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"

 |  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!

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.

What's new in version 2.0.7

Yet we would like to release another beta version of ForkLift 2. Why beta again? Because ForkLift learned the German language and before releasing an official localized version we would like to get enough feedback in order to find any little typo leftover that might be hiding amongst the lines. Besides the localization we also made two other singnificant improvements:

1. We have rewritten the entire WebDAV engine from scratch as it was the last piece of code taken over from the 1.x version. We hope that this will raise the reliability of WebDAV connections to the next level.

2. We had to restructure the entire code in a way that we can maintain two versions, the one for the Mac App Store and the one distributed via our website. It was quite a task to build a new structure that allows us to keep two versions up to date simultaneously and efficiently. Finally, after neglecting sleep once again for a while, we tackled it and the way should be straightened to head forward to the App Store.

Finally we improved many smaller bits that you will hopefully notice and thus be happy about them.
