iGet is an inventive file transfer tool designed specifically for the
Mac. It allows users to log into their accounts on remote Macs and
browse, search, and download the files they need. As easy to use as
the best FTP clients, iGet is much more Mac-oriented: it can stop and
resume file and folder transfers, displays the real Mac icons and
Finder labels for remote files, understands Mac aliases and can
perform Mac-specific tasks like putting files into the Trash remotely.
With Spotlight searches that execute on the remote Mac, searching for
files is extremely fast. iGet features always-on strong encryption,
and does not require users to worry about details like HFS metadata,
resource forks, or unusual characters in file names. With iGet, it
just works. In addition, iGet was designed to work well over
virtually any kind of network connection, not just a fast LAN, so
it’s a great tool for accessing remote Macs over the Internet. An
innovative “zero-setup” design allows the user to connect without
having to install any special software (not even iGet) on the remote
All this power is wrapped up in a smooth interface that is simple to
use and supports major Mac technologies like Automator, AppleScript,
Bonjour, Spotlight, and the Keychain.
iGet began shipping as a Universal Binary even before Intel-based
Macs became available, so it has offered native performance on both
Intel- and PowerPC-based Macs from day one.
iGet requires Mac OS X 10.4 or later. It can connect to Macs running
Mac OS X 10.3 or later.
