App Preview: MobileFiles Grants Access to your MobileMe files on your iPhone

While we wait for an "official" iDisk app from Apple, the folks over at Quickoffice have released a free app for the iPhone called MobileFiles. This app is different from our recent post about This app is used strictly to access your MobileFiles on the go. There is lots to talk about this app, but what I like the most is that when you access a file from your MobileMe account, it saves it locally for you to access later; without being online. You can even go in and manage what files you want to keep locally or not. Here is a high-level list of things you can do with Mobilefiles:

  • Add multiple MobileMe accounts
  • Add multiple MobileMe public folders
  • View almost any type of supported file
  • Built-in file manager
  • FREE!!!

Quickoffice is also working on an office client for the iPhone as well. Others that have jumped in the document editing area are Documents to Go and Microsoft. Who will be victorious? I can't wait to find out. Do yourself and favor, and if you have a MobileMe account, don't wait, download this awesome app now!

App Preview: MobileFiles Grants Access to your MobileMe files on your iPhone


Got it to work now (error was mostly mine - entering 'Member name' with '', which isn't required, combined with, I presume, incorrect password when I tried without the extension, plus less than clear error messages). Seems to do what it says on the tin but is hampered by slow uploads to iDisk (not the apps fault) and the necessity to select every individual file for download to the device. Ability to download whole folders would be a plus, but syncing of selected folders between iDisk and the local (iPhone) storage would be even better.

Looks interesting. Should try it out but Air Sharing seems better. I use it a lot and haven't had any problems with it.
