Buckets is an S3 client that allows you to easily manage your files, folders and, of course, Buckets!

No longer will you need to use the web interface or purchase an expensive 'do-everything' app with features you don't need. Buckets was made to be a more affordable solution for the person who only needs to work with S3.

Perfect Simple S3 Client - Does exactly what I need in an easy to use app. Surprisingly quick compared to other S3 clients I've used.

Review by Bfegan

Nice Design, but crashes and missing a few key features - This app looks great, and I love the idea of a simple way to upload files to S3; I agree completely with the Buckets developers who said there’s no need for a huge “do-everything” app. That being said, there are some issues. Most importantly; I’ve opened the app 3 times and tried to upload ~10mb folders each time. Each time it froze for a bit before starting the transfer, twice it’s crashed completely and once it timed out around 80% of the way through the upload. That’s unacceptable, especially as my bulk uploads are typically much larger and I was only testing with 10mb folders. Buckets is also missing a few key features that I’d really like to see. As a bulk uploader, I want to be able to see my transfer speed on the Transfers panel and I’d really love to be able to set a maximum upload speed so that long bulk uploads don’t choke my bandwidth.

Review by Wysguy72

Simple, but missing useful features. - Buckets is useful for connecting and viewing S3 buckets. Downloads work well for me, and have not failed. Deleting individual files has not yet worked. This is this biggest drawback with the application so far. For $.99, the utility works well but I would be willing to pay more to get all features working.

Review by Nate Abele

Great if you only need to move one file at a time - Stalls out or crashes when copying more than a few files. I mean, really? File management software that doesn’t do bulk operations? I would rather pay more for something more reliable (which is what I’ll now have to do).
