Your iPhone, Your Web Server for File Sharing

A new app that makes the iPhone into a web server has appeared in Japan's iTunes App Store.

A new app that makes the iPhone into a web server has appeared in Japan's iTunes App Store. The app, called Serversman@iPhone (Google Translated Press Release), was developed by a Japanese company called Freebit.

The app allows iPhone users to exchange files with computers via uploading and downloading via a browser or by using the webDAV protocol. Direct connection for file transfers is available on a local area network containing all the devices. Otherwise use of VPN software provided by Freebit is recommended.

The app is currently only available in the Japanese iTunes App Store, but an English version of the app is coming in March. The app also supports the iPod touch. It joins the long list of other file exchange, file view, and file sharing apps available for the iPhone and iPod Touch.
