Compatible with iOS 4 and iPhone 4 File Magic is the file transfer utility that allows you to put any type of file on your handheld so you can take it with you. With File Magic, your iPhone or iPod touch acts like a thumb drive or briefcase with some special abilities. Supported file types can be viewed on your iPhone, and other files can be added as a means of transporting them to another computer (between work and home, for example).

Go to http://www.splashdata.com/filemagic to download the FREE File Magic desktop companion software.

File Magic is easy as 1-2-3:

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.

Bonus Features:

- Import your address book to a text file on the desktop to back it up

- Create emails on the desktop and sync to the iPhone application for easy email capability when your desktop is offline (like when you are at the airport and don't want to pay for Wi-Fi access!)

Supported File Types:


.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)

Music - Non-DRM files only (no copy protection)





.m4v - Open a video in QuickTime (7.5 or later); Go to File > Export > Movie to iPhone. Then drag the resulting m4v file into File Magic.

File Magic is great for users of productivity and utility apps such as Air Sharing, File Magnet, WifiTrak, and Keynote Remote.

Great app!

I'm not sure why all the bad reviews??? I have 2 other Splash Data apps and desktop programs and I have no problems with any of them. Maybe these are old reviews and there was problems when released. This post is on 03/08/09 and I had no problems what so ever. The look of the app is the greatest. It's the easiest way to sync your files to iphone in the app store. I think I have them all and this one is the simplest. I like the way you can see all you files on the iphone, transfer them iphone to iphone, and email them. Creating an email and saving it to your iphone is pretty cool too. The best is copy folders with all you files in it.
I hope to see in the future:
Being able to get an email address from address book on both app and desktop program instead of typing them in.
Being able to create your own folders.
Being able to move files from one folder to another on the phone.
I hope these will be added in a future release.
Great job on the app

Great, flexible application!

This is a really useful application. You can carry around almost any kind of files right on your iPhone/touch and view them there as well. The number of file types supported is impressive. And the whole thing couldn’t be simpler to use – drag a file or folder to the top area of the desktop application and it automatically appears on the handheld device filed in the proper category for its file type. No remote server is involved, so your data is always in your own control; you can password protect it on the device too. I’ve tried a number of different file management solutions. Each has advantages, but this one is best all around. Great job! Edit: And now version 2 adds the ability to move files between two iPhones/touches by Wi-Fi when on the same Wi-Fi network. Even better!

5/5 stars

Great Solution for Having Stuff on the Go!

I don't normally review applications but this is one of those few that really reaches out and screams share me with the world!
It has a delightfully easy to use interface and I really enjoy being able to view my stuff on the go (particularly PDFs and Docs of books)!
All in all well worth the price of admission...
