AndCat - Logo

AndCat is an Android application written in Python that uses the Kivy framework. It's pretty prototypical.

You can do two things with AndCat: send TCP streams and receive TCP streams. This mean you can send files between any other device that's running AndCat, netcat, or any device that can use TCP sockets.

I made this to learn more about Kivy and to scratch a pain I've always had - transfering larger files from my computer to my phone or tablet. You can read more about how this happened on my blog.

I'll make a release build of the app available on the Google Play store soon, for now you gotta build it by hand. If something's not working, there's some good docs.
