There are rarely any good products that would do the job of syncing content between a Mac and an Android phone, and SyncMate does the job in a brilliant way. There are two types of accounts on SyncMate: Free and Expert. It is obvious that Expert plan gives the maximum options, and lets the user organize folders, Mount Disk, AutoSync, Sync even iTunes library and these are not available on the Free version, still the free edition does the job of syncing the calendar entries and contacts, and all of this is done in the background as well.
You need to install two tools, one in each OS. There is a free SyncMate app available for Mac, and the app for Android devices is also available for free on Play Store. You get to see three options – USB, Wi-Fi and Bluetooth, and it is wise to choose Wi-Fi as the connection option because sometimes when you wanted to talk on the phone, the connection doesn’t go off.
It is not just with the Android devices, but SyncMate on Mac can connect with iOS devices, Another Mac, a mounted device, Google account, Dropbox, iCloud and an MTP device. Select, and then you will be able to enter the IP address specified on the Android phone.
Once the device is connected successfully, you will be able to see the tabs on the top, where SMS, Calendar and Contacts are placed by default, but for the Expert user, there are options to add more tabs, i.e. plugins like Calls, Folders, Safari Bookmarks, iPhoto and iTunes library.
Under the menu, “Sync All” option syncs all the data together, between both the devices. And just below to that, is the option to turn the AutoSync ON, so that you don’t have to manually try and sync the devices.
