Have you ever wanted to easily browse the folders on your iPhone or iPod Touch in Windows Explorer or OS X Finder? Phone Disk makes it easy to do this, and you can get it for free until December 1st.
By default, your computer will recognize and let you browse the pictures folder on your iOS device when you connect it to your computer, but you can’t just browse through any folder on your device. Phone Disk lets you mount your iOS device like any other removable storage, so you can browse through many of your application’s folders and open files directly on your PC. You still won’t be able to access everything on a stock device, but it lets you do much more than you can by default. Best of all, you can get it free if you download and install it before December 1st, 2010.
If you happen to miss the special, you can still get iPhone Explorer for free, which lets you browse your device’s files from a special interface. Either way, you’ll be able to browse your iOS files easier than iTunes allows.
