Description:

Flow is an award-winning, beautiful, fast, and reliable FTP + SFTP client. With URL Copying, Droplets, a built-in editor, and QuickLook, it's no wonder why Flow is the go-to choice for those who want the best.

★ UNPARALLELED SPEED. REALLY. ★
A file-transfer client is only capable of being as good as its connections are. That's why we left nothing to chance: Flow is powered by ConnectionEngine, providing the most modern, efficient, and fast connections in the world. Engineered to take full advantage of multi-connection concurrency, nothing comes close to Flow's resilience, reliability, or speed.

★ COPY AND VIEW URLs ★
Copy or open the URLs to your remote files in a single click. Automatically copy URLs to the clipboard after uploading. Flow pioneered such URL-awareness, so no other app comes close to Flow's deep URL integration.

★ DROPLETS ★
A droplet is a mini-application that lets you upload files insanely fast — in literally zero clicks. Drop a file on a droplet, and boom. The file is uploaded without even opening Flow. A window showing the progress of the upload appears. When the upload is finished, the window disappears. The URL to the uploaded file can even be copied to your clipboard. Droplets in Flow are unmatched by any other app on the planet.

★ EDITING ★
Flow is the backbone for the daily work of thousands of web developers. Flow can edit files on your server in your favorite text editor, like TextMate, or with the built-in editor, replete with a web-preview of your code, tabs, syntax coloring, and even code completion. No matter what editor you use, when you hit "save", the updated file is instantly uploaded to the server.

★ QUICKLOOK ★
Designed exclusively for OS X, Flow has QuickLook just like the Finder. Whether you've got an image, HTML file, PDF, or Keynote presentation — anything — a tap on the spacebar is all it takes to preview your files without opening them.

★ DESIGN ★
You might have noticed that Flow doesn't look like other file transfer clients. When you start to use it, you'll also notice it doesn't feel like other file transfer clients, either. This is no accident.

Flow was designed for simplicity. But like OS X itself, its simplicity belies the power hidden within. The result is an intuitive, elegant, and incredibly functional experience. It's like no other. We're not the only ones who think so, either: Flow took home runner-up for the prestigious Apple Design Awards in 2008.

Just… wow - Before Flow, I was using Cyberduck. Comparing the features to other FTP clients, I never really felt anyone offered anything remarkably different enough worth paying for. When I saw Flow, it was everything that I wanted to see in an FTP client. After purchasing this great app, and using it just to log in and quickly transfer a few files, I feel like I should have paid more. Incredible, you definately get your money's worth… and then some!

Version 1.7.2
Review by azazel-

Buyer Beware - After years of empty promises, missing and/or broken features, this steaming pile of code has been -officially- abandoned by it's creator, as he skips off to join Facebook. So, I wouldn't expect any further app updates, fixes, or support response of any kind.

Review by Blashing.com

she left me . . . - I was using it for a couple of months and liking it a lot . . . it's simplicity, ease of use, and speed were so nice. It also allowed multiple instances so that you could transfer between two ftp sites directly. sweet! Then one day she just stopped working .. she wouldn't respond. I re-installed, re-booted, and re-committed myself to the relationship . . . but she never responded again. So long Flow . . back to FZ, who has never let me down.

Version 1.7.2
Review by Robert Neu

Totally Worthless - Just when I thought I couldn’t find a worse FTP client than FileZilla, I found Flow. This thing is the most god-awful piece of crap I’ve ever had this displeasure of using. It’s slow, it’s buggy, the interface is weird, and there’s honestly no redeeming quality that I can find. Save your five dollars.

Version 1.7.2
Review by Muonic

Software is in Maintenance, Still Pretty Good - This was the first client I used after using primarily "sftp." Older versions where pretty buggy, but I've not had any issues with the newer releases since the author rewrote his transfer system in 1.5 and finally re-added SFTP support. That said, the author has basically abandoned this. I will keep using it until it stops working for me and I hope that is a long time because this has one of the simplest interfaces in transfer clients I've seen. Yes, the sidebar is a little weird, but dragging and dropping from finder works just as well.
