What is perhaps the easiest-to-use computer-to-iPhone file transfer tool has debuted. File Magic, a new Mac or PC and iPhone tandem application purportedly requires only three steps:

  1. Launch File Magic on the desktop and the handheld. The handheld application will ask you to allow the connection.
  2. Drag and drop any file into the File Magic desktop and it will be transferred over Wi-Fi to the device. You will see the progress of the transfer on both the desktop and handheld applications.
  3. Tap the folder, then the file you wish to view on the handheld.

The application is available for both Mac OS X and WIndows XP or Vista.

Supported filetypes, including the following, can be opened on the iPhone once transferred:

  • .doc and .docx (Microsoft Word)
  • .htm and .html (web pages)
  • .pdf (Preview and Adobe Acrobat)
  • .ppt and .pptx (Microsoft PowerPoint)
  • .txt (text)
  • .xls and .xlsx (Microsoft Excel)
  • various music, video and image formats

The application set requires iPhone OS 2.1 or later.

File Magic for the iPhone or iPod Touch is a $5 download from the App Store. The desktop application is free.
