More about iGet

It's available for users with the operating system Mac OS X and previous versions, and it is only available in English. The program version is 2.7 and its last update happened on 2/11/2008.

About the download, iGet is a slick program that requires less storage space than the average program in the section Internet software.


  • Performance of file transfers involving many small files (including file and application packages) has been improved.
  • When running on Mac OS X 10.5 or later, the default location for downloaded items is now the user's Downloads folder. (Any existing setting will not be modified, however.)
  • Several user interface elements, including explanatory and informational sheets for cases like invalid user input, have been greatly improved.
  • Fixed a bug that could cause Automator actions to fail on Mac OS X 10.5.
  • Eliminated spurious "mdworker: unable to parse schema" messages that may have been written to the system log under Mac OS X 10.5.
  • Fixed a serious bug that in rare circumstances could cause a connection to fail, or cause a crash.
  • Several other minor improvements.

iGet is a next-generation file transfer tool for Mac OS X. It's what SFTP would be, if it had been designed exclusively for Mac OS X and the Mac platform's extremely high software expectations, without any cross-platform compromises. iGet lets you move files between Macs without resorting to archaic or only partially compatible protocols (like FTP or SFTP). And unlike AppleShare, iGet is network-oriented and designed to be fast over real-world Internet connections, and not just 100Mbps or 1Gbps LANs.

Engineered specifically for the Mac, iGet can do things no other file transfer tool can. Its custom-designed network protocol efficiently supports remote Spotlight searching and true Mac icons. It understands packages, Finder labels, HFS metadata and resource forks, etc. Connections are always strongly encrypted. And yet, the interface is so intuitive that there is virtually no learning curve at all for most Mac users. Best of all, because iGet's innovative design requires no additional software be pre-installed on the remote machine, all you need is iGet on your own Mac!
