Hello, I would like to submit this idea for Samsung mobile devices to connect with Mac devices on top of being able to connect to Windows computers. Create an application for Mac devices that can be downloaded. This would be able to let Samsung users use Samsung devices seamlessly with Mac computers or laptops regardless of having a Samsung mobile device or an Apple mobile device. Some features could be included such as notifications, messaging, calling, seeing photos, and checking the battery on the application of your watch, buds, phone, etc. This could all work via Bluetooth or Wi-Fi connectivity.

Now why would Apple even allow that? The problem isn't Samsung or Android. The problem is Apple. They don't want you on an Android device.

The whole blue bubble vs green bubble wars are proof enough of that.

Link to Windows is made by Microsoft, not Samsung. There will never be made simular app made by Apple. I'm sorry.

It is a good business model for investors, but a bad user experience for customers.

I'm saying that Samsung should make an application to be installed by users on Mac devices to connect with Samsung galaxy mobile devices.

I realize that, but Apple would never allow you to install it.

Oddly enough, you can install Link to Windows, by Microsoft, on an iPhone.

Apple should just accept that it is competition. Its a fair game, maybe if Samsung pulls this, maybe Apple could do a similar move. But we all know they will whine about it and proceed to sue Samsung. But I think if Samsung pulled this, Apple would be able to do nothing. If Apple took it off they would receive a lot of backlash and this could be a lawsuit from Samsung. There are a lot of softwares though similar to Phone Link by Microsoft, one of them was made by Intel.

Really, they want you to join the Dark Side. With their Army of clone phones that look more and more like last year's model, "for security and reliability" of the galactic Apple Empire. To them, Android is the Rebel Alliance. And Windows Phones are the Jedi Order. "These are not the Androids your looking for."

So logically it would be better for Apple to enter into the compition of opening up there ecosystem then to start a war between Samsung and Apple.

Opening up their ecosystem doesn't make sense to Apple's bottom line and business model and history as a company. They're an aspirational corporation.

75% of phone users, ages 18-25, in the US are iPhone users. Those numbers aren't replicated in other countries. So their branding is an experience (ecosystem) that you can't get anywhere else. A brand that growing economies aspire to own. India, with a population over 1 billion is their growing market. They don't want you on an Android phone, they want you on an iPhone, connected to a Mac, wearing the AppleWatch.
