Transmit for iOS


Packed with exclusive iOS 8 features that will blow your mind.

If you're a pretty serious nerd like us, you probably have access to an FTP, SFTP, WebDAV or Amazon S3 server that you use for, say, web serving, group collaboration, as a personal cloud storage service, or who knows what.

Transmit for iOS allows you to connect to that server and manage all your files, exactly as you'd expect. Transfer. Make folders. Rename. Delete. Set Permissions. You know how it works, and Transmit does it.

But it gets a lot better. Thanks to the power of iOS 8, Transmit for iOS will also extend the standard iOS Share sheet — the one you see in, say, Photos or Voice Memos, when you tap the Share button — to include a brand-new Transmit button. That means you can now share your Photos directly to your SFTP server, or share a podcast voice memo straight to Amazon S3. It's incredibly powerful.

And there's one more cool iOS 8 thing: in compatible applications, like iWork, you can Open a document directly off your server. And when you hit Save, it will silently and perfectly upload back to your server. In other words, you can use your server as your own seamless cloud storage. Amazing.

We're just getting started.

• Full Remote File Management
Login to your server. Upload. Download. Rename. Edit permissions. Make folders. Do it all.

• Save & Upload Files from the iOS Share Sheet
You can quickly send an image from your Photos, an audio file from Messages, or any iOS app that uses the standard system "Share" sheet, to your Mac or server.

• Connect to FTP, SFTP, S3 and WebDAV
Full support for Transmit's entire suite of protocols is now available to iOS users.

• Twin-Turbo Background Transfer Engine
The full power of Transmit's transfer engine is available, even while Transmit is in the background.

• The Joy of Drag & Drop
Why do no iOS apps use drag and drop? We wondered that too. Especially satisfying on the iPad — with Local on the left and Remote on the right it's smooth as silk to drag over a file.

• Edit Documents from Compatible Third-Party Apps
iOS 8-compatible third-party applications that implement the new iCloud document picker will have instant access to Transmit as a file source. Opening and saving files in these apps will relay changes back to Transmit to be uploaded onto your server.

• Panic Sync
You can sync your saved servers and credentials with Panic Sync, and keep them updated between Transmit for iOS and Coda (requires Coda 2.5). Eventually, we'll add support for Diet Coda and Transmit for Mac.

• iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus Ready
Looks great on any screen size.


What's new in version 1.2

We're always working to make Transmit iOS as good as it can be. Here's what happened this time:

• Greatly improved S3 support! Includes:
- AWS "Signature Version 4" authentication, which also enables the Frankfurt S3 region. (Finally!)
- The ability to set new attributes on files and buckets, including Bucket Log Retention, Storage Classes, Server-side Encryption, and more.
- Improved speed and reliability.
• SFTP now supports encrypt then MAC (ETM) for SHA2-512 and SHA2-256
• SFTP now prompts with the DSA or RSA fingerprint when connecting to a server for the first time
• WebDAV will no longer attempt to reconnect repeatedly on authorization failure
• Improved battery life (well, we’re now making fewer redundant connections, which means less load on your CPU, so why not)
• Small fixes: in some cases data wasn’t being refreshed in the UI where it should have been, some UI elements were the incorrect size, etc.

We hope you enjoy this update!
