I have three devices : A MacBook Pro (i7, Retina, 2014 one), Xiomi mi4i, and Apple iPad (4th generation).
So my issue is every time I have to transfer and access files, owing to fact that only two are of the same ecosystem, it is quite a problem.
I recently tried using BitTorrent Sync (for about two weeks now). The problem is that it works only 30% of the time , and is other wise very laggy. In addition to this I have tried Share IT, Pushbullet , Instashare.
USB is an option, but my requirement is to use my Mac as a repository for the files, and access as I need. Is there a way I could set up a network between my three devices (by say smb or ftp) and then access files (like the BitTorrent way) ? I did try the share folders option, but I didn't quite understand it correctly.
