Dragster is an incredibly useful application that takes the drag out of file transfers. Just drag and drop files or folders on Dragster's icon in the Dock, and away they go! Dragster can send files via eMail, upload them to remote servers, copy them to your iDisk, or copy/move files anywhere on your local drives.

Dragster integrates unobtrusively into your Dock, making it instantly available when you need it, and completely out of your way when you don't. Best of all, Dragster lets you set up as many customizable "Shortcuts" as you like, taking the drudgery out repetitive file transfers to the same person or more...

Developer reports that Dragster has been "end-of-lifed," and will not be developed further. A shame, after a long and shaky history, for users who stayed faithful. Now looking for an alternative FTP drag-drop menu bar app.

What a shame. SO-o-o many apps have switched from CM to Services. These folk have been woefully quiet about *exactly* what is preventing them.

Nice to be able to come back five months later and update my review. Ambrosia's development team has picked up Dragster and shifted it back into gear, with great improvements to the UI, the layout of preferences, and stability. While context menus are not supported under 10.6, the renewed initiative plus upgraded feature set warrant the five-star rating-that, plus responsiveness of tech support is phenomenal. Thanks, Ambrosia, for saving a unique, work-saving app that deserved the effort.

A product with potential, but it seems to have been abandoned by its developer, with no upgrades in nearly a year and a half. Despite a unique interace, Dragster is missing some obvious features, including a list of shortcuts accessible through its menu bar icon, the option to customize the roll-over menu in the dock icon (e.g., remove iDisk or change icons for default pre-set items (Remote Server, Local Folder, iDisk, Email)-and the program can choke during transfer of large file. The creation of shortcuts is counterintuitive and clumsy, with no simple "Add Shortcut" option in the shortcut list window, only Delete and Edit buttons-an odd and careless omission that hurts workflow. Apart from the lack of developer attention to details and seeming abandonment of this utility, the app has promise. Ambrosia ought to pick it up again and bring it up to speed, at which point it would deserve to be considered seriously-but not until.

This is one of those rare utilities that adds such time-savings, that one wishes Apple could offer the same in their OS.

Works OK for smaller files. Chokes on anything over 20MB on our systems. It gets 3/4 through an upload to our .Mac folder and then freezes with an "unknown error". Happens consistently and repeatably on 3 different systems, none of which have any other connection problems. Probably worth $10 at most IMO, even once they fix the connection problems. It's just a prettier face on your .Mac account or FTP account basically.

I've come to expect high quality applications from Ambrosia Software with applications like SnapzPro X and WireTap Pro to their credit but this is simply garbage. Save your money. Okay, maybe I can live with an application that falls short of innovation but it hangs, crashes, and introduces the spinning beach ball from hell. Using a Dual 2.5 GHz PowerPC G5 with 4 GB SDRAM. Stick with Transmit or Fetch.

This would be soooo much more useful if you could also download, especially using SCP. Its ironic that OSX doesn't have a really good SCP GUI agent

Very difficult to send a file in a normal LAN via Bonjour. I think there should had been some clear documentation of this (Bonjour transfers, that is) in the built-in Help documentation, just for this feature alone, since I believe that many (with me) are looking for an easy way of tossing files around in their local network.

Maybe it's me being dumb, or maybe it didn't work. For all I know, I spent 20 minutes without managing to send a simple widget.wdgt file over Bonjour. I ended up getting various error messages and eventually gave it all up. If it's me, missing something that is supposed to be 'obvious' (then I apologize for my somewhat sceptical review), or if it's the app that is actually falling short in terms of Bonjour transfers; I'm still left with the task undone.

I was hoping for this application to be *the* file transfering hub that I was looking for. I'm returning to the free and quite capable alternative, Übertragen (widget application).

Try DropCopy, it's really simple and free for small networks.
