So, you're sitting at home working on your computer, and you need to transfer a file, web address, or even just a snippet of text to one of your other computers on the network. What do you do? You could try sending it over the network, and hope that your sharing and permissions settings are set up correctly. You could email it to yourself, logging into your email on one machine, logging out, and then logging into the destination machine. Or you could break out your flash drive and sneaker-net the stuff over to the other machine. Thrilling options, aren't they?
What if I told you that you could just copy it to your clipboard on one machine, then paste it from the clipboard on the other machine? Or, better yet, just drag and drop items between two completely different machines? Sounds awesome, yet implausible, right?
Simidude delivers exactly this functionality. Once you install Simidude, you'll be able to drag and drop files, folders, text, and HTML addresses between any of your computers, no matter if they're running Linux, Windows, or MacOS!
Simidude synchronizes your clipboards so items that you copy to one clipboard are instantly available on every other clipboard on the network. You can even use Simidude to drag files to and from Virtual Machine servers! Items can be dragged out of the Simidude window directly into applications to launch them. One of the most common situations involving machine-to-machine file transfers is with digital photos, and you'll be pleased to see that Simidude offers you a handy thumbnail image of every image file that you drag into it!
Simidude even maintains a running memory of the items that you've copied to the clipboard, making it easy to manage clipped items. For instance, if you've copied an item to the clipboard before, you don't have to do it again - just find it in your Simidude list and activate it. Plus, you can perform full-text searches through your clipboard items!
Oh, but there's one more thing -- Simidude is incredibly easy to use! It connects automatically to all running instances without the need to setup network connections, server ip addresses and the like.
