Dukto (File Transfer Utility)
Dukto R5 for Playbook Released
Here is another fabulous Qt + QtQuick project, Dukto. It allows fast WiFi file transfer to any other device that is running Dukto.
Playbook joins a growing list of platforms that support Dukto including Windows, Linux, Mac, Symbian and Meego.
Compatible devices on your network are automatically detected with no setup required!
While the portrait orientation and Metro styling may not suit the Playbook, it is consistent with its representation on other platforms. I hope you all enjoy it.
Download it free on AppWorld
Please try it out and throw in any suggestions.
Currently I plan to add a landscape option, swiping support and faster UI.
What do you guys think of future side-loading support? Send a .bar to a Playbook and it's installed (from any phone/tablet/computer that runs Dukto!). If enough people vote for this, I'll add it to all Dukto clients

Yes, you can transfer files/text from one Playbook to another via WiFi.
If you're looking for Qt playbook apps, there's 1000s I've ported at least 20 (on my computer) and personally know of at least 300 on AppWorld right now (such as Evidence Hunt) and then there's others that haven't made it there yet (like Pacemaker).
Any Qt app can be ported to Playbook with little-to-no fuss and it's the basis of RIM's premier app toolkit, Cascades.

EDIT: NVM I figured it out, I didn't launch the app in my other playbook. Wow superb app. Like others I would like sideloading feature added, but that's gonna be real hard. Thanks again buddy

The side-loading feature will be easy as I already have the code for this. I used it in Dingleberry which is also a Qt app.
The only issue is getting it in to all the other clients (Windows/Linux/Mac/Symbian/Meego) as they aren't updated that frequently. I'll try to get this in for R6.
I'm thinking of having an option if filetype=bar and target=playbook, Send or Side-load. The side-load option will require password to be input.
Then, the device receiving will get side-load request and, if developer mode is disabled, it'll open security settings for them.

Been running this for a little while and forgot to say thanks - thanks!
A bar loading feature would be very cool am I properly led to believe there is also a windows and linux version of this app?
If there is, I have an idea I'd like to run by you
Yes, Windows/Linux/Mac/Symbian/Meego/Anything that runs C++
I have a new update coming out but approvals don't happen on weekend.

* You can now swipe left/right instead of tapping headings.
* Uses OpenGL for interface (very fast!)
* Now has proper image next to your device.
* Can detect device name (Playbook, Playbook 4G, Dev Alpha).
Should appear on AppWorld by Monday.
Yeah, it requires 7971+ because it's built with NDK 2.0 sorry

Hi, i just had an update on my two PB, i can't seem to press the icons, if I press it nothing happens.. I have tried sending a file from my pc to pb and my pb received it, but the same problem occurred and I can't press any icons except for the headings..
and also a feature that I wanted to ask since the first release, can it find my other PlayBook too automatically? I can manually input the IP address, but if this feature is already implemented, what am I missing?
and one more thing I have friend working in university, and connected her pb under a proxy, we can't find each other too. I'm at home... Is that feature not available?
The swipe feature is a nice gesture BTW
Edit: The 3 icons below are working I must say
The about links are not working too.

Hey, thanks for the bug report. I'll look into that. Something might have slipped past. Edit: Yeah the gestures are stealing events from the main UI :\
It should detect other devices on the same WiFi automatically. If not, there may be a firewall blocking that port or something similar.

I fixed bug as soon as I found it but unfortunately it's going to take a while to be approved.
I've pulled Dukto until the new release is approved.

Ok, new update is out with gestures disabled.
