    "YummyFTP is a dud..."

    June 12, 2008  |   By decadence


    This review was originally posted on VersionTracker.com.
    YummyFTP is

    * ugly (nice icon and website though)
    * sucks up background cycles like nobody's business

    While Interarchy is sitting in the background with several windows open, looking like part of the OS, and using only .1% of CPU time, YummyFTP is jumping between 2 and 10% of CPU time.

    And it looks like hell when it's open.

    Bought this one at MacZot for $10. Really regret it as there is absolutely no way I want to look at this oaf or let it steal background cycles. Just wanted a backup FTP client in case Interarchy is ever flakey.

    I bought YummyFTP based on the outlandish 5 star rating it has here on VersionTracker. I am very surprised at this rating.

    Horrible registration process through esellerate.

    This is really a beginner's FTP client for somebody who opens and then closes their FTP client not for someone who lives with SFTP open all day long.
