    You can have UMS functionality.
    Download DriveDroid.
    Download Terminal IDE
    In DriveDroid create blank image. Call it usbdrive.
    In Terminal IDE navigate to the image folder:
    cd /sdcard/Downloads/images
    Format the image to FAT:
    mkdosfs -s 1 usbdrive.img

    At this point you be able to "activate" the image in DriveDroid and the computer will recognize it like a USB drive.

    Now, if you like me, stuck in a hotel room with nothing to wach on TV and dont have a laptop nearby but the TV has a USB input you have to populate the image with you're pirated tv shows first...
    In Terminal IDE:
    mkdir drive
    mount -o loop usbdrive.img drive
    cp ../some_movie.mp4 drive

    No need for 3rd party sync apps with your Mac.
    Once USB drive is enabled simply drag and drop your files with Android File Manager app that you've downloaded to your Mac.

    Remember that your entire iTunes library exists in your Music Folder > iTunes > iTunes Music

    I like the DriveDroid mouting hax. You guys are supposed to be geeks, how you are failing to backup your pix with dropbox and sync your contacts with gmail, is beyond me.
