Dukto R6
A simple file transfer tool for your LAN

Dukto is a handy cross-platform tool which makes it very easy to transfer files across your local network, without worrying about operating systems, protocols, permissions, security or anything else.

The program has a very simple, Windows 8-like interface. An icon shows your current network name and device, and if a friend is connected to the same network, and also running Dukto (which runs on Windows, OS X for Intel 10.6.x or later, Linux, Android, there's even a commercial iOS version), then you'll see an icon representing their system, too. There's no need to specify IP addresses or anything else, the program just finds and displays it clients entirely automatically.

Clicking the icon for your friend's system will provide a list of options: you can send some text, specified files or folders. Or they can do the same thing on their installation to send data to you.

And once you've told Dukto exactly what you want to copy, it'll immediately get on with transferring the files for you.

There are a few small extras available, if you go looking. So a Network icon lists the network IPs Dukto has discovered, for instance, and an IP Connection option can send data to the address you specify.

For the most part, though, there's no need to worry about such complexities - Dukto just works. And so if, say, getting a friend's MacBook Pro communicating with your Windows network is a prospect you'd normally dread, this smart and simple program should prove to be a far easier alternative.

Version 6.0 includes:

•Update Qt libraries for Windows and OS X (on Linux the distribution provides Qt libraries);
•Added new theme colors and a color picker to choose your personal color;
•Added full support for iOS port (see Dukto for iOS project page);
•Implemented avatar picture support for Windows 8;
•Implemented full UTF-8 support for buddies’ name (previously it was only for text messages);
•Rewritten data receiving routine that should definitely solve some random and seldom stall while receiving data.

There's also now an Android version.

Verdict:

Dukto is a well-designed tool which makes it easy to transfer files across your LAN

Ashampoo Burning Studio 2013 (v11.0.6)

Free Full Commercial Software

Ashampoo Burning Studio 2013 is a compact, simple, but surprisingly feature-packed disc burning suite.

The program makes it easy to create simple data discs and audio CDs, for instance: just drag and drop your files onto the list area and you'll be burning the finished disc in a couple of clicks.

That's just the start, though. Burning Studio 2013 can also create data discs with customised, interactive multi-page menus, perfect if you'd like a more professional way to share and present the disc contents.

A built-in backup tool allows you to create backups which may be encrypted, compressed, and span several CDs, DVDs and Blu-rays.

And there are modules to create VCD or SVCD video projects; burn video DVDs or Blu-ray discs from prepared folders; create, browse or burn disc images (ISO, CUE/ BIN and Ashdisc formats are supported); copy discs, erase them, design and print disc covers, labels and booklets, and more.

The focus throughout is on ease of use, though, and so Ashampoo Burning Studio 2013 remains very straightforward, whatever you're doing. Most disc projects are created via the same simple interface, and for the most part all you have to do is drag and drop the necessary files. But experts will find more advanced options are only a click away, and if you need to then you can set ISO and UDF version, enable Joliet, make a disc bootable and more.

Note the download here will take you to the Downloadcrew Software Store where you can download Burning Studio 2013.
