    I'm in a bit of a rush to get out, but I want to take some PDFs with me to consume whilst out... What's the recommended application to achieve this? I think the only one I know of is.... FileMagnet? or something like that....

    Thanks all

    Thats the only one I've ever heard of. TUAW rated it pretty good if I remember right.

    This will only work if you are on the same network. ie: in your home on a wifi connection you can use it fine but if you leave you have no access to your files. At least that is what the description says and the reviews as well.

    There is another one called TouchFS, but I think it costs more than FileMagnet and seems similar.

    I am also waiting for DataCase.

    Really? What's the point then? If I can only use it at home, I might as well just use my computer, which is going FAR more intuitive to use to view files than the Touch. I don't get the point. Does anyone know if this is how Datacase will be too?

    same wifi network, not home wifi network
    so you could access them from any computer with the filemagnet app on it, as long as they are on the same network, ie office, friends house, or on a wifi network created by the pc

    or just email them to yourself

    What he means is you can only LOAD files onto your Touch if it is on the same network as your Mac.

    Once you load your files onto your Touch, you can view them anywhere because they are now on your Touch.

    Forgot to mention I was in Spain - didn't fancy paying £3 per MB for the pdfs!

    FileCase is now in beta, and their website says they are hoping to launch very soon.

    There's a Youtube clip on their website showing the app, it looks very good.

    It costs £3 per MB to email yourself some pdfs? Even if you're on your home wifi network? Or are you traveling and at an internet cafe?
