    Does anyone use AFT with their Mac? I've followed the directions, but can't get it to connect or show me my SGSIII files. I would appreciate any help. Thanks.

    It doesn't work with Mountain Lion. People seem to have mixed success on Lion. For me, it worked fine on Lion, but stopped working when I updated to Mountain Lion.

    I use two different methods for connecting to my mac:
    1. I use Parallels with Windows 7. If I have Windows up and plug the GS3 into the computer, it mounts right up.
    2. I also use an app called Wifi File Explorer Pro. It's like Airdroid, but it works better for me (Airdroid seems to cancel transfers before they're complete)

    I have Lion 10.7.5, but it won't mount. I know what Parallels does, but don't want to split my hard drive. I'll check out Wifi File Explorer Pro. Right now, i'm mounting the SD card with a reader, but that gets to be a pain. Thanks.

    What's the difference between Wifi File Explorer Pro, and Kies Air?

    They're very similar. I tried Kies Air and found it to be a little more confusing than Wifi File Explorer.

    Like Kreepy I'm using Parallels for USB access to the S3. Kies running natively was working but I removed it given how infrequently I used it. Used my Windows 7 VM recently to root the phone. The USB pass through worked perfectly. As for splitting the hard drive you don't have to reparation to use Parallels although I understand it can use an existing Bootcamp volume.
    I too have had zero success with AFT on 10.8.2.
