    You could load an FTP server (I downloaded FTP Server by The Olive Tree) app on your Note 4, then install an FTP client like FileZilla on the Mac. That will allow you to freely copy files back and forth between them.

    Another option is to use a cloud based file sharing like Dropbox.

    Along with the other options mentioned in this thread, ES File Explorer (excellent for all file handling, btw) can also access computers on your local network. You may have to set permissions on your Mac to allow being connected to, however. I can't help you there, though. I don't do Macs.
