I wrote about the demise of Transmit for iOS last month. Since then, I’ve had several people ask me about replacements. Federico Viticci sums up the options nicely. I settled on FileBrowser, which I used to use before Transmit was released. It’s not as pretty, but it gets the job done and, surprisingly, supports iOS 11 better than Transmit does.
Transmit is the undisputed king of file transfer applications on the Mac. It’s been around for 20 years, and if you need to send files to servers, there’s nothing better. I was frankly surprised yesterday when they released Transmit 5. It seems like just yesterday I was buying Transmit 4 but it turns out that was actually seven years ago.
While I don’t use Transmit every day, when I do need to perform a file transfer operation from my Mac, there’s nothing better. This is an excellent tool to have in your belt. They have a discount on the new version (from $45-$35) but it’s only good for a week. If you ever need to perform file transfers, get in on the discount now. I already did.
