    Go to the "More Info" available through Installer. That will tell everything you need to know.

    Erica's Utilities are a collection of command line utilities a kin to those available through Terminal (on a Mac).

    Catch And Throw:
    Bonjour like file sharing. This allows other iPod Touches and iPhones to catch files they throw at each other. Sort of like the Zune.

    doAlert:
    Pops a Message Box up with whatever message you want.

    ip-print:
    Gets the ip of the iPod/iPhone

    playaudio:
    Does what it say, it plays audio from the command line. Maybe you'd like to play a certain sound at a certain point in your app?

    plutil:
    Converts a property list file (.plist) into readable XML

    sendfileByMail:
    Sends the selected file you choose via MobileMail

    snap:
    Takes a screenshot. Useful for taking screenshots of the battery unlock image and several other times when Dock in not on the screen.

    snap2album:
    Gets a screenshot and adds it to your photo library

    toJPEG:
    Converts a .png image into a .jpeg image.

    xwidg:
    Transfers your apps to another folder and removes the symbolic link. this effectively hides your apps for such times as you might want them needed. Like, for example, when you go to the Apple Store.
