    I'm guessing the easiest way for transferring .deb and .ipa files to my iPhone/iPad from my PC is using programs like iExplorer or iTools, some sort of file manager?

    - What application do you use?
    - Do I need to install anything from Cydia for it to work?

    For deb files, install OpenSSH from cydia and use scp or sftp. For ipa files just use iTunes

    iTunes unless I need to access file system then I use iFunbox because i'm not very good with SSHing.

    I'm a little different…

    If I need to work on the file system directly I'll use iFile and Dropbox on the phone.

    If I want to transfer something directly from my Mac to my iPhone, I have Netatalk installed on my iPhone.

    Netatalk allows me to see my iPhone on my network and connect to it just like I would any other computer on my network. The iPhone shows up in Finder as a network drive and I can browse the iPhone file system directly.

    I also have Samba installed so I can do the same on Windows networks.

    Hell of a lot easier than trying to use arcane SSH commands.

    So is iExplorer just a waste of money? What is the best free one?
