  • What do you like best?

    Functions just like your file browser, making it very simple to transfer files. Price is very low and it does its job very well. Comparable to filezilla, but instead of working through directories it surfaces the important items to help you keep organized.

    What do you dislike?

    No complaints- this product does its job and does it well.

  • It doesn't take a long time to play through Fetch from start to finish, but this whimsical, kid-friendly puzzle journey is brimming with style and charm.

  • In my years of use, I’ve found Fetch to be quick, easy and convenient to use, and reliable. My main complaint about Fetch is that it terminates its connection with the remote server after a short period of inactivity, making it necessary to wait while the program reloads the server’s file list again before it can commence a subsequent transfer.
