Mac App Store

Today – September 1st, 2021 – marks the 10 year anniversary of Yoink being on the Mac App Store.

A Blast from the Past

Check out Federico Viticci‘s review of Yoink 1.0 over on MacStories.

Look at that UI… 😳

Yoink’s very first review on the Mac App Store

Let the celebration commence

To mark the occasion, Yoink is ~37% off on the Mac App Store for a limited time.
I’m also giving away a couple of promo codes on Twitter and Facebook – with a little luck, you might get Yoink for free there!

Thank you all for your support over the years, I appreciate it tons.

While Transloader is able to download all kinds of file links, it does not directly support downloading videos from YouTube, for example.

That’s where Downie by Charlie Monroe comes in.

Enter Downie

Downie lets you easily download videos from thousands of different sites.
Just copy-paste the link of a video you find on YouTube, or Vimeo – or any number of video hosting sites – to Downie, and it’ll download the video.
It’s that easy.

Downie and Transloader

Use Transloader in combination with Downie, and you can download videos you come across on your iPhones and iPads on a Mac remotely.
Set up a Link Action for YouTube links, and Transloader on Mac will forward those to Downie, which will download them right away.

Setting up a Link Action in Transloader

In Transloader’s preferences, select Actions and add a Link Action. Configure it to launch Downie for links that point to youtube.com:

Now, anytime you assign your Mac a YouTube link with Transloader, the Mac app will forward it to Downie for download:

Quick Tip

To avoid Downie potentially asking for user input while you’re away, open its preferences, select Advanced and select Run in automated mode.

And that’s it!
