MegaPhone 1.5 adds notes
Ecamm Network has released MegaPhone 1.5, the latest version of its iPhone utility. The program was formally known as iPhoneDrive, and lets users view and export iPhone content via their Mac. Some functions include the ability to export call history or SMS messages, and copy music, movies and other files on and off. Version 1.5 lets users finally insert their own items into the iPhone's native Notes application, so that files can be viewed and edited away from a computer.
Supported file types for Notes include not just standard text files, but PDF documents and other formats; to manage this information, files are simply dragged in and out of the application. MegaPhone costs $20, and requires Mac OS X 10.4.10 or later, along with iTunes 7.3. The software can also be used in limited fashion with an iPod touch.
