FTP don’t work

When you want use this app for ftp, better find another. ForkLift very often showing folders on FTP as empty when to example Cyberduck show and download without problems this same folders! Not wort buying for FTP.
There was no update over half year!

The best is now the worst

This was once a great file manager. However, this and previous version result in the whole mac freezing and completely unresponsive.
I did contact support about this issue quite some time ago, however, they apparently don’t feel like fixing this.


This version and previous for that matter cause mac to freeze and ultimately only way out is to reboot. Sadly this wasn’t fixed for some time. I strongly recommend to get another client like Transmit. Apparently BinaryNights is not interested in faultess product just to rip you off..
