At a Glance
SmartFTP Client is a whole lot of FTP client. This 30-day trial has
all the features of the paid version except for support and
maintenance. It has the typical FTP (file transfer protocol)
features, like a Favorites list and secure connections (TLS/SSL
168-bit HIPAA-compliant). But it adds niceties like drag-and-drop
functions, multiple concurrent connections, the ability to transfer
files between remote hosts, an FTP command line, and support for
The interface can be a bit overwhelming upon launch. Hiding
components (such as logs, status, transfer queues, and additional
hosts) you don’t need makes it much simpler. But the interface is
eminently customizable, so you can show all of these panes and more

If you want to do simple FTP transfers to update a web site or just
transfer files, SmartFTP Client will likely be more than you need.
But if you are in your FTP client for much of the day or you need
advanced functions, SmartFTP Client is worth checking out.
