Transmit is an FTP client for Mac OS X and Mac OS Classic. 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, 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 also made for Mac OS Classic, but it has been discontinued and made freeware.
