Transfer files over Rendezvous network.

Overview

Schick allows you to transfer files over Rendezvous network. I wanted a simple and fast way to exchange small files, like Word-Documents, Pictures, URLs, etc.

iChat and similar tools need much configuration and registering - I wanted a technique that would "just work". I used to use OS X' FileSharing and the DropBox, but I don't get notified, and I have to mount the other user's Home DropBox by hand. Additionally the number of logged in users on OS X Client is limited.

Features:
  • Rendezvous-enabled
  • No configuration necessary
  • Automatically fetches username and user image from your Mac Preferences / Address Book
  • Lets you transfer files to Macs in your local network
  • Lets you browse and get files from Macs in your local network
  • large file (>2 GB) support
  • IPv6 enabled

What's new in Schick

Version 5.0:
  • Fixed UUID-Creation-Bug (could cause duplicate entries in browser)
  • Improved compatibility
  • Improved user interface
  • Many minor issues fixed

A Superlative application. I have 5 Macs and some are wirelessly networked via an Airport Extreme Base Station (with additional Airport Express) With this application moving files between Macs is a "no-brainer" as we say in the U.S.A. The interface is perfectly intuitive. The author should SELL this feature to Apple for inclusion in the Golden Master of Tiger (OS X 10.4)! That is how good this is !

A pretty small app, works as described. Perhaps the UI may be a little bit refined.

After opening the app I get this message "Problem: Resolving your host's addresses took veeery long. Is the DNS set up properly and reachable?" and it slow downs as hell. My computer use my router as a DNS server. Any advice for solving this? Thanks in advance.

I'm currently working on transferring files over network boundaries (not using bonjour), would that be also a cool feature for you?

Neat app, but I prefer the simplicity of DropCopy. No GUI, just drag and drop.

I downloaded this and rather like it. However, one thing is that it seems to have issues with sending Applications. When you do the app shows up all the indivdual components of the application on the recieving person's computer. I do understand that this is becase you are actually sending a folder, but it is quite annoying for the person recieving the app since they have to wait for Schick to put up its notice for each of these files.

One word: ASTONISHING! This pearl is indispensable. Finally, I repeat, finally someone makes a file transfer application for computer-to-computer (LAN) transfers that actually works. I can't believe why Apple didn't streamline such a trivial task to be as simple as it is with Schick... Again, I'm so glad that you made this, Wurst-Wasser!! It may sound like I'm over-exaggerating here, but now I now I'm saved from tearing any more hair from my already half-balded head. There is but one (very minor) thing that I'm wondering about. Is it possible to set it up so that I don't have to have the application up and running on both computers in order to send files? I guess this isn't doable unless there is a daemon for it, which might be too cumbersome to create. What I'd like to propose is, that you might consider adding the option not to show (hide) the Dock icon (I'm not a big fan of having lots of things in the Dock jumping around ;), and additionally make the Bezel have an 'Ok' button on it and have it show up forever, until acknowledged by clicking ok button (like for instance the Bezel for incoming calls in Skype, etc.). Maybe Growl support would be something to look into. Just some suggestions... But all in all. This is a very neat little app that really WORKS. It's a permanent keeper for sure. I tried DropCopy for the same tasks, but it often didn't work and it forced me to compress some files as .zip's before sending. Now, Schick takes the lead in the Mac LAN-file transfering competition. Nothing compares to this.

This is great! I installed it today and am already using it. My colleague and I have frequent need to transfer small image, text and graphic files. In the past we would do Go -> Connect to Server -> Pick a share to mount -> Open the necesary folder and then leave this mounted. Now we simply leave Schick running in the background and drag and drop files for delivery. The instant notification in the dock icon is a great way to be notified of the new file arriving. Schick takes something that was already easy and makes it automatic. Talk about Keeping it Simple! p.s. the only thing not "automatic" was having to open ports in the firewall. However, the author provides idiot proof instructions on how to do this.

Why does it need 10.3, or is it just that it hasn't been tested on 10.2?
