Comment on Yummy FTP

I agree with mfichtner.

This app could need of a few extra bucks spent, hiring a designer so as to gain a higher visual overall level (including icon). I'm not saying it because I have a desire to sound negative, but this has been on my mind regarding this app, for a good while now. And because it's one of the most mysteriously unrecognized apps I can think of today, I find myself unable not letting it out.

A major reason behind the exorbitant hypeness of Transmit, as well as the large amount of people overlooking Yummy FTP, is due to the fact that the creators of Transmit devote great care to the necessity of visual delightfulness; an aspect that you simply <b>cannot</b> dodge in the competition between cutting edge Mac soft today. That's it. Icon is king. Along with a number of other details, of course. But the icon... Personally I'd argue that it's the single most important thing.

In comparison, Yummy FTP is a lot more trustworthy, a lot faster and simply has a lot more "roar" under the hood, than Transmit. Still, it lacks the looks of a real champion app. So, let's hear it for a substantial makeover.

January 8th 2008: Transmit, 3708 - Yummy FTP, 320.

I'll put everything I got, including two horrible cats and a lousy career on the bet that Yummy will be closing in by the end of the year, 31st of December 2008.
