Desktop to iPhone file sharing made easy

Getting files from desktop to iPhone is about as easy as a user could hope for with the assistance of FileApp from DigiDNA. The app allows users to share files between Windows, or Mac, and the iPhone with a simple drag and drop.

The main task behind getting FileApp operational is making a connection between the iPhone and the desktop, but this is easy. Select an OS (Windows XP, Vista, 7, Mac OS X) and a connection method (Wi-Fi or USB) and follow the instructions.

Connecting with Windows via Wi-Fi is nothing more than an FTP address, while OS X calls for the installation of third-party software. Connection via USB for both Windows and Mac is a few simple steps via iTunes. Connecting via Wi-Fi proved to be the quickest and simplest: instructions followed, connection established.

Once you are connected, getting files from desktop to iPhone is nothing more than a drag-and-drop operation. New folders can be added to help organise files, but users cannot drag a file into a folder inside the connected window.

Alternatively, users can use the in-app sort options, A-Z, Date, FileType, to view. Format support is impressive, with image formats JPG, PNG, GIF, and TIFF, and document formats like Word, Excel, PowerPoint, HTML, and PDF all being included. Unfortunately, all are only readable; for ‘power’ features an upgrade to FileApp Pro is needed.

Rated 4 out of 5

An excellent app for quick and simple file sharing and comprehensive file format support.
