Transmit 3 - Powerful file transfer app
Authored by: mahuti on Dec 28, '05 10:55:01AM

I LOVED Transmit 2.0... never had any problems with it. Transmit 3.X though... oh man it has given me some problems. Many times I need to upload and download applications with over 30,000 files in hundreds of nested folders. If ONE of those files gets skipped or screwed up, it could ruin my whole application. Transmit routinely skipped uploading files. or timed out during uploading, even during syncing. It wouldn't have bothered me so much, but the way that it uploaded the files seemed random. It would time out with half the files uploaded in a random order making it next to impossible to figure out which folders had been completely uploaded, and which hadn't. I WANT to like Transmit, but it just seems really sketchy.

YummyFTP has been my FTP app of choice since. I've had much better luck with it. Mixed results though... my business partner hasn't always had so much luck with it, I figured that had more to do with configuration, though. I tried EVERY ftp app for OSX, and the top 2 are definitely Transmit and YummyFTP. I'd recommend YummyFTP if you regularly install big PHP apps, or move large files up and down.
