Tech specs and details

Everything in One Place

Cloud Mate is designed to keep it simple. There's a list of Apps, click on one and start working with the files it has placed in iCloud. It's as simple as that.

Drag and drop files in and out of iCloud, between applications, all in a single familiar finder-like interface.

You can even take a look at all your PhotoStream pictures without opening iPhoto.

Even the files for iOS apps you don't have installed on your Mac are available. Great for backing up those game saves someplace safe.

Bringing iCloud to Finder

Cloud Mate can add a special iCloud drive to Finder, so you can just access iCloud files like any others if you want.

And it's not just finder, your iCloud drive will be available from every Open/Save dialog on your Mac. Even non-iCloud apps can now save their files in iCloud!

You'll even be notified when any device, or application modifies any file in iCloud. It's that simple.
