Peers (The Application)

Recommended Posts

Hello,

 

We are developing a novel app using the Sync API. It's a simple social network designed to help people "keep in touch". Real-world uses for Peers would be, for example:

 

1. To replace Twitter as a means of disseminating personal messages

 

2. To conceptually reengineer the "business card" into something "live"

 

3. To perform the role of "social coordinator" at a new level of proficiency

 

4. To leverage personal file sharing on a large scale

 

5. To enable all kinds of private networks where uniform dissemination of information is difficult (schools, companies, etc.)

 

The app is in a very rough stage of development but I would like to try an alpha-test to see how the syncing works. Hopefully the Mac (Apple) version will be in a testable state within a week or so. If you'd be interested in helping out, let me know!

 

Thanks, Jon

Hi tuxpoldo,

 

No, for the sake of staying "stealthy" there's no general information available yet. I'm happy to answer any questions though.

 

The version I would like to test is a Macintosh desktop app which will contain the BTSync app inside the package.

If it does not interfere with the normal operation of a standard installation of BitTorrent Sync, I'm available for testing (2 x Mac Mini with Mavericks, 1 x MacBook Pro with Mountain Lion)

Tuxpoldo, great!!! I have verified that the API only affects the binary that is pointed to in the config file. So your standard installations should be untouched. I am using 1.3.67 inside Peers.
