    "Yummy Saved My Site"

    March 2, 2007  |   By RachelZ3

    Version: Yummy FTP 1.5.3

    Summary

    This review was originally posted on VersionTracker.com.
    Getting the "server closed connection" error? Download Yummy FTP.
    My new host was just not working with Transmit, even after I paid to upgrade to 3.5.6. New host tech support was stumped, the nice people at Panic (Transmit) were stumped and said in the end that they had another user with the exact same problem, also fixed with Yummy (later Panic said to turn off passive, but my host said turn on passive, and I had had enough already). We had tried OS 10.3.9, OS 10.4.8, batch, queue, using another ISP in another state, powerbooks and macbookpro, CuteFTP8, Cyberduck, we even tried using a PC with WS_Ftp and Filezilla- NOTHING worked.
    As a last resort, I tried Yummy on the demo version. Right out of the box, Yummy downloaded my whole site without a problem. I could see the logs as it downloaded, I haven't even begun to play with all the options.
    I had to post this feedback, my first, and like others will RUN to give the people at Yummy my money. Bless you Yummy folks.

    "Great performance, stable and an excellent value"

    December 21, 2006  |   By bieljaso

    Version: Yummy FTP 1.5.3

    Summary

    This review was originally posted on VersionTracker.com.
    I had tried several other programs that offered a GUI for ftp/sftp for OSX including fugu. When transfering large directory structures they all would use up all of the CPU and crash part way through the transfer. Yummy FTP was the only program that has realiably transfered large directory structures for me and it doesn't use up all of the CPU. The interface is intuitvie and the transfer progress feedback is as brief or detailed as I like. Buying this software was money well spent for me.

    "The best FTP/SFTP for the Mac"

    December 19, 2006  |   By PQXYZ33

    Version: Yummy FTP 1.5.3

    Summary

    This review was originally posted on VersionTracker.com.
    Since switching from PC/WinXP to Mac/OSX, I have tried every FTP/SFTP app there is for the Mac. I settled first on Transmit (which is a very nice FTP app) and then on Yummy, which is by far, in my opinion, the best of the bunch.

    The DualBrowse feature is a standout!

    The ability to sort folders ahead of files is another plus. The speed at which synchronization is accomplished is impressive.

    The fact that this is one of the few FTP/SFTP apps that does SFTP well as compared to most of the others is a tie-breaker.

    Yummy FTP is a great app! Well worth the registration fee.

    -Don-

    P.S. The developer has been very helpful in responding to support and feature requests.

    I use FTP several times a day. Yummy has made my workflow much better and faster. I love the newly added daul browse feature. Such a great feature never would have thought of it, great work. Keep up the great work.

    "Major League FTP Client"

    November 1, 2006  |   By arcturus1

    Version: Yummy FTP 1.5.2

    Summary

    This review was originally posted on VersionTracker.com.
    Yummy FTP really has it going now. Filters (which I grumped about earlier), are flexible, organized well, and work reliably. YFTP can act as a browser for local web site files, flexibly specify applications (such as Dreamweaver) via keystroke to edit locally, then synchronize/upload to the remote server. This affords the nicest workflow for web site design and maintenance that I've seen to date. Essential Applescripts are included, which makes things even more efficient. Information is neatly organized on multi-pane windows, so I'm not always moving overlapping windows around. No crashes to date.
    I admit to being an FTP junkie, and have Fetch, Transmit and Interarchy licenses. While I'll always keep Interarchy around, I'm coming to the conclusion that, for 95% of my FTP tasks, the YFTP workflow is the fastest and most direct of the half-dozen FTP clients that I've tried.

    "Very fast, very reliable"

    July 18, 2006  |   By gordonbrown

    Version: Yummy FTP 1.5

    Pros

    Tried em all (Fetch, Transmit, Interarchy, Captain FTP, etc) but Yummy was by far the fastest. But above all, when the others fell over because of connection timeouts or whatever, Yummy was the only one that automatically retried, resumed and completed the job.

    "Any Unzip?"

    June 15, 2006  |   By donhinkelman

    Version: Yummy FTP 1.5.1

    Summary

    This review was originally posted on VersionTracker.com.
    Lots of features, but my number one need is remote unzip. Downloaded Yummy, searched the menus, feature list, and help but appears this is not provided. Transmit and Fetch also have no unzip. Only RBrowser appears to feature it, but I like Yummy's interface much better. Will upgrade my rating when unzip is offered.

    "Filters still need work."

    May 24, 2006  |   By arcturus1

    Version: Yummy FTP 1.5

    Summary

    This review was originally posted on VersionTracker.com.
    After creating five filters, I decided to delete the first one, but couldn't find a way to do it without cutting and pasting the others upwards. In addition, the unfiltered files are highlighted in red in the browser window, which I did not find attractive. Finally, one of the filters ceased to function.
    This is probably an easy task for the developer to rectify, and Yummy FTP has a large feature set in a similar way to Transmit. Once, the filters are fine-tuned, they should differentiate this app nicely for those who require this functionality. Given that it's only at version 1.5, it's going to be a real contender if it isn't one already.
    The name's kind of weird though... Maybe I'm not passionate enough about File Transfer Protocol to compare it with something to eat?
