Advanced Android File Transfer App for macOS​

Transferring files between macOS and Android or any other MTP devices has always been a nightmare. There are a few File Transfer MTP apps which are available online but most of them are either too expensive or come with bad UI/UX. The official "Android File Transfer" app for macOS from Google comes with bugs, innumerable limitations, some of which include - not being able to transfer files larger than 4GB, frequent disconnections, unable to rename the folders or files on the android/MTP devices. Most of the other apps available online uses either WiFi or ADB protocol to transfer the files, which is an extremely time-consuming process.

Countless searches to find an app to solve these problems and failing to find one made me restless. So, I took the leap and decided to create an app for us that could help us have a smooth and hassle-free file transfer process from macOS to Android/MTP devices. Created with the objective of giving back to the community, we can all use this app for free in this lifetime.

In the News: 'Android File Transfer' app for macOS has been hidden from
But, suddenly, Google has hidden that tool from the official Android website.

In any case, Android File Transfer isn’t gone. The app is still available here [1] and here [2].

Still, it’s strange to suddenly drop the link, especially with it happening pretty much simultaneously with Android 15’s launch. On that note, yes, the app does still work with devices running Android 15 and, yes, it’s also still required to access your files too.
