Apple doesn’t offer any built-in option to connect Mac with Android devices, so Android File Transfer by Google is probably the first software Mac users with Android phones install when it comes to syncing data between these devices.
But even though Android File Transfer is developed to transfer data between Android and Mac, it doesn’t work correctly with these devices and hasn’t been updated since 2012.
So is there any Android File Transfer alternative? The only solution we can vouch for and advise is SyncMate. It allows you not only to connect Android as Mac disk, but also to sync data between Android and Mac applications directly.
Give us a few minutes and we’ll convince you that SyncMate is worth your time and attention.
To start with, SyncMate is an app for syncing and transferring data between Mac and Android devices. To say even more, SyncMate supports a great variety of devices for synchronization and is simply indispensable thanks to its multiple versatile possibilities.
Android file transfer alternative
Thanks to the option of mounting your Android phone as a Mac disk, you get to browse its contents in Finder as well as manage conveniently. Copy or remove files from Android directly on Mac by simple drag-n-drop.
Doesn't that sound wonderful?
Finder functionality on your Android
Everything you are so used to be doing in Finder with your Mac drives, can be as easily done with your Android device: copy or transfer several folders simultaneously, archive a batch of files and so on.
Sync Contacts and Calendars
Let's face it, Android and Mac are not as perfect of a pair as Mac and iPhone, so it is not as easy to synchronize contact info and calendar events between the two. Well, it wasn't easy before SyncMate - now it is a breeze! With this Android File Transfer alternative you can sync all new and edited events as well as contacts between your phone and computer.
