Panic Releases Transmit 5 With Major Improvements, but No Mac App Store Version

212
My goto FTP app. Always loved Transmit.

I’m kind of annoyed by the lack of upgrade pricing. I just bought Transmit 4 in May smh

From their FAQ:

Q: What if I just bought Transmit 4?
A: We’ve got you covered! If you bought from us after June 1st (or maybe even a little earlier), grab your Transmit 4 serial number and go here. (‘https://panic.com/transmit/upgrade.html’) If you bought from the Mac App Store in that timeframe, please send us an e-mail and we’ll help you out.

With that little bit in the parenthesis, I would reach out to them and see if they’ll make an exception for you…

I’m not surprised it’s not on the Mac app store. Apples 30% cut on desktop software is really quite a lot for developers (of which I am one). You can take payments using Stripe easily and they will only take about 1.4%-2.9% of a sale so if you have an hour free to implement Stripe on your website you can keep the other 27.1%-28.5% that Apple would take.

Their 30% works on the iPhone because there’s no way to sideload apps but on the Mac it doesn’t work that way.

These guys most likely will. It is a robust app that I have used for over 5 years now. I will gladly upgrade. One of the few non-subscription apps that integrated nicely in a workflow when needed and stayed put when not. No heartaches of constant payment. Even at full price, the software earns its keep far quicker, now with cloud service integration – I am looking at finally using my OneDrive for Business storages for multiple emails as a simple drag drop solution!! Can’t be more excited and happy about it!

The kind of people who use this sort of app are likely not going to be particularly bothered that it’s not in the mac app store.

Me, I’ll just continue to use the command line. While we still have one. 😀
