The ability to mount SFTP shares as drives is fantastic and well worth the $34 asking price.

Transmit is a paid FTP client for macOS that supports wide range of Protocols. Transmit supports standard FTP/SFTP as well as WebDAV. Transmit also supports other providers like Box, Google Drive, Dropbox and OneDrive. However expanding on the FTP formula you can also connect to object storage buckets like Amazon S3, Rackspace CloudFiles, Microsoft Azure and Backblaze B2.

This wide range of supported options is a great way to keep all of your Cloud Storage solutions in a single ecosystem. On top Transmit also supports Panic Sync and allows you to export your connection setting to something Transmit refers to as "Droplets".

Overall Transmit is worth the $45 USD. I would suggest to buy Transmit from Panic Inc directly, as I'm personally not a major fan of the App Store version.

Since purchasing, Transmit is my primary go to tool to interact with my VPS via SSH transfer as well as to interact with my S3 objects and B2. Previously I have been using Cyberduck, however Cyberduck has some problems with few WebDAV services that I use, as such I moved to Transmit full time and never looked back.

Panic has panicked Coda was much more stable than Nova. Now, the latest Transmit updates are also destroying the stability of the program. Crashes, inability to correctly manage links, creation and movement of folders with inconsistent and random behavior... The only positive thing is the management and synchronization of favorites, although the impossibility of resizing the favorites column is insane.

A good application but ridiculous upgrade policies. If you've bought v4 before you are expected to pay full price to upgrade to v5. This is almost as bad as the subscription merchants (which is the game Panic plays on the Mac App Store). The developers have aged at Panic and gotten fat and lazy and expect to be overpaid for their software. Looking for a new FTP client and suggest you do the same.

Transmit 4 support mounting remote server directories as local disks, just like macfusion, an excellent alternative!
