Although Android File Transfer and DoubleTwist function by degree, there is a Bonjour compatible alternative, Droid NAS, that works wirelessly

If you use a Mac and Android device, getting data from one to the other can be more than a pain. Although Android File Transfer and DoubleTwist function by degree, there is a Bonjour compatible alternative, Droid NAS, that works wirelessly.

CodeSector’s Droid NAS installs on an Android device (v2.2 and up) and allows the user to share folders over wi-fi to a Mac by taking advantage of Bonjour (Apple’s version of the zeroconf).

Droid NAS allows you to share folders over a Wi-Fi network, making your Android device visible as a Bonjour computer in Finder on your Mac. Turn your phone or tablet into a wireless flash drive with a single tap!

Granted, you will need to move files back-and-forth manually, but there’s no need to tether — it’s functionality of Android File Transfer made wireless.
