Air Transfer

in iPhone, iPod, iPad, iTunes

Air Transfer allows iOS7 (or above version of iOS) users to transfer or view files from Mac or Windows PC to your iPhone or iPad over the air. Drag and drop any file of a supported type onto the Air Transfer dashboard in your PC’s browser and it will appear on the Air Transfer app screen on your iDevice. That file can also be viewed within the app without transferring it to iDevice. You can watch movies, listen songs, view documents from your desktop PC in iDevice without copying or transfer.

Supported formats are text (text memo), bookmark (website addresses), Photos, music, movie and documents. The transferred items are auto-classified into 7-categories according to their type. Air Transfer can work in background mode, so you can switch to other apps without stopping current transfer if any.

You can import or export photos from camera roll, email, SMS, Instagram, facebook, Twitter, Flickr or Picassa. Transfer or play directly. Supported file formats are JPEG, PNG, GIF, QuickTime Movie(.MOV, .MP4), MP3, WAV, CAF, PDF Docs(.pdf), Text(.txt), RTF(.rtf), MS Word(.doc, .docx), MS Excel (.xls, .xlsx), MS PowerPoint(.ppt, .pptx), Pages(.pages), Numbers(.numbers), Keynote(.keynote) and HTML(.html, .htm).

We made a test. Here are the screenshots.
