    Version: Yummy FTP 1.6.1

    Summary

    This review was originally posted on VersionTracker.com.
    I've been using Yummy FTP for some months now and I must say I'm amazed by its intuitiveness, speed, frequent (and useful) upgrades and stability (even for beta versions!) etc. I have used many FTP clients in the past (both on PC and Mac) but none come close to Yummy!

    Jason (the developer) acts as an inspiration to other developers like myself - and (most importantly) speeds up my daily chores of keeping the latest local / remote files synchronised when developing web apps etc.

    Whilst 'spring-loaded folders' would be a good addition (and I'm sure it will be added one day soon), it's hardly an essential feature!! The previous reviewer is very unfair in giving one star - if you don't like the software don't use it, but don't diss it due to the lack of one insignificant feature!!

    Oh, and did I mention how cheap this software is!???

    If I had a hat I'd take it off to you Jason - five stars for a job very well done!! Keep up the good work and you have a customer for life here!

    "Outstanding utility"

    August 29, 2007  |   By group5

    Version: Yummy FTP 1.6.1

    Pros

    As a graphic designer I have had to use every conceivable means of file transfer imaginable. Back in the day it was bulletin boards. Then came Fetch, and much later, newer, more sophisticated apps like Transmit.

    At $25, Yummy FTP is the most outstanding of these products to date, with a feature set that dwarfs all the rest, and with tremendous stability.

    I use it nearly every day to deliver jobs to printers or customers.

    "still no spring laoded folders"

    August 24, 2007  |   By rockerman1

    Version: Yummy FTP 1.6.1

    Summary

    This review was originally posted on VersionTracker.com.
    This dev, has been saying he will add spring loaded folder for like a year.. ) or he said possibly add them) never did,., it is still UGLY but really ugly .. transmit is such a nice and useful tool but yummy does have some advantages, like 100000000 options for a simple user that is looking for power this is not the app, Over crowded with optons that 99% OF USERS WILL NEVER USE.. and the dev. is to proud to have anyone tell him any different.. nice guy though until you do not like something about the app, then he will not say Oh cool thanks and I respect your option. way to over crowed with options and no spring loaded folders.. which really bits.. and I would use fetch or transmit or another one. but for me no spring loaded folders is really what turns me of to this app and the dev, nice way when you are saying how wonderful it is and when you are not well I am sure he will send me like 1 bad email saying bla bl bal.. .. use transmit if you are looking for a powerful and beautiful and 99% stable.. if you want more confusion and ugly interface then look at this app.

    "a world to the wise"

    May 30, 2007  |   By nightrider2w1

    Version: Yummy FTP 1.6

    Summary

    This review was originally posted on VersionTracker.com.
    I have been using yummy for sometime now, 9 months I guess, Great app. lots of features. I have to say though that I can not give it five stars until you implement Spring loaded folders.. IT IS SO USEFUL.


    It handles files well, the interface seems to be well organized but is getting a little crowed for my taste but lots of option..

    I had trouble with yummy not uploading to one of my sites, with SECURE FTP.. keep crashing.. I tried transmit and no problems.. very strange.. normally transmit crashes first.

    well a quick comment on your comment jason. I bought yummy and use it,, when transmit will not get the job done. Like when upload big files. really big files.. but I have to say that . your comment about posting on the yummy site and not hear.. Dude, I bough it, I use it, I like to post here on version tracker as ( I hope) like me many people come here before buying something and check out the reviews. You also said "This will give you, me and hundreds of other Yummy FTP forum users a chance to discuss them in detail - it's your chance to mold the future of Yummy FTP!"

    Yes it is as a paying client. but hey, I like posting here.. AND it is you that should be happy that people post at all, sorry if it is not on our website and you have to search a little. I can only say .. it is in your interested to search and find what people want.. after all it is not free..
    So I give you 4 stars for a good program and a 5th star when you have spring loaded folders.. To anyone who thinks I am being rude.. I am not.. just like to say it like it is!

    "Fantastic! If you do web development, check it out."

    May 28, 2007  |   By linda29

    Version: Yummy FTP 1.6

    Summary

    This review was originally posted on VersionTracker.com.
    I'm a registered user of both Transmit and Yummy FTP. I'm a web developer, and manage several very large web sites (1,000+ files per site). Since I work on several computers from several locations, I live and die by my FTP client.

    I love Transmit, and used it exclusively for a year. I think it is an excellent FTP client. However, there are things about Yummy FTP that make it more suited to my workflow.

    The one specific issue set me in search of another FTP client recently was syncing options. I often prefer to sync my sites by file-size difference rather than modificaiton date (this method is superior for some situations which I won't go into here). Transmit syncs by date-comparison only at this time, and Yummy FTP gives you a choice of date or size.

    Once I started using Yummy FTP, I discovered other advantages it has over Transmit. First, it's faster and handles very large files more reliably (in my experience). Secondly, the ease of right-clicking a remote file or folder and being able to mark that item as excluded from syncs and/or transmits is *awesome*. I know you can set up filter rules in both Transmit and Dreamweaver, but neither of those programs let you just say, "Please just leave this particular file out" without having to write a complex rule. Dreamweaver comes closest to this as it will let you right-click and "cloak" folders, but DW will not let you exclude individual files. Once you start using this feature, you will not want to live without it.

    Yummy FTP also has an extremely intuitive live-editing function that integrates with my text editor (which is TextMate, but it supports all the major editors). Transmit also does a good job at live-editing integration, but Yummy FTP's interface for this is much easier and more intuitive, IMo -- you get a big button of your text editor of choice's icon on the Yummy FTP toolbar. Select anything, hit the button, and you're editing. Very cool.

    So, Yummy got my $25, and I would have considered it a bargain at twice that. One thing only keeps Transmit in my toolkit, and that's the TextMate bundle for Transmit. I use TextMate for all my HTML-authoring, and there is a TextMate bundle that allows upload to my remote server via Transmit with just a keystroke. I'm hoping someone will write a similar bundle for Yummy FTP in the near future.

    "Just 2 things missing"

    May 13, 2007  |   By macsterone

    Version: Yummy FTP 1.6

    Summary

    This review was originally posted on VersionTracker.com.
    Well Yummy is a nice FTP program. works well, I prefer the transmit interface to yummy myself, as it is so laid out so well, and very very easy to understand,but then it crashs often also . So I am using yummy as my main FTP client,2 thing that just don't do it for me.. ONE and the biggest issue is that it does not use spring loaded folders. I wish the Dev, would include this, the next is ( and might have already been implemented I thought someone said was the brushed metal look could be taken away.. ( Have not really had time to look) well I hope so.

    The interface is so full of icons as well.

    I wish it had more of a transmit feel to it, but with the yummy quality. all said it is pretty good. the price is not bad ether, and it works.

    "Almost there"

    April 26, 2007  |   By arrowdirver

    Version: Yummy FTP 1.6

    Summary

    This review was originally posted on VersionTracker.com.
    Have to say that this is nice.. The dev, is very hard headed though when it comes to people not being happy with the program and make not so perfect comments. but that may be taken bad or good. works good , I bought it over a year ago, 2 years in fact. never stuck with it.. the bookmarks is what gets me.. I mean TRANSMIT, crashes all the time for me at least, so i am forced to use this, but the easy access to bookmarks on the connection window as for example transmit has sucks.. another thing that i think would make this a great app would be SPRING LOADED FOLDERS.. transmit exclusive i guess.

    nice app but the lack of these to features and the fact that it is starting to look more like captain FTP with the big buttons.. and the price is fine as well..

    "The best..."

    April 17, 2007  |   By PQXYZ33

    Version: Yummy FTP 1.6

    Summary

    This review was originally posted on VersionTracker.com.

    I'm completely satisfied.

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