DataCase transforms iPhone into wireless data device

updated 03:30 pm EDT, Tue August 12, 2008

DataCase for iPhone/iPod

Veiosoft has launched DataCase for the iPhone and iPod touch. The software promises to turn Apple handhelds into wireless storage devices; users can carry data beyond standard media formats, and reach it from any computer with wireless access. File transfers are drag-and-drop, and support copying from both Macs and PCs. The software further allows viewing Word, PowerPoint, PDF and Excel documents.

On Macs DataCase functions through Bonjour technology, adding iPhones and iPods as an external drive in Finder; in Windows and Linux, file transfers are mainly handled via a web browser. Transfers are also possible through FTP. The app further allows volume creation and control, for separating different data types, or creating limited-access memory. Users can set security permissions for each volume created, of which the limit is 16.

DataCase requires Mac OS X 10.3 for AFP (Apple File Protocol) connections. The actual software is available through the App Store for $7.
