Forklift FTP for $2

As part of Two Dollar Tuesday, Forklift FTP is $2, down from $20.

Personally, Forklift is my FTP client of choice. I’ve used them all (Yummy, Transmit, Captain, Fetch) and I always come running back to Forklift. It’s easily the most beautiful, most powerful, and fastest of the bunch.

If you have any other FTP client, you owe it to yourself to pick up Forklift before the price goes back up.

Thanks Caleb. $2 is madness!

I’ve tried the demo a few times over the past couple years and while it seemed fine I never felt the need to switch. I’m curious Caleb, what do you find more powerful than say, Transmit?

Todd,

The reason why I chose Forklift over Transmit is mostly interface, though I did find Forklift to be faster at uploading files (and more affordable). Forklift has a very finder-esque interface, and is built around it’s spectacular sidebar. When I tried out Transmit, I found the lack of a proper sidebar to be very annoying.

Also, with Forklift you have the option of having both browser panes be remote (or local). This is incredibly useful when you need to quickly diff some folders on your system or on a server. If I remember correctly, Transmit has one pane for local, and one for remote, but you can’t have both be one type.

In fact, Forklift’s local capabilities are so great that I tend to use it instead of Finder. :slight_smile:

There are a few other things that come to mind (the ability to queue file transfers while synchronizing folders is nice, instead of being locked out to that “Synchronization” screen), but you’d really have to use it for a while to get a feel for the immense power and flexibility of the program. For $2, I don’t see how you could go wrong.

Even though I also use Transmit, $2 is a pretty good deal. :slight_smile:

Transmit can do this also.
