The iPhone and iPod touch devices do not have built-in general file transfer capabilities, so each third-party application that requires access to external files is solely responsible for implementing its own file transfer mechanism. The initial release of iSilo™ for iPhone OS, version 1.0, provided the ability to transfer document files to your device by downloading them from a web server.
Version 1.2 implemented a file server within iSilo™ that allows you to connect via Wi-Fi to iSilo™ on your device from a desktop computer to transfer files directly. This article describes how to transfer files with this method using Mac OS X.
These instructions assume the following:
Note that the images shown here may differ from your particular setup depending on the version of iSilo™ you have installed and the version of Mac OS X on your system, but the instructions are pretty much the same. The screenshots in this article were taken on a system running Mac OS X 10.5.5.
In the instructions that follow, the word computer will be used to refer to your Mac OS X computer and the word device will be used to refer to your iPhone or iPod touch device.
