Do you wish to transfer files from Android to Mac or Mac to Android?


Don't worry. We have the perfect solution that offers smooth file transfer from either of these OS and so much more.


This may not come as a surprise to you but Mac OS doesn't work well with Android devices. If you use an iPhone or iPad, transferring files between your device and computer come with no hassle. To work with Android, you may need some kind of third-party cloud storage, but it is kind of slow. You upload files on the cloud-first and then download files from the cloud. It takes double effort as well.


Many people want a faster and easier solution rather than uploading and download the same files. That's where MacDroid comes in handy that acts as a bridge to ensure Android file transfer for Mac operating system.


Connect Android to Mac via USB

With MacDroid you don't need any special cable or complicated cloud solution. It will work seamlessly whenever you connect your Android device to your Mac computer via USB.


Once the MacDroid is installed, open it. Go to Devices in its main menu and connect your Android device to Mac.


As soon as the device is a plugin, choose ADB (Recommended) or MTP connection mode and follow all steps to allow your computer access to your Android data. After the connection is complete, find the device in the Finder folder and transfer data between the device and the Mac.


Software requirements


MacDroid operates as a bridge between Android and Mac. It offers the transferring of images, videos, music, and folders between Mac and Android. To use MacDroid you need at least macOS 10.10 or later. There is no strict requirement for Android or MTP devices.


Features


I have already described one feature of MacDroid that allows file transfer between Android and Mac by treating your Android device as an external hard drive for Mac device. But this isn't the only feature MacDroid has to offer.


You can also mount both internal and external storage on Android device. This allows you to read out the MicroSD card without getting it out of your device. You can also edit files on your Android device, without getting it to any other device. This can save you from lots of hassle of getting files onto and from the cloud storage or similar service to edit these files.


How to use MacDroid?


You don't have to install anything on your Android device. Just download and run MacDroid on your Mac and you are set to go. When you launch MacDroid for the first time, it will show you a simple interface with all its features and a simple walkthrough process to set up the Macdriod. To work with the software you need to enable USB debugging mode on your Android device. You can do so from the Developer menu. If your Android device doesn't have the developer menu in the settings app, you can enable it by tapping the build number in the software information or About the phone section of the settings app.



Once you have enabled USB debugging, it will prompt you to plug your device in. You will see an interface that would ask you if you want to use USB Debugging, so select, "Always for this Computer". Macdroid takes it from this step and make the phone available in the Finder.


Why you should buy the pro version?

 

MacDroid comes with 7-days free trial. The pro version is available at just $1.67 per month. With the trial version, you can only transfer files from your Android device to Mac and not from the Mac to Android. The pro version allows you to transfer files between Android and Mac in both directions.


You can also edit files in place right on your Android device with the pro version. In addition to this extra feature, you also get regular updates and patches.
