Android backups on Mac
Mac and Android are typically incompatible. This is where Samsung Kies steps in, building a bridge between the two operating systems. It could use some work, but it’s one of the few options available.
An awkward romance
This is a decent attempt at creating compatibility between Mac computers and Samsung Android devices.
Samsung Kies is all about creating a backup of all of your information, except for copyrighted content, on your computer. In this case, it tries to send your Android data to a Mac computer. Generally, these two operating systems don’t get along. However, there are times when this application functions, even if it is limited. There are some great things about it, though.
Plugging your phone into your computer, you can easily see all the information it has stored on your screen. This is fantastic for managing large quantities of information that would otherwise be tedious on your device’s small screen. This is, in part, thanks to the great user interface. But, apart from easy synchronization with your e-mail accounts, it struggles to transfer actual information.
A large complaint from general users is that it has some serious bugs. These involve issues while syncing that cause loss of data. You heard right, using this application puts your data at risk of permanent loss. This is especially frustrating considering there are plenty of alternatives, like AirMore, protect your information in this delicate process. An unreliable backup app is something you should definitely avoid.

Is there a better alternative?
Absolutely. This program gets a thumbs up for the effort, but WonderShare MobileGo is a much better choice. It’s more reliable and keeps your data safe.
