I think you guys should add compatability with the mac, there are very few ftp managers for the mac so it will surely get used by those of use who need a good ftp manager and use mac.

No. We have insufficient resources.

hi,
thanks for Your answer and... ohhh, I'm disappointed. I was plan to buy 15 licences for my graphics studio this amazing ftp client.
So, i'm using mac based ftp client (ex. CaptainFTP) but these are for fools.
I'll be in touch. :-)

best regards,
Jotka

Hello,

I visited my friend's house once and he used it. When I saw what it did, it was really cool and wanted to use it for my computer. The problem is I have a mac, so it won't work.

For users who use Mac (and linux too), are you able to make one for those other opperating systems other than Windows?

I would really appreciate it.

Ok. In that case, are you guys ab to make a mac verion of it? I know there are a lot of mac users who want to use smart ftp just as much as the windows users who are using them now.

See here http://www.smartftp....?showtopic=7264 and here http://www.smartftp....showtopic=11669. Nothing has changed since the last statement, thus no Mac version is planned.

In oen of them, an admin said we don't have enough resources. Do you mean like being able to make a mac version?

In the first place, he meant "not enough man-power" to go after feature requests with such a low priority.

basically like such a low request to do such a thing?

Well honestly, you should consider my request a request of a thousand. Many people that I know and don't know were saying that a lot of ftp programs for free for mac is bland and having smartftp could be very helpful. Many do not request because they just see it and leave, only a few, such as myself, or those other 2 dudes wanted to join this site to make the topic.

Look I know you guys are not doing it because there isn't enough requests.

Many developers have more popular products for those that have a mac and linux version. Mozilla for example had a Mac version of Firefox and they had Macintosh, Windows, and LInux versions from the start, which is partly why they were so popular.

Products like smartftp and winamp do not appear as popular becuase they are only for windows, so they don't get enough attention, even if they are popular for Windows.

Same here. I use Fetch for Mac. I like Fetch, but it doesn't have enough. I have a site which has a database of music and videos and I need a good ftp program.
