    AirDisk Pro allows you to easily turn your iPhone into an external drive for your Mac or PC, and it is temporarily free. This article states that the app "comes bundled with a host of supported formats for reading various documents, playing audio and video files, and more." While I haven't tested that claim just yet, I was able to establish a connection in under a minute and I'm transferring a file over to the iPhone for safekeeping right now.

    Once set up, you'll be shown an IP address that you can use on your computer to open a Finder window and drag and drop files to or from it (performing the appropriate transfer to or from your iPhone), or if this seems too intimidating, you can use your browser to get a web interface to the storage on your iPhone. If, on the other hand, it wasn't intimidating enough, you can open a Terminal window and FTP into your phone. This method will put some hair on your chest. :)

    I just tried this Rafagon. It seems to be pretty fast. (A fairly large sized picture in less than a second). I'd say it's pretty much on par with many of the other apps that do similar things. For me, it's a bit redundant, since I have several apps specific for what I'm trying to transfer. I do like it and perhaps one day I'll find a good use for it. Thank you very much for the heads up.
