Five Speed Software, Inc. is shipping a new app for Mac users, iGet 1.0. iGet is a utility designed for file transfer management. The app features a custom protocol for complete Mac attribute file transferring. According to Five Speed Software, Inc:
Five Speed Software, Inc. today announced the immediate availability of iGet 1.0, a new kind of file transfer application engineered specifically for Mac OS X.
iGet is a modern replacement for dated file transfer tools like FTP, SFTP, or client-server solutions. Taking full advantage of several Mac OS X technologies, iGet provides a better way to move files between Mac OS X computers.
iGet is based on a custom protocol that was designed from scratch to be fast on real-world Internet connections (such as DSL, cable, or dialup), and which enables the software to fully support Mac-specific file attributes--including resource forks, HFS metadata, packages, aliases, and Unicode file names--which standard protocols like FTP cannot handle.
You can find more information about the iGet 1.0 release at the Five Speed Software, Inc. Web site. iGet 1.0 is available for US$24.95.
