There are numerous FTP clients available for Mac and each of them claims to be the best because they have the most features and are the fastest.
CrossFTP is an average FTP client, but after trying a lot of them, not one I can't live with.
First thing is : it's Java based. While this makes sense for the developer who can offer a multi platform product, Java is about the slowest environment you can think of. And to install you need to determine if you're running Java 5, 6 or 7, download the correct version... only to find out that, after the numerous leaks in Java's security, Apple disabled it, so you probably will have to install Java. Thus, CrossFTP is NOT WORKING out of the box in some (most ?) cases.
Second thing is : it's working nice with Dual-Pane interface. But it lacks one feature that other FTP clients offer, even sometimes for free. That is the ability to transfer files from remote site to remote site. Of course, you can always mount a remote FTP server as a disk in MacOs. But doing this will end up with several "invisbible" files dropped in every opened window... Not really nice. Transmit can do "remote to remote", as can Forklift.

So all in all, it works, transfers are rather fast but being Java based it not as responsive as it could be if developed natively for MacOS. I think I'll stick to forklift, Filezilla and Cyberduck.

Thanks for your feedback.
1. In future we will provide a JRE bundled version so that you can run it out of the box.
2. CrossFTP actually supports site to site (FXP) transfer. If you met any problems on this, feel free to contact us. Thanks!

I have been using FileZilla since forever but it seems to crash when transferring a large amount of files, so I looked at cyberrduck which I don't get on with and then tried this.

And this works great - similar to FileZilla but without the crashes.

UI needs work looks like OS9 meets Windows XP - not never the less it solves a problem for me so still giving 5 stars

Nice FTP client. I can use it to upload large files (several G) to Amazon S3 properly.

If you have UI suggestions to improve the efficiency further, Email us and we will try to improve. Our design principle was to improve the working efficiency, e.g., dual panel and multi-tab UI can manage multiple FTP locations with ease; the queue editor controls your transfers; log window helps to solve issues, etc. Thanks!

Am I the only one not liking the UI? Probably because it is cross-platform but for me it doesn't work.
CyberDuck is way better.

This appears to be a cross platform app with the interface coded in Java. That makes a lot of sense for the company who make it in terms of developing a user base and supporting multiple platforms without having to recode the GUI every time.

This is very easy to use! Thanks.

thats a stupid thing to say. I havn't tested this app yet but disregarding it based on its GUI is lame and ignorant


Ugh. Go back to the Windows environment you surely were spawned in. Don't need people who comment like this soiling our reputation.
