Open iTunes to buy and download apps.
The most powerful way to view your documents on the go.
This app runs only on the iPad. Want to run Air Sharing on your iPhone or iPod touch as well? Check out our new Universal edition, simply called Air Sharing.
"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

Do you like Air Sharing? Please take the time to leave a User Review whenever you update the app. Let people know how you use Air Sharing!
I have been using air sharing for several years now and found it works well.
Just updated to Apples IOS8 and the app no longer loads. Very annoying!!! as I found no mention of compatibility issues beforehand. For this reason you get a big fat 1 star.
After a week of not working, they have overcome the ios8 update problem. I have my files back! :)
So now I will go back to a five star rating.
