Mac-to-Mac file transfer tool.

What is iGet for Mac

iGet is an inventive file transfer tool designed specifically for the Mac. It allows you to log into your account on any remote Mac and browse, find, and get the files you need. As easy to use as the best FTP clients, iGet is much more Mac-oriented: you can stop and resume file and folder transfers, and you see the real Mac icons and Finder labels for all your files as you browse. iGet can even put files into the Trash remotely.

With Spotlight searches that execute on the remote Mac, you can find anything quickly. Always-on strong SSH encryption keeps your data secure, and you never have to think about details like HFS metadata, resource forks, or unusual characters in your file names. With iGet, it just works. It's designed to work well over virtually any kind of network connection, not just a fast LAN. This makes iGet a great tool for accessing your Macs over the Internet. And with it's innovative "zero-setup" design, you don't have to install any special software (not even iGet) on the remote Mac before connecting.

All this power is wrapped up in a smooth interface that is simple to use and supports all the great technologies that Mac users expect, including Automator, AppleScript, Bonjour, Spotlight, and the Keychain.

  • Fully supports Mac file features (resource forks, type/creator, HFS metadata, Finder flags, file packages, etc.)
  • Resumable file and folder transfers
  • Remote Spotlight searching!
  • Displays true Mac icons for remote files
  • No server software required-just iGet on your own Mac
  • 60 second learning curve
  • always on strong SSH encryption (now supports public key auth)
  • Bonjour, Automator, AppleScript and Keychain support
  • Optimized for excellent performance over real-world Internet connections, such as DSL, cable, and even dialup

What's new in iGet

Version 2.7.1:

Fixes and improvements in this version:

  • Corrected an issue where iGet could become confused about the state of the local network, and become unable to connect to other Macs via the "Local Network" browser. If this occurred, the New Connection window would remain stuck displaying the message "Resolving Bonjour address" until the connection was cancelled.
  • Fixed a bug that could cause iGet to list multiple entries for the same Mac in its local network browser.
  • Fixed a bug that would cause the Recent Connections list to malfunction after being sorted by username or address, whereby clicking on an item in the list would improperly result in a different item being selected.
  • Certain alert and warning messages have been edited for clarity.

Still works even on Yosemite. Hope it continues to work in later releases of OS X. Definitely the easiest way to transfer files.

really want the .app, but I think it's overpriced. This cost twice what other file transfer tools cost. I would encourage the developer to consider lowering the price. Of course I wouldn't encourage the developer to do anything that would cause a loss in revenue, but I think the amount of new customers a price cut would create might justify the price change. just my 2 cents. great .app. super easy, fast, and robust. :-) wish i would of caught the MU sale.

Extremely awesome. Makes file transfer between Macs so simple and fast, yet its secure. One of the first installs I do when setting up a Mac. The "sixty second learning curve" is really not a lie. Best tool for secure transfers between Macs.

For those who have tried to access their Mac office files from a home Mac (OS 10.4.9 recommended), and more or less gave up on the project, because you skipped out on that engineering degree...this one's for you. iGet is the most intuitive tool I have yet come across for sending, receiving (copying) and searching files across the internet. When I looked at the testimonials I was at first read... and ... second read...skeptical...it can't be that easy. Checking further on the net there was some consistency to the stories. I bit...on the demo, anyway. Incredible! This is the way, over-the-net file transfers and search should be, from a Mac users perspective (is there really any other). It should always have been this way. The most current version vs 2.6.2, I downloaded from MacUpdate although it is available elsewhere. I have done Mac systems support since, are you ready...the Lisa... which puts me closer to Attends than Pampers, and have worked with many programs over this time, that fell far from the hype. This is one piece of software that deserves attention by all.

A great app that's well worth the discounted price. A little steep for the regular price though. I found that transfer speeds are significantly better than other similar ssh-capable tools.

Looks like it takes what can be a major pain and makes it simple, but $49 is too grand a price. $25 seems reasonable.

Does it handle .Mac xfers with a true progress bar transfer status? I'll have to check it out.

Will give it a try to see how it compares to just using the Connect to Server functionality that's available in the finder.
