Just found a really neat app called "Air Sharing" in the free applications category. It says it'll be free for only two weeks.

Air Sharing allows file transfer from iphone to your mac/pc...

I think it is a very useful app.

Thanks for the post. Going to check out it while it's free.

Once it goes paid will we have to pay for updates?

Thanks for sharing, looks like a cool application.

Quick question; if the application is closed no files are shared, correct?

Correct...until Apple decides to allow otherwise.

I think it will end up going the way of the dodo like NetShare... so grab it while you can...

Doubt it. "Files," which is pretty much the same thing, has been around for over a month without being pulled. Annotater is similar as well (but has a few more functions), and has been around for a bit as well.

I saw in an article on TUAW that it was free and downloaded it last night (um.. really early this morning).

Great application. Interface is incredibly easy and it works well. And who can beat that pricetag?? :)

Woo! Love it. What a great app. Though the shared disk isn't showing up in the shared column. Hmm. Should probably go over the help file again.

Can you create a file on the iPhone to share via Air Sharing? For example: Can I take a picture and then send it to my PC? I tried this the other day, but couldn't figure it out. The only thing I know how to do is add files via the PC to iPhone.

No.

You can't take a photo and then use "Air Sharing" or "Files" to transfer it to your PC. That said, though, you don't need any apps to transfer your photos from the iPhone to your PC. Just connect them via the USB cable and then look in Windows Explorer for your iPhone, which should show up as another drive. All the photos you've taken using your phone will show up in there.

Thanks for the information. I know you could always plug the iPhone into the PC, but a wireless solution would be nice.

E-mailing it would be wireless. :) There's probably an app in the App Store that does what you want.

I'm not sure if you're looking specifically for something that works with photos, or if that was just an example, but I just purchased TextGuru for 99-cents (sale price). It allows you to create documents (.txt, .htm, .php, .js, etc.) on your iPhone and e-mail or copy them to a computer over wifi. Honestly it's a bit flaky, but apparently an update is pending Apple's approval so I opted for it before the price went back up. The coming update is said to allow horizontal text entry; something I'm looking forward to.
