Commander One is a dual-pane file manager for macOS, created entirely in Swift. The app is developed by Eltima Software.[2]

Apart from basic operations such as creating and managing folders, deleting, copying, moving and renaming files, it also provides functionality that default OS X file manager does not. The app exploits the classic dual-pane interface ideology, offers multi-tab browsing, advanced search, hotkeys setup, ZIP support; displays hidden files, allows renaming files or folders when moving, working with local and network drives. So-called Brief mode is meant for browsing many files and folders.[3][4][5][6]

There is a paid edition of this application known as PRO Pack. Its extra benefits include built-in FTP client; ability to mount MTP and iOS devices; RAR, TBZ, TGZ, 7z formats support; Dropbox integration; Terminal emulator and more.[7] Positioned as an app for ‘Mac power users’, Commander One replicates the functionality of a namebrand dual-pane file manager, but also has features aimed specifically at OS X users.[8]


MacWorld rated Commander One as 3.5 out of 5 stars, concluding that it adds some useful functions to the standardFinder, but it was let down by its user interface and bugs in some of its functions, in particular with built-in FTP manager; the article was later updated with a notice that the problem with FTP manager had been solved by a subsequent update (version 1.2).[9]

TechRepublic's review mentions that Commander One offers convenient efficiencies and simplifies the workflow with its dual pane interface and a number of features, like FTP client, compression support, Terminal Emulator and Dropbox integration. In general author finds it a handy application to use.[10]

Tom Nelson in his review of Commander One on About.com highlights the app's features, including File Viewer, FTP/SFTP/FTPS client, Dropbox integration, view modes etc., and draws the conclusion that 'Commander One provides additional file management capabilities at a very reasonable price (free), and offers more advanced functions as add-ons that you can purchase or not, depending on your needs.' [11]
