VirusTotal Uploader for Mac uploads your files and then scans them for viruses and malware, using dozens of scanners from its server.

Pros

Detailed info: VirusTotal Uploader is useful not only for quickly uploading files to VirusTotal, but also for displaying the Md5 checksum for each file and the full path directory.

Ease of use: VirusTotal doesn't try to look fancy or sleek. However, its functionality works as advertised. Just drag and drop a file into the window, and presto.

Cons

Minimum scan: VirusTotal scans only about four files at a time, which can seem low when you're scanning large volumes of folders and applications.

Limited use: Though the VirusTotal app removes the upload step from the Web version, you're still forced to visit the website for a complete scan report. It doesn't really save that much time.

Bottom Line

Though it's not a major timesaver compared to the VirusTotal Web app, VirusTotal Uploader for Mac does save time for those who upload apps and files in larger batches. VirusTotal has been a trusted source for crowdsourced file scanning on Windows, and the latest Mac build should help increase the database of scan results, so that Mac users can start to see an improved list of results for common Mac apps.
