Dukto – LAN file transfer made easy

While there may be several apps  and softwares deisgned for local file transfer there are none as easy and simple to use as Dukto. While I used it often on Windows Phone 8.1 the app has now made the move to a proper UWP app. So it is now available via the Windows store for the PC too. A Win 32 version for Windows contnues to be available for users on older versions of Windows.

The main features of the app as mentioned on the website

  • Simple user interface
  • No server or internet connection needed
  • Zero configuration
  • Clients auto-discovery
  • High speed file transfer
  • Multi-OS native support
  • Portable version available
  • Multi files and folders transfer
  • Transfers log
  • Send and receive text snippets (eg. useful for sending URLs)
  • Open received files directly from the application
  • Windows 7 taskbar integration with progress and transfer indicator
  • Show your IP addresses on the IP connection page
  • Full Unicode support
  • Metro style UI
  • Free and open source

Due to a bad experience from some users being hostile towards him despite being a free app the developer has hidden the app from the store. It can only be downloaded via the link below
