    I'm planning on purchasing a Google Nexus 7 shortly and at my home office I use a MacBook Pro. I'll frequently be using this tablet on the go and I plan to keep the files that I'll need to access when on the road on my Nexus 7 or on Google Drive. There may be time I overlook something.
    In cases like this I'd like to find an app that will allow me to remotely connect to my Mac. In many cases this would allow me to for example to view Word files and find the information I need.
    I don't know if any of them offer this option but it would be nice if there was a way that I could also take a file from my Mac and transfer it to my Android device. Do any apps offer this?
    Obviously security is very important with the above. I have used an iPad in the past and know there's an app called iTeleport that does something similar than this for connecting remotely to my Mac.
    Thank you for your help.

    Check out Team Viewer. You can remotely control your machine from an Android device. As far as transferring files, is there a Dropbox for Mac?
