    Hi, I own Fetch 5 and I just upgraded to Snow Leopard. I want to use Fetch 5 on my system but when I try to download 5.5.1, my serial will not work because apparently minor updates aren't free. -sigh-

    I would like to know where I can download the copy of Fetch that my serial will work with.

    Thanks

    Hi,

    Yes, Fetch 5.5 is a $10 upgrade; this is our first paid Fetch upgrade in over 4 years. If you purchased Fetch after January 28, 2009, or already have a Fetch 5.5 license, the Fetch 5.5.1 update is free.

    If you prefer not to upgrade, you can download older versions of Fetch for no additional charge here:

    I believe you want Fetch 5.3.1. (We have not extensively tested Fetch 5.3.1 on Snow Leopard, but we don't know of any serious problems using it on Mac OS X 10.6.)

    In case you want to consider upgrading, Fetch 5.5 includes the following significant new features:

    * You can now edit any kind of remote files with any application, and the changes will automatically be saved back to the server. Want to edit images with Photoshop? HTML files with Dreamweaver? Spreadsheets with Excel? Fetch 5.5 supports it.

    * You can preview all sorts of remote files with Apple's Quick Look technology by tapping the space bar -- just like in the Finder. (Mac OS X 10.5 and later.)

    * We've applied our twenty years of experience in Mac file transfer to make uploads more reliable than ever. If you've ever had large uploads stop or stall in the middle, you know how frustrating that can be -- Fetch 5.5 will automatically resume stalled or interrupted uploads and keep going until your upload is complete.

    * A quicker Get Info command that does not calculate folder sizes until you ask for them.

    * Support for gestures on laptop trackpads.

    * A redesigned Recent Folders menu to improve readability and display of the folder hierarchy.

    * The file list now remembers the last sorting choice.

    * And dozens of other fixes and improvements. For a complete list, visit http://fetchsoftworks.com/fetch/release-notes

    You can upgrade by following this link:

    Please let us know if you have any further questions.

    Thanks,

    At this point you're making it hard not to upgrade haha

    I'm used to using Transmit which supports syncing my server host/user/pass to my MOBILE ME sync stuff so they're on all of my computers.

    If you could promise this would be in the next free update it would seal the deal.

    Hi,

    We can't promise that we'll have MobileMe shortcuts synching in our next update, but it is definitely something we're interested in adding. Note that you can sync your Keychain, which will sync the passwords for your Fetch shortcuts.

    Thanks,

    I'm glad you like the idea

    I guess I'll be waiting to update until I see it on the feature list.

    Thanks for the great support

    Hi,

    We don't support syncing shortcuts with MobileMe (which is probably a good thing, since MobileMe is going away next year), but as of Fetch 5.7 we do support syncing shortcuts with Dropbox. For instructions see:
