    "I am always transferring files from my phone to my computer. The process is fairly simple, but can be a little time consuming. I tried this app and hoped it would cut some time off of the process. It has made moving things around as drag and drop. It is super simple. I can not recommend this app more. It will made your life so much easier."

    "When I first started using this app it was very streamlined, simple to use, and fast. I'm not a fan of the new features, however. I think they're a bit overkill, and only serve to complicate an otherwise useful app. If there was an option to use an older version of the app, I would be much more satisfied."

    "Keeping track of all of my files that need to always be the most up to date with as many devices as I have had become a real hassle. I always seemed to manually redownload my files on my Android phone to match the work I had been doing on my computer, and sometimes vice versa. Well handling that manually is over, I have found SyncMate, which syncs right to my Mac computer and helps me always have the most up to date files without any extra stress."
