Samsung’s flagship device, the Samsung Galaxy S III, is filled with features that make it an outstanding device. However, it’s the excellent sharing capabilities of the device that’s grabbing all attention.
The device brings to you four sharing services to view media content across different platforms – AllShare Play, Group Cast, Share Shot, and Buddy Photo Share. Allshare Play almost resembles Apple’s AirPlay which allows users to play multimedia content among a number of devices.
The service helps you watch media content across devices if they are either DLNA capable or are AllShare enabled and are connected to the same Wi-Fi network.
Group Cast, the second in the line, is basically meant for users to interact with PDFs and other documents during instances like presentations.
AllShare Play is connected to Group Cast feature and enables easy sharing of media content among devices in an interactive way that helps users to flip through pages, make annotations and so on.
Share Shot is a unique service that allows users to upload pictures clicked by them on their S III to a select users’ devices, the moment they take pictures.
But this service will work only if the devices are connected to the same Wi-Fi network and Share Shot is selected as a shooting mode on your camera.
Buddy Photo share is also excellent with its ability to recognize the face of a person and add the contact info with it if he or she is in the user’s contact list. Though it is interesting, it may be annoying while viewing photos.
