Editors' Review

Cyberduck for Mac downloads and uploads remote files using an FTP, SFTP, or a WebDAV connection, as well as online storage services like Google Drive and Amazon S3 Storage. It's a well-built, accessible app that does its job without any issues, though its transfer speeds may not be the best.

Pros

Well integrated: The app integrates well with OS X -- you have the ability to Quick Look remote files, enter fullscreen mode, and even save log-in data to your keychain. While nothing fancy, we've found the interface to be usable and easy to work with.

Good platform support: When creating a new connection, you are given the option to choose from nine protocols, including three cloud storage services -- Amazon S3 Storage, Google Drive, and Rackspace -- and enter information like server, username, and password.

Convenient: Two nice touches are the abilities to save the password to your OS X keychain and to automatically reopen the connection the next time you launch the app.

Cons

Transfer speeds vary: For a server on the same network, it took us less than 30 seconds to download and upload an 80MB file. But when using Google Drive, the times increased to 40 seconds to download and a minute for the upload.

Bottom Line

If you're looking for an easy-to-use FTP client that packs some powerful features, Cyberduck for Mac turns out to be a good choice. Whether you need built-in support for Google Drive or Amazon S3, or just a client that lets you manage file permissions, reveal hidden files, and place speed limits, this free app will peak your interest.

    Version: Cyberduck 4.4

    Pros

    it is 100% free, it may asks for a donation when you quit

    Cons

    the interface is fairly intiutive, when ftp address is stored, then you can drag & drop file to & from any remote location like you do it on you external drive

    Summary

    i'm using it for the last 7 years & updates are published on a regular basis, many webpage creator apps accept cyberduck as ftp client

    "Very close to totally useless"

    October 02, 2013   |   By lodurr

    Version: Cyberduck 4.3.1

    Pros

    Works once you figure out how to use it.

    Cons

    Utterly opaque UI.

    Summary

    I've been a computer professional for 25 years, a lot of that providing level 1 through 3 end user support, and the Cyberduck UI makes no sense to me. Find something else, this one will make your life miserable.

    "Worked great! Yay!"

    May 22, 2013   |   By goldinhome

    Version: Cyberduck 4.3.1

    Pros

    Fairly intuitive interface. Drag and drop. Did the job. And it was FREE!

    Cons

    Didn't seem to like to upload too many files at once. Sometimes didn't seem to want to Overwrite.

    Summary

    First, I downloaded FileZilla but it couldn't make a connection to my main file locker. So I got CyberDuck and it had no problem with the same address. Sometimes it would overwrite a file like I wanted it to, but sometimes it gave me an error and I had to delete the old version first. Other times, if I tried to upload too many files at once, I'd get an error, but that could be because of my own wireless network at home. When I use Comcast's own web-based uploading, I have to do one file at a time and then choose each one individually and make it "public." An enormous pain. CyberDuck uploaded them as public, saving me alot of time, and I could drag and drop. Love it!

    "You simply can't beat it"

    April 08, 2012   |   By la_computer_guy

    Version: Cyberduck 4.2.1

    Pros

    Connects to all kinds of servers, including Rackspace Cloud and Amazon S3. Fast, intuitive, and free. I love the "edit" function, which lets me open and edit remote files locally, and Cyberduck will automatically re-upload the edited file. Everyone I work with now simply refers to it as "The Duck"...

    Cons

    Cons? It's awesome and free.
