How to Receive Files via Bluetooth on Mac From Android and Other Phones


If you are able to send files from your Mac to other devices and unable to receive the files from them even after pairing, the most likely reason is your bluetooth sharing isn’t turned on.

Turn on bluetooth sharing on MAC OSX?

Turning bluetooth sharing is very simple.

Open preferences panel and select sharing and then select enable bluetooth sharing.  You will now be able to receive files via bluetooth on mac.

You can find the screenshots for the process below.

Note: Either  turn off bluetooth sharing when you don’t need it or make sure you have “Ask What to Do” selected for both receiving files and when other bluetooth devices try to browse your Mac. If you are not careful, people can use this to install spyware or other malicious software or get access to your personal files.

Hello World From OSX and iOS Help

4 years back when I got my first Macbook Pro, the first week of switching from Windows was a mixed feeling. Not that I did not like OSX, but   I missed a few things that windows has a developer. These may seem simple and silly but if you are developer, you will understand.

  • Delete button.
  • Page up and page down.
  • Different keyboard layout ( position of ctr and command keys ).
  • Multimedia keys.

I got used to the OSX alternates of the above things and within a month I completely fell in love with OSX and my Macbook and I would never ever go back to a windows machine again. My 4 years with OSX only strengthened my decision.

Though the MAC and OSX are perfect and save you a hell lot of time compared Windows, there will be few things that are not obvious on the first sight or sometimes you may want to the OSX to do something that it isn’t designed for. Here I will share my answered to such questions, and help you find solutions to any other similar problems you may have.

I have been using iOS for 7 years, though it wasn’t perfect initially( Lack of copy paste function ) they fixed the problems and other usability issues with time and now it’s almost close to perfect (only if they can give easy access to settings from within the apps).

iOS section of this blog will cover news about the interesting apps, news from the jailbreak community and solve any problems you might with your device.
