A former developer of software for the Apple Newton has introduced a significant update to the powerful file-transfer tool iGet.

The $49.95 software is designed as a fully Mac-focused file transfer utility, capable of easily swapping files between Macs. It supports remote Spotlight searching and true Mac icons. Connections are always strongly encrypted.

Now at version number 2.5, iGet is published by Five Speed Software. This major free update adds support for public key authentication, performance improvements, and a new interface for maintaining the favourite-connections list.

A demo version of the software is available.
