InWatch – Sort Files By Their Names Or Types In Different Folders

File categorization is one tedious task which can’t be performed unless you have a really good application which can automate the file copy and move operations. One folder in Windows and Mac which badly require file categorization is desktop, as it gets cluttered due to the fact that we usually throw almost every type of files on it. InWatch is the first application for both Mac and Windows, which is capable of solving such a mess for you. Being an efficient file categorization application, it allows you to specify type of files which are to be moved or copied to selected destination folders. Let me elaborate to give you an insight. You can, for instance, let InWatch observe desktop folder for music files. When you download, move or copy music file to desktop, it will immediately move the file to pre-defined destination folder, keeping your desktop clean and well organized. It doesn’t matter which type of files you want InWatch to look for in source location, it handles every file type smartly and perform specified action swiftly. Read More

Send Heavy Files To Your Twitter Friends With FileTweet

Many a times people do not know the email addresses of all of their Twitter followers. This makes it difficult to interact with them on a more personal level. For example, some Twitter followers may simply  be interested in the content that is tweeted by an individual, instead of having any personal relationship or acquaintance with him/her. Twitter itself does not provide a default option to send files via Twitter. FileTweet is an Adobe Air based desktop application that allows users to send files (up to 2 GB) by entering a Twitter username or email address. It is much like SendGenie which we reviewed earlier. However, unlike SendGenie, it is a cross platform application and works with Windows, Mac and Linux based operating systems. All files are saved to the FileTweet server and are accessible via a given URL, which is emailed to the specified email address or to the registered email address of the Twitter user (if the mail is sent by entering the Twitter username).
