iPhoneBrowser for Windows
An independent coder has developed iPhoneBrowser, a beta Windows-based utility for interacting with files on the iPhone. Using a simple graphical interface, users can drag-and-drop multiple files to and from the device, whether for backup or customization. Though users cannot create or copy folders, the program offers other important features, such as the ability to select and replace a file with another which is automatically renamed. Similarly, if users decide to delete a file from an iPhone, a backup is created before the deletion goes through.
iPhoneBrowser is free, but may require some technical skill to run. Users must first "jailbreak" to get access to an iPhone's files, and once this is done, the application's installer requires the .NET libraries, and particularly "Manzana.dll". It is not officially supported by Apple and downloaders should contact the author for further help.
