Transmit is an FTP client 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.

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,[1] 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 16 February 2005, Transmit 3 was released. The app was previewed to attendees of Macworld Expo the month prior in January 2005.

On 27 April 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. [1]

On 10 June 2016, Panic began accepting applicants to beta test Transmit 5.[2] Transmit 5 was released later that year, on the 18th of July.[3]


Transmit is the recipient of a number of awards, including:
