My thanks to Hey Mac Software for sponsoring this week’s DF RSS feed to promote Briefcase, their iPhone file transfer app. Briefcase can exchange files between a Mac and iPhone, and from one iPhone to another. Connections are initiated from the iPhone, so you don’t have to diddle with software on both the Mac and iPhone to start a transfer.
In fact, Briefcase is really a full SSH file transfer client, so you can use Briefcase to connect to Linux and Unix servers, in addition to Macs, and to connect to machines that aren’t on the local Bonjour network. The user experience is very well-done; check out the demo movie to see it in action.
Briefcase costs $5, and Briefcase Lite (Bonjour only, and without support for downloading entire directories at once) is free.
