If you are a Mac user then you already know the importance of finder in your life. It is possibly the best tool on OS X El Capitan as it comes with a lot more stuff but if you are one of those people who migrated from windows or have used windows, then you might be definitely missing the dual-pane file manager on your Macbook.
This feature doesn’t only gives you a windows like appearance but also increases the productivity. Eltime Commander One Pro is the one which fulfills the above needs. If you are one of those people who has used Total Commander on Windows, then you are going to use Commander One Pro on your Mac for sure! Both of them look identical to each and even offer similar functions.
The very first time you open this app, you get to see all the stuff this app can do. It is specially built for OS X and comes with dual-pane file management. You can also setup the hotkeys. This app even comes with two panels which you can use at the same time.
The traditional file managers show all the files, folders in a single view but with the help of this app, you can change the view to Full, Brief and Thumbs which you can easily understand if you are a Mac user. If you are a Pro use then you can easily see hidden files with just a single button. It is not something which everyone likes to tinker with but if you know how to get around it, you can easily see what’s hidden in your system.
With the Dual Pane system you even get the ability to have multiple tabs in each of them. This app has got a nifty search tool which can search anything you want in every nook and corner of your system. Whether it be sub folders or the compressed folders, this app will search through everything. You also get to choose from different text encoding.
You can even mount iOS or MTP device but it requires you to get some extensions, also that’s not a native feature of this software. ZIP, 7ZIP, TBZ, TGZ and tar.bz2 are few of the compressed file formats which work flawlessly with the software.
Commander One Pro comes with a Process Viewer which helps you to see which apps are affecting your Mac. This is an essential feature if you want to see which heavy processes are running in the background.
You even get a bunch of shortcuts which you can find in the preferences section. These shortcuts can be set by the user and really help to do stuff quickly.
Commander One Pro can also work as a FTP manager client. Users can run FTP in one tab while use the ther tab for hard drive folders which can be used to transfer files by dragging them. The app can even save FTP details which can help the user to access the server with a single click. It is one of the best as well as the easiest feature of Commander One Pro.
That’s not the end, you also get the support for themes, although they don’t look so elegant but it totally depends on everyone’s individual taste. If you are someone who has a lot of use of cloud storage then rejoice as Commander One Pro supports Dropbox too!
Moving to Commander One Pro from the OS X Finder can be a bit uneasy in the starting, the UI is a bit cluttered due to all the functions it offers. But still you will get used to it within few minutes.
The FTP manager for OS X is what I can call the Commander One Pro as. There is a free and paid version of the software, and I am sure the paid one is what would fulfil all the needs of the users.
