Very nice

I got this to help transfer files from my Mac to a Virutal machine. Much easier then using the terminal. Lots of configuration and so far I don't see a need to upgrade any of the features. Only gripe is some of the icons are too similar so at first it was hard to distinguesh between the functions. It helps though that there are tool tips.

Crazy Easy!

Very intuitive to use. Did not even have to use the Help section. Some limitations, but if you need more features. I would not hesitate to buy their premium version. THANK YOU! A big improvement over the free FileZilla.

False Start

It didn’t work first time out. I needed an FTP app right away so I D/L another one. It didn’t work either and I figured the problem was on my end so I went back to this app and it functioned flawlessly. Transferred 80+MB in minutes. I’ll probably purchase the upgrade just to see how much better it is over the lite version. I used to use Fetch all the time but they now want twice as much as the full version of Viper FTP. The lite version works fine for a small user but it’s good to support developers that offer a free or trial version. I’m happy.
