Mac or PC:
Files allows you to store and view files on your iPhone or iPod touch. You can connect to Files over Wifi from any Mac or PC and drag and drop files straight from the Finder or Windows Explorer, as you would with any other shared folder.
In fact any client which understands the WebDAV protocol can connect to Files.
You can secure remote access to your data by setting a username and password. And with guest access enabled, friends on your local Wifi network can browse your “Public” folder.
Files supports viewing of many common file types, including most Microsoft Word, Excel and Powerpoint documents, PDF documents, images, text, html, movie and audio files. Documents and images are all displayed fullscreen, in portrait or landscape mode. Zoom and pan via the standard pinch and swipe gestures.
– Most Microsoft Office document are viewable, including limited support for xml documents (Office 2007).
– Image, movie and audio file support is limited to those formats supported by the iPhone OS.
– Apple iWork documents are not formally supported. However if you zip the document before transferring to Files (e.g. Readme.pages.zip) then it will display correctly.
Add bookmarks to longer documents to quickly get at important or often viewed information. And Files remembers where you last stopped reading a document, so that next time you can continue right where you left off.
Use search to find and filter files easily; and delete unwanted items with a simple swipe and tap. You can even set a disk quota to prevent Files using up too much space on your device.
With Files you can take documents with you wherever your iPhone or iPod touch goes, view them and transfer them easily to any compatible Mac or PC.
A Wifi connection is required to connect to Files and transfer documents. Once on your iPhone you can read documents anywhere, no network access required.
See http://www.olivetoast.com/Files for the latest connection instructions and FAQ.
This is especially important if you are connecting from Windows.
Please backup the documents stored in Files on your iPhone/iPod before upgrading. Apple control the upgrade process and it seems that existing documents are not always preserved as they should be.
