Some nice things our users wrote to us

With my MacDroid PRO I find it extremely convenient to move files between my devices. I just drag and drop and all I need ends up where I want it to be. Happy with the software for sure!
I love my little free MacDroid. All I need is to save my photos from Android to my computer, and this free version does it at the drop of a hat!
Transferring videos and photos between my Galaxy and my MacBook is smooth and impressively fast. That's all I need - no glitches, no drama, job done!
I wanted to get old family videos out of my old computer onto my new phone to take them with me while visiting a distant family. MacDroid transferred everything really quickly and we could watch them altogether without having to pack my Mac on the trip. Thank you!
