OneButton FTP is a free graphical FTP client for the Mac. It can be used to connect to FTP servers and transfer files, and it has some nice features that make it a nice client, but there are also some problems. Let's start with the weak points. First, the app has been discontinued, so there is no support and there will be no updates, ever. Second, the performance is not the best I have seen around. FTP sites were slow to load, and sometimes they didn't even load at all. There are no errors or logs to see why a connection has failed, which makes it hard to diagnose the problem.

There are also some good things about this app. The first thing that comes to mind is that it is free. But I can also mention that it has a good design, a nice site manager that lets you save FTP connections that you often connect to and you can choose an app that you want to use if you want to edit files on FTP servers. This feature is nice for people who connect to FTP servers that host websites. The default app for this is TextEdit.

In conclusion, I wouldn't use OneButton FTP simply because it doesn't work well. The lack of support and updates is yet another reason.
