    iFile, its better then mobile finder! Not sure if its been posted before, but I just started using it today and its great!

    iFile is a snappy iPhone or iPod touch file system browser and document viewer. You can browse, view, copy and paste, and rename files with ease. Simply tap away to move through folders, the top left button takes you up a level. To select files, pressing the edit button it allows you to select multiple files like selecting emails in Mail. Once you’ve made a selection, press the bottom right button to Copy or Cut your selection then navigate to the directory you would like to paste the files in and bring up the Edit menu and press the same button to paste. The trash can on the left deleted the files you’ve selected.

    iFile can view HTTP files, movies, sound files, images, text, PDF, and Microsoft Office files (Doc, xls, ppt, etc) and edit them!

    iFile also will make your device a web server, accessable from any web browser connected on the same network. Simple hit the WiFi bars on the bottom left and it initilizea the server spitting out the IP addresses for you to punch in on your local machine. No more need for SSH.

    It also opens HTML's in there own window and you can edit them! Great for editing widgets.

    There is a lot more it can do. I have only been using it for a few hours now and so far its great! Its faster then mobile finder too! oh it can arcive too!!

    I'll post screen shots later. Get it on the bigboss repo.

    Nice, but it's better to put the finder icon on it

    I'd so get this if I was jailbroken. I might just have to jailbreak for this.

    There should be an "edit" button on the top left when you are viewing.

    Yea I just tried with a .doc and I cant do anything. You can edit .txt, .html, .css and so on, but it looks like there is no microsoft office editing. Maybe they will add that in an update.
