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.

Finally an FTP application on the app store that is free

Apple has a problem with Mac OSX and that is that the app store is nearly useless, almost all programs charge money and all the great free applications require hunting around on the internet where you risk being exposed to viruses and other nasties. Viper FTP looks great and compact, runs excellent as well and looks nice on 4k and 5k screens alike. Very glad to have found this on the app store and use it as my defacto FTP client. As my FTP use increases I will certianly consider upgrading to the paid version
