[prMac.com] Budapest, Hungary - BinaryNights, the makers of the popular file manager and FTP ForkLift have decided to engage in a grandiose experiment in cutting software prices with a mindboggling $9.95 offer on ForkLift for a week. The singular promo ends on June 30.
ForkLift's latest release added Folder Synchronization, a tool that allows users to keep their files synchronized between different volumes, computers or server accounts; Open in Terminal a much anticipated feature for pro users, as well as the added passworded zip, 7zip, tar and gz compression. The capability to Merge folders is a first on OS X and should be a welcome surprise to most switchers.
Forklift is a powerful file manager and ferociously fast FTP client clothed in a clean and versatile UI that offers the combination of absolute simplicity and raw power expected from a well-executed Mac software. ForkLift will connect to any remote server FTP, SFTP, Amazon S3, WebDAV, the SMB, NIS and AFP shares on your local network, or your Bluetooth mobile phone- pretty much anything you can plug into or hook up to a Mac.
ForkLift also carries a complete toolbox for managing your files, including Folder Synchronization, Batch Renaming, Archive handling, Application deleter, editing files over remote connections and many more. All these power features are packaged into a Finder-like, dual-pane interface that delivers superior workflow while remaining absolutely familiar to use, along with QuickLook, Spotlight search and all.
There are four of us at BinaryNights; all of us come from different IT backgrounds. We were originally involved with developing J2EE enterprise applications for telecommunication enterprises, like T-mobile. We bought our first Mac in early 2006 and immediately fell in love with the concept. It was obvious that this is a much more progressive market to develop applications for. Desktop application development was an exciting opportunity to shift to from the repetitive enterprise tasks.
