"Terrible Terrible Waste of Money"

March 01, 2011  |  By art4hire1956

 |  Version: Classic FTP (Mac) 2.13

Pros

Can't think of a good thing about it other than it downloaded easily! Ugh!

Cons

First attempt to use it was fine. Couple weeks later I tried again and nothing. Bought the program and all it does is bounce in the dock. Never launches. Support tried to help to no avail. I deleted it using AppCleaner.

Summary

Stay away from this program. There are better ones available - even cheap or nearly free ones like Courier (mozilla app). In fact I heartily recommend Courier!

"This Product is NO LONGER FREE LICENCE"

December 01, 2010  |  By bargainhunt2010

 |  Version: Classic FTP (Mac) 2.13

Pros

all basic functions of FTP available.

Cons

Without any previous warning at installation, after 14 days product stopped working - asks to purchase license but advertised as FREE on both download.com and also on apple's website. I may have decided to pay if they would have not tried to hide!

Summary

Basic FTP client - NOT FREE AS ADVERTISED.

"Works, but waay too slow"

April 22, 2010  |  By jimerman

 |  Version: Classic FTP (Mac) 2.13

Pros

It works - it is free, it connects to FTP servers. Haven't done any large file transfers to see how it performs on that end.

Cons

Very slow, no ability to cancel operations, no status bar - those are my complaints.

Summary

Keep looking

"Not that easy to get to know at first"

November 04, 2009  |  By bbnewbie

 |  Version: Classic FTP (Mac) 2.13

Pros

Once I got it to work,it was fine, although not as intuitive as mac programs usually are.I had to seek help from more knowledgeable persons as the help supplied wasn't helpful at all.

Cons

No help under the help menu. Defaulted to Mac Classic which isn't on my computer! Being a total novice I didn't know what it was supposed to do or how it was supposed to work, so I had big problems getting started.

Summary

I would like this product to come with either an online manual, or better still, a pdf manual that can be printed out. The help supplied assumed prior knowledge of the program or at least prior knowledge of FTP clients.As a complete novice, it was like stumbling around in the dark until I found someone who knew what to do to get started. After that it was a doddle. So better help would be my only wish - perhaps one of the members of the Classic Community could put something together and they could assume that the person they are writing for knows nothing about FTP clients.

"works super slow"

August 27, 2009  |  By ionprojekt

 |  Version: Classic FTP (Mac) 2.13

Pros

Easy to use.

Cons

Slow to respond to every click.

Summary

I'd use it if I had a small website with a couple of pages, but it is a drag to use for anything larger than that.

"An excellent FTP ckient. Easy to use and set up."

January 02, 2009  |  By Karl-Erik Hallenius

 |  Version: Classic FTP (Mac) 2.13

Pros

I can't see what more you can demand of an FTP client, but now I am not a very experienced user when It comes to writing HTML-code and uploading the files.
In spite of that, even I succeeded to get it working at the first attempt.

Cons

A great piece of work and I can't find any reason to complain about the performance of Classic FTP.

"Easy, simple... Too simple."

February 25, 2008  |  By sivartis

 |  Version: Classic FTP (Mac) 2.13

Pros

It's easy to use with an uncomplicated interface that's quick to learn.

Cons

My big gripe that made this program instantly unusable to me is the inability to upload from external drives attached to my mac.
