I recommend Goodreader. It works in a similar manner to Air Sharing, such as having its own file system and usb/wifi file transfer.

I'm not sure if Air sharing does this, but Goodreader can connect to all the large cloud storage systems out there e.g. dropbox, skydive, googledrive etc and you can manage all their files with it. Defiantly worth checking out

How is Air Sharing different from other cloud services like Dropbox or Skydrive etc...

Well, drop box is a single cloud storage thingy, as is skydive. Airsharin is a file manager, that allows access to different kinda of cloud storage, as well as access to computers via bonjour, or via SSH. I have Dropbox, etc, but I don't use their app. I use AS.
