Start downloads on your Mac remotely from your iPhone or iPad.

Add URLs to any kind of file in Transloader on your iPhone, iPad or iPod touch and it will sync them to your Mac for download.

This way, if you come across a link to a zip or dmg on your iPhone, for example, and want to download it, you just paste that link into Transloader for iOS and it will be synced to this Mac app where it will be downloaded, ready for when you're in front of your Mac again.

Works great

I especially like how it automatically handles magnet links properly. The iOS action extension can be used to send URLs from basically anywhere. Recommended!

Works perfectly for me!

I just purchased this app after reading a review in this month's Macworld. I've tested it with a couple of files and it worked perfectly. It's a simple app that does exactly what it says it will do. The only change I made was to have the notification changed from a Banner (the default) to an Alert so that it would stay on screen. My thinking is that if I use it while I'm out of the house, I'll have a reminder that I downloaded something while I was away.

The only quibble I have is that less savvy or experienced Mac users might not be able to figure out what to do when they first launch Transloader on their Mac. For instance, how would they know to go to Preferences to configure automatic launch and the menu bar icon if they were a less than experienced user. The start screen for the application would be better served if that information was better articulated.

I see that there have been a number of 1-star reviews, and maybe after continued use I'll uncover some problem, but for now, this is a "works as advertised" application and a great addition to my mobile arsenal.

Exactly what I was looking for!

FINALLY! I have been looking for something like this for a while. Tried Hazel at first to deal with things like this but it ended up wiping away my desktop items. This is awesome to use and works great! The Developer is very responsive as well and helped me work through a problem I was having with one of the links I was trying to download. *Highly* recommend this app!
