Sometimes you need a handy mobile storage device to move files around between locations. You could use a flash drive or an external disk, but why not make use of that 16GB phone that you carry with you all the time?

iPhoneDisk is a MacFUSE based filesystem for the iPhone. Simply install MacFUSE, then install iPhoneDisk, and your iPhone will be usable as a general storage device. When you connect it via USB, it will show up on your desktop just like a USB drive would. You’ll always have a convenient external disk on hand, and it’s one less thing you need to carry around with you.

  1. Why would that be handy ? So when I go to a client or friend with data I have to bring a cable and they have to install that software ? Why not use an USB stick ? they are cheap, small and can contain more data then my iphone. And if you want to carrie data on the Iphone there are better options available in the app store.

  2. This is what I was thinking: you need to bring the cable, install the apps (from internet or from another stick? why don’t use those for the data transfer?). And it seems that it’s Mac only.
    Good for “done because it can be done” but not many points for practicality.

  3. heh. My inexpensive nokia does this without installing software on pretty much any somewhat modern system (win, lin and mac). It’s pretty idiotic that an otherwise awesome phone wouldn’t just do it right out of the box. This is not a “feature” it’s basic functionality, and it’s why I don’t own an iphone.

  4. ther is simpler solution to that..although it requires jailbroken iphone. You simply instal OpenSSH on you iphone and you can access and use your iphone as portable HD using simple FTP client, it requires Wireless conection tho, no need for cables.
