iPhoneDrive for Mac lets you keep your files on your Apple iPhone

Ecamm Network today announced the release of iPhoneDrive for Mac. iPhoneDrive is a Mac OS X application which lets the iPhone be used for file storage. It features drag and drop, making it fast and easy to move files back and forth between the Mac and iPhone.

“iPhoneDrive is the first Mac application targeted specifically towards the iPhone, and the only way to use it to store files. We’ve added one more use to an already very useful device,” says Ken Aspeslagh, Ecamm Network’s iPhone specialist, in the press release.

Another feature is the ability to copy entire folders to and from the iPhone with a single drag. Possible uses include moving files between work and home, backing up important data, and keeping useful apps and installers with you at all times.

System Requirements:
• Apple iPhone
• USB 2.0
• Mac OS X 10.4.10 or later
• iTunes v7.3 or later

iPhoneDrive costs US$9.95. A fully-functional demo (works for 7 days) is available free of charge to let users try it out before purchasing.

  1. Yeah, we “expect” Apple to allow this functionality in the near future.

    We also “expect” Apple to give the iPhone away for free, and add a button that delivers Natalie Portman directly to the user’s bedroom. (I hear they are waiting a month so they can add the cheerleader chick from Heroes as an option as soon as she hits 18.)

    At this point those second and third expectations are as realized from Apple as the first.

    However, until Apple adds that functionality it is worth $9.95 to be able to leave the thumb drive or iPod at home and just use the iPhone to carry files back and forth.

  2. Q: Once I copy files to the iPhone, can I view/access the files through the phone?

    A: No, iPhoneDrive is only for file storage. There’s no way to access your data via the iPhone’s interface.

    * – then who cares – use a stick drive …..

  3. This doesn’t do you a lot of good if you wanted to, say, take your files somewhere beside the computer running OSX with the app installed. Are there people that transport files from their computer to the same computer?

  4. “btw does anyone know where to get an ‘I’m a Mac shirt?'”

    I got one for a friend here.

    “Are there people that transport files from their computer to the same computer?”

    No, but if I have a Mac at home and at work, it wouldn’t be that much of a stretch to install the app in both places.
