Simple, fast, drag & drop file transfer tool.

Overview

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 server.

There's also a contextual menu component to Dragster, so you can right-click or control-click o file in any program, and instantly send that file to one of the shortcuts you've set up. It doesn't get any more convenient than that! And of course, Dragster fully supports Bonjour, making file transfers on your local network ridiculously easy.

Dragster isn't simply an FTP client, it supports FTP, SFTP, SCP, SMB (Windows File Sharing), as well as AFP (AppleShare) for file transfers. Best of all, you don't even have to know what protocol to use: simply select "Best Available" and Dragster will figure it out for you! There's also no need to mount servers before uploading files, Dragster takes care of this for you!

Despite Dragster's simple and elegant interface, it has an extremely advanced file transfer engine under the hood that optimizes upload speed, especially for repetitive file transfers to the same location. Dragster also features a full-blown file browser for remote servers, allowing you to navigate through file listings using the same intuitive interface regardless of what protocol you're using.

Already using a program like Transmit, Fetch, or Interarchy for uploading files? No problem, Dragster is meant to complement programs like these, not replace them. Dragster offers you speed and convenience for quick file transfers that is unmatched. Download it today and give it a whirl!

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.

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).

Will dragster put a file on idisk/ftp and create a new email message containing the link to the file on the server? Similar to how Filechute does it.

Thanks for the response. Are there any options to quickly get the URL of a uploaded file? Like an option to copy the url of the uploaded file directly to the clipboard, or some other way to quickly grab the URL so I can email it to someone, or give to someone I'm on ichat with. Let me know. I put it on my watchlist so I can track its progress. I'm definitly interested. :-)

Actually, there is documentation in Dragster. Choose "Dragster Help" from the HELP menu in Dragster... and you should be good to go!

No documentation (I know they are intentionally doing this to brag about its simplicity), but I have yet to figure out how to add my own shortcuts, dragging has not worked.
