskbar property of auto-hide. I have it on auto-hide, but when I run SideSync, it disables it and I have to go in and reselect it. Fix this and I'll give 5 stars!

I once loved this app. But since I got the new update I can't link my galaxy pro tablet to my galaxy s6. Everytime I try and link the 2 I get a pop up side sync stopped working. I've tried to uninstall the app and reinstall it 3 times with no success.

SideSync Worked at the store but doesn't work now, so if it doesn't work then it's useless

This worked PERFECTLY before the update. Now, I can't sync my Galaxy S5 to my Galaxy Tab Pro 8.4. I really really REALLY NEED this to work. I have tried turning off and on both devices, turning off both Wifi and also restarting my Wifi. I have played with all the available settings and NOTHING IS WORKING. The devices cannot find the other device. I don't see anywhere that says that phone to tab is not possible, and I checked your list of compatible devices, but it was TERRIBLY OUTDATED and I can't find another one anywhere. All I find is stuff about SideSync 3.0 when I've checked both devices and they are running version 4.0.9.7 Please help. This feature is why I specifically brought the tablet and the phone.
