Five Speed Software today announced the availability of iGet 1.0, a new kind of file transfer application designed specifically for Mac OS X. “iGet is based on a custom protocol that was designed from scratch to be fast on real-world Internet connections (such as DSL, cable, or dialup), and which enables the software to fully support Mac-specific file attributes–including resource forks, HFS metadata, packages, aliases, and Unicode file names–which standard protocols like FTP cannot handle. iGet 1.0 is priced at US$24.95 and requires Mac OS X 10.3.
