How to Use iPhone iPad as a Flash Drive

iTunes, focusing on media organization and enjoyment, does not support some file types like Word, PPT, Page, PDF and DOC.

But with DearMob iPhone Manager, you can mount your iPhone or iPad as a flash drive. That is to say, any of your files, even including the documents that are not incompatible with Apple can be saved to your iPhone / iPad, and be exported to another computer whenever you need. Compared with cloud storage, this method is safer, quicker and independent of network connection.
