How to Sync Your Android Device With Your Mac

At last there is a simpler way to get media onto your Android-powered smartphone.

Unlike Apple’s iOS devices that are built almost exclusively for media syncing, much to the chagrin of many people since it restricts the devices so much, Google’s Android handsets are a but archaic in getting what you want on your phone in a quick way.  Thanks to the Salling Media Sync for both PCs and Macs, the whole process has been streamlined by quite a bit.

(Keep It Simple Stupid)?  No, instead they over complicate it and make it counter-intuitive.
