Today we’re proud to announce the release of the public beta of Steed, our first Windows application. We’ve been working hard for months to bring you the best experience we can, and we hope you will like it.
Steed is a client for browsing and transferring files and folders across multiple protocols : FTP, SFTP, Amazon S3 and Microsoft Azure. It is designed to provide consistency over multiple standalone clients, and improve user experience through a thoughtful design.
Using Steed during the beta is totally free, you may download it right away from the application page. You will need Windows XP SP3, Vista or 7. The latter provides the best user experience. Don’t forget to check the auto-update, as each version of the beta is limited in time (30 days) to ensure that you have the latest fixes and features.
To help you getting started, you will be able to import directly your bookmarks from other software (Filezilla, Cyberduck, FlashFXP, WinSCP) and use them with Steed. If you have to install it on several computers, synchronize them with your Dropbox or SkyDrive account.
Enjoy it, and please feel free to provide us some feedback on the support page or twitter, it will be very helpful to help improve the application until final release. And if there are some features you would like to see, don’t hesitate to share them with us !
