The gold standard of macOS file transfer apps just drove into the future. Transmit 5 is here. Upload, download, and manage files on tons of servers with an easy, familiar, and powerful UI. Transmit 5 has…


Transmit now connects to 11 new cloud services, like Backblaze B2, Box, Google Drive, DreamObjects, Dropbox, Microsoft Azure, and Rackspace Cloud Files.

And yes, Transmit still handles the classics — FTP, SFTP, WebDAV, and S3 — better than any. We make complex services drag-and-drop simple.


Transmit 5 now includes Panic Sync, our secure and fast way to sync your sites. And our robust File Sync feature adds support for local-to-local and remote-to-remote sync, while also giving you more fine-grained control.


We disassembled Transmit’s engine and rebuilt it, again, to significantly boost speed. T5 is better at multithreading and smarter about complex folders. Plus it’s got a new activity view to better focus on what Transmit is doing right now. It’s very fast.


- Get Info Sidebar. Inspect items as you browse, right in the browser.
- Batch Rename. Powerful, flexible, and built-in for local or remote.
- Places Bar. Jump to your favorite folders with a single click.
- Keys. Manage and generate secure keys right in Transmit.
- Tags
- Local-local sync
- 2-Factor Login
- Open in Terminal
- Brand New UI
- Extra Large Amazon S3 File Support
- And So Much More

Very useful, but confusing interface and poor help/instructions

I like this app very much but it took fussing around with clicking little pictues in the interface to figure out how to switch between files being accessed over internet connections and local files accessible to the computer. It wouldn't take much to make this more intuitive, and it also wouldn't take much to provide a user guide or at least a quick start document or quick start video.

I will continue using this. I was using ForkLift before, but this app lets me access DropBox easily and that's what makes this a killer app in my case.

OMG I wish there was an iPad version please!

Even writing a review throught the app reveals the level fo thought and care that went into making it - you aren't disrupted by being redirected to the app store or safari but rather they open a little window so that you are not really distracted or inconvenienced from what you're doing. I know this really isn't about core function of the app but I think it reveals a lot about the user experience you'll get. I can find no faults. I just wish there was an iPad/iOS version.

Long time Fan!

I've been using Transmit for years. SInce version 1 or 2. It was (and is) better than any FTP (or internet file transfer in general) software I used during my Windows days, and is the best FTP software I've ever used on Mac (And I've tried and used several). Transmit is reliable, powerful, and performant. I honestly can't see ever being without it, especially nowadays in the cloud era where so much data is passed from the cloud to the computer, rather than from one drive to another. Transmit is essential
