I need an application developed for Max OS X 10.4. This application (mac2ftp) will allow users to easily schedule backups of critical data. Rather than backup to a mounted disk or DVD, mac2ftp will backup to a provided web server via FTP. Features to include: * connect via FTP by automatically detecting the current Internet connection. * simple interface where the user will select which files/folders to backup * ability to schedule backups, or set automatic daily/weekly/monthly (etc) backups. * ability to choose between the most popular compression formats. see [url removed, login to view] for a full list. * ability to store multiple FTP credentials, so user can easily schedule different backups to different servers. * ability to retrieve and decompress backup to user desktop (or appropriate folders). I.e. a system restore option. * a clean, mac-tastic user interface. Large graphic buttons, large fonts, professional packaging. I'm looking for an app that is easy enough for a n00b, but powerful enough for a pro. The programming end of this should be pretty easy; I expect you to spend the bulk of your time developing an extremely sexy user interface. I can be flexible with both time and budget, so long as you can provide me with a professional quality app.
