    I am looking for a pdf reader that can save pdf files and word docs to my iphone. I did a little research and saw these were the top two. I know datacase is a little pricier ($2) but price is not an issue (I dont say that too often :)

    Which one would you recommend? :D

    I've had both, preferred Datacase as it was able to handle more complex pdf files better but then switched to MobileFiles which knocked the spots off both.

    I use AirShare - super simple and it does what it says.

    Try Memory Stick. It know it can store Word files (unsure about pdfs, but very likely) and its just $0.99.

    Personally, I went the Air Sharing/Datacase route, but yearned for more function at the end of the day. I finally settled on iStorage. It can store/view the files/pics, but you can also create/edit txt files, e-mail them, upload them onto the web, or even download any files off of the internet (via its built-in web browser). It's the best app your going to find as a file manager. The price it $5.99, but its worth every penny.

    I second iStorage.

    The latest update really helped with web downloads.

    It really is the Swiss Army knives of all the file management apps.

    Anybody try JuiceDrop program yet? http://ripdev.com/juicedrop/

    I will as soon as I get my usb cable. No jailbreaking required, free, and seems a bit more convenient than messing with wifi transfers. Great more work's friggin Windows computer too.

    So i decided to purchase Airshare. So far so good. Pretty easy to set up and I do like the auto boomark feature so i don't have to scroll to the page i left off at. Thanks for everyones input

    And a fine update it was. Since this update, I have yet to find a webpage on the internet that can stump iStorage.

    This sounds very interesting, considering the current SDK restricts against USB transfering of files...

    However, this sounds more of a desktop program, rather than an iPhone app. Then, where does it store the uploaded files? That website is lacking in details - sounds like vaporware if you ask me.
