What is Spot Documents for Mac

Spot Documents stores your files using your Amazon S3 and Amazon SimpleDB (separate account creation required). An iOS client and a Web interface are also available.


  • Preview files from anywhere, without downloading them (eg Web client, iPad, or Mac app).
  • Content search - search all your files online using content and spotlight-like searches (eg all images with a pixel count > 10 million), or geographic location, etc...
  • Full versioning. You can upload new versions of files that you have edited, Spot Documents tracks them for you.
  • Email links. You can send a time limited link to another person to let them download that one file for 24 hrs or a week.
  • Unlimited storage: Amazon promises unlimited storage. Track and search hundreds of thousands of files per repository.
  • Multiple repositories - you can join as many repositories as you like, so can have one for accounting, one for R&D, etc.
  • User permissions - users can be made read only on an account.
  • Scaling. Have 100 computers all accessing an account at the same time: Scalability is courtesy of Amazon S3.
  • Proxy files. NOT uploading large files (you set a limit) Large files have all search data, previews, etc, uploaded, so searching and preview will still work. This saves storage costs, etc.
  • Auto - upload - set some folders to auto upload new files to Spot Documents, such as, perhaps, all scanned bills, etc.
  • Your files: Files are uploaded by Spot Documents to Amazon S3 in a standard manner, so they can be retrieved and managed by any S3 client, such as S3Fox, etc.
  • You control access to all your assets. All of the metadata, search capability, etc is all stored in your account. We simply don't have access to it.
  • iPad/iPod/Mac/Web access tools all available.
  • Inexpensive: From $3 per month. Store 1000 2MB files for $4 per month.
  • Nice icons and Previews for that Mac feel.
  • Simple: Finding and downloading a document is as easy as Internet shopping.
  • Uploading: Upload one at a time or using auto upload. Also can upload from the Web client, iPhone, etc.
