User & Press Reviews

"The little brother of Yummy FTP, with all the features a casual FTP user needs. No compromises have been made where it counts, just a slightly reduced feature set. Highly recommended!"

Beautiful Retina User Interface
The easy to use, hi-definition Retina-display UI features Finder-like hierarchal & column view file browsers, elegant icons, toolbars, and drag & drop throughout, all with a tasteful dash of animations; a design that belies the extensive functionality hidden within, following Apple's philosophy of power in simplicity.

Full protocol set - FTP + FTPS + SFTP
FTP (File Transfer Protocol) the most widely used Internet file transfer protocol, FTPS (FTP over an SSL (Secure Sockets Layer) connection, and SFTP - FTP over an SSH (Secure Shell) connection, are implemented to their fullest extent of their specifications, allowing for the fastest speed of operation - not just transfers... everything is fast and responsive.

Bookmark Manager
A fully fledged Bookmarks manager allows you organize your Bookmarks into folders, create, edit, rename, delete and duplicate them - you can even import the Favorites and Bookmarks from most other major Mac FTP apps.

Turbo-charged Transfers
Yummy FTP's highly tuned, multi-threaded, transfer engine features a built-in 'turbo' mode which automatically maintains several simultaneous connections to the server to maximise the use of available bandwidth and reduce latency.
It's not just fast, it's Super fast!

Automatic Reconnect & Resume
The fully automatic reconnect and resume feature ensures Yummy FTP will always complete the task, whatever happens, by reconnecting and continuing broken transfers without any user interaction until the job is done. While other apps simply display an error message, Yummy FTP takes appropriate action based on the actual message itself, which means you don't have to!

OS Integration
A truly good Mac citizen : Full support for Quick Look with local and remote previews and document icons, FSEvents-driven local views, Full Screen mode, Bonjour zero config setup, App Nap compliant, Developer ID code signed direct-buy or App Store versions, and more.
