    Hi there. I am looking for an app that will give me access to my iphone via Wifi. In particular I want to ability to upload/download to and from the iphone's Camera Roll. I know EZSHARE gives access to the Camera Roll. Does ReaddleDocs/Flash Drive? What about iStorage or AirSharing?

    Never mind - I don't think I understand the question as it applies to ReaddleDocs.

    Let me elaborate...I know all of the apps I mentioned above gives me access to the iphone like a flash drive. I can then move files back and forth between the iphone and PC. What I really want is a way to easily download photos and movies from the Camera Roll to my Pc without having to connect to itunes via USB. EZShare give me direct access to the Camera Roll directory. Does any of the above mentioned programs do this as well?

    ReaddleDocs allows direct access to the camera roll, but I am not sure about getting them to the computer from there via Wi-Fi. It apparently doesn't let you see images in other folders, though. I don't have Readdle Flash Drive.

    I do have Air Sharing (but not Air Sharing Pro). It does not give you access to the camera roll on the iPhone. I also have File Magic, another flash drive-like app. It also does not give you access to the camera roll.

    I am fairly sure you will not be able to put things into the camera roll from the computer, but you would have no trouble adding images to the iPhone in other folders with any of them. And they all have their own file viewers for displaying documents and images. But I don't think that you will be able to see images transferred by any of them to the iPhone with the Photos app on the phone.

    I am at work now and not where I can connect to a computer via Wi-Fi to check. If I learn something useful to you this evening, I'll return and update.

    Edit: Another thought: Are you opposed to using a different photo manager than the native Photos? If so, something like SplashPhoto will allow you to manage your photos over Wi-Fi. But that one won't let you access the Camera Roll directly either.

    Edit 2: Oops. Actually Splash Photo will let you access the Camera Roll and any other folders of images that are contained in the native Photos application. You can transfer them from there into SplashPhoto, which does sync to a desktop companion application via Wi-Fi.
