|Type||File transfer tool|
Transmit is a file transfer client program for macOS. Developed by Panic, Transmit is shareware. After a seven-day trial period, the product can only be used for seven-minute sessions until it has been purchased. Originally built as an FTP client, it now supports a number of protocols ranging from the more traditional ones like SFTP and WebDAV to cloud services like Google Drive and Dropbox.
Transmit 4 includes a number of features, many of which take advantage of technologies Apple has introduced in OS X 10.4, such as uploading using a Dashboard widget or the dock, support for .Mac and iDisk/WebDAV, FTP/WebDAV/S3 servers as disks in Finder (since v4.0), Spotlight, Droplets, Amazon S3 support and Automator plugins.
The app was called "Transit" at introduction, but had to be changed due to a conflict with an existing product. Transmit was originally developed for Classic Mac OS, but that version has been discontinued and made freeware.
On February 16, 2005, Transmit 3 was released. The app was previewed to attendees of Macworld Expo the month prior in January 2005.
On April 27, 2010, Transmit 4 was released. More than five years after the release of version 3.0. The app was almost completely rewritten, had a brand new interface, over 45 new features, and was up to 25 times faster.
Transmit is the recipient of a number of awards, including:
- Apple Design Award, 2005 for "best Mac OS X Tiger technology adoption, for its use of features like Automator, Mac sync, Spotlight, Dashboard and more."
