Using SideSync on my Samsung Galaxy Tab E 9.6
SideSync with a Mobile Device
From the Home screen, touch Apps.
Verify both devices are on the same Wi-Fi network and that SideSync is open on both devices.
Touch the name of the device you are syncing with.
Touch OK on the device to allow the connection.
When the two devices connect, the phone's notifications will display. Touch the Display icon to display the connected device's screen.
When mirroring your phone to your tablet, you can interact with it just as if your phone were in front of you. Touch Back to return to the Notifications view.
While SideSync is active, the mobile device's screen will remain blank. To use the mobile device, press the Home key on the device itself. At any time, touch SWITCH TO TABLET in SideSync to reconnect.
In the Notifications view, you can designate up to nine applications to add to your favorites at the top of the SideSync window. Touching any of these will switch SideSync to the screen view and open the application.
Touch Add to select the applications you want to display.
Mark the checkboxes on the applications you want to add. Touch ADD when you are finished.
If you have added more than five favorite applications, swipe to the left to view them all.
To delete a favorite application, touch red minus and hold any of the favorites icons. Then touch on the application you want to remove from favorites. Touch DONE when you are finished.
SideSync lets you drag and drop supported files between your device and the connected device. In the example below, we are copying photos from the phone's Gallery to the tablet. You can also move supported files from your tablet to your phone.
With the devices connected, touch View to view the phone's Home screen.
Touch Gallery and navigate to the photos you want to copy.
Touch MORE > Edit, and then mark the checkboxes on the photos you want to copy.
