Mac/Android: Transfer files through USB (via: Nexus Help)

Posted by jpluimers on 2014/03/31

Too bad a Mac – no matter the OS X version – does not interoperate out of the box with Android like a Windows machine does.

On a Mac you need Android File Transfer to access the Android storage from your Mac.

This transfer app is very fast though and is way easier to use than doubleTwist.

From the Nexus help:

Mac OS transfer

  1. Install Android File Transfer from www.android.com/filetransfer, and follow the instructions there. (If you are using Android File Transfer for the first time, double-click it to open it. After the first connection, it opens automatically whenever you connect.)
  2. Connect your phone to your computer with a USB cable. Android File Transfer starts, if it’s not already running, and opens a window that displays the contents of your phone, along with storage space details at the bottom of the window.
  3. Work with this window much as you do in the Finder window: open and close folders, create new folders, and drag files to or from it and other Finder windows.
  4. Disconnect the USB cable when you finish.
