The beauty of iPhone apps is their inherent ability to add functionality to the iOS by modifying the limitations and restrictions of the core OS.

Graphics and Documentation:

The Phone Drive iPhone app offers simplistic graphics, but they are clear and easy to read. Menus load without any lag or drag, and the entire interface was snappy, and a pleasure to utilize.

The only slight concern I had when working with Phone Drive is that the app offers so much, yet there was little documentation to support the user knowledgeable. I would have preferred an easy to access help section which offered more information than limited browser support.


Phone Drive offers tremendous value. Although there is a lite version, the full version is only $.99, and for under a dollar, you receive significant value delivered from  easily accessing your files, transferring them and remotely accessing them via HTTP and FTP, peer to peer file transfer via WiFi or Bluetooth, media file access and management, and a whole lot more.

Phone Drive [ iTunes Link ] requires iOS 3.1.3 or later and is compatible with iPhone, iPod touch, and iPad. A small expedite fee was paid by the developer to speed up the publication of this review.
