Just Drag and Drop
Uploader apps are limiting and server configurations are painful. That's why DataCase works directly with Finder and Bonjour to make saving files to your iPhone easy. Start DataCase and your Mac already knows that it's there. Drag and drop files just like it was another hard drive. File transfer made easy: just drag and drop.

Mac or PC: Nothing to Install
DataCase works with any computer that has wireless capabilities or is connected to a wireless network. Browse, view, upload, and download your files from finder on a Mac or from your favorite web browser on a PC. You can even save files to your iPhone or iPod Touch using industry standard FTP. DataCase has you covered, no matter what kind of computer you use.
Speaks Your Language
DataCase is fully internationalized for English, French, German, Chinese, and Korean, with more languages on the way. File and folder names are fully UTF-8 compliant, so even if DataCase doesn't speak your native language yet, your files can be named in any language you want.
DataCase allows you to create multiple volumes to separate your data any way you like. Each volume is independent and allows you to define how it can be accessed. You can set read, write, and browse permissions for each, or even make it invisible to anyone but you. Volumes can also be set up to alert you before allowing a connection over the network. With DataCase, you're in control of your data.

Once connected, click on the volume you wish to browse, accept the connection, and use as a normal hard drive.
