Description

To celebrate Transloader 3.0's release, I've discounted the app by ~50% for a limited time!
Be sure to update Transloader on your iOS devices as well - it's worth it : )

With Transloader, you can initiate downloads on one or more 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 into 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
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.



Requirements:
- A free iCloud account
- The optional, free Transloader iOS companion app (iOS 14 or newer)

What’s New

Version 3.0.1

Transloader 3.0 has been reimagined, redesigned and redeveloped from the ground up.

- Supports multiple Macs
Transloader now supports a multi-Mac environment, allowing you to assign downloads to one specific, or multiple Macs.
It also keeps track of Transloader's status on your Mac (running, sleeping or not running).

- Assign Downloads to Macs - from other Macs
In addition to being able to initiate downloads on your Macs from your iPhones and iPads (which requires the free iOS counterpart of Transloader available on the App Store), you can also start downloads on Macs from other Macs.

- Tight Integration with macOS
Transloader's Share extension lets you initiate downloads on Macs right from within your browser (and any other app you can share links from).
Its service in the Services menu allows you to download links you select in documents.

- Login to Download
If a file requires a login into 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
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.

- 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 now save links, and assign them to a Mac for download later.

- Push Notifications
Stay informed about the state of your downloads and Macs on all your devices, by setting up (optional) push notifications.

Version 3.0.1 brings the following improvements and fixes:
- Improves syncing reliability
- Fixes an issue where a Mac, after waking up, would sometimes send a "Mac is sleeping" notification
- Improves loading of file titles
- Fixes a bug that would prevent "Launch at login" to work under certain conditions

Ratings and Reviews

Worthless or Scam - Don't Buy

Does not work at all. I've tried links from both iPad and iPhone clients- neither indicated the ability to sync to iCloud despite restarting the devices. The Mac client sat doing nothing for hours, then after logging out/logging in, promptly returned error messages for all downloads. There's no way to determine the cause of the error or to try again. I'm certainly going to report a problem and ask for a refund from Apple when my receipt shows up in the email...

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!
