    History:

    Air Sharing started off in the App Store as a basic app that would let you store files on an iPod Touch or iPhone. It let users open and view basic documents such as Microsoft's Word, Excel, and Powerpoint as well as Apple's iWork documents. It also had support for images PDFs and html documents.

    Everybody loved this app so much that Avatron Software, Inc. decided to make a Pro version with many more features. The Pro version allows users to add connect to their own iDisks and other severs. It also added support for emailing and printing documents (As of now it only supports printing: PDF, images, plain text, HTML. And is only available on Mac OS X with printing sharing enabled. )

    Review:

    1. Set Up:
    The process of setting up the app and putting stuff on it was an extremely easy process. It gives easy to follow instructions in the app itself under Help Topics on how to set it up on Mac OS X, Windows Vista, XP, Linux, and even a web browser.

    2. Adding Files:
    Adding Files to it was just as easy if not easier than setting it up. Once connected you can just drag and drop file and folders over to the device in Finder (Mac) or Explorer (Windows)

    3. View Files:
    Most All files view just as they would on a computer with no formatting issues. Just tap on the file that you want to open and it opens it immediately.

    4. Printing:
    Printing a PDF, plain text, image or HTML is very easy. Once Printer Sharing is set up on your Mac you can tap and hold on to the file you want to print till a menu pops up at the bottom and select print or you can go in to the file and tap the button in the very bottom right and a menu will pop up with email and print.

    Once You select Print it brings you to a screen with all your available Printers. Select the one you want and it will bring you to a screen that will let you select the pages you want, the number of copies (1-20) and then your Printing options.

    5. Emailing:
    You can email a file the same way you would print. Just tap and hold on to the file you want to email till a menu pops up at the bottom and select email or you can go in to the file and tap the button in the very bottom right and a menu will pop up with email. It will upload you file to a 3rd party server so I wouldn't upload any personal info like name, email, credit card numbers, etc. Once it upload your file it will make a new message to send in mail and all you have to do is add the email to send it to and tap send.

    That kind of sucks, printing would probably be the only reason for me to get air sharing in the first place. W/e though, great review!
