Mobile Me - Part Three (iDisk)

If you are already a MobileMe user, you can now download iDisk to your iPhone for free. iDisk lets you store, access, and share files online. With 20GB of space in your MobileMe membership, large files are not a problem. You can access iDisk from any web browser, Mac, PC, iPhone or iPod Touch.

There is a public folder included with iDisk allowing you to share files. This is a great way to send pictures and files that would otherwise be too large for email. You simply upload what you want to share, choose the contact(s) to share with, and iDisk sends them an email with a link to download. You can select a password for enhanced security and even set the number of days you wish the download link to be available. Now you don't have an excuse for not sending the parents pictures of their grandkids!

With the latest MobileMe iPhone application, you can now view Microsoft Office and iWork documents, and PDF's anytime you carry your iPhone/iPod with you. This is a great tool for personal use and work. You never know when you might need access to a large file with little notice. Now with MobileMe and your iphone this will never be a problem. You will literally have access at your fingertips!

  1. I love Apple's MobileMe's iDisk! phew...

    20GB is huge. I must admit I still burn all my pictures and movies onto disks because I just don't trust a third party to keep all my stuff safe - forever!
