I recently got an iphone and i would like to put a few text documents on it. I can't figure it out! I just want to be able to view them from my phone. Can someone please explain the process?

There is no real support for just copying documents to your iPhone and then viewing them built into the device.

You'll have to do something like e-mail the documents to your iPhone and view them through the e-mail function. Or look for a 3rd party application in the app store.

I saw that have released a free iPhone client this morning which will allow you to view all your documents synced with May be worth a look.

By the way, this should really have gone in the OSX Mobile forum. I'm sure some lovely moderator will move it for you shortly (go Nate! nows your chance!)

Howdy, you could also use Air Shairing which is a good viewer of many formats.

Hey Folks,

PBF (Polar Bear Farm) have updated their Note Pad App to v1.5. You can now create notes from your desktop and sync both ways, to and from your device!

Not had a chance to try it yet, but will do later and will update the video on

Nice work PBF
