Ratings and Reviews


Excellent idea needs to be improved..

I love this app. Although I have my harddisk uploaded to Dropbox, I still like to transfer pdf files in between my mac and ipad through in real time. I am a scientist. Whenever I see an article that I like to read, I move it to my ipad through this app. Only shortcoming of this app is the absence of a in build editing capability of pdf files. That is why I gave it a 4 star. I don't understand why others gave lower ratings. I am very happy with this app. Please add an editor. I am willing to pay more for it. It is a must..



Not sure why some people didn't like it. Maybe they just haven't gotten the updates yet. Just bought this app and it is amazing. The only thing I cannot figure out how to do (or IF it can be done) is how to move a file directly from an iOS device to another iOs device. I love this app but the only limitation I can see is that you must move things from one device, to the Mac, then you can move it to another device. Other then that this app is great.


nice app

Works as advertized. Really drug and drop operation ones your Mac and iOS device are on the same network. You can choose which app on iOS device to open transferred file with by using "open with" icon. Four stars for lacking of that "open with" ability for .avi movies. They get sent to quicktime player which does not play them. There are players for .avi files under iOS. Works great for .mov movie files though.
