Transmit FTP is a modern FTP application that supports a range of transfer types and services. Not only does it support FTP and SFTP, but it also allows you to transfer files to and from services like Amazon S3, or set up your own WebDAV storage.
Transmit gives Mac OS X users highly usable file transfer that looks right at home in OS X. Its interface has echoes of regular FTP software, yet it has been updated to make it look just like the OS X Finder. Users browse their local files on the left and remote files on the right, and there are attractive icons to make each service stand out in the list.
Panic, the develops of Transmit, claim that its code has been tweaked to make it faster. This speed boost applies to the application and to its file transfers.
Other benefits include:
- Mount remote storage as though it is a local disk.
- Click the Sync button to create an exact copy of a local folder on a remote server.
- Dual pane or single pane view, with the option of viewing two local browsers side by side.
- File upload progress and overall progress shown in one compact progress bar.
If you're a user of Transmit version 3, you can upgrade the software to Transmit version 4 for a reduced price. See the Panic website for details.
