>> If you own a previous iPod, you can use it as a disk to store and transfer any files that you want. But the iPhone or iPod Touch, Apple currently doesn't let you do that. I'm Brian Tong with CNET.com and in today's Quick Tip we'll show you how to use it like a hard drive with the help of some third party software. Now for the Mac, check out an app called PhoneView from Ecamm networks. It's free for the first seven days and 20 dollars after that. Now, not only does it give you access to your iPhone's disk but you can also edit and create notes from your Mac to the iPhone and explore your SMS messages or call out to your computer. Now on the Windows side, you wanna check out Touch Copy from Wide Angle Software. It's a 15-day trial and 25 dollars for the application. It's not as robust as PhoneView but it gives you the ability to drag and drop files onto your iPhone or iPod Touch. Now another benefit, there is both OS X and Windows versions of the software. So there you go. I'm Brian Tong with CNET.com and now you can use your iPhone like a disk drive. ^M00:00:57 [ Music ]
