Transmit 4 is the ultimate FTP + SFTP + WebDAV + Amazon S3 file transfer client on the Mac.

You need to transfer files. Maybe to an FTP or SFTP server, or the cloud via Amazon S3, or using WebDAV. You maintain a website, do backups, or upload photos. You need Transmit, the #1 Mac OS X FTP client.


- Protocol power: FTP (Normal, Implicit SSL, and TLS/SSL), SFTP, Amazon S3, and WebDAV (HTTP and HTTPS)
- Flexible Favorites for fast server access
- Handy two-pane view
- Fast multiple-connection transfers
- Easy transfer manager
- Synchronization
- Quick Look, CoverFlow, Image Thumbnail view
- Places for one-click folder access
- FXP Support
- Bandwidth Limiting
- So much more!


Scary, wicked fast compared to Transmit 3 — up to 25 times.

4x faster: listing 30,000 remote files.
18x faster: downloading 30,000 small files.
2.25x faster: deleting 30,000 small files.
25x faster: uploading 15,000 small files.


With the brand-new Transmit Disk feature, you can now mount any of your favorites in the Finder itself — even if Transmit's not running. These volumes are real: drag files to your SFTP server, save a small graphic to your Amazon S3 bucket directly from Photoshop, or roll your own iDisk-like backup volume. It's all possible in T4.



Release Notes:

• Transmit Disk is now compatible with OS X 10.11
• Applying S3 permissions is now done recursively
• Transmit now requires OS X 10.9 or newer

Fantastic app! - Very stable, very powerful, and just generally does everything I need it to. They also have amazing support, which can be seen with this update, where they fixed compatibility with Mountain Lion just a day or two after the issue popped up, even though they had no need to for months. Fantastic app I'd recommend to anyone that uses FTP, SFTP, and just about anything else.

Version 4.4.8
Review by Samuel Farrell

Seriously, 30 dollars for this? - The most unreliable FTP client I’ve ever used. Slow. Filezilla looks like a cheetah compared to this thing. UI looks nice, but what does it matter if the app doesnt work? This is third time I’ve lost data with a disk mounted because it failed to save, then decided that the file it failed to save should get uploaded, resulting in a zero kb file. Oh, gee, thanks. Is there no internal error checking? I get ‘credentials invalid’ all that time, but then magically on the 3rd try to connect to a server it will work. Never had this issue with any other client. Hasn’t been updated in forever, just like Coda. Don’t buy from Panic. They don’t update their software, and don’t provide solid tools. As a developer, my tools are the last thing I want to be fighting with. I spend more time trying to get Panic’s programs to behave (or going in and trying to recover data) than actually getting work done.

Good for light load ... - Nicely done but not stable enough for heavy lifting. The mounted disks just vanish under heavy load albeit the process is still up. Needs manual force quit & remounting. On light load works very well.

Review by TBobo

The BEST FTP Program I have Ever Used! - I have been a long time interarchie user. but recently interarchie and other ftp programs I have tried have been buggy with secure transfers. This program seems to do a great job not losing the connection and resuming file transfers when needed. I am often uploading big files 16 gigs or bigger. After usying this program for more than a year, I can say without a doubt that this is the BEST FTP program I have ever used. I have been using FTP programs for close to 20 years now, and this is by far the best designed and best functioning FTP program you can find.

Good for WordPress - It’s good and does what it says. I have never really had problems with the application and mainly use it for reupdating my themes on WordPress and managing my website’s hosting.

Version 4.4.11
Review by Hooria

not a great app - I bought this app for exchanging large files (results of simulations) between Mac and linux clusters. Unfortunately, it is quite slow. The subdirectroies donot update quickly, and I have to refresh a few times (because TRANSMIT does not respond) the host folders, to be able to transfer the files back to my Mac. I was hoping that it would be as good as SSH secure file transfer, at least for the data transfer, but unfortunately it is not.

Review by JordanAE

DO NOT BELIEVE THE HYPE - This is (aside from the UI) a truly horrific FTP application. You cannot easlily have simultaneous downloads, which drastically reduces speed, no support for multi-segmented downloads, which also drastically reduces speed. TL;DR iGetter is LIGHTYEARS faster, FileZilla also blows this app out of the water and it's free. Do NOT waste your money like I did.
