PhoneView 2.0 ships
Ecamm has announced the release of PhoneView 2.0, a new edition of a program formerly known as MegaPhone. The software lets iPhone and iPod touch owners manage the contents of their devices, beyond just music, videos and photos to include notes, contacts and SMS messages, as well as call histories. Notes can be automatically created from PDF and Word files as well as regular text documents. For backup or transport purposes, any collection of Mac files or folders can be copied over.
The v2.0 software introduces searches, and lets users add and edit notes without rebooting for each alteration. Similarly, undo and redo commands for notes have been added. Also new is full access to an iPhone's Contact List, and the automatic archival of SMS and call history. Finally, files are saved with correct creation dates, and synched photos can be browsed by album. PhoneView 2.0 costs $20, and requires Mac OS X 10.4.11 and iTunes 7.3.
