Bought C1 pretty soon after I went from windows and linux to osX and felt like finder was even worse than explorer under windows. Have another opinion today ;) finder is pretty neat. Spoiled by Norton Commander and then Total Commander (TC) under windows I was reliefed when I discovered C1. Not as great as TC but almost. Upgraded for free to v2 recently but have so far not seen anything new I missed with previous version. Still missing the feature to make a comment on a file like in finder thats even better than ctrl-z in TC :)! Btw, finder is great when you learn it!

Hi, let me assure you that Commander One app does not have any malware. Some antivirus programs now have false positive when Commander One is checked by it due to hash sum. We have already addressed this issue with false alerts to antivirus products providers.

FYI: the answer we received from the Avast specialist: "I checked this problem and the detection "MacOS:Bundlore-CU [PUP]" was disabled completely on Aug/21/2019. The VirusTotal report was actually quite outdated and when I re-analyzed the file, it is not detected by Avast anymore: https://www.virustotal.com/gui/file/e46f8b129d55fda98f762ab087620daa9e43559a3afd8f187791c445d66d4da0/detection".

Depending on your macOS version you may need the Android file driver, look here
https://www.android.com/filetransfer/

And look at this Samsung page:
https://www.samsung.com/us/switch-me/switch-to-the-galaxy-s-5/app/partial/transfer-content/transfer-from-other.html

with this driver, I can view Android phones, tablets, etc, directly in regular Finder

Can you explain what the benefits to upgrading to v2 are? According to their update notes, its just a small bug fix and adds support for DropBox business accounts. Surely, there is more to it but I'm afraid to pull the trigger on it in case they've switched to a subscription payment model, similar to what a number of other apps have done in which I purchased a "one-time premium upgrade" for :/

Thanks!

I bought it with a discount and upgraded to lifetime licence, so it is free for me to get this update. However, I do notice a faster response of the app when it is starting with cloud services such as google drive, etc. Themes are matched to MacOS Mojave but not file panel background. I do like locked tabs function. Not sure it is worth the upgrade if you pay the full price. But there is no good FM app on the market anyway. I was happy about DiskOrder. But that app is dying slowly.

Commander One is a great file manager with many nice features. I'm using it daily and it greatly increases my productivity. It would be awesome if you could add the following features/fixes in the 2.0 version: 1. When copying some files to an archive and repacking it by going out of it (to the containing folder), the compression method set in the preferences does not seem to be taken into account. The resulting archive has the same size irrespective of the compression method chosen. 2. Edit and save files directly over SFTP 3. Edit and save files directly in an archive 4. Ability to move files in the same pane with Cmd+C & Cmd+Opt+V (like Finder). This is very useful when wanting to move some files one folder up/down. 5. In the Search dialog (Opt+F7), the checkbox Search in selections can be checked only when at least 2 folders are selected. When only one folder is selected, the search is performed from root folder, which is annoying. 6. The search results list is missing horizontal scrolling and long file paths are impossible to see 7. Ability to configure the Size column to show just B instead of bytes 8. Ability to cancel a file selection by just clicking on a non-selected file (instead of going to the enclosing folder) 9. The terminal feature is cool, but seems to use only half of the screen (one panel) to display the shell prompt and the typed command and in case they don't fit it will override the beginning of the line, making it impossible to read. Thank you and looking forward to the next update. Is there any estimate for the release date of v2.0?

@trickyboy - don't drink the kool-aid. here it is Dec 2018, the last update to Commander One was September 22, 2017 ....yes 2017. That was BEFORE the release of High Sierra. Who are they kidding. An ENTIRE cycle of macOS has come and GONE in the time since this app was last updated.

I bought this so that I could access my Android phone's files - works great. Note that I had to uninstall the Google's Android File Transfer app first as they compete for the same resource.

It would be nice if you could drag a URL shortcut form the browser URL bar into C1, but that is a minor thing. Overall, pretty pleased with this.

I was crazy about this AT FIRST but soon discovered that you cannot ftp any file that contains accented characters in the filename! It renames the file on the server as it incorrectly codes these characters.
