Editors' review

ForkLift one of the best FTP/SFTP clients and file management programs available for the Mac. With its fast, flexible, and friendly interface (especially elegant for an FTP program, with tabs, spring-loaded folders, and one- and two-pane options), Forklift delivers on two of the main criteria for an app of its kind: speed and ease of use.

This app is even faster now that it handles multiple channel transfers over remote connections, and a ton of powerful features can make your work flow easier, such as previewing, batch functions, any-to-any copying (between multiple different devices or sources), filters and favorites (excellent for grouping project resources), and a built-in Application Deleter. Forklift can also open in Terminal, and it can sync or merge the contents of two folders in different locations. Any professional who moves a lot of files around on a daily basis should try out Forklift's 15-day demo.

    "Fast and Beautiful"

    January 31, 2013   |   By CalebGrove

    Version: ForkLift 2.0.7


    Great interface
    Easy to use
    Accurate "time remaining" clock.


    Not as solid as Yummy FTP.


    Forklift has become my go-to FTP client for almost everything. It's fast, easy, and beautiful. The shortcuts in the sidebar are a lifesaver. The only reason why I hang on to Yummy FTP is for syncing the server to a local folder (for Time Machine backup-ability), as Forklift is more prone to have errors which pause the entire transfer. This can be problematic when it's running at 3:00 am!

    However, as I said, Forklift has become my default client for all my FTP needs! Great job developers!

    "Really fast, flexible"

    October 15, 2011   |   By pkeedy

    Version: ForkLift 2.0.7


    Fast transfers, allows deleting of AppleTV ver.1 files on ATV. Logical layout so easy to use.


    None for me.


    I upgraded from FileZilla and couldn't believe the speed difference going from my iMac to my AppleTV. Really easy to delete files on the ATV.
