Developer Matthias Gansrigler has released Transloader for iOS and OS X, a two-app solution that lets you download URLs from your iPhone, iPad or iPod touch to your Mac via iCloud.
Available for an introductory price (40% off), Transloader lets you add URLs to any kind of file in Transloader on your iOS device and it will sync them up to your Mac for download.
When you come home, you’ll find your files there, waiting for you as if someone was using your Mac. Only no one did.
“This way, if you come across, say, a Mac App demo on your iPhone 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,” Matthias explains.
The iOS Transloader app is considered a companion tool. It’s free for Phone 3GS, iPhone 4, iPhone 4S, iPhone 5, iPod touch (3rd generation), iPod touch (4th generation), iPod touch (5th generation) and iPad.
It requires iOS 5.1 or later and displays in full on 4-inch screens (i.e. iPhone 5, iPod touch 5G).
The Mac counterpart is a paid app. It currently sells for $2.99 / €2.59 in the Mac App Store and you can grab it at the first link below. Customers need to use the same iCloud account on their iOS device and Mac for the solution to work.
The Mac app requires OS X 10.7 Lion or later. Mountain Lion is also supported, and you also need a 64-bit processor.
Matthias says the solution supports zip, dmg files, several kinds of images, music and movie files, which pretty much means you’re free to download anything you come across during your iOS web surfing sessions.
