Transmit is an FTP client for Mac OS X and Mac OS Classic (which is unsupported). Developed by Panic, Transmit is shareware - after a 15 day trial period, some features of the product are disabled until it has been purchased.

The current version, Transmit 3, includes a number of new features, like uploading using a Dashboard widget or the dock, support for .Mac and iDisk/WebDAV, Spotlight and Automator plugins and more.

Transmit was also made for Mac OS Classic, but it has been discontinued and made freeware.



Transmit has a number of unique features, many of which take advantage of new technologies Apple has introduced in OS X 10.4. Some of them include:

  • Smart folder support
  • Spotlight integration
  • Automator actions
  • Dashboard widget
  • .Mac Sync
  • Droplets
  • Amazon S3 Support


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."[1]
  • MacWorld Expo Best of Show (among 12 winners), 2005[2]
  • MacMinute Showtime Award, 2005
