Share your files with style

Over the internet, or even a local network, sending files to other computers can be a pain. Papaya solves this problem. Drop a file or folder onto Papaya, and you get back an address through which others can access that item.

Files of any size and kind are served directly from your own Mac, so there’s no need to wait for the file to upload somewhere. Your stuff is instantly available to anyone with a regular web browser.

Papaya is a web server dedicated to sharing your files with others. Sharing files is now incredibly quick and easy! It’s a matter of dragging files to Papaya’s dock icon, or the library list. The web address for downloading the file is copied automatically, ready for pasting into an e-mail or instant message.

This program is absolutely amazing, and since the file you are transferring does not go through any external servers, it transfers the fastest that your computers will allow.
I only use this for mac, but is there any program that works like this or similar to this that is for Windows (especially xp)?

Great program, Really great. Agreed, the $31 price tag is a bit steep but it doesn't have much competition.

I tried using all manner of alternates but nothing let me send files as quickly and easily as papaya. I wish it wasn't 31$ because it really is best in its class but feels kinda overpriced for what it does.

Requires 10.5 Leopard.

V1.1 is a topper!

this is great. the best piece of software in a while. you'll be able to instantly share files without any movements, make use of photobooth functions in osx... so to speak instantly share a picture of the moment of you. if you'll just want to pass around that one track you're right now listening to - just like two clicks! voila!

it is actually all of what you've been wanting for real, when you downloaded pando!

no servers between you and your friend, no ads, nothing. also drag and drop from all places.... like from your itunes playlist. including your albumcover!

awesome! - you'll just wish you've got one of those macnifying licenses - but then again... its ok! :)
