Parallels Transporter for Mac seamlessly transfers files from Windows

Parallels, a software program that lets you run a Windows PC on a Mac, and vice versa, is a lifesaver for people who need to run both platforms. Now, the company has released Parallels Transporter for Mac, an app that seamlessly transfers files between your machines to schizophrenic work life.

Fire up this beauty, and the program will move your Windows files to the appropriate places on your Mac with a limited amount of setup. You can choose to transfer files via a Parallels cable, a network or through an external hard drive. Once you’ve set up your computers to make the switch — either by plugging in or typing in the IP address the program give you — all you have to do is sit back and let it do its magic.

Although this app might have a limited audience, it provides a great service and offers a great deal. The app is on sale. For a limited time, you can get the program, normally $39.99, for 99 cents. You could map the drive yourself, but chances are most people are willing to spend a buck to skip the hassle. For Macs, 99 cents for a limited time in the Mac App Store.
