Editors' Review

+

Transmit for Mac is a full service FTP client for the OS X platform. Transmit looks great, is easy to use, and should be a welcome program for anyone who has had difficulties transferring files via FTP in the past. It also has some welcome features that help integrate it smoothly with your system as a whole.

Pros

Favorites syncing: Being able to sync your favorites smoothly via a number of different methods is a very welcome feature. With Transmit, you have the option of syncing your favorites via Dropbox, which is an excellent choice for people who use multiple platforms but want to keep their favorites synced. If you're an iCloud user, you can also sync your favorites via iCloud.

Good visual interface: The interface in Transmit is great looking, and very easy to understand. It is divided into two panels, one of which represents your local system, the other which represents the system you're connecting to. This is easy to use and understand for veterans of this type of program and first-time users alike.

OS X integration: Transmit integrates with OS X, so you can mount external servers that you've connected to like disks in the Finder menu.

Cons

Cost compared to competition: There are several competitor programs, which do essentially the exact same things, but for free.

Bottom Line

If you're looking for an FTP app that integrates smoothly with a Mac operating system, then Transmit is a very good option. Finder and iCloud integration make it work very smoothly within the Mac ecosystem. The only real drawback is that there are competitor products that transfer files over FTP very well, but for no money.

Editors' note: This is a review of the trial version of Transmit for Mac 4.4.8.

"Transmit is almost perfect"

November 12, 2010  |  By sherpadog

 |  Version: Transmit 4.1.4

Pros

Navigation and customization are the best yet. I have been using this app for years and will continue to do so.

Cons

Why in heaven's name did they not even allow a tool bar icon for disconnect. Please bring that feature back. Going to the file menu or using the keyboard shortcut are fine but why throw away another way to disconnect?

Summary

This is my favorite way to FTP files. The app gets better user interface and speed thumbs up for me. To the developers: please bring back the tool bar disconnect feature. I like Fetch very much but have been hooked on Transmit for several years. It gets prettier and faster with each major release.
