Nakahara ships iGet 2.6
Nakahara Informatic today announced its acquisition of iGet, the Mac file transfer tool, from Five Speed Software as well as released a new version: iGet 2.6 introduces a new and more modern look and feel, along with bug fixes and user-requested enhancements. The free update is recommended for all users. iGet is a file transfer tool designed specifically for the Mac; it allows users to log into their accounts on remote Macs and browse, search, and download the files they need. It supports stop/resume of file and folder transfers, displays the real Mac icons and Finder labels for remote files, understands Mac aliases and can perform Mac-specific tasks like putting files into the Trash remotely. Nakahara, which helped transition the code-base to a Universal Binary, plans to announce a beta test program for iGet 3 within the next few weeks. iGet requires Mac OS X 10.4 or later and can connect to Macs running Mac OS X 10.3 or later. A full license is $50.
