No i Cloud support

Ive been using this for some time to manage filed more easilly than the built in finder app. It works well especially managing data and my various HDDs etc. I recently wanted to sync and mode a bunch of data up to me icloud and noticed that not only is icloud drive not intergrated even the connection conection manage doesn't support it. I can connect to basically every cloud storage service OTHER than icloud. This seams like a pretty big feature gap especially for a core MAC product.

Great Mac finder, especially reliable, clear UI like Total Commander

Very pleased to see this. Please continue developing ;-) . Devs seem responsive: I asked for alternate line shading in the browser….and it soon appeared in an update! Plug in options to add features would be nice. TC (TotalCommander) has been in development for so long it has most features one could possibly dream of-but I never use Win any more. Wonder what the Commander One development plan looks like??

I wish this were available the first 6 or 8 years after I switched to Macs! I was in total TotalCommander withdrawal (except for use in a VM). So I learned to use finder & pathfinder and don’t use CommanderOnePro as my only finder. But CommanderOne is solid and great! E.g. the archive features (different compress engines builtin, plus ability to view archive as a directory-without dearchiving) are better than most other mac file managers. And the design with the option of old fashioned function keys for copy/move--looks clunky at first--but is 100% more reliable than drag/drop for critical file management tasks. Plus this’ll give me directory sizes for internal or external drives instantly—unlike other finders which often churn away or fail to update.

The best dual-panel file-manager on mac (updated)

As a long time dual-panel file-manager addict, I have had at leaset one such on every OS starting from Norton Commander on DOS. Commander Pro deploys nearly identical hotkeys and functions from NC, which gives a flat learning curve. On top of the conventional concepts from NC, there are some features makes me want it to run on all the OSes I am using; for example:
1. Mouting cloud storage: this is a must-use functions I found myself cannot live without after using it. Managing files locally from multiple cloud storages by keyboard without clumsy web-based UI is really a walk in the park.
2. Good CJK characters support: there are many apps do not properly handle unicode and have trouble handling filename contains CJK. I have handled a huge number of such files but haven't run into any problem.
3. Just found a super cool feature: Commander One is able to mount multiple directories from the same NAS, which OS X allows only one direcory to be mounted from a IP address. This make managing NAS much easier than native Finder, and so far haven't seen something similar from any other file managers!
