Any idea when this is getting released? It should be a must have app...
i had no idea what datacase was before today. for others like me, you can see a demo video of it here.
or from their homepage:
This is what I find incredibly frustrating about the app store. The developers released DataCase almost a week ago (a week tomorrow if memory serves) and it still hasn't been approved, yet we've gotten more sudoku, calculators, tip applications, to-do lists, and other duplicate apps.
And no, I have nothing to do with developing the app, this just happens to be the one I've probably been most anticipating.
Yea, it is very anoying that we are getting so many repeats and the "good stuff" isn't coming out. I wonder if Apple tries to stager big releases to keep people interested for a greater length of time. We are currently waiting on the new versions of DataCase, iProcrastinate, and MobileChat all of which have been submitted. In the mean time we got "I am Rich"...
thats because simple games and smaller easier applications do not access the rest of the phone's os, so there is a lot less to test for. If an app is going to move files, apple wants to MAKE SURE that it is a safe app with no mal ware.. I dont understand why people dont get this??
The better the app, the more functions it has, the longer it is going to take to pull it apart to make sure it is safe!
Yea, that makes sense, but do you know how much code is in this app compared to sudoku? I don't. Just because it access more API's doesn't make it more complex code. In fact, that would make more of the code recognizeable.
What I think they'd look for, if they were looking for something, is that it doesn't send out personal information along with files. That'd be a disaster. Apps aparently can't do that even if you tell them to!!! (ie. Aurora Feint)
This is, of course, total speculation on your part. You have no clue, just the like the rest of us.
Assuming for a moment that this is the case, maybe Apple should use some of their revenue to hire a few more folks to speed up the process. DataCase is the only app I've paid much attention to during the development phase, but if they've been missing out on a weeks worth of sales, it does make me wonder how many other developers are in the same boat.
i do "have a clue" how this app would work. If it is downloading and moving files,t hen it HAS to have access to the OS's file management system, which in it of it's self is going to put up some extra red flags because apple does not want to release an app that might add some malicious files and programs to your phone (rightfully so)
So that means that already, they have do go through one more hurdle than say, sudoku. Sudoku might have the MOST complex code on the planet, but because it does not access other functions of the iphone, and all of it's code works within the application, then it will not put up any red flags. Because if the app does not access other functions of the iphone, it would be impossible to "plant" malicious files elsewhere.
Even apps that work with the iphone's contact list, web browser, and email are going to go through more rigorous testing than games that do not have that function because of the reach of the actual application.
I still do not see how this is so hard to understand. it makes sense.. A LOTmore sense than a conspiracy against the developers like i have seen mentioned in other threads.
A lot of things "make sense," but that doesn't necessarily mean they're true. Again, you're just guessing like the rest of us, but that's your prerogative. I certainly don't think it's a conspiracy on Apple's part, but I do think it's poor planning and poor customer service (both for users and developers).
I am looking forward this and mobile chat the most. hopefully it wont be much longer.
The problem with this type of app at the moment is that they require both the host PC and your iPhone to be part of the same wireless network, to me that is pretty much useless as a lot of the PC's I work with don't even have WiFi cards. Until someone comes out with functionality similar to turning the iPhone into a USB Mass Storage Device (if that is even possible) then all of these apps are a bit pointless to me.
I don't know about that... I can see the same wifi network for syncing purposes. Wouldn't Mobile Me work better in your case?
Where? Its not in the App Store yet...just checked.
It's on the main page of the app store for me when I click on "all iPhone applications".
Search for it maybe? It might come up then (not being sarcastic in suggesting you search.)
Also, there's a new app called MobileFinder which looks interesting. Same basic file manager/viewer type idea.
Added: It's on page 2 of this list as well, http://appstorefeed.com/upcoming
found it: http://phobos.apple.com/WebObjects/MZStore.woa/wa/viewSoftware?id=287464320&mt=8
not sure if that link will work
I see it posted on the link you provided but it does not pull...search or other wise in the App Store.
Even iPhone App Store says no matches
Got it...never mind...it still does not show under search and there is no freebies for the first downloaders. it is as noted below!
It worked for me. Can't wait to get home and try it!
And it's only $6.99. Assuming it works as advertised, that's a nice price.
I was, though, hoping for iWork compatibility on the file viewing. Maybe for a future update.
you can also just go to the app store then form the left hand side select "All iPhone Applications" and sort them by recently added
OK, Now that DataCase was just released this afternoon, who's downloaded it? We need details man!!!! There are no reviews yet...
also look at Mobile Finder:
seems pretty full featured, only 1.99 and supports iWork files.
I have it...can't review it cause there are no instructions. The video at the web site shows HOW to use it, but no where on setup. I guess I am just stupid or blind
Give me a few minutes. Just downloaded it.
i downoaded it and when I opened it on my tpod touch my ipod touch showed up in the finder on my mac and I just dragged and dropped the files I wanted to move. works pretty good for me so far.
Just posted a review. Basically, it seems to work perfect! Viewed the files I copied over, and it was a piece of cake to get it to work. You basically launch the program and the phone shows up in the finder as a shared volume. Copy over and view the files on the phone. Works perfect!
