Can any iPhone to Android converts answer these questions?

Long time Mac user and iPhone user thinking of switching to the Note 2.

1. Is there a way to synch photos and videos over 4g with my Mac? Similar to how it can be done with Photostream with photos over wifi?

2. How do you synch general files with a Mac? Can this be done wirelessly?

3. Is there an easy way to get my Safari bookmarks on Chrome on it?

Thanks.

The easiest way would to use Dropbox.

Sync Safari Bookmarks with Chrome on you desktop computer then open open Chrome on the Android and log in to your Google account, bookmarks wil now be on your Android device.

You'll make your life a lot easier if you switch to Chrome on the Mac. It will sync everything across to your phone.

If you want to copy files between your phone and Mac on the same WiFi network try Droid Nas:
https://play.google.com/store/apps/d...droidnas&hl=en

You open the app, click start and your phone will show up as a network share on your Mac in finder.
