iPhone questions and help
I was wondering if anyone here would be willing to give me a rundown and possibly lead me in the right direction
iPhone is amazing but it is lacking some key elements that truly makes a flawless device. This is what I want:

Drag and drop file access via USB or bluetooth. Mainly for photos. Would like it to be as simple as a USB flash drive. Synching photos in iTunes greatly reduces size and resolution. I dont want to email photos to the camera roll, ffs.

The ability to download any file on iPhone and then transfer via Bluetooth or USB. Should be so easy.


Can anyone help me here?
Also, where the F is the crossfade for music?

Should I just jailbreak it? If I did could someone guide me through it? Will jailbreaking it cause problems with the device or warranty? Can you easily go back to factory settings after you unlock it?


Any help is appreciated.
Thanks

Good questions.

I want to know about jailbreaking as well.

Come on, I know someone here must be an utimate iPhone wizard.

Why in gods name have they butchered the photo transfer process? There isn't even an option to keep full res when synching photos. What is this, 1999?

Re: iPhone questions and help
jailbreaking wont help with that, unless you want to use ssh which is mad slow and a pain in the ass.


apple wont let you use it as a flash drive...get a $5 flash drive.


photos can only be synced through itunes...or maybe with picasa and the google app. havent tried that.

Re: iPhone questions and help
the only things jailbreaking has allowed me to do that is special:

change font
install Backgrounder (can multitask apps)

Re: iPhone questions and help
hi I was real slow adapting to os x -- I liked managing my own files in os 9

with x the mac just kind of wanted to take over which raised up my stubborn resistance. for years I fought, trying to make the mac do things my way

finally I surrendered to the mac world and let it do its thing. having much more hard drive space has really helped. and backup drives. as a result I've got multiple photos, songs etc stored all over the place buried deep and tough to manage. it's frustrating but I haven't lost any data in years and years and years :-)

I'm trying some apps to get rid of duplicates :-)

now I know this doesn't answer your specific questions. I guess what I'm trying to say is when I did surrender and let mac do it's thing it freed me up to enjoy my computer instead of worrying so much. by the time iPhone came out I was surrendered -- and rather than carping too much about what it couldn't do I have instead enjoyed it immensely

the mac world isn't perfect but for me it's the best thing going. since surrendering I have very few problems. me trying to manipulate and make mac do things my way equals lost data. me surrendering equals redundancy but I can live with that :-)

hey as for photo res this is a cool era -- in the future we'll look back at these primitive photos and see them as charming and quaint -- kind of like pics from the 1800s or something. this era will pass as things continue to progress.

the iPhone is not a flash media storage device solely it is a computer and functions as a mac. I understand your frustration but as was pointed out flash storage devices are cheap. I use those for what they're good for and my iPhone for what it's good for.

I fully understand your frustration -- I repeat I've been much happier since I just surrendered and let mac do its thing.

peace rb

I too salivated over the iPhone and all its coolness, all the while overlooking its flaws. But they were there ... nagging me. Then, lo and behold comes the Droid from Google/Verizon. Everything the iPhone is and all that it isn't. The community is small right now, compared to the iPhone, but that's going to change swiftly over the next year. Honestly, now that I've had mine a few months, I PREFER it to every other device on which I work -- computer, laptop, iPhone, etc. I wish I could plug a keyboard and monitor into the thing and just run it.

Re: iPhone questions and help
after you jailbreak it you can google iphonebrowser, it will let you do it. itunes must be installed.

Drag and drop (for windows) Windows 7 does not seem to play to nice with this app though.

drag n drop's the lingo for how you move stuff around on a computer. u know you click a file, drag it to a folder or device, 'drop' it in by letting it go.

got it?

Drag and drop file access via USB or bluetooth...
 Quoting: Anonymous Coward 856674



here ya go OP... XPlay 3 does what your looking for. makes your iphone, touch or pod appear like an extra drive on your system. open that drive and you can brows it's file structure just like windows folders...

here's the rundown...
[link to www.mediafour.com]

here's the download for the trial...
[link to www.mediafour.com]

3 things i REALLY dig about it

* once installed, there's no new software or browser to learn. it just detects your apple device and assigns it a drive letter like any other usb drive.

* it runs supper lite therefore FAST like a usb. since there's no browser or other software to navigate (like slow ass itunes) you won't even notice you installed it.

* did i say it's easy and FAST????

all you'll need is your iphone/pod usb cable.

(you do not have to uninstall itunes which is nice. you may want to change tunes from being the auto loading ware when the phone get detected.)

me, i have my pc set so only xplay loads when i plug in. most of the time i only plug in to charge. but i transfer junk more than dl stuff from tunes...

Re: iPhone questions and help
ps- now you know why, in this cyber world filled with gigs and gigs of cheap and FREE storage solutions, the big propitiatory names get away with charging so damn much for an only slightly larger capacity variations of the same device.

once you add the drag n drop capability to your handheld, you can get a usb TERABYTE for less than $100 and move junk around for years before running out of space.

what's retarded is jailbreaking/voiding warr with experimental crap on a $500+ device to accomplish something a free or $29 computer software can do.

everybody i know that ever jailbroke (that didn't end up with a useless brick afterwords) always un-jailbreak within a few days anyway because a neato wallpaper's hardly a worthy trade for dependability and access to the legit stuff.

I jailbroke mine and I couldn't be more happy with it.
I can install anything for FREE plus other non official software like video recording and bluetooth able to communicate with other devices.
The GPS alone (Moblie Navigator) was VERY expensive and I got it for FREE.
