Syncing Galaxy S3 with Mac and iPhoto

I have two questions:

1. How do I sync the Galaxy S3 with my Mac?
2. How do I sync it with iPhoto?

1. What do you mean sync it with you Mac? What do you want to sync exactly?

2. I'm not an expert on Android but I think you'll have to drag and drop. I don't think you'll be able to do a sync so that it updates automatically whenever you plug in your phone. I could be wrong though.

1. Syncing with Mac? Need more info. It's certainly not going to sync the way iPhone syncs with iTunes.

2. Sync with iPhoto: It should be recognized as a camera. Load iPhoto and select import frm camera. It should be available in the drop down.

Couple options:
Option 1:
Download Kies 2.0 for Mac from Samsungs website. Google search it.

This can take 10 minutes or more to install. Be patient. It has to install Samsung usb drivers, plus the program itself. Once done connect S3 with the UsB cable that came with the phone and the rest will be self explainatory.

Option 2:
Download Android File Transfer app on your computer. Follow steps to transfer files in the program. This is a drag and drop program, not a sync type program.

Option 3:
Go to Google Play store and download an app called isyncr. Follow the directions.

Such an awful app. I used it for 2 weeks and dreaded every moment I was using it. Kept crashing and was unresponsive a lot.

Thank you for taking the time to explain these options to me.

I'm using double twist, it sync's playlists, and can even airplay video to appleTV, and is a podcast manager/downloader. downside is it's fairly pricey for all the features at 10.

This app with the associated desktop client would be the easiest way. It doesn't work yet with the North American version of the S3 though (hopefully soon.)

USB PC connection settings

under USB PC connection, choose the camera option instead of the media device option, and then the phone will show up as a device in iPhoto. Then you can import, etc, although it may not automatically sync
