Sony Bridge application is used to update your Xperia, Android phone software, as well as transfer files between your phone and iTunes.You can also use the application to create a backup of your phone content, depending on the model.
Now with Sony Bridge for Mac OS X you can update your Android phone software, transfer media between your phone and iTunes, iPhoto or a custom folder on your Mac. Separate files can also be transferred between your phone and Mac by using “drag and drop” in a file browser.

After I updated Xperia Sola Android version from Android 2.3 (Gingerbread) to Android 4.0.4 (Ice Cream Sandwich) I couldn’t connect the mobile to Mac OS X using USB. Finally with this Sony Bridge I was able to view memory card files and take backups. 🙂
