Unsung Hero of the iPhone
I love--LOVE--Air Sharing and I've been using it for many years. So relieved they quickly fixed the bug that was keeping it from working on my iPhone 6. Because I thought it wasn't being supported, t deleted Air Sharing from my new iPhone 6 and tried similar products from other companies and they were horrible. I'm glad I went back to check one more time for an Air Sharing update!
The only problem I have with this product is that its makers don't make obvious one of its very best features! It took me a long time to discover it. I think they should make it clear that Air Sharing actually allows you to drag and drop files from your hard drive to your phone without even being connected to wi-fi. This is the feature I LOVE and can't find elsewhere. No wi-fi, BlueTooth, or Internet connection required! Nowhere in the description does it show or tell how in iTunes, you can select your phone, click on the Apps tab for your phone, scroll down, and see all the files stored via Air Sharing on your iphone. And you can drag files in to overwrite them, drag new files in, delete, etc. As far as I know, this is the only app that is a true USB drive!
This is one of the oldest apps to share files, it is one of the bests, but…
I don't know why this software always fail to have a working version on every iOS update, it is not acceptable for a paid app.
So, I give it 4 stars because is great and because it still have support for iOS 8, I hope next iOS update they prepare their app so users don't have to wait for the updates version.
First got Air Sharing when the iPhone 3G came out. Loved the ability to carry around documents so I could refer to them on my iPhone. When iOS was updated with the iBooks app, I kept using Air Sharing. The file management system is much better suited for how I manage files as compared to iBooks.
