We were pretty impressed with Eltima Software’s Commander One when we looked at it last fall — it’s a great tool for all of those Mac power users who find the built-in OS X Finder app far too limiting, and an advanced dual-pane file manager for Mac written entirely in Swift. Now at version 1.5, the latest Commander One (free/$30) adds a nice list of new features and connectivity options, making an already great tool even better. A new Connections Manager provides a streamlined way to configure support for FTP, Amazon S3, Google Drive, and Dropbox accounts, and you can also now tie in Dropbox Business and Microsoft OneDrive, along with any server supporting the WebDAV protocol, although you’ll need to invest in the $30 Pro upgrade for some of the more advanced online services.
Additional new features include support for working with IPA, APK, JAR, EAR, and WAR archives, support for both text and binary file searching in the built-in file viewer, better customization of columns and background colors, and support for OS X Services. The FTP client has also been dramatically improved and can resume downloads and reconnect on errors, along with improvements to working with large files on Amazon S3.
