Commander One features

Perfect Finder alternative

Commander One enhances everything that Finder is capable of. You can use it to manage files in two panes simultaneously, set up hotkeys for quick access, or view hidden files. The app also allows you to enable Brief Mode for viewing and managing multiple files at once.

Search using RegExp

Advanced search for advanced file management: Search by file contents or via Spotlight, use Regular Expressions for extra precision, and track files across archives. You can customize your search settings in Commander One’s search window — all in one place.

Clouds and network servers, connected

Flexibly manage files across cloud accounts and network servers right from the app. Commander One has a built-in FTP client for remote server connections. You can also integrate any number of your favorite cloud accounts into the app — from Dropbox to Google Drive to Amazon S3, and more.

Access content from any device

The app supports iOS, MTP, and Android file transfer, which means you can use it to manage content stored anywhere. Connect any device to Mac — be it an iPad, Android phone, or camera — and Commander One will make it available as a mounted drive.

An all-mighty archiver

Commander One is also a great archiver that can unpack any file — so that you don’t have to switch to third-party tools. It works with ZIP, RAR, TBZTGZ, and 7z. A spoiler: The compression functionality is on its way, enabling you to search across compressed files inside the app.

Have all processes controlled

Keep track of every active process on your Mac via Commander One’s Process Viewer. In one handy pane, you can monitor everything that’s going on on your computer, get detailed information about the processes, and quit any of them in one click.

One membership,
endless benefits.
