Browse Android data from Mac

As there is no native option to mount Android phones and tablets on Mac to browse Android content in Finder, you'll need a third-party app to achieve this. Think SyncMate!

SyncMate Expert lets you mount Android devices as Mac disks to access their content (internal and external storages) from Finder. All folders and files on Android are accessible: you can view, copy, manage images (photos, chat images or downloaded ones), videos, music, downloaded files, etc.
