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.
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.
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.

Have you ever try to download large files from the internet and get stuck with the never-ending download process?
I know. All of us have been there. The best way to download really large files is to do it with a download manager. It allows you to download any kind of file without getting worried about the slow internet or file size.
For windows, we all know that IDM is the best solution as a download manager. But unfortunately, there wasn't anything like that for the Mac operating system before the Folx. It's a great app and the best alternative solution to download heavy files from the internet as well as the best uTorrent alternative for Mac.
Folx is in fact, primarily two software packed as one. It can act as an internet download manager as well as your torrent client for daily use. The downloader allows you to download any file of any size from the internet whereas the torrent client lets you search for torrents directly from the Folx interface.
In-built torrent search is a premium feature that comes with the pro version only. That means you don't have to access or search through multiple torrent trackers to find exactly what you need. Just type the keyword in the Folx search bar and it will present you the results extracted from multiple trackers supported by Folx.
It's a powerful, easy-to-use, and free download manager fully optimized for the latest macOS Catalina. The current version of the Folx app is 5 and requires at least macOS 10.9 or later to use.
Folx offers a true Mac-style interface, highly optimized for Retina display. Despite being free, it offers some heavy professional features of premium software. Folx is developed by Eltima Software, a global software development company, specializing in mobile and desktop software for Mac OS, Windows, Linux, and Android operating systems since the year 2000.
Folx has a sleek and very comprehensive design that remains easy to navigate despite being a full-featured software. Folx splits downloads into simultaneous threads to speed up the download process. It auto-resumes downloading in case the internet connection was broken and allows you to add new download tasks in several ways.
With the pro version, each download can split in up to 20 threads that make the whole file downloading process much faster. The overall downloading speed depends on your internet bandwidth as well.
With Folx you can tag your store downloaded files. The downloaded files are saved into folders according to the tags you have assigned. You can assign multiple tags to each download that makes it easier for you to identify the file in the future. As being a download manager, it allows you to manage your download files based on bandwidth allocation, priority, etc.
Folx is fully compatible with popular browsers like Safar, Firefox, Opera, and Chrome. You can configure Fox to catch download links in these browsers or you can install a special Folx extension that allows Folx integration into your browser's context menu. Once you have installed the extension, there will be new menus available to you - "Download with Folx", "Download All with Folx", and "Download Selected with Folx".
Folx understands the importance of security and privacy and therefor uses a proxy server that lies between your Mac and the internet. It offers other advantages like bandwidth saving for large networks or control of internet usage. You may also configure some proxy settings like proxy type, server name, etc.
Why you should buy the Folx Pro?
There is no restriction or limit on the number of downloads you can do with the free version. You can download and use the free version of Folx forever. However, if you need more advanced stuff like multi-threading, much faster downloading, music integration, smart speed adjustment, etc, you need to pay a very minimal price for the license.
The pro version comes with several premium features like multi-threading downloading, speed adjustment, creating an Apple Music playlist, etc. You can also download and save the videos being hosted on Youtube in video or mp3 format with the pro version.
With the pro version, you don't have to remember passwords for different websites and FTP servers. Folx pro offers a built-in password manager to safely store your password so you don't need to enter login credentials every time you are downloading from the website.
The fee comes in two variants - personal license ($19.95) and family pack ($39.95). You can get lifetime upgrades for just $9.95 and urgent support plan, in case you need it, for $15 per year.
Redmi K30 has some impressive specs for a phone that costs only $230. The device is powered by a Snapdragon 730G processor from Qualcomm, a 4500mAh battery with 27W fast charging. For display, it uses IPS LCD with 120Hz refresh rate. This is one of the cheapest 5G phones you can buy right now, but of course, this 5G supports depends on the availability of the 5G network in your area. With a 4500mAh battery, you can expect to deliver an incredible battery life. But due to a higher refresh rate, you may found yourself charging after a half-day. On an average day, it can get about six hours. If you degrade the refresh rate to 60Hz, it will surely save some battery life.
The display is a 6.67-inch 1080 pixel display panel. You won't get the pure black and white if you go for less display but that doesn't mean the screen is bad. The Redmi K30 has four cameras on the rear side, and the two on the front. There's the new 64MP Sony IMX686 - a direct successor to the popular 48MP IMX 586, an ultrawide 8MP sensor, a 2MP macro camera, and a 2MP depth sensor. For the front camera, you get a 20MP lens and a 2MP depth sensor. The selfie camera produces sharp pictures in good light, but the flat color profile doesn't look natural on skin tones. If you are a big selfie person, you may want to apply some kind of filter before sharing these online. In low light circumstances, you will see a decent amount of smearing. Although the phone has a decent portrait mode that produces much sharper pictures.
The Redmi K30 is running MIUI 11, based on Android 10. MIUI is fairly customizable, but many Western users probably won't like it as much, especially if you're used to stock Android, as it tries to act like iOS in a lot of ways. By default, there is no app drawer, though you can turn it on in settings. The most annoying thing for me is the fact that you need to press a settings button to get into the settings. There is a cool feature on the Redmi K30 called Mi Share, which allows you to seamlessly transfer files between other Xiaomi, Vivo, Realme, and Oppo devices. This is effectively Apple's AirDrop, so it's nice that these manufacturers have worked together to make file transfer a lot easier.
Who hasn't heard about TikTok? It is one the most popular streaming apps right now. Its parent's company - a Chinese IT firm is planning to take a step into the smartphone manufacturing industry as well. ByteDance, whose $75 Billion valuation ranks it one of the world's biggest start-up plans to launch a phone pre-loaded with its own apps - which include newsfeeds, video and gaming apps to reach out more global audience. This move is seen by many as an initiative by Chinese companies to rely on their own services, software, and hardware after the US ban. ByteDance is one of very few companies from china who has global audience in Asia and west, other than its home country.
Earlier than this, Amazon has tried similar effort but it was pulled a year after launch due to its disaster failure. Analysts predict ByteDance phone could have a similar outcome. Analyst Jia Mo said, there is basically no space for them in the mass market. They lack experience and advantage in supply chain, in channels, so their likelihood of being successful is very low, he further added. If they target only the niche market, may be they have a chance by attracting niche customer groups through certain pre-installed software.
Bytedance's own international expansion has helped the company to acquire its lip-syncing Musical.ly app in 2017. But despite racking up huge number of downloads- it was fined by the Federal trade commission for illegally collecting personal information from users younger than 18 years. Wang Xi, research manager said that may be they could have a chance if they offer something new and at lower price. He said, So if they really will go down this path, I think they will probably let hardware lose money in the beginning and try to make up through their service later.
