The worst software I ever used was…

What is the worst, the most poorly designed, buggiest, prone-to-breakdown, driver-devouring, update-eluding, the worst piece of crap application  you’ve ever see? It is hard to say, but lets be honest… Samsung PC Studio is the first candidate for this title…

Three years ago, I bought Samsung D900 mobile phone and I must admit that this phone is very good. I was worried about their slider mechanism. After hundreds slides it still works perfectly and I didn’t had any problems with this phone. I still use the original battery,  display works perfectly…. Ops… I forget that camera doesn’t work any more… I don’t know why… The picture is to dark and I can’t see anything.

But… If you want to manage your phonebook, messages or files directly from your computer, you’ll need Samsung PC Studio…. The app is so stupid and buggy that I can’t understand. I tried to use it on more than 5 different computers. Unfort. only once I made it. After first PC Studio update I could say bye-bye to my phone-PC relationship. Only option I had, was to transfer music and images to SD card and then to phone. Sometimes the error was that I can see folders but I can’t delete them, or I can’t upload anything, or the computer simple don’t see phone, or everything works fine but my phone book is unavailable, unreadable, bla bla…

Luckily, bluetooth on the phone works fine so I finally made a phone book backup.

Few days ago, I bought the brand new Samsung i5700 Spica with Android… Fantastic piece of the hardware but to install USB drivers, I should first install “NPS” or in other words New PC Studio…. Oh my dear… This app has completely different approach. Design is so stupid that I’m not sure whats the main purpose. Is this game? Cartoon? Spyware? Some icons flying around, desktop inside desktop, sound which irritates you (yes, some of us don’t like stupid sounds in the middle of the night). Sure, if you’re 11 years old, this can look interesting but…

Of course, the install procedure on Win7 64b wasn’t successful and USB drivers are not installed properly (even when I run them in XP or Vista compatibility mode)…

I know that some of you don’t think like my opinion, but the Samsung developers can be candidate for the worst in the world. Their software designers seems like they came from the past (or future, I’m not sure). All people around me, have the same opinion. All of them had some kind of problems with Samsung PC studio.

  1. This blog sums up my thoughts exactly on NPS. Even the installer is annoying, playing horrible sounds until I could find the mute button. I have tried to install NPS on several computers and virtual machines and have still not managed to update my firmware.

  2. I forget to say that I tried NPS on XP SP3… Same distance, same gun = the same shit… Error this, error that, …

  3. if you are here by typing on google “stupid samsung pc suite” then you are a samsung phone owner…

    just try to send a long sms (more than 160 ) and see …
