    Hey guys, I got a quick question for you.... I just got a Charge a few days ago, and I was wondering if someone could give me a few quick pointers on how to transfer music, photos, and videos to and from the charge to my macbook?

    I was able to get a few photos over via the usb cable and clicking through the files I on the drive that mounted. But with all that I've been hearing about Kies air etc, I figured that there must be a more convenient way of doing this...

    I understand that there is a Kies beta for mac, but I have no idea on how to even get the app or (any samsung apps for that matter) on to my charge.
    Someone please enlighten my clueless ass! thanks

    Just got the app loaded up on the charge and my mac, seems very quick and simple. Thanks for the recommendation!

    I'm on a PC and I use DoubleTwist to sync music, videos, and photos from my PC to my Droid Charge. There is a Mac version of DoubleTwist.

    Combined with DoubleTwist AirSync (you have to buy that on the Android Marketplace), I never connect my Droid Charge to my PC. If I want to transfer music, videos, or photos from my PC I simply load up DoubleTwist and copy the media over my home WiFi connection. Good thing about it is if you have any playlists in iTunes DoubleTwist can import those playlists.

    Not only that, but DoubleTwist on the Droid Charge makes for one heck of a media player that in my opinion is the best media player for the Android out there.

    I couldn't get DoubleTwist to sync my music AT ALL, so I gave up. In the end it doesn't really matter for me, b/c I use my iPod for the gym- I would never use my phone for this.

    I like the fact that the phone does nearly everything I could ever want in one neat small package. The only thing it doesn't do is make me breakfast in the morning.

    Hmm interesting because with Windows 7 you can just sync with bluetooth and its effortless.
