Sorterox for Mac is an application for copying, sorting, and organizing files and folders on your Mac. Sorterox for Mac is not available from the App Store but is readily available from numerous download sites. The demo version adds a couple of letters to all file and folder names, but this can be defeated by purchasing the full version for $9.99. Sorterox for Mac installs easily.
Sorterox for Mac can be used by dragging and dropping files or folders on the icon, or by navigating and selecting the files or folders to work with. If specific actions are not provided, a set of default rules are used to indicate how to sort and process the files given to Sorterox for Mac. You can sort and copy files by almost any possible criteria and automate tasks such as placing files in folders by day or month, by name, or by any other order you choose. The entire process is performed quickly and a log entry is created for each sorted file. As part of the sorting you can move or copy files, or use Sorterox for Mac to make backup copies of valuable files by simply dragging the files or folders to the icon. Sorting algorithms can be chosen, although the defaults worked well for us.
In our testing Sorterox for Mac worked fine. The interface is easy to understand and use, the preferences are easy to set, rules can be created simply, and the application delivers the results without a problem. Sorterox for Mac quickly becomes one of those applications you don't think about but use all the time.
Editors' note: This is a review of the trial version of Sorterox for Mac 1.0.Sorterox - Sort, organize, copy and backup files and folders with a single drag & drop - Download Video Previews:
From Omid Pajuhideh:
Sorterox is the simple way to sort, organize and copy hundreds or thousands of your files and folders with a single Drag-and-Drop using your own rules.
In the daily work flow there are too many files to sort, copy and backup, when organizing photos for your website, blog, and backups, when duplicating files and folders, making copies of audio and image files for your iPad, iPod or iPhone, and when you want to organize your downloaded files. Why spend valuable time sorting, moving and copying each item by hand? Use Sorterox to sort, organize, copy and backup hundreds or thousands of files and folders with a single drag-and-drop.
Features: Sorts, organizes and copies your files automatically into the right folder with a powerful engine, making your daily work flow easier. You no longer need to move or copy each file by hand. Put all your files in only one folder and Sorterox sorts and organizes them into different folders for you. Sorts and organizes your files and folders dependent on the rules which you create for your own needs and priorities. The Auto Sort engine sorts and organizes files inside the source folders automatically in the background and logs the sorting process in a log file. It can monitor two source folders simultaneous in background. In order to sort and organize different file types into different folders, create a Rule for each file type. Creating more than one rule for a file type let you sort the same file type in different folders when you use keywords or file date created or modified. The powerful sorting engine allows you to sort and organize files by file type and keywords. Additional it can limit the sorting process by file date created and modified. If needed, it creates a new folder for each day, month or year and puts the files into the folder. Supports drag-and-drop. An intelligent Drag-and-Drop engine makes the application easy to use.

- Improvement of file management.
- Improvement of sorting routines.
- GUI color change.
