My needs are simple and are as follows.
I would like to sync the following between my Mac and my S4
- selected music (I have far too much to fit on my phone).
I do not want to give Google (or Apple for that matter) all my data, so syncing via Google is not an option.
I would also like to be able to do a one click backup of everything on the phone so I can restore it easily should that be necessary.
That's all. If there really is a solution to this, I would really love to hear it because I have been looking for more than two years and I'm not even close to finding anything that works as well as iTunes and my iPhone 5, which does everything I need easily and elegantly.
AirDroid works, for backup I'm pretty sure you have to root
