Sending huge files from one device to another can be a pain, especially if you’re using bluetooth and it’s even worse if you’re trying to send the file to someone who uses an iOS device. Well today we’re looking at an app that offers a great solution to this, best I have used so far.
Dukto (please don’t ask me to pronounce it, I don’t know either), is a simple multi-platform file transfer application designed to work over a wireless or wired network. The beauty is in the simlicity of this app, all you have to do is ensure that the two devices you want to transfer the files across are both connected to the same wifi network, it doesn’t have to be a working network, so you can even create a network using your phone’s tethering capabilities. Don’t worry, Dukto does not require internet access to work, it just requires the network to use it as a medium to send the files.
When both your devices are on the same wireless network, simply open the Dukto app on both devices and you should be able to see other connected devices in the “buddies” tab.
Tap on the device you want to send the files to, navigate to the files and select them to be sent. That’s all you have to do, the files will be transferred, regardless of the size and it is way faster than bluetooth. Since its multi-platform, it works across android and iOS, yes, even from your phone to your pc and vice versa.
If you don’t like the green color, you can always change it. You can also change the device name to your preference.
