Whenever you want to transfer your Mac data to an Android, you simply connect it through a data cable and get the job done. But what if you don’t have a data cable? Or, you don’t want to go down by one of your USB ports? You may probably consider transferring data after sometime. However, you can turn your Android into a wireless flash drive for Mac by following these easy to do steps as Mac is a plug-and-play device:
- Download and install Pocketshare on your Android.
- Make sure that both devices are connected to the same Wi-Fi network.
- Launch the Pocketshare app on your Android. The server starts automatically.
- Go to Finders sidebar and choose your Mac under Devices.
- Through Finder, you can see a folder named ‘Pocketshare’; double-click on that file to open it.
- Now, to turn your Android into a wireless flash drive for Mac, simply drag and drop any file into the folder and it would be transferred to your Android automatically.
- Once done, launch Pocketshare and head to ‘Files’ tab and hit the refresh button. You can see the files you’ve transferred; long-press or open it with a compatible application to save it to the internal storage or on your SD card.
Note: This app is no longer available on Google Play Store
Generally, you may require USB cable to perform some other task simultaneously to transfer data to Android. In this case, you can turn your Android into a wireless flash drive for Mac without getting into any hassle of setup and configuration.
