    Is there an app or program that I can use to transfer the pics and music from phone to Mac computer. Something like iTunes?

    Your photos will import right into iPhoto. I would recommend Google Music on your Mac and phone.

    For photos and videos: use Dropbox or Google Photos (or pretty much any cloud storage service). Enable auto upload and everything lands on your Mac automatically. For transferring music to the device: Apple Music springs to mind (allows you to upload your entire collection to the cloud), or Google Play music, which does the same.

    An offline solution for music would be an app called Doubletwist.

    If you use podcasts, there are several excellent podcasting apps as well.

    Using your MBP when you log onto photos.google.com, your photos from your S7 should be there. You can then download them into a folder on your desktop or the MBP Photos program.

    I thought people only used iTunes because they were forced to. I have never heard of anyone wanting something like iTunes.

    Can't you just copy the files to and from the phone as you want rather than trying to sync with some App that always seems to do what IT wants and not what you want.

    Android File Transfer is great

    https://www.android.com/filetransfer/

    Lets you do pretty much anything you wan with the files on either internal memory or the card

    I do the Google Photos route. It's very easy. Just download what you want from the Google Photos website. For music I use iSyncr. Works seamlessly with iTunes.

    Can't you just connect them with a USB cord and use "finder" to drag them where you want?

    If you want a wireless solution, use the SHAREit app, which allows you to transfer any files you select to Android, iOS, Windows, and Mac devices via direct Wi-Fi between the two. If you don't want to disconnect from your regular Wi-Fi network, use an app like Wi-Fi Explorer as long as your Mac is also on the same Wi-Fi network (which I would assume it would be) to use your Mac's Web browser to access your phone via a file explorer interface.

    Android File Transfer must be on of the worst programs I have used.

    Fails to connect to the phone almost always.

    From what I see, it has had no updates since 2012.

    There must be a better way!

    It is so bad, makes me want to move off Android.

    Android File Transfer doesn't work. Period. Either use the Smart Switch app, or plug your SD card into a USB card reader .

    If they are on a separate SD card, use a card reader to transfer them to your computer.
    If they are in internal storage, use the application Smart Switch, which you can find in your app drawer.
    If Smart Switch is not in the app drawer, download it from the Google Play Store.

    You have a Mac that has an SD card slot. Hopefully, you have chosen to store the pictures that you take onto the SD card. You will need to use an adaptor for the SD card from the phone but you can simply plug the card into the iMac. The pictures should open up in the photos app and you can then import them.

    I think the most direct way is to connect your phone with mac, then copy photos from your phone folder to any folders on mac you like.
    With my MBP, when I connect my S7 Edge to it, the computer does not see the phone. This is why the OP asked how to transfer them.

    I use Dropbox then an automator action to automatically import drop box photos to Apple photo.
    You'll have to Google the automator procedure to set it up.

    I use smart switch to transfer music and photos from my MacBook Pro to my S8+ and it works great for me. I don't like using Cloud storage for my music or my photos. Everything goes on my memory card

    The easiest way I have found is using the SHAREit app. Download on both your phone and computer. The computer will bring up a QR Code you scan with your phone and they are connected. You can then just select the photo's or files to transfer and its done. You can use this app to share with other devices and friends etc and can share many types of files, apps, games etc.
