Phone Disk: Mount your iPhone in OS X without jailbreaking

Mounting your iPhone as a disk drive in OS X is a bit of a song and dance usually. There’re a number of ways to do it, but most of the time it’s more work than it’s worth.

There’s Air Sharing, there’s Dropbox, and there’s a whole plethora of applications for jailbreakers, but for those of us who prefer to keep our phones in tip-top shape, there isn’t really much available for us. Phone Disk solves the problem, and for a limited time they’re offering their application for free.

All you have to do is input the registration code into the application before December 1, 2010. And just like that, Phone Disk turns your iPhone into a glorified thumbdrive. The application sits in the menubar, waiting for you to attach an iPhone, iPod Touch, or iPad. The icon will turn from monochrome to yellow once your phone is connected. Phone Disk then mounts your iPhone in the Finder and you can access all of your folders in the same way you would any other thumbdrive.

The application name is a little bit of a misnomer, as it also supports the iPod touch and the iPad, and it also works on both OS X and Windows.

You will now be able to open, copy, and save files directly to the iPhone, browse your devices file structure, as well as mount multiple devices at once.

Go get the app before the offer dries up.
