Ive searched and havent found much info about sharin music from my mac to my phone.
I record alot of music on my mac, so i spend alot of nights in bed listening to mixes of mine. But its a hassle to sync and delete every updated mix to my phone through itunes.
Is there a way i could set up a sort of 'drop box' to drag mixes into and be able to stream or access from my iphone? For free?

check the tracking device
download an app called fileapp on your iPhone. to wirelessly sync content, download cyberduck on your mac (http://cyberduck.ch) and follow the instructions on the website. once its all set up, just drag and drop content. It works for most files and filetypes, not just music. :)

If you put your mixes into iTunes, the iPhone can access the mixes via HomeSharing. The catch is that your Mac needs to be left on.

For Home Sharing to work, you'd need to leave the Mac logged in ... and have iTunes opened. As for the no-wifi thing, you could always set up your Mac to share the internet over an ad-hoc network. Basically, your Mac becomes the router. Caveat - not sure if Home Sharing works over an ad-hoc network.
