I forgot the USB cable and I have some files on the Mac that I would like to transfer to my nexus 7. Is it possible to do this via bluetooth? Is there an app that can do this?

Provided both the Android handset and your Mac share a common wifi connection (same AP that allows client-to-client connections):

Install an FTP server or a webserver app that allows uploading:

For example Airdroid. It allows file-uploading via drag&drop even. You'll find your uploaded files in airdroid/upload in the SDcard folder.

It's not Bluetooth, but try my Open Source project cross copy for inter-device copy and paste:

  1. browse to on both devices
  2. choose the same code word to establish a connection between the devices
  3. upload the files on the Mac
  4. a download link for each file will appear on the page of the Nexus 7
