DiskAid for USB File Transfer Mac + PC 100% Free
Windows users are familiar with iPhoneBrowser, an awesome little program that allows file transfer via USB cable from a Windows computer to iPhone or iPod Touch. Historically OS X users have been without a USB file transfer program and have relied on sftp to access the iPhone's file system via wifi.
In steps DiskAid.
DiskAid is a nice little client that allows file transfer via USB to the iPhone. Now Mac users can transfer files via USB just like the Windows folks. DiskAid is a quick, 100% free download for either Mac or PC.
Just run DiskAid, plug in the iPhone or iPod Touch and you're good to go! Simply drag and drop to copy files and folders between your computer and your iPhone or Ipod Touch. Couldn't be easier!
You can grab your very own free copy of DiskAid from their site.

I remember reading some stuff in some other forums, that these kind of programs (there was another popular one, did the same through WiFi, can't remember the name though) install a deamon on your phone the first time you connect them. Does anybody know, if that's true?
And if it is, does diskaid do so too?

this is by far the easiest way to get access to your phone, especially for people unfamiliar with ssh.

the ONLY app i have missed from my switch from xp to osx is ifunbox. Now i have diskaid, oh yeah, the upgrade is complete.

Wow, yeah this has been around for a bit. I feel bad for not sharing the news over a month ago when I found via a google search... I guess I assumed it was no good and that's why everyone was using WinSCP (for windows anyway).
Haven't tried it yet, but I'm sure it handles larger transfers much faster than wifi.
