    Default Air Sharing for iPhone - Get it while itís Free!
    As I was crusing the net and watching the lastest about the "Lets Rock" Event I ran across this app.... then I went to itunes and grabbed me a copy of it....

    So far everyone that has downloaded it likes it.. 4 1/2 Stars! So get your copy while its free! Its only free for two weeks after that $6.99


    Avatron Software has released Air Sharing for the iPhone - and its an app youíre going to want to pay attention to. With Air Sharing you can mount your iPhone or iPod Touch as a wireless drive on a Mac or PC running Windows or Linux.

    It features pinch zooming in the file browser, and full landscaping for every app feature.

    Best of all - for a limited time - itís FREE to download. After the first two weeks of release the application will be priced at $6.99. If you want, you can click here, and get it for FREE while it lasts.

    It does look like an awesome app but it's a pain trying to get it working on Vista-64. I can access it through a web browser but I can't add files to it or add it to my network.

    (I've installed the "fix" they suggest, tried 2-3 WebDAV clients, nothing works for me )

    I'm a helpful jerk, fear me.

    If you get it now, you won't have to pay when the price changes.

    Not sure if I will use it, but I might as well get it before they charge for it!

    Create a symlink to your dtunes seeqpod download path using ssh and then when you turn Air Sharing on, you can browse your seeqpod downloads and subsequently import them into your itunes library to be re-synced properly back onto your device.

    I cd'd to the Documents folder of Air Sharing's installed path and did a: ln -s /var/mobile/Library/Downloads seeqpod

    Now when I browse http://iphonename.local:8080 on My Network places in Windows, I can go into the seeqpod folder and grab my stuff.

    Enjoy!

    Default Air Sharing symlink
    When I tried to symlink /var/mobile/Library/Downloads/ to documents folder in Air Sharing it shows up as a unknown document in the Air Sharing app. Has anyone else tried this?

    Thanks! I had to do some research but need a few more peices to make it work.

    I found symlink info: (yes I'm a Linux newbie)
    Symbolic link - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

    -I have dtunes, (love it)
    http://www.modmyi.com/forums/news/33...-but-free.html

    -SSH, I setup via Cydia home page instructions, for windows I use WinSCP
    WinSCP :: Free SFTP and FTP client for Windows
    (works great, can transfer files, and open a terminal window etc)

    Where is the Air Sharing's install path?
    I found the applications folder where all the jailbreak apps go, but I'm assuming the appstore location is elsewhere. I'm learning fast but just need that final bit. thanks

    This app is useless for jailbroken iphones. We already have something called Open SSH.

    not quite, it's pretty helpful. I use SSH too but air share makes it nice because:

    1) makes it so you can quickly connect and transfer files if you are at a friends computer too.

    2) we can drag and drop mp3 files downloaded via "d"tunes to be imported to itunes library easily

    3) It dummy proofs everything a bit more for people that dont want to bother with the whole SSH install/setup/password thing

    I'm not sure how safe dtunes is. It searches for mp3's on the net.. and you could end up downloading a corrupt mp3 that might mess up your iphone. You never know.

    What makes you say that? Can you give an example? How dangerous is a corrupt mp3 file?

    Actually, I don't think a corrupt mp3 file can mess up your iphone. But I would make sure to listen to the mp3 first before hitting the download button.

    Are you familiar with the MacOS?

    Its really not that fragile when it comes to things like this.

    dTunes is safe, and a corrupt mp3 just will end abruptly or not even play, so you're safe

    As for my symlink, I've got it going to Datacase. I like Airshare, thought I'd download it anyway incase they add better features that Datacase down the line
