We are delighted to announce Cloud Mate 1.4, with twist for the developers (and the very curious) amongst you this time! We are introducing the iCloud Monitor which displays in real-time all of the activity (uploads, downloads, conflicts, and errors) in your iCloud.
We use this ourselves to help debug our own iOS and Mac Apps that use iCloud. Debugging the iCloud will never be the same again!
We have just released Cloud Mate 1.3.2, which includes some minor bug-fixes/performance improvements
- Start-up time (after initial index) is now dramatically faster
- Cleaned up notifications for compound files (such as Keynote/Pages documents). You will now only get one notification per file
You can update directly within the app, or by going here
We have just release a minor bug fix (with a single feature thrown in) for Cloud Mate. This version should address a crash during start-up that some users experienced, and adds a share button to the native Cloud Mate window.
If you are not experiencing the problem, Cloud Mate will automatically download the update. If you are, please use our update page
We are delighted to announce the immediate availability of Cloud Mate 1.3. As always we’ve included the normal “Stability improvements”, but we’ve also added a feature we just know is going to delight you… iCloud… in Finder!
That’s right, you can now see iCloud as it’s own drive, with easy to identify folder icons. Even Photo Stream gets to play, appearing as a single folder with all your images inside… just like Cloud Mate has always provided!
Registered users can just run Cloud Mate to launch an automatic download of the update, new users can buy it here

Cloud Mate is Finder for your iCloud. It enables you to easily see and manipulate all of your iCloud documents from a single app. In Cloud Mate 1.1 we added support for Photo Stream meaning that for the first time you didn’t need to run a dedicate app just to easily see all your pictures.
Cloud Mate 1.2 refines the experience. We’ve made a host of changes to polish the experience for you, here are the changes in this release:
- Improved navigation with back/forward and path drop-downs
- Added “Organise by…” options to the toolbar
- Introduced Mountain Lion notifications for changed documents in your iCloud including ability to chose which apps notify of changes
- Start-up performance greatly improved
- Added the ability to check for and download Cloud Mate updates
- Cloud Mate now remains running when its window is closed
- Fixed an issue where the name of a known app sometimes returned the bundle display name
- Fixed a bug where apps that were not immediately recognised would not automatically update when changes occurred in iCloud
- Fixed a bug where keyboard navigation of apps would not work
- Fixed an issue where window size and layout was not remembered correctly between runs
- Fixed an issue where desired icon size was not remembered between invocations
- Fixed an issue where the Quick Look popover may be too small
Update: We’ve just released a 1.2.1 update to address 3 issues that were relatively common. Those who have already updated to 1.2 can use the “check for updates” menu item in the Cloud Mate menu to automatically download. Cloud Mate 1.1 users please just use the link above.
