    I searched here all day to only find related threads 3-4 years old on Droid devices.
    I now see how limited Kies is with only images - music to add.
    There's no option to move documents.

    The only work around to a long document was scrolling the document on the computer screen while S4 recorded
    It on a video.
    Not very stylish capturing flare of screen pixels. But at least I have the data.

    I need the best running ware - to create documents plus move them connected to laptop-Mac's
    Id rather not deal with PDF's-
    There isnt much they do well-
    Horrible non format - can't alter default font.
    Just simple text notes - embed image to if needed-
    Mainly to make copy of instructions of Apps & functions for this phone from this site on what has been the best.
    I try to use the memo app that comes with S4- but its too finicky limited to page size, and other editing issues.
    Coming from Mac, they also had worthless text memo app for the phone-
    Thanks

    What exactly do you wish to do? Can your MAC open Word documents? How many documents are involved?

    Have you looked at Evernote?

    I do have evernote.
    Like said prior-copied instructions - on everything S4 from the posts here.

    Regardless from what device - computer or phone the data is copied from-
    There must be Text document that works & move at will between them.

    Looks like evernote is the do all-
    Where links work as well.

    Making links altered text like in this post option to make it say anything-vs 5 lines long.

    The Mac can do word documents-rarely used vs simple text documents.

    From the searching here earlier -
    These apps came up for Adroid-
    On threads 3-4 years old.
    Are they still used-current?

    Astro file manager.
    AKNotepad
    Docs to Go
    EStrong's.

    Do I have to have a pile of apps -
    To access stuff - to be able to attach to email?
    Id just like a stand alone text app that doesnt require network to use it.
    Edit at will- then add it to evernote.

    Im using the S4 now vs computer- so posting here is a challenge pita actually.
    You get micro window that can't move to a larger view.

    As long as we're whining :)

    I forgot to add-if only the phone has network access- now evernote is dead end as well.
    Laptop can't move the added data.
    So its down to a word document of some type that can be physically moved with no network option

    With only a 1/2" window-those reading will have to use freestyle subject lines.

    Is there alternative to kies - with no limit what can be moved between device connected USB.
    Maybe thats the whole issue here.

    Obviously not - there's no current thread anywhere describing the best of -
    Google Play is a joke - what comes up as apps are not in rating order - The App has to be opened to show rating - total scam - time killer.
    I've been down this road for the past week of frustration - then find junk review.

    Asking if tried & no input - makes it look like another mystery app.
    Don't take it wrong - I make notes - to try -
    If I recommend anything - it's 100% tested.

    I didn't input because I haven't tried them - they were recommended to me - they are both supposed to be wireless transfer apps. My son likes the SDC one, but as I said I haven't tried them yet so I can't give you a review. Sorry.
    I hear you about Google and Droid Forum, while a great place, is desperately in need of a good index and/or search function. It's very frustrating to know that you've read something somewhere, but can't find it again easily.

    Thanks-
    The other very huge problem-
    The perfect App might be hidding in plain site-
    But they name it something retarded.
    Stuff Apple does-
    Finder' for example-
    What idiot blonde did they find, got paid for that?
