Papaya attempts to simplify remote filesharing

updated 11:40 am EDT, Wed April 9, 2008

Papaya 1.0 ships

Sweden's Lighthead Software has released the first version of Papaya, a tool for quick filesharing with distant parties. It operates as a web server, automatically producing URLs that can be sent to peers; once configured, users need only drag files to the program's Dock icon to enable sharing. Users can also choose to share folders, whether as groups of files or as compressed ZIP or TAR archives. Compression is handled by Papaya itself.

For security purposes shared items can be disabled, and the contents of groups can be concealed; in any case, files and groups can both be password-protected. So users can be sure of what they are downloading, the program also supports Leopard's QuickLook feature. Papaya requires Mac OS X 10.5 or higher, and costs $31. A demo version is available as well.
