It is not only web site developers who need to transfer a lot of data online, we all need to share images, videos and web pages online. FTP is a commonly used protocol for exchanging files over any network that supports the TCP/IP protocol. FTP software is what you need to use the protocol. Among many FTP clients available these days on the market, Commander One stands out.
What makes it unique is that the app is actually a file manager featuring built-in FTP client for Mac. Its primary functionality enhances FTP client functionality in a number of ways.
Take, for example, a two-panel interface typical for orthodox file managers. It enables you to have an overview of FTP resources both on server and client at the same time, it also helps you manage files structure in an optimal way. You can also choose to use the panels for viewing FTP servers, thus you can move resources between them without using your Mac’s local disk. Another advantage is that you can edit files and change file permissions directly on the server.
Commander One allows you to work with FTP, SFTP and FTPS protocols. You can integrate Dropbox account – in fact, as many of them as you want to – Google Drive and Amazon S3 storage services into the app, mount iOS and MTP devices on your Mac. Commander One also serves as an archiving utility – all common formats are supported, and features Terminal emulator.
Commander One has two editions – free and paid. FTP client being a more advanced feature is included into the latter. To decide whether the functionality offered is worth the fee, you are given 15-day trial period. If you decide to purchase a license after the trial period is over, see if you are eligible to 50% discount. The latter include switchers from competing products and owners of Total Commander for Windows. Do try it out and let us know your thoughts in the comment section below.
