    Hi All,

    I want to create an application to explore iphone sync with windows pc using MFC/c++.
    This application should view all files and folders in iphone on pc.
    For this which sdk should i use.

    How will this differ from other wireless/USB directory browsing software?
    Are you trying to include some sort of alternate sync as well?

    I have found other browsing software which does hack on iTunes dll known as iTunesMobileDevice.dll, which I don't prefer. I have found iTunes COM interfaces
    for windows, will this be useful for retriving files from iPhone

    you are going for something that is right around the corner with the new OS, I would suggest you focus on something to do with HDMI if you are that good, just my opinion
