Dropbox or email or  Google Drive

Dropbox and email also good option to share any thing between android and PC or mac. You can share good amount of data using Dropbox and google drive but when it comes to email then you can’t transfer much data as email service not allow you to transfer data more than 100 mb(Depend on emial service for gmail it’s just 25mb).

One disadvantage of this ways is need of high speed internet & if you are not having internet access or your internet speed is very much slow then it is difficult to transfer file.
