Use a Wormhole to share files across platforms|devices

I am very fortunate at work to have the best of both worlds…a MAC Mini, Windows Laptop, and an Android device [Samsung Galaxy Note 10.1]. The one problem I faced was the ability to share files from one platform to another. Actually, the problem does not exist with the android device, as file management and access is so much simpler and streamlined, but always a challenge with the Apple environment. 

This is my setup at work…

  2. this includes, Android and iPad devices

There are different types of Wormhole Switches, namely:

It is a cable with USB on both ends. Simply plug in! The software will prompt to install after which you will see the Wormhole icon on the taskbar. See how easy it is to select the option below:


The procedure is the same for Windows and Mac. Wormhole icon is on the taskbar – click to choose the position of the other platform.


or you could go for the WORMHOLE DOCKING STATION
