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.


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

WhatsApp Messenger 2.12.11

Free Full Commercial Software

WhatsApp Messenger is the world's most popular instant messaging app for smartphones.

You can use it to send and receive text and voice messages, photos, videos, even call your friends in other countries, and because it uses your phone's internet connection it might not cost you anything at all (depending on whether you'll pay data charges).

It's easy to set up and use. There's no need to create and remember new account names or pins because it works with your phone number, and uses your regular address book to find and connect you with friends who use WhatsApp already.

You can talk one-to-one or in group chats, and because you're always logged in there's no way to miss messages. Even if your phone is turned off, WhatsApp will save your messages and display them as soon as you're back online.

There's plenty more (location sharing, contact exchange, message broadcasting) and the app is free for a year, currently $0.99/ year afterwards.

Version 2.12.11 brings:

• Links that you share or receive will now include a rich preview. When sending a link, you have the option to not include a rich preview.
• Additional 3D Touch features: You can now quickly Peek and Pop chats.
• Redesigned Settings tab. 
• You can now view all your starred messages across all your chats in Settings — Starred Messages.
