File Magic is the file transfer utility that allows you to put any type of file on your handheld so you can take it with you. With File Magic, your iPhone or iPod touch acts like a thumb drive or briefcase with some special abilities. Supported file types can be viewed on your iPhone, and other files can be added as a means of transporting them to another computer (between work and home, for example).

File Magic is easy as 1-2-3:
1. Launch File Magic on the desktop and the handheld. The handheld application will ask you to allow the connection.
2. Drag and drop any file into the File Magic desktop and it will be transferred over Wi-Fi to the device. You will see the progress of the transfer on both the desktop and handheld applications.
3. Tap the folder, then the file you wish to view on the handheld.
- Import your address book to a text file on the desktop to back it up
- Create emails on the desktop and sync to the iPhone application for easy email capability when your desktop is offline (like when you are at the airport and don't want to pay for Wi-Fi access!)
Supported File Types:
.doc and .docx (Microsoft Word)
.htm and .html (web pages)
.pdf (Preview and Adobe Acrobat)
.ppt and .pptx (Microsoft PowerPoint)
.xls and .xlsx (Microsoft Excel)
--Music - Non-DRM files only (no copy protection)--
.m4v - Open a video in QuickTime (7.5 or later); Go to File > Export > Movie to iPhone. Then drag the resulting m4v file into File Magic.

Great, flexible application!
This is a really useful application. You can carry around almost any kind of files right on your iPhone/touch and view them there as well. The number of file types supported is impressive. And the whole thing couldn’t be simpler to use – drag a file or folder to the top area of the desktop application and it automatically appears on the handheld device filed in the proper category for its file type. No remote server is involved, so your data is always in your own control; you can password protect it on the device too. I’ve tried a number of different file management solutions. Each has advantages, but this one is best all around. Great job! Edit: And now version 2 adds the ability to move files between two iPhones/touches by Wi-Fi when on the same Wi-Fi network. Even better!
File Magic just really works.
I am a new iPhone user who uses Windows and was looking for some way to carry around "other" files like pdf's, Word and Excel files and the like. File Magic is the first app I tried, and I see no reason to go looking further. It has a very clean and intuitive interface both on the phone and on the desktop. I had absolutely no problems (firewall issues, etc.) setting it up on my workplace pc. The program is quick and displays all of the files I've thrown at it beautifully on the iPhone. I would have given it 5 stars, but I had one crash that locked my phone to the point that I had to do a "home/power button" reset. Other than that one occurence it has performed flawlessly. Well done.
The best iphone application for sending email attachments!!
If you are looking to be able to email documents from your iphone, this is the application for you. I use it to store & email primarily pdf's and image files and the upload from my laptop onto the phone is simply a click and drag process, using File Magic's software installed on my laptop. Most importantly, the email function is reliable (unlike the Files app from Olive Toast software). To email a doc from your phone, you just enter your email address that you're sending from, the email address you're sending to, and that's it. It does not make the process overly complicated. A perfect product for this type of need.
