Android phone on Macbook

Postposted on Thu Mar 24, 2011 8:47 am

Does anyone know of a way I can pull my pictures and music off of my Evo to my Macbook? Right now I use Bootcamp to do it but dang it is a extra bunch of steps. If I plug in my phone the Macbook will not recognize it as if it isn't there. I know it isn't compatible with OSX but maybe a workaround? Thanks

Huh? DoubleTwist works for OSX and Windows, isn't that kind of the default Android software of choice? I also expected there to be a easy way to have the phone act as a mass storage device.

Put your phone into "USB drive" settings ... so that when its connected via USB, it shows up as a drive. Works with my Mac (HTC Inspire 4g)
