You may also be surprised to learn that you can even buy stuff for your Android devices using iOS or MacOS. The process is exactly the same as David G described it on a PC. In fact, any browser is capable of accessing the PlayStore. 
Also, since we have a few Mac users with Androids, there's a free app called Android File Transfer (not on the AppStore, but downloadable from Safari) which is accessible & simple to use. The purpose of this app is to drag & Drop stuff to/from your Android to your Mac. I find this very useful since I've now got a sufficient mechanism for comparing prices for music, books, films & TV shows on iTunes & GooglePlay for the best deal out there.
Enjoy!
