Editors' review

This application has weathered its early growing pains (strict shareware limitations), to become one of the standout FTP clients for the Mac platform. Yummy FTP is a comprehensive and well-rounded choice, with features such as remote editing, remote previewing, AppleScript capability, and a fully customizable interface. In addition to playing host to some advanced functionality, Yummy FTP features basic staples such as bookmarks, SFTP support, customizable views, and multiple simultaneous downloads. We heartily recommend this client to both pro users and home hobbyists.

    "Outstanding product"

    March 05, 2011

    Version: Yummy FTP 1.8.4

    Pros

    Very flexible and clean ftp/sftp client. Much, much nicer than Cyberduck or any others that I have tried. Well worth the money.

    Cons

    Idiosyncratic management of browser window widths

    Summary

    I have been using Yummy FTP for several years now, and cannot recommend it highly enough (10 stars). Aside from its excellent upload/download capabilities, it is the best file sync client I have found.

    Summary

    The best FTP/SFTP app there is continues to get even better!

    Yummy is well worth the price if you want a serious, stable, feature-rich FTP/SFTP app.

    Version: Yummy FTP 1.8

    Summary

    I simply can NOT believe it, this software just got far yummier!

    Seriously though, how many software programs do you have where 40% of what it does is in direct response to what you may NEED?? And exactly how many original software authors will get back to you in 2 days like the head Yummy?

    "User (below) is a dud..."

    November 27, 2008   |   By Sooth Sayer

    Version: Yummy FTP 1.7.2

    Summary

    This review was originally posted on VersionTracker.com.
    Yummy FTP is the best FTP client for the Mac - Interarchy really is not.

    Looks nicer? That it purely subjective. I think Yummy is spot on!

    I personally find Interarchy's interface very irritating. For example, it has to reconnect *every* time you want to do anything, like even when changing between List and Column view. How brain dead is that?

    For your measly $10 you got an incredibly useful and powerful tool - I would gladly have paid the $59 that your precious Interarchy cost, because Yummy is worth it in time saved alone

    "YummyFTP is a dud..."

    June 12, 2008   |   By decadence

    Version: Yummy FTP 1.7.2

    Summary

    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.

    "best I've found - worth every penny"

    February 15, 2008   |   By marmatkat

    Version: Yummy FTP 1.7

    Summary

    This review was originally posted on VersionTracker.com.
    I'm new to the Mac, and I needed a SFTP program that had a rock-solid
    synchronize/mirror feature. I looked at every major program available,
    and found them all lacking. Yummy FTP's sync is fast, supports
    filters/exclusion, and lets me know exactly what it's about to do
    before it does its magic. I'm extremely demanding of my software, so
    it is a real relief to have a program I can trust. Thanks so much!

    "the new standard"

    Version: Yummy FTP 1.7

    Summary

    This review was originally posted on VersionTracker.com.
    It's not that I don't like most of the other FTP clients out there, I do, it's just that since I've found Yummy FTP it's the only one I use. Really fast. Great interface. Stable.

    "I agree: The best advanced FTP/SFTP client"

    November 20, 2007   |   By PQXYZ33

    Version: Yummy FTP 1.7

    Summary

    This review was originally posted on VersionTracker.com.
    I'll repeat what I said before:

    * Stable.
    * One of the very few FTP apps that I have found that does SFTP without a glitch.
    * Relatively fast at synchronization.
    * Dual Browse" works really well (and sticks, unlike Transmit's similar feature).
    * Responsive developer.

    Note: I have tried every FTP/SFTP client for the Mac, and Yummy is by far my favorite. Of course I don't give a darn about spring-loaded folders. :=)
