The gold standard of macOS file transfer apps just drove into the future. Transmit 5 is here. Upload, download, and manage files on tons of servers with an easy, familiar, and powerful UI. Transmit 5 has…


Transmit now connects to 11 new cloud services, like Backblaze B2, Box, Google Drive, DreamObjects, Dropbox, Microsoft Azure, and Rackspace Cloud Files.

And yes, Transmit still handles the classics — FTP, SFTP, WebDAV, and S3 — better than any. We make complex services drag-and-drop simple.


Transmit 5 now includes Panic Sync, our secure and fast way to sync your sites. And our robust File Sync feature adds support for local-to-local and remote-to-remote sync, while also giving you more fine-grained control.


We disassembled Transmit’s engine and rebuilt it, again, to significantly boost speed. T5 is better at multithreading and smarter about complex folders. Plus it’s got a new activity view to better focus on what Transmit is doing right now. It’s very fast.


- Get Info Sidebar. Inspect items as you browse, right in the browser.
- Batch Rename. Powerful, flexible, and built-in for local or remote.
- Places Bar. Jump to your favorite folders with a single click.
- Keys. Manage and generate secure keys right in Transmit.
- Tags
- Local-local sync
- 2-Factor Login
- Open in Terminal
- Brand New UI
- Extra Large Amazon S3 File Support
- And So Much More

We hope you enjoy using Transmit. Hit us up anytime if you have any ideas on how to make it even better!

Subscription madness, sad.

I can understand the subscription model for apps like Things, 1Password, etc. which are using servers to host & sync their assets. But for tools running independently, like this one, this is not acceptable.

Standalone purchase in the AppStore should be a default for that kind of tools (not requiring servers), and a subscription model should have at least some substantial grounds (not greediness).


Developer Response ,

The App Store subscription of Transmit entitles you to all major updates automatically. The direct version still exists at $45 from our website, but major updates will be an additional charge. The choice is yours!
