Please note, that that google app for file transfers DOES NOT WORK (for me). I cannot get it to work no matter which god I've prayed to or what kinda dance I did. So I looked for alternatives.
ADB worked, but I got tired of ADB to push files across (which is effective, but not what I would call fun). I came across MacPort, giving us ports of Linux/Unix stuff in the world of OSX. YAY!
Found that the various libraries for MTP and MTP-FS was ported! YAY!
After installing the hell out of macport (found: www macports org) and runing the updates.
Drop to the command line and then run these commands once:
sudo port install libmtp sudo port install mtpfs
