Christmas Giveaway Day 4: Forklift

Today we’re giving away fifteen copies of Forklift, a popular FTP client for the Mac. Forklift is a versatile application that integrates effectively with OS X. It follows the familiar style of a traditional FTP application – with local and remote folders displayed side by side. The latest versions have brought a range of new features including file compression, folder synchronization, and folder merging.

Read on for more information about the app, and to find out how to enter.

Winners Announced

Congratulations to our Forklift winners!

Hope you enjoy the license!

About Forklift

Forklift is a great FTP application for the Mac, allowing you to easily transfer files to and from remote servers. The default Forklift interface feels familiar for those who have used a file transfer tool before. You are displayed with two folder lists; one for local files, and one for remote. It packs a huge range of functionality, and integrates well with many of the features of OS X.



Our Review of Forklift

If you’d like to find out more about Forklift, I’d strongly recommend reading our review of the application. Here’s the summary of our thoughts:

There isn’t a great deal I’d change about Forklift. The speed is impressive, as is the range of features included with the app. If you’re looking for a dedicated FTP application, it’s certainly worth trying out. I really hope that the app can remain simple in future versions, and not suffer from having features added for the sake of it.
