How to Move Files from Android to Mac? Android smartphones are not popular among macbook laptop users, as a person that uses Windows Phone, iPhone, and Sony Android Smartphones, I can safely say iOS has a friendlier user interface. Because Android phones are not popular among the niche macOS user, the manufacturer tend to focus on creating better Windows PC software for their users.
For those that have trouble using their manufacturer’s macOS software for transferring files between Android and macOS, here are 3 alternatives for your Samsung Galaxy Note, Nexus, HTC, LG and more.
↓ 01 – Android File Transfer
Browse and transfer files between your Mac computer and your Android device. You can move photos, music, and other files between your computer and phone or tablet with a USB cable. You can also move files from your device to a computer. You can upload music on your computer to your Google Play library using Music Manager. Browse the files and folders on your Android device and copy files up to 4GB.
↓ 02 – AirDroid
AirDroid allows you to access and manage your Android phone or tablet from Mac wirelessly. Calls, SMS, and the app notifications you allowed, mirrored to the large computer screen you are focused on. Control your Android from computer and use any apps on computer, like WhatsApp, WeChat, and Line. (root NOT required.)
↓ 03 – Handshaker
The usual method for transferring and managing files between Android and Mac systems has always been rather crude, and so we meticulously developed HandShaker to make managing content on your phone from your Mac easy and effortless. HandShaker intelligently organizes files on your phone by type, including photos, music, and video, and lets you edit files on your phone right from your desktop.
↓ 04 – Pushbullet Portal
Portal makes transferring pictures, videos, and other files from your computer onto your phone simple. Just grab the app, scan the code above, and then drop as many files as you want onto this site. We’ll get them onto your phone, and we’ll do it fast! Files are transferred over your WiFi connection. This means they don’t count toward your mobile data limit and that files are transferred very quickly (even if they’re over 1 GB in size). Have Android 5.0 (Lollipop) or newer and a removable SD card in your phone? Portal can save files to that removable SD card so you can get the most out of it (just tell us to in the Android app’s Settings).
