Current Version: 3.1.6 (November 1, 2002) / 4.6.3 (January 25, 2010)

Vicomsoft produces the Vicomsoft FTP Client software (previously available in a shareware version) for Mac OS and Mac OS X. Vicomsoft touts speed as this FTP client's primary benefit, although I can't personally vouch for that, as I haven't tested it myself.

Pricing starts at $30 ("Classic" version) and $35 (Mac OS X version) for a single user license. See the online ordering page for more information.

Version 4.6.3 - the latest version for Mac OS X - adds/changes the following:

  • Added option to encode UTF8 in Normalization Form C
  • New Connection window did not appear on some systems
  • Fixed some issues with icons and type/creator on Snow Leopard
  • Added ability to control the timeout value for connections
  • Fixed inability to create Droplets from a different user account
  • Start Demo button no longer brings up the Purchase window

Also, if you have an older Mac, be sure to check out the "Classic" applications page for more options.

Finally, take a look at ALEMIA if you think you know that name of an application, but aren't quite sure.

These are applications that are newer and of potential interest, but which I haven't yet selected for permanent inclusion. Have a look, and let me know if you think they deserve to be part of the permanent collection!
