The Ultimate Mac and Android File Manager | Commander One – Review

Commander One is one of the revolutionary applications from Eltima Software that gives you an easy time when it comes to transferring and handling multimedia files between your Mac and mobile devices. It works with both Smartphones and Tablets and the technology is just mind-blowing. It’s easy to use and very intuitive. In this review, we will be evaluating the software to highlight its cool features and show you how to download it.

The User Interface & User Experience

Commander One’s user interface is unique to the application. Whenever you find anyone talking about a dual-pane interface on the Mac, chances are that they are referring to this software. Commander One comes with a dual-pane interface that makes file management on the Mac far much easier than most Mac OS X users are used to. Normally, with Finder, you’ll have to jump between Windows and Tabs to transfer and manage files. Things are slightly different and better when using commander One. The dual-pane interface enables you to transfer files easily between two distinct locations on the Mac without necessarily opening different windows or jumping from tab to tab. Moreover, you don’t need to crack your head figuring out how things are done. The software is intuitive, particularly for Mac OS X users because it works similar to Finder, but only with a few slight differences due to the extra convenient features, it comes with. The interface also enables you to easily navigate your Mac’s file systems to manage files.

Software Features

File Management

Commander One really transforms the way you handle file management on a Mac. It comes with many convenient features that are not built-in on the Mac system. It enables you to do tasks you either wished you could do on a Mac or you didn’t know you could do. I’ve tried the software and I think Finder is going to be on the bench for a while, if not indefinitely.

Commander One is also meant to work with mobile devices. It gives you complete access to your Mac’s file management system such that you can transfer files to or from your iPhone or iPad. It works just as well with Tablets.

I believe you’ll also find it convenient for Android devices. Not many software exist that will give you the kind of control that this one will give you when it comes to Android file transfer.

Furthermore, you don’t even have to transfer files to your Mac to access them. You can just plug in the mobile device to your Mac computer and access the files on it through your Mac, just as if you were accessing an external drive.

The data transfer speed is fast. You won’t notice any sluggishness. You can transfer files using drag and drop if you wish.

FTP Client

Another interesting feature that you will find interesting and convenient in the software is its built-in FTP client. It enables you to effortlessly interact with remote servers via SFTP, FTP, and FTPS. If you’d like to make any file transfers between your Mac and external Servers, you will find this feature of the software both convenient and reliable.

Miscellaneous Features

Commander One also comes with a myriad of other features that facilitate file transfer not just between your Android, Apple products, and Mac but also with other external file management services like Dropbox, OneDrive, Google Drive, or Amazon S3.

I hope you can see by now that this software is the ultimate file manager on Macs. I think, perhaps, the most beautiful thing about it is its support for non-Apple products and services. In addition, the above are not the only features because there are even more like a Terminal Emulator, Process Viewer, and the ability to extract archives and compress files.

All the above features and more are highlighted on the software’s webpage. If you are interested in the software, you can download it from the Eltima Software website. It’s a free software with a paid PRO Pack edition. There is a trial version that you can download from the site. On the website, look for the icon (1) on the image below. Click on the black “Mac App Store” (1) icon to download the paid version or click on the link below the icon (2) to download the trial version to give it a spin.

If you have always wanted a software that will enable you to easily manage files on your Mac, between your Android and Mac, as well as other non-Apple products, Commander One is the software for you.
