- Flexible Favorites for fast server access
- Handy two-pane view
- Fast multiple-connection transfers
- Easy transfer manager
- Synchronization
- Quick Look, CoverFlow, Image Thumbnail view

Scary, wicked fast compared to Transmit 3 — up to 25 times.

4x faster: listing 30,000 remote files.
18x faster: downloading 30,000 small files.
2.25x faster: deleting 30,000 small files.
25x faster: uploading 15,000 small files.


With the brand-new Transmit Disk feature, you can now mount any of your favorites in the Finder itself — even if Transmit's not running. These volumes are real: drag files to your SFTP server, save a small graphic to your Amazon S3 bucket directly from Photoshop, or roll your own iDisk-like backup volume. It's all possible in T4.


What's New in Version 4.4.11

• Transmit Disk is now compatible with OS X 10.11
• Applying S3 permissions is now done recursively
• Transmit now requires OS X 10.9 or newer

Customer Reviews

Buggy. Feels abandoned.

As FTP clients go, this one is pretty and simple, but lacks real features needed by power users. File filtering is really poorly implemented and mostly uselsess. It doesn’t support paths, so if you want to exclude a file from one directory but not from another, you’re out of luck. It tends to choke on large files.

For bugs, the most annoying hast to be the one where it steals focus. All the time. I’ve emailed them directly about it, and they can’t duplicate the issue. But I can duplicate it quite easily on multiple computers. As can other devs I’ve spoken to. There’s been an issue with using SSH keys for many versions now. I doubt that will ever get fixed. The refresh button doesn’t work most of the time. This can and has caused file loss for me.

All in all, I would rather have the uglier, but more reliable (and faster) filezilla than keep dealing with this app.

The BEST FTP Program I have Ever Used!

I have been a long time interarchie user. but recently interarchie and other ftp programs I have tried have been buggy with secure transfers. This program seems to do a great job not losing the connection and resuming file transfers when needed. I am often uploading big files 16 gigs or bigger.

After usying this program for more than a year, I can say without a doubt that this is the BEST FTP program I have ever used. I have been using FTP programs for close to 20 years now, and this is by far the best designed and best functioning FTP program you can find.

seriously better than any other ftp program on the mac

I have used a lot of different ftp programs and usually ended up resorting to command line ftp.
after finding panic’s transmit program I haven’t gone back. It does sftp and I use that exclusively now.
This just works. It takes advantage of multiple downloads at a time, it is fast. The sync just works.. can’t say that about other programs I have used.
And I love the syncing of server connection info across transmit and coda and I also use transmit on my iPad to sometimes tweak stuff in files on my server.
Panic knows what they are doing and transmit is great.
