This project has been put on hold indefinitely. You will NOT be able to connect to the service.

Hi.

Shake2Send is an application I made that allows two devices to pair and send contacts over the air.
To pair, the two devices shake at the same time (Similar to Bump for the iPhone). No bluetooth needed!

You can send contacts, as well as files.
Pictures will be displayed automatically, and CABs will auto install.


Version 1.0.1 released!


Instructions
Download the CAB.
Install.
Enter a name (Be unique for each device!)
Press Connect, and then shake both devices at the same time (Or within ~1 second).
When paired, Press Send and select a contact or file.

Known Issues
1. File sending is slow, try not to send big files (yet.)
2. Possible connection problem... still not sure on the details.
...More when I get more feedback

Changes
Latest version: 1.0.1
Better Auto connection
Bug fixes.
Better error messages
Some new artwork (not that different...)
Some internal code changes (Dynamic DNS, etc)
Better CAB File.

--0.61 Bug fix. Not an actual release.

0.6 Changes:
-Bug fixes, including the sending error.
-Some UI fixes and improvements
-Instructions picture
-File sending!
-Support for displaying pictures, and for auto-installing CABs.

Upcoming Features
1. Advanced options
2. Better looking UI
3. Auto-connect


Screenshots

Notes
1. You CAN use this app on non-gsensor devices. You will need to press Pair instead, and uncheck Use G-Sensor on the connect screen.
2. You will need .NET Compact Framework 3.5 in order to use this app.
3. If you want to host a private server for yourself (or prehaps a group of people), you still can download the server here:

But you will not receive automatic updates.

Version 1.0.1 CAB: http://windowsphonehacker.com/shake2send/

Enjoy, and give me feedback!

I am guessing both the device has to be on the same WiFi .. is that true ?

UPDATE : Guess not, if using the public server

Another Question : How will the app handle if there are 2 different people with the same name using the public server @ the same time ?

Great stuff none the less have given it some press on 1800PocketPC

If you WANT (paranoid I suppose), you can connect to a private server, but otherwise, the public server runs fine.

If there are two people with the same name on the public server at the same time... Hm, I actually think this might cause an issue, because the names are important in identifying devices. I'll have the server make sure no one chooses a taken name and patch it on my end

Thanks for the listing!

Duplicate names should be fixed now!
The server simply changes the internal name of a conflicting client and adds a _1 to it.

The "Me" label will display the same name (until next build), but when pairing it will include the _1.

All the technical stuff aside, the problem is fixed serverside.

New Version Soon!
Almost done with Photo/file sending, but before I release the new version, I need some more feedback.

You can probably expect it sometime next week

looks great. Cant wait to try this out, as it will make it easier to send contacts/photos/etc back and forth between phones without emailing or MMSing.

Greatly appreciated.

Greatly appreciated.

so after installing this on 2 phones and testing, here is what I have encountered.

- the application does not save the username/devicename that you give within the application when signing into the server. Would be awesome to have it auto-connect to your server and save the username/device name

- on first try, works exactly as expected

- on second try, when sending a contact from phone 1 to phone 2, if phone 2 IGNORES the contact, and subsequent contact sent from phone 1 to phone 2 comes across as that initial contact that was ignored. (basically, if you send the wrong contact, and phone 2 ignores it, you cannot send any other contacts to that phone, otherwise it comes across as that initial ignored contact

Best of luck, hope this all helps!!
