Doing things on your computer remotely can be a chore. You shouldn’t have to deal with computer-nerd stuff like IP addresses and SSH just to get that neat video onto your computer when your friend tells you about it at the bar.
1. Run NoteTote in your Mac’s menubar.
2. Add the URL of a file to a new line in a specific note in your Simplenote.
3. NoteTote downloads that file to your Mac.
NoteTote lets you remotely tell your Mac at home to download files. That’s it. Just leave NoteTote running in the menubar on your home Macintosh and when you’re out and about, use Simplenote on your iPhone, iPod Touch, iPad, any Mac or PC Simplenote client, or any internet-enabled computer to give your computer files to download. Your Mac at home downloads the files, and they’re ready for you when you get home. Simple, secure, no technical wizardry required.
NoteTote lets you download any kind of file — .mp4, .mov, .mp3, .zip, .dmg, .app, .pdf, you name it — if it’s a public file on the web, NoteTote can download it. All while you’re away from your computer.
NoteTote can be a great addition to your workflow. For tips on how to use NoteTote to remotely start (100% legal, obviously) torrents, download YouTube videos, upload any kind of file to Dropbox, and more, click here.
“NoteTote works well, and as someone who downloads stuff on a daily basis, it’s a welcome tool that makes it easier to do so, no matter where I am.”
“My advice? Snap it up. NoteTote is one of those ‘How did I get by without this‽’ apps.”
“I can’t tell you enough; go buy this app.”
