Interarchy for Mac

21 September 2017

Advanced file transfer app supporting iFTP, FTP, SFTP, Webdav, S3 & more.

What is Interarchy for Mac

Interarchy is an advanced file transfer app that supports FTP, SFTP, Webdav, S3 and the new, very fast iFTP. It also supports plug-in architecture for compressing files, running scripts and restarting servers

It ties in well with both Amazon and Rackspace's cloud file hosting services, allowing you to transfer and manage data in the cloud. It also boasts as being the fastest file transfer client on the Mac, transferring over 80MB/sec on a gigabit network

The Net Disks feature allows you to mount remote servers on your Mac's Desktop as if it were a local disk. This makes it easy to interact and work with remote files as if they were local

What's new in Interarchy

Version 10.0.7:

Note: Version 10 is a paid upgrade from version 9. Interarchy 9 customers can purchase a discounted upgrade to Interarchy 10.

  • Interarchy 10.0.7 is a maintenance release. In includes a workaround for a bug in macOS 10.13 that prevents clicks in the sidebar and toolbar from registering.

Got an email from the developer, since Interarchy changed to Nolobe some years ago, Interarchy is dead. In this email he now tries to sell T-shirts ..
Some 10 years ago Interarchy was great, time to move on ..

Hi, Maybe I am not the customer targeted by this app. But I must really say that I do not understand it's purpose. It can be used as a FTP client and it claims to be fast. Well, that may be, but really : with no dual-pane presentation, it makes it difficult to transfer files. But why not if it is fast as advertised... But even that it is not. FTP transfer from my computer to the remote server are just the slowest I have compared to EVERY other FTP client I use... but of course maybe that's not the real purpose of Anarchy ? And there's one nice feature that allows you to transfer files from a remote server to another remote server. But what you ought to know is that this will first transfer the files to your hard drive (what happens if there not enough disk space ?)... and yes, that IS fast. But then it uploads form the hard drive to the remote server. And there we go again : slowest I tried. So, not for me...

Honestly, I find it quite an insult to owners of this software that Nolobe chose to release this, and to also do so with no explanation or release notes. From what I can see so far, it appears to be the very same app posted 2 years ago, except that it has a 'retina aware' setting enabled in its plist and is signed with a Developer ID. It's not good enough, Nolobe. This release deserves no more than 0.5 stars, sorry.

The app is quite good, but it is no longer supported or developed. So if you pay for this you get last years products for this years price. Find a FTP-client that is actively maintained.

If you want speed, this is the FTP client for you. In my admittedly unscientific tests. Interarchy downloaded a 1.2 GB file in twenty minutes; Transmit took 1 h 24 m to download the same file. Later it did a 1.9 GB file in 31 minutes, Transmit is still working on it.

Used Transmit for a few months, which is a fine ftp client. Went back to Interarchy recently because it's quicker & more efficient for mirroring tasks. There's a script that can be installed as part of Services that will tell Interarchy to ignore or not ignore files/folders during mirroring operations. I modified the script so that the file/folder color is change to visually let me know what's being ignored. Brilliant.

I originally got in on the deal to purchase Interarchy for $14.95. My decision to purchase, despite reading all the comments here, boiled down to two things, Interarchy's ability to connect to Rackspace and to try iFTP. While iFTP IS extremely fast (for servers that support it), I am unable to connect to Rackspace at all. I emailed support support (Matthew) on January 19th and I got a response back that same day asking for a log of the connection. I sent the log on January 20th and haven't heard back from them...AT ALL. I've emailed twice, once on 2/1 and again on 2/19 simply asking for a status update. No...response...at...all. While some functionality of Interarchy does work, I'm ratiing it what I am based on the OVERALL use, which sadly includes my customer "support" experience.

Just another FTP? Yeah, maybe... but interarchy is a sure thing. I would never have the idea to buy it for my very basic FTP needs... But I got it in a bundle (best invention since the wheel and the Mac). The software is very rich. There are many features I don't (and won't) need. However, the small percentage I use is absolutely flawless. FTP is easy to use, user friendly and efficient. I used CyberDuck and sometimes, I couldn't upload my website (couldn't know why, but no issue with Interarchy). Access to webdisks is a gem (maybe it's a basic feature but I couldn't find it in CyberDuck). Even with basic needs, you can really "feel" that Interarchy has much potential under the hood... so if you've got specific file transfer needs, maybe you should give it a try.

Their last blog entry is from Wednesday, 18th August 2010 http://nolobe.com/blog/ If they are not going to even respond to support requests to paying customers this app deserves a dump rating.

Early in February I asked Matthew Drayton, the developer of Interarchy, what his timetable was for fixing the bugs which remained in the application. I then had the opportunity to give him what I believed to be a complete list of those that I found, which include several more than I noted in my review on MacUpdate.com on November 20, 2010; I give you those here: I consider an bug to be serious if it affects my use of an application; however, here are some bugs that cause crashes: - Cover Flow crashes, every time. (1) - Copy Public URL crashes, every time. (2) Bugs that require I change how I use Interarchy: - Double-clicking a folder attempts to download the folder, instead of opening it. (1) - File/folder creation occurs in unexpected directories. (4) - Copying a file by dragging from the window to a background tab copies the file to the wrong directory. (4) - Right-clicking on a selection of multiple files/folders deselects all but one. (4) - Cannot rename in place in column view. Bugs or behaviors that slow down my use of Interarchy: - Duplicating a file leaves the original selected, rather than the copy. (3) - Using HITextField for the address control causes text to shift when moused into. - Renaming a file selects the whole name, including the extension. (3) - Double-clicking a file to rename doesn't do an appropriate word-select. (3) - Quick Look (and preview) doesn't work on remote servers. (1) - In column view, selecting a directory followed by "Select All" results in all items in that directory's column to be selected. This is different than the Finder's behavior, where all items *in* the selected directory would become selected. (3) Bugs that otherwise affect my use of Interarchy: - Save/Save As don't do what (this) user expects. - Preferences for selecting columns to view is missing. (1) - State not saved periodically. (1) Although Matthew's first comment was "I don't comment on future releases," he did indicate that these would be fixed in the next release. (2) This has been fixed, probably by a reinstall of the operating system. (3) It's particularly frustrating to me that Matthew insists that these behaviors reflect the Finder's behavior, when that is clearly not the case. (4) Also different than the Finder, although Matthew hasn't commented. I sent Matthew a screencast (at his request) to demonstrate the issues marked above by (3); however, he has not responded to me in nearly a month -- even when I sent two additional messages. Playing the Devil's advocate, I understand some of the delay is due to the Mac App Store. Matthew, after hearing in November (?) about the MAS, chose to delay the release of any update so that it could be released simultaneously in the MAS and on his website. The MAS approval process has increased that delay. Very frustrating for him, I'm sure. But (and switching back to the other side), it's even more frustrating for his customers who have paid for a working product -- or, at least, a certain level of usability -- and have not been communicated with. I stand by my earlier review. There are too many bugs for me to recommend anyone buy this product, even at the tempting price of $20 (see my comments elsewhere on the price).

I'm currently in the midst of major revisions to the company website (168 files/folders in the remote directory, not counting subfolders/image files), and of the FTP clients I've accumulated over the years (Transmit, Forklift, Fetch, Yummy FTP, and Interarchy), Interarchy is the tool of choice for mirror operations. Why? While Transmit has great looks and features, it's *way* too slow in transfers/mirrors. Forklift is wicked fast, but the "Syclet" doesn't reliably pick up changes in local files as of the current version, v2.0.5. Mirrors are fast and reliable using Forklift itself, but I haven't found a way to get 1-click mirroring. Fetch is reliable, but does not offer a way to exclude files from mirror operations. Yummy FTP provides fast, accurate & flexible mirrors, but doesn't provide 1-click mirrors, although mirrors can be scheduled to execute automatically. I suppose if I wanted to mirror on a schedule, Yummy FTP would be just the ticket. The reason I use Interarchy is because I can start a mirror with 1 click in the menu bar and I'm done - no dialog boxes to click through. Interarchy never misses a revised/new file, so, for me, it's is the fastest, most reliable way I've found to mirror local and remote files. Gripes: 1. No help (kind of a biggie), 2. Crashes more than it should in Cover Flow view, 3. Mirrors no longer can be scheduled as in v.9, "trial run" mirrors are not available as in v9, and 5. Nolobe, the developer, has not been responsive to my feedback and questions (sure would like to hear from that guy one of these days). Bottom line: for web site maintenance these days, Interarchy's the best tool I have.

This is not a review but rather an observation. The help website server has not been functioning since I bought Interarchy. What gives? Can you PLEASE fix this issue?

Having used it since it was called Anarchie I really wanted to like version 10, but I don't. I skipped a few versions -which were pretty bad- and finally upgraded by version 8 or 9. Version 10 is supposed to be incredibly fast, but Fork Lift 1.7.8 was much faster. Perhaps twice as fast when downloading a 40 MB folder from my website (around 1 minute vs. approximately 2 minutes). Uploads were also slower in Interarchy. Compared to Anarchie, Interarchy has less features. Some things are easy to do, but there's no manual and the Help on their website does not work at all. Links are there, but they're not working. It crashes when trying to use QuickLook. I really want to give this 5 stars, but in its current state it's a big disappointment. It's still a good value thanks to the bundled price, otherwise I would not have bought it. I do hope it improves. This is not what a version 10 application should be like.

Interarchy 10 is absurdly fast with it's proprietary iFTP protocol connections, and a top contender with its other protocols. It boasts a simple, intuitive UI (not as overwrought as the competitions'), great sychronization/backup support, and the unique implementation of "Net Disks." (Not quite servers-on-the-desktop, but not quite synchronization folders) Then it has some entirely unique power user features like server-side plugins (so you can, say, reboot Apache from your iFTP connection) and file converters, which let you dynamically compress/encode/encrypt files when they transfer. It has suffered some reliability issues, however, and the documentation (which is being improved) is sometimestoo limited. None of these issues seem to affect basic usage, and file transfers are totally solid. But it would get a full 5 stars if these rough edges were sanded off.

*** BEWARE ***   Version 10.x should be considered beta-quality software -- use at your own risk! Version 10 was released months after it was promised, without (as far as I -- a long-time Interarchy user -- can tell) testing by anyone other than the developer. It was immediately found to be chock full of bugs and, although two updates quickly followed, most of those bugs exist at this time. It has been months since the last update and no timeframe has been issued for the next one. Bugs include: crashes related to Cover Flow; crashes related to public URL copying; missing preferences for displaying columns; failure to list directories in list view and in certain instances in column view; Quick Look doesn't work for remote files; state (windows, tabs, history, etc.) not saved periodically; right-clicking on a selection of multiple files/folders deselects all but one; new file/folder creation occurs in unexpected directories -- I'd list more, but these are all that I can remember off the top of my head. The developer has closed the Google Group and the Tender support forums, where these and more of the bugs I'd experienced were reported, so the complete  list of reported bugs is unavailable. My recommendation is to steer clear of this app until .1 or even a .5 release.

As of 11/18/10 14:30 EST, the Nolobe support page no longer shows user items/feedback, and the Interarchy help link leads to an empty page. This could mean that improvements are forthcoming shortly; or it could also mean that the developer is calling it quits. Also, I have encountered enough issues with the latest release (v.10.0.2) since posting last that I recommend sticking with v.9.0.1 for serious work. Time will tell, but I'm not optimistic.

A serious disappointment from a trusted developer. A nice as this update is, I recommend that you do not upgrade from v9 unless you have a compelling reason to do so. This version does not contain a user manual or any inline help. Help merely links to a way-too-limited FAQ and discussion board that does not include *any information* about key features such as Net Disks.

I have been a user of this software since version 1 (Anarchie) and I used to be happy with it. But now it has become a real disaster, at least as far as Synchronizing is concerned. I have a site created in 1995 (now hosted on MobileMe) and I have ALWAYS updated-synchronized it in ftp with this software, but now it simply "forgets" this or that page, which is not synchronized and remains what it was, with disastrous consequences. Too bad. And the manual has disappeared, too... Will I have to conlude that I have wasted the money for this latest upgrade? And will I have to change software?

Interarchy v.10 introduces advanced developer-oriented features such as plug-ins and iFTP, but the initial release had issues. With v.10.0.2, however, Nolobe has addressed most of them and Interarchy v.10.0.2 is ready for prime time. A bit of caution: the "Dry Run" mirror option is not available in this release. The developer is responsive to requests and comments. I have licenses for the latest versions of Fetch and Transmit, but Interarchy 10 is my default FTP client because of its combination of features, speed, and dependability. Still the best.

I have to admit, having been an Interarchy user since very early Anarchy days, I was a bit worried when Matthew took over the reigns. He seemed responsive with version 9, although there was a loss of several functionality items that I wasn't happy about. Previously, I'd been on beta teams for Interarchy and enjoyed participating in the progress of this great app. However, I asked repeatedly about this versions beta and got nothing. Then all of the sudden, out of the blue, comes version 10, which appears to have lost a bit more original functionality and hasn't really added much of value to me. The first release of v10 was buggy too, which might have been caught if you'd had more beta testers (hint hint). Sadly, I can't help but feel that there just isn't much drive for this software developer and this project any more. I feel like the beta was only a sign that this version was more about increasing the version number and offering a way for the developer to charge for upgrades again - essentially a cash grab from his faithful supporters. I have v10 installed and have tried using it in order to make me want to pay for the upgrade, but I'm sorry, I can't. Version 9 still works okay and I think I'm going to sit this version out and maybe even start trying other solutions again (god, I thought I'd never say that.) I want software that has eager developers who are interested in working with their customers and end-users and are constantly trying to push their product forward. Sadly, I just don't get that vibe anymore with Interarchy or Nolobe Software.

I bought version 8 and then upgraded to version 9. It's quite short-sighted from developers to put a price on this upgrade after only one update to the previous version, which was ages ago. There was a time when I was a satisfied customer... that time is no more.

I'll bet the culprit is a misbehaving contextual menu plugin. There are a few known offenders the most recent of which is the ExpanDrive contextual menu plugin. Contextual menu plugins can be found in here: ~/Library/Contextual Menu Items To disable a contextual menu plugin move it out of this folder. I recommend disabling your contextual menus one-by-one till you find the culprit. If *any* app crashes while right-clicking there is a very strong chance the culprit is a misbehaving contextual menu plugin. If you continue to have troubles please email us support@nolobe.com.

I've been a long time user of Interarchy (and prior to that Anarchie) and liked the older versions rather well. I have to recommend CyberDuck instead these days. Although Interarchy transfers are fast, the developer who acquired it really isn't maintaining this. The 9 update appeared to mostly a reason for the new developer to charge everyone something. The new UI is not the most intuitive, in my opinion. Cyberduck is perhaps not as polished and not as fast, but it is free and is maintained.

This FTP client is awesome. It supports FTP, SFTP, SSH, SCP, WebDAV, WebDAVS, AmazonS3, AmazonS3S, HTTP, HTTPS, and File/Local. The interface is excellent and easy to use. I disagree with the other comment made here -- I think Interarchy 9 is without question, the "prettiest" of all the FTP clients. Bookmarks are easily accessible and can be organized any way you'd like. The mirroring functionality is top notch, and I use it to easily mirror two file repositories of 40GB+ each without any issue. One of these repositories is standard FTP and the other is AmazonS3. The ability to schedule the mirrors makes for nice automation. I've also used the SSH FTP support to manage files on my iPhone (which shows up automatically in Interarcy thanks to Bonjour). The developers are some of the most responsive and receptive I've dealt with and I saw a number of my suggestions implemented during the course of helping them with the beta releases for this version. I've used (and purchased) many FTP applications over the years: Cyberduck, VicomFTP, Transmit, FileZilla, RBrowser, etc. etc. and they all fall short. Interarchy 9.0.1 has still got a few quirks but it is, in my opinion, vastly superior to the other available clients.

Version: 9.0.1
9.0.1, I am happy to report, fixes all the critical bugs in the 9.0 release. It's rock solid, now, just like it always used to be. This update also adds some minor, but very helpful, features. Interarchy remains the Big Dog of file transfer clients. While there are many more applications that handle the same tasks, some of which are, perhaps, prettier (Transmit), simpler and easier to learn (Fetch), or are free (Cyberduck), no program has the power and depth of Interarchy. Version 9 has greatly cleaned up and simplified the interface. The new sidebar, better tab management, and the path bar at the bottom of the window are great improvements and make it much easier to browse around a large directory tree. The ability to browse the Finder in a tab gives it the ability to have a dual-pane-like view, while still maintaining the simplicity of a single window most of the time. You can also copy & paste from the Finder to Interarchy, which is very handy, but unfortunately doesn't work in the other direction. (Although drag & drop does) You can also copy & paste within Interarchy, even to transfer files to other servers. The SSH connection type is truly awesome. Directory listings with lots of files pop up instantly. Mirror and backup syncs (one of Interarchy's major strengths) are far faster since it can crawl directories incredibly quickly to find differences. Whereas I'd avoid mirroring certain complex sites since it took so long to find changes and run the mirror, I now find it entirely painless. There's also some very nice additional spit and polish including some menu rejiggering to make it a bit more standard, some new preferences, interface clean-ups, etc. Then there's all the usual Interarchy goodness: File converters for automatic encoding/encryption/compression of files on upload; support for nearly every file server protocol; Net Disks and mirrors for easy synchronization between your Mac and a server; contextual menus and droplets for easy on-the-fly file transfers; and an excellent AppleScript dictionary. Interarchy is definitely not for everybody. I highly recommend testing it and its competition before buying it. But if you need some of these unique features, or if you want hassle free and automatic synchronization, mirroring and backup, there's nothing better.

I love Interarchy 8, but version 9's added features just don't seem to justify the upgrade price for me--particularly not given that the upgrade price for Interarchy is the same as the price to buy a full license of a comparable product like Panic's Transmit.

The new SSH-based transfer protocol is amazingly fast. It does some sort of magic compression, so pulling files down is speedy as all get out, and comparing directories for mirroring transfers is lickety split. Unfortunately, yes, it's got a lot of bugs that, strangely, weren't present in the recent beta releases. I'm holding off on a review until 9.1 comes out and fixes these bugs.

Interarchy looks like it could be pretty slick (and I love the UI) but the lack of a dual-pane file browser kills it for me. I'll have to give it another go, but once you go dual-pane, it's hard to go without that feature.

Wait for 9.1 Unfortunately, this version is not ready for prime time. It crashes constantly. (Their forum is full of complaints.) There is no help; you cannot add a folder to the bookmark bar w/o crashing; adding a local file bookmark crashes it; the net tools are gone.. the list goes on. This is very weird: Interarchy has always been a strong, reliable client... this release (9.0) isn't even ready for beta status, IMHO.

I think the "special price" of $29 for the update is a bit extravagant - after purchasing v8.5.2 last year (for $39), there has only been a few small bug fixes before the release of v9. Now if I want to update, there is only a $10 discount.

I have communicated a number of times with the Interarchy developers about this, and followed their advice, but the problem persists. If I had not been for this problem, I would give highest score for Interarchy as a super FTP program.

I'm really just commenting, but I wanted to be able to rate it as well. I've been using it for two weeks as a trial/demo and after using Speed Download for several years I'm switching to Interarchy. Interarchy does the things I wish SD would do and the last paid upgrades for SD have not really offered anything new of significance to me. I think SD is geared more to the general user, and its a decent program, but I've always thought it's name was a bit misleading based on real-world experience, again, an adequate product. However, when I used Interarchy 8.x for the first time a couple of weeks ago I was pretty certain I was going to change products, and after emailing the new owner/president of the new company asking for a crossgrade discount, and he said yes, I knew I was going to switch. I would like to hear from others who have used both SD and Interarchy as well. The number one reason to switch for me was the ability to mount ftp sites as disks. Interarchy still looks and feels more technical than SD does, to me, but after just a couple of days of using it I was catching on quickly to just exactly what I could accomplish with it. At this point I wish there was a little better integration with Safari (or whatever browser), but it looks like I can probably tweek Interarchy with scripts and get it to act the way I need it to. If you're doing more than just downloading Interarchy is clearly a better tool than SD. With regard to free FTP utilities - I like Interarchy because, like SD, it works with a wide variety of network and server protocols. I'm obviously not a power user but I do more than just download when connecting to remote servers and I'm coming to appreciate Interarchy more all of the time.

I used to love this program. Started using it when it was called Anarchie, IIRC. When the price jumped from $40 to $60 and the upgrade price increased as well, I switched to a different program. For me, this deal is the same as the upgrade price and it is not appealing. For new users, $30 is a VERY attractive price for this program. Definitely worth considering.

Hmmm, I'm very impressed with Interarchy as it is, but version 8.5 seems rather buggy to me. Got basically a non-functional Bookmarking window, with Auto Upload bookmarks that replicate like rabbits. Plus bookmarks that can't be renamed. Plus non-functional bookmarks in the main window. Plus various crashes related to all of the above. Must be a compatibilty issue somewhere, somehow. Hope this can be solved fast, as it seriously stands in the way of evaluating the otherwise impressive features.

Very nice. I own both Interarchy and Transmit so I've no need to defend one over the other. I was waiting for Peter to include WebDAV support in Interarchy and now it's here. The interface is nicer and more Mac like than that of Transmit with a slightly larger font which I prefer. It's also possible to make the windows smaller than you currently can with Transmit. It has the address bar like a web browser which Transmit lacks. This makes it easier to negotiate directories with the keyboard and copy paths. Transmit does have more options for editing server files with client based editors but I seldom do editing of anything other than text files.

I used a trial version Anarchie back in the early days when I could not afford to pay for it. I liked it so well that I wrote to Andrew N. Tomazos and the development team hoping to get a free license. (I wrote: My name is Jamie and I just downloaded Anarchie 3.7. I like it and would like to know if I could use it for a while without registering. I am presently without a job so money is not plentiful to say the least. If I become gainfully employed in the very near future I would hope to register Anarchie. In the mean while I will play around with it so that I can learn it's features." Reply: "Sure Jamie, please use this serial number: Name: Jamie Thompson Serial: XXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXX Regards, Andrew.") To my surprise they sent a registration number (license) to me and I have been using Interarchy ever sense. I have tried other ftp software apps but Stairways "Interarchy" is just as good if not better. I use Interarchy today. Interarchy is constantly evolving to meet my needs so if you are patient you don't have to worry about this program failing you. Interarchy continues to get better and smarter.

For the past few years, our company have used only two FTP programs - Interarchy and Transmit. When working with inexperienced individuals (like my Mom who is 80 years old) we liked the simplicity of Transmit, where there are just two windows options to deal with. On the left side "Your Stuff" (your computer's hard drive) and on the right side "Their stuff" (the web site you are online with). Although this was a great way to upload our business web site changes, Transmit would not allow us to do multiple uploads, at the same time, to different parts of our web site. So as of Interarchy 6 we stopped using Transmit altogether. The reason we use Interarchy exclusively now is because it will allow us to start uploading one area, then jump to another, then another, etc... We have a T3 modem, with exponential uploading. If the system where our account is housed is not busy, it will keep uploading exponentially until all our uploads are complete. Thus far, the upgrades for Interarchy have continued to be very good, until this latest one, version 7.3.1. They have outdone themselves this time! They have added a feature that makes doing FTP transfers, both simplified (even for my 80 year old mother) by adding the ability to change your view window to match that of the "column view" in OS X - brilliant! To be able to see your web site's hierarchy through a series of panels, rather than hundreds of open windows stacked on top of each other, really helps my employees understand where everything is and how to locate things quickly. Our site is over 6 Gig in size. There's a lot of stuff on there and one could get lost very quickly. After I downloaded 7.3.1 and opened it up, I was surprised that it was FREE - part of my original upgrade to version 7. Upon seeing these new features, I was willing to pay for this upgrade, so finding out it was FREE was icing on the cake. Some major work has gone into this program since it's old OS 9 version, yet their upgrades remain free in the current version. Keep in mind, when I get updates to software like Adobe and Microsoft, they are nearly ALWAYS fixes to problems that should have been caught in the "beta" testing stage, before releasing to the public. The updates to Interarchy are actual improvements to what I thought was already an outstanding FTP software. Oh sure, they do add some fixes along the way for very obscure things, like multiple languages problems, etc... but they always add some brilliant and much appreciated improvements too. Version 7.3.1 is their best effort today. Those of you on here boasting about other FTP programs would probably not appreciate the hard work these guys continually do to keep Interarchy "state of the art", so you guys should just keep using those programs. But for individuals that have actual needs.... and Interarchy addresses them.... it's worth every penny if you have not tried it yet. Joseph Watt Razormaid

Although we continue to monitor other FTP transfer software's on the market - Interarchy continues to be our #1 choice. The attention to detail and ease of use makes this worth it's weight in gold. Another plus is that multiple requests (both upload and download) are possible. Even-though a few other programs allow this option, eventually they either freeze or crash. This makes for a nightmarish circumstance, as we then do not know which files transfered, and which ones did not. None of these problems occur with Interarchy!

Back when the Internet was all shiny and new, I always used Anarchie for my FTP needs. Then, they introduced weird "features" like wands and raised the price and where all mean to their customers. Mean, I say! So I switched to Fetch. Fetch is neat, but the current version simply doesn't fit into Mac OS X's new interface, so I decided to move on. I tried several FTP apps. Since I need extensive synchronizing features, it came down to FTPeel and Interarchy. FTPeel is neat, and the magic uploading features is very cool, but other than that, it's a bit lightweight. There's no real mirroring and it doesn't offer too many featuers. Besides, the people who make FTPeel also make apps that could be used for spammers. I'm not really holding that against them. I'm sure these apps have valid uses, but still. I hate spam. What's more, the interarchy crew seems to have gotten its act together. They've made Interarchy 6.3 free for Mac OS 9 users, which is quite nice of them. They've made the update cheaper, it's not 19 bucks instead of 25. And you can update from any version. And the app has really improved. It's now a true Mac OS X citicen with lots of advanced features. It looks good, and right now, it's simply the most full featured FTP client available on the Mac. Everyone who droped Interarchy when they lost their ways and introduced themes and whatnot, check it out again. It's definitely a step back to the roots of the app, and it shows. The price is still not cheap, but this is a pro app with pro features. It's only expensive if your time is worth nothing, because it *will* save you time. I'm glad I'm back.

Where the long time required and very extended SSL FTP? You need an annoying Windows Imported CuteFTP (?) or Secure FTP (from Glub) with a very very slow and foreign java interface to use this very cool current technology. Why Interarchy is not so integrated in the X, allowing also Terminal access nor offer a FTP server? Iterarchy is a very mature tool for Macs but, IMHO, it need a very big relaunch and up-dating.

I agree. Once upon a time Interarchy was a fine FTP client, I used it as one of my workhorse apps. Then it got too complex and overladen with buggy "features" (the FTP Disk managed to louse up my site something fierce, I had to spend hours fixing everything manually) and the author developed what seems like a Napoleon complex in charging unreasonble amounts for upgrades, turned very snotty when loyal long-time users complained. So I switched to Transmit, which is a simple, elegant Cocoa app. that suits my needs just fine. And that was a one-time purchase, I've never been charged a dime for an upgrade.

Used to be a nice little FTP client, back when it was Anarchie. Has since succumbed to Swiss Army Knife syndrome--it has to do everything. If you're not afraid of the command line, lftp has all the file transfer capabilities of this and more. (When will a Mac FTP client support FXP?)

I bought Interarchy, but I'm not paying $25 for an upgrade to get bug fixes and features I don't want when I could buy Transmit for that price. In addition, the new "no demo" decision means I would never have bought it in the first place. There's a lot of stuff in Interarchy that's just too awkward to use. For instance, given a list of URLs, it ought to be easy to download those files in turn, one by one. Sure, Interarchy can do it, but you try working out how. Having said all that, it's still the most reliable and speedy download client.

I've used RBrowser, Transit/Tranmit, Fetch and a few others, Interarchy is the best. The interface is much more intelligent than traditional FTP apps which use the archaic "your files, their files" thinking. Integration with BBEdit is better than RBrowser. The FTP disk feature is sweet, though I only use it when I need to make a global find and or replace. Still has a couple quirks, but I have yet to email them and let them know.
