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.

Version 1.5.3
Review by Bocaboy

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.

Don't Buy! - This does not work. I tried two different files from two different sources. Gives useless error message, no way to figure out what went wrong. I would like my money back.

Version 2.1
Review by TJLuoma

A utility I have been waiting a long time for. - For ages I had wanted an easy way to take an URL and download it to my Mac. I just assumed there would be an easy way. There wasn't. Until now. I have the (free) Mac app running on my machine, and send URLs from my iPhone or iPad. A minute or so later, I get a notification that it was downloaded. It's that simple. I changed the Mac app’s download directory to ~/Dropbox/Downloads/ so that the download will be synced to all of my Macs as well.

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!

Review by Amin Z.M.

Super Great App - What would you do if you came across a great 2-hour-long movie on your iPad? The free download link is right there, there’s just a little teeny-weeny problem: it won’t work! That’s a non-desktop version Safari on a file-manager-lacking iOS. Transloader comes to the rescue! I’ve downloaded full-length movies and songs with this super great utility. They’ll be waiting for me in their entirety (!) right there on my mac (MacBook Air 2014 OS X Mavericks + iPad Pro 10.5" iOS 12). I feel my iPad and iPhone are much more capable now. Like other apps from this dev. Transloader is lightweight, very well thought-out and easy to use. Plus, you get to be in touch with a friendly and ultra-responsive developer and you’ve got what one would call “customer security”.
