2. doubleTwist for Huawei and Mac

doubleTwist is the app for syncing the media files between Mac OS X and Android devices. The Android client of the app keeps your media well organized, syncs and creates data backups. The interface is neat and friendly and if you only need to sync media files go for this app, however if you happen to need other data synchronization or backup, you might consider something with a broader feature spectrum.

3. Android File Transfer for Huawei and Mac

Android File Transfer is developed by Google for transferring of your files between your Apple computer and Android device. Getting an app like this for free is pretty cool, however there are downsides to this solution. It cannot sync personal data and won't transfer more than one file at a time.

4. Droid NAS for Huawei and Mac

This utility allows sharing folders over a wireless network, so that your Huawei device is visible as a Bonjour computer in Finder on your macOS. With its intuitive interface it is easy to work with SD card, Camera, Downloads, Music, and Photos folders. Droid NAS doesn't work with personal data like calendars and contacts and doesn't sync the files, rather just transfers them.

5. Cloud services for Huawei and Mac

And another way of keeping all in sync is using the ever accessible clouds. Using a cloud storage for synchronization of Mac OS X and Android device adds an extra participant, and a step, but can be rather efficient for many.


Dropbox is a very popular solution that allows impressive size of free storage and lets you get even more free storage for involving friends in using this service. Upload all sorts of files to your Dropbox account and download what you need on your macOS or Android device. Dropbox allows easy sharing of data with other people even if they don't have Dropbox accounts, however it is also not a true sync, it is rather backup - unpack solution.


Next cloud storage is SugarSync that also offers file transfer and sharing files with other people. A neat option it offers is the removal of all synced files from your computer in case it was misplaced.

The two above services unfortunately don't work with your calendars and contacts unlike the last one we are going to look at, namely Google Drive. It will not only upload files but will keep your contacts and calendars safe.

The apps and cloud services we reviewed here are all great and depending on what you want to sync or transfer we are sure you'll find a perfect match for your Mac and Huawei device.
