Try Transloader for free - download the demo from

With Transloader, you can initiate downloads on any and all of your Macs - remotely from your iPhone, iPad, or other Macs.

Say you're browsing on your iPhone and come across a Mac app demo you'd like to give a try.
Now, you could fumble for an app to save that link in for later, and hope to remember to download it afterwards.
Or you can use Transloader, and assign that link for download to a Mac right away - no need for fumbling, or remembering. Even better, when you return to your Mac, the file will be ready for you.

Main Features:
- Initiate downloads on a remote Mac
Wether you're on another Mac, an iPhone or an iPad, you can enter the link into the app on your device and assign it to a specific Mac for download. Or use the app's Share extension to start downloads right from within your browser.

- Login to Download
If a file requires a login on the website before it can be downloaded, Transloader lets you do that now. You can log in to websites at any time, from any device.

- Link- and File Actions on Mac
Link Actions tell Transloader on Mac which app or Automator workflow should open specific links (based on criteria like host or URL scheme), instead of downloading them in Transloader. For example, you can open ftp links with the ftp app of choice.
A File Action lets Transloader on Mac open a file after its downloaded with an app or Automator workflow, based on criteria like file type/extension, or the link's host. For example, unzip zip files right away after they're downloaded, or organize downloaded images in folders.

- Save links for later
If your desired Mac is not yet registered with Transloader, or you'd just like to wait before you initiate the download of a link on a Mac, you can save it, and assign the link to a Mac for download later.

- The Mac app, available for purchase on the Mac App Store
- A (free) iCloud account

Great idea, but...

It doesn't seem to work well with files of a substantial size. It needs to be more aggressive in resuming / retrying downloads. Anything over a gigabyte rarely succeeds.

However, the dev is VERY responsive and tracked me down to get more details and let me know he was working on the problem. So the app and dev both show promise! For now, it does work most of the time. Some servers are just more temperamental than others.

Very handy and reliable

I use this to save links that I want to come back to, but on another of my devices. I end up using it that way several times a day. Thanks!

Feature suggest, remote download to NAS.

Great app, the issue is that my macbook usually is turned off while I'm not at home. So it would be very useful to download straight to NAS.
