Ratings and Reviews
Amazing!!-- Just follow the simple help file
First, if you are looking at this app and see all the 1 star reviews, it is because people did not read the directions. I am so impressed with this application that I fired up iTunes to rate it 5 stars and write my first review in iTunes.
I have been switching out thumb drives and formatting them to work on mac and windows today as I have been setting up my windows 7 machine. I wanted to transfer files EASILY from the mac to the windows machine and vise versa. I would never have guessed my little iPod would do it beyond my expectations.
Follow the "help" instructions in the app, it takes seconds to configure for mac or windows. If you do this, it is not confusing. I set my iPod up on my mac and windows machine in a couple of minutes. Now my iPod shows up as a network drive on my comnputers! I can drag files from the mac onto my iPod, preview them from the iPod, and my windows machine can access the files, and vice versa. It makes the iPod or iPhone a super fast, portable server. If you like thumb drives, and it would help to not have to plug it in to one computer and switch to another, get this app-- you can wirelessly connect several computers to the iPhone at once and swapping files is several times quicker than using a thumb drive.

This app seems to be nice in the way it works. I Like that it's Webdav instead of a bad implementation of a mini web server like most apps. I gave an extra star for the Webdav. :D
I must point out that it's a little hard to get back to the file list as you have to tap a very small part of the screen to "go back" after viewing things fullscreen (like images).
Hopefully iPhone OS 4's new API's will yield saving your images to your photo library on the mobile device or could that be done now? * cough yes, cough* :D
Requiremnt #2 ruins this: iPhone and computer must be on same Wifi. Lame.
At home, no problem with having same WIFI: I might be copying files that I want to bring to work. But I don't have WIFI at work. Many do, many don't. This app won't work for me. I'd like to know if there's an app that exists like this which does NOT have this "same Wifi" requirement. BTW, I don't think this app is designed to allow you to copy pics and videos taken with the iPhone, onto your PC. You need to think of of as a "dumb" USB drive: the app creates a specific amount of dedicated storage space on the iPhone which can be used to copy files to from a PC. The app does not "see" anything outside it's storage domain.
With Family Sharing set up, up to six family members can use this app.
