Have you ever been in a situation where you've run out of data storage space, lost your pen drive, or simply need a quick backup solution?
If you've got an iPhone or iPod Touch, DiskAid allows you to take advantage of their ample storage space by enabling you to use them as external USB drives. Although the name sounds like some kind of disk maintenance utility, it's exclusively for iPhone and iPod touch file transfers. Used in conjunction with an application called FileAid (available from the Apple Apps Store), DiskAid allows you to listen to or play audio files directly from your device.
Using it is simple - just attach your device and DiskAid automatically detects the files. You can select the files that you want to work with and click preset buttons across the top such as 'Copy to Mac', 'Copy to Device', or 'Delete from Device'. You can stop transfers at any time simply by clicking the Stop symbol. Otherwise, you can also drag and drop files into the DiskAid interface. You can create new folders within your devices and there's no jailbreaking needed to use it.
The only slightly annoying thing with DiskAid is that some of the file names are shortened or hyphenated when transferring to your device meaning that it can be tricky to identify which files correspond to what. All in all however, this is a minor drawback.
DiskAid is a solid and simple application for anyone that wants to use their iPhone or iPod Touch as an external storage device.
