    Has Fetch been optimized and tested for the Mojave upgrade?

    Fetch 5.7.7 works (after a warning dialog) on macOS 10.13 High Sierra and macOS 10.14 Mojave. Based on Apple's statements I expect that "unoptimized" 32-bit apps like Fetch 5.7.7 will not work on macOS 10.15, due out in late 2019.

    I am currently investigating the feasibility of producing a 64-bit version of Fetch. I hope that it will happen, but I can't promise that I will succeed, or when, so if you need a guarantee of 64-bit compatibility I would recommend investigating alternatives such as Transmit by Panic Software.

    Hi Jim,

    It would be great if you could produce a 64-bit version. Very fond of Fetch, having used it since I first published my website in 2000.

    Count me in as another big Fetch fan!
    Jim, we are cheering you on to 64 bits!
    I've been using Fetch since it came on a floppy 20 years ago.
    More than willing to pay for an upgrade if that helps!

    I have been using Fetch since 2012 and, although I also have Filezilla, Fetch is far less intimidating and so easy to use, a pure Mac app. It is my preferred client for ftp transfers, in fact.

    Please develop a 64-bit version, even if it means paying a little extra for a supplemental product key :-)

    hi Jim,
    The most important feature for me in Fetch is the ability to create quick shortcuts to the transfer, mirroring etc. using the drag & drop icons.

    It does not work on Mojave. I am eager to buy a new 64bit version.

    Best Regards!

    Hi Mariusz,

    Those features should work with Fetch 5.7.7 (a 32-bit app) on Mojave. Could you contact me at with more details of what you're seeing?

    Please, please upgrade - i know it works now with Mojave - but i really don't know if i can continue to work without the Running Dog I've grown used to my entire career as a graphic designer!! I agree with everyone - more than willing to purchase upgrade.

    I am also a fan of Fetch and have used it for years. Hoping that you develop the 64bit version so that it can move with us into the future...

    and if this requires an upgraded fee, that's totally understandable.

    (I am a "dog" person and would also hat to lose the running dog.

    I have used Fetch for many years, but suddenly it won't open. I downloaded the lates version (5.7.7) from the Mac App Store and it won't open either. I am running the latest version of Mojave, 10.14.2. I have tried moving the app to trash and downloading it again, restarting frequently. Nothing helps. HELP!!!

    I join the club of Fetch fans as a long time user. I have been using for so long I cannot remember the exact configuration I used at the time. It might have been an SE/30 or MacIIci.

    So: could you please upgrade? Thanks!

    Groeten, Arnoud
