NoteTote lets you remotely tell your Mac at home to download files. That’s it. Just leave NoteTote running in the menubar on your home Macintosh and when you’re out and about, use Simplenote on your iPhone, iPod Touch, iPad, any Mac or PC Simplenote client, or any internet-enabled computer to give your computer files to download. Your Mac at home downloads the files, and they’re ready for you when you get home. Simple, secure, no technical wizardry required.
If all that sounds familiar, NoteTote used to be called MobileDL, which I wrote about last June, and have used on a near-daily basis ever since. This new incarnation has been rewritten from the ground up, and it shows: MobileDL was always a wee bit temperamental, but NoteTote is, going by a week’s testing, rock solid.
And it’s on sale this week, priced at $4.99 (down from $8.99) until February 14th. My advice? Snap it up. NoteTote is one of those ‘How did I get by without this‽’ apps, bridging the gap between your desktop and mobile device.
- Point NoteTote at a folder in your Dropbox, and you can, in effect, download stuff straight to your mobile device.
- Add Hazel to the mix to shunt torrents in the direction of Transmission, pass nzb files to SABnzbd, &c..
