    I was just about to post a thread about this. Glad i saw this one first.

    I haven't downloaded this application yet, and I am somewhat nervous to do so.

    The thing that makes me nervous is giving somebody my MobileMe password. I have some important files on my iDisk that I wouldn't necessarily want others to have access to.

    Can anyone tell me if this is something I should worry about?

    So long as you set a passcode to lock your iPhone they should be safe. Just don't store any sensitive files locally on the iPhone - with MobileFiles you can choose whether to download the file to the local storage or not, before viewing it. Then, if your iPhone gets stolen, just change your MobileMe password, so they can't view your iDisk if they were to manage to get access to the iPhone.

    I'm kind of dissapointed with this app. It's missing some key features for me - go to page / fast-scrolling functionality when viewing large PDFs, and the ability to email a doc to someone. I'll carry on using A.I.Disk for now, as it does have these features.

    this is pretty sweet but why does it says "need a different me account" ?

    does that mean I can't use my current one because of conflict issues? I don't get it.

    I think it actually says "Separate MobileMe Account Required". I believe what they mean is that MobileFiles does not automatically create an iDisk for you. You have to have a MobileMe subscription to access your iDisk.

    So if you have a MobileMe account, you should be fine.

    Sorry to say that MobileFiles doesn't work vor me:
    I always get "Network errors", maybe it is because my account name is
    and the dot makes problems. iStorage and A.I. Disk work fine with MobileMe.

    Problem solved: the new version of MobileFiles now accepts # in passwords.
