"Air Sharing is one of our favorite iPhone apps, and it only gets better on the iPad's roomier screen. It lets you wirelessly mount your iPad as a drive on your computer so you can load it up with files. You can then view, share or print everything from PDFs to Excel documents. For anyone complaining about the lack of a file system on the iPad, this gives you one.… Highly recommended." — Gizmodo

Customer Reviews

Incredible and valuable app

This is the single most outstanding app I have and I have no clue why a few others have had problems it. Im a consulting professor at a university and like to travel to conferences and meetings without the burden of a laptop. I have easily transferred (within seconds) hundreds of my PDF files of my work that I can then instantly open on my iPad, and email to others in the room if required. When someone makes a Powerpoint presentation, I then ask for it to be ensiled, and download it directly to my Air Sharing Program after renaming it. I basically have (password-protected and backed up) over 10 years of consulting work at my fingertips on a mini-iPad by, in essence, creating a hard drive on my device.

Great, reliable file sharing and transfer

This is one of the original apps to share files between cloud services and, in my case, an iPad. Still one of the best. Simple, reliable, kept up to date, from a great company.

Missing items

Put some files in went back later to look at now the files are gone.
