Since we carry our iPhones (and sometimes iPods) with us no matter where we go, why not carry a few documents as well?  I choose three application that are useful for using your iPhone as a remote storage device.   If there is one I missed that offers unique functionality, please let me know.

I think most of us are familiar with USB drives to move files around. Well, with iPhones having 8, 16 and 32 gigs of memory, there is plenty of space to put documents, like spreadsheets and powerpoint , images, music and so on on the phone such that we can have access to it at all times. If you are in sales, how cool would it be to have a collection of presentation documents available at anytime?

For those of you without jailbroken phones, just keeping moving along.. nothing to see here.. Ok, for the rest of you, there are 4 programs out there for taking video and for me, one that I cannot seem to get to work.

Cycoder: This is a pretty good app with a very simple UI. Start and stop. That’s it. The video is compiled on the fly and saved as a .mov file. If you used cycoder when it first came out, it did not have sound. Well, we have sound now.

I took the movie below using Cycoder, and given how much action there is in the scene, its not that bad.  Lets keep in mind this is a phone not spec’ed for taking movies after all. )
