    Hey!
    I own a macbook and an iMac. I use my iMac as my primary device and macbook for programming and research/school stuff. I want to know about an application which will automatically send the new songs i download in my iMac to the macbook as soon as it connects to the wireless network. Maybe it works as a shared folder or something?
    If you know anything that can help me, please tell me!
    Thanks a lot!!!

    Have a look at Keyboard Maestro or Hazel in conjunction with Dropbox/Skydrive/Google Drive or some other online repository?

    if you mount the macbook drive/folder on the imac when it appears you can use that as a trigger for do something when a script/automator workflow to do what you want.

    if that is too many steps then i think a you would need something like applescript

    The app ControlPlane can be setup to trigger actions when it detects wifi. You should be able to have ControlPlane run an Applescript to transfer the music for you.

    I love Dropbox. I also love Synchronize! Pro X. Many Mac users swear by ChronoSync. The takeaway message is that you have several options, any of which is more than adequate to your needs.
