Syncing Mac with Android directly using SyncMate
Syncing data between Mac and Android is not an easy task, although possible. For example, if you need to sync calendar events between Mac and Android, you can sync them from Mac to Google and from Google account to your Android after.
But what if you need to sync Mac calendar with Android directly, bypassing Google account (no Internet connection, for example)? SyncMate can do this for you. For free.

No matter what you need to sync - contacts, calendars, music, videos or even whole folders with files - SyncMate will sync it.
Below are simple steps that will help you with syncing Mac calendar with Android without Google.
