[prMac.com] Chicago, Illinois - Hubapps today has presented Downloads, the second most useful app ever (behind the web browser itself). The perfect companion to the browser, Downloads makes finding and using files in the downloads folder a piece of cake.
In addition to transparent setup, monitoring, and pervasive search, many useful tools are available for working with downloaded files, including cloud sharing, zip, emailing, Quicklook, and more. From the app description: "Ever had trouble finding that file you downloaded from the internet? Downloads is the perfect companion to your browser (be it Safari, Firefox, or another), especially for webmail users. It provides a direct and intuitive view of all your past downloads so you can find (and use!) them and then get on with your life."
Downloads is like an uber-folder for downloaded files
* Automatic, constant, live-updates instantly as new files are downloaded
* Image grid (like iPhoto) lets to see thumbnails of all downloads
* Sortable table shows details of files (size, type, etc.)
* Quicklook integration to look inside any file (just like Finder)
* Search for specific files
* Move, open, print, or delete
* Show the original website, or reveal in Finder
* Lots of sharing options: re-email, make a zip archive, upload it to the cloud and share the link
* ... and more
The Finder is a very powerful tool. But for many users, especially the average webmail user, the majority of files they receive come in their email and are downloaded to the downloads folder. This is in addition to files they download through regular browsing. With the vast majority of documents in their ~/Downloads folders, and not needing the sophisticated and broad abilities of the full Finder, many users will benefit from the simplified interface to working with downloaded files which Downloads provides.
* Intel-Mac Compatible
* Requires Mac OS X 10.6 or later
* 1 MB
Pricing and Availability:
Downloads is $4.99 (USD) and available worldwide exclusively through the Mac App Store in the Productivity category.
