Zoomit- developers are finally taking advantage of the 30 pin connector on the iPhone/Touch:
ZoomIt does for the iPhone what Apple’s new camera connection kit will do for the iPad: It is a $60 SD card reader which plugs into the dock connector and lets you transfer not just photos but all kinds of other media.
The ZoomIt dongle pairs with a free iPhone application to do its magic. Slot in the card, fire up the app and you’ll have access to documents, music and video along with the photos from your camera. These files can all be moved to a local storage area on the iPhone, but only the photos can be moved to and from the iPhone’s own photo albums.
The reader and the functionality are both sound, and $60 isn’t far off what you’d pay for a pro card reader anyway. But the software is ugly as hell: You know the bundled crap you often get with a printer or scanner, something that seems to have been thrown together in an afternoon with ugly icons and weird, useless extra features? This is it. It even has a battery status indicator on screen — right below the iPhone’s own battery icon. Weird, right?
Boxnet is an update, but possibly still new to many people (I use Dropbox, a similar type system)
Box.net provides cloud-based file-sharing and collaboration tools aimed at business users. A variety of iPhone apps already integrate with the service.
Of course, Box.net offers an iPhone app of its own as well, and on Monday the company announced that the app has been upgraded with oodles of new features. In addition to the app's core functionality—which lets you view and share your files—the new version incorporates the ability to comment upon the documents and folders you're sharing. That way, you can exchange notes with your colleagues on important documents, from anywhere.
Box.net also announced Tuesday new integration with the iPhone app Quickoffice. The app, which allows you to create, view, and edit Microsoft Word and Excel documents from your iPhone, can now open files from (and save files to) Box users' accounts.
